  • To realize how thoroughly disco died in the early '80s, it's instructive to note that Donna Summer's hit single "She Works Hard for the Money" was trumpeted as an unexpected and triumphant comeback. However, it became a hit in the summer of 1983, barely two years after her last hit, "The Wanderer." Still, the change in sound is remarkable; the nine songs on this album are definitely post-disco '80s pop.
  • Producer Michael Omartian's bright synth sounds are a far cry from the krautrock-inspired man-machine rhythms of early Summer hits like "I Feel Love," and the songs--other than the overt Christian themes the newly born-again Summer was adding to her music--aren't that far removed from what Madonna was doing on her debut the same year. The follow-up single "Unconditional Love"--featuring then-current one hit wonders Musical Youth--and the lovely ballads "Love Has a Mind of Its Own" and "I Do Believe I Fell in Love," are up to the standards of the feminist anthem title track.
