One of the more depressing and tiresome trends that emerged in the 1980s and has continued into the 1990s is the remix album. While labels sweat out down periods between releases, they often issue discs containing remixes of previous songs by hit acts. This one presented "fresh" versions of Jody Watley smashes "Don't You Want Me," "Friends," "Most of All," "I'm Looking for a New Love," "Real Love" and "Still a Thrill." These provided no insights, imaginative arrangements or surprising twists, and didn't even elicit much response on the dance circuit, since they had already heard club remixes when the songs were originally hits.
