Songs about matters of the heart are Michael McDonald's bread and butter. In fact, the word "heart" is used several times on this and other McDonald releases (another of the artist's favorite words is "fool," which is nowhere to be found on this album). Highlights include "Get the Word Started," "No Amount of Reason," and the title track, which was a minor hit. Take It to Heart is a bit overproduced at times, but overall it is a nice set by the golden voiced Michael McDonald.
