AllMusic Review by

The Nighttime Lovers series hits another milestone with its 20th volume and continues with another round of club-oriented R&B from the '80s -- much of it made with synthesizers and drum machines, and little of it successful from a commercial standpoint. From the artwork to the occasionally rough sound, one has to have an extremely deep fascination with the era and genre to appreciate the Netherlands-based PTG label's efforts. Among the most significant cuts compiled here are Gary Taylor's "Looking Back," Kashif's "Say Something Love," the Ritchie Family's "Real Love," and Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Ain't No Greater Love."
