Comparable to the Cover Girls and Expose, Sweet Sensation was one of the most popular female groups in Latin freestyle, a high-tech style of dance music/disco incorporating elements of Latin music (namely salsa and merengue) and hip-hop. Freestyle has seen its share of faceless assembly-line recordings, but at its best, it can be quite addictive. Sweet Sensation's three members don't have great voices by any means, and most of the songs on Love Child are forgettable and unbearably cliche-ridden. But the CD does have its moments. "One Good Man" and a cover of the Supremes' "Love Child" show how catchy SS can be when they find the right groove. Unfortunately, they don't find it nearly often enough on this generally disappointing album.
