AllMusic Review by

In early 1980, James Brown had an R&B singles-chart entry with the ballad "Regrets," which served as the leadoff track and only respectable tune on this mediocre album of disco retreads. The low point was "That's Sweet Music," which found Brown paying tribute to all forms of pop music, from Loretta Lynn to "new wave rock." You could blame songwriter, arranger, and producer Brad Shapiro instead of Brown this time, but whoever was responsible, Brown's music continued to deteriorate.
