Affection (Bonus Tracks)

Affection by Lisa Stansfield
Released: Jan 1989
Label: Arista
This international hit from acid house's brief explosion in pop music features a classic in "All Around the World," where Lisa Stansfield memorably conveys broken-hearted tears with a memorably smoky, soul-inflected voice. She too often plays second fiddle on Affection's house-lite arrangements, and there are moments when she frustratingly disappears within a repetitive beat and unremarkable songwriting. But when she takes control of a truly fantastic song, like "This Is the Right Time," "Live Together" and "You Can't Deny It," it makes the wait worthwhile.
