A pretty awful album.  Braxton leads his group through a plodding set of standards in an uncharacteristically boring fashion.  The horrendous 1980s production values don’t help matters at all.  Braxton must have needed the money or something.  Actually, he definitely needed the money.  Just don’t judge the guy by this pile of crap.
