AllMusic Review by

On her sole MCA album, Melissa Manchester gave melody and lyric equal billing with the synth-drums and other contemporary production techniques, rather than simply serving as a singer over dance tracks, as she had on Emergency. But much of Mathematics was still music-making by computer chip, which meant that she needed a hit single to re-start her career, and the title track, her final chart single, wasn't it. (Our favorite album credit of the year, hands down: "Body by Jake.")
