Melissa Manchester's creative contributions to her own records were on the wane, but here she managed to assert her identity by writing six of the ten tracks - each one a good bit better than the lame ballad and disco fodder that made up the balance. Whenever I Call You Friend," a hit the year before for Stevie Nicks and Kenny Loggins (the song's co-writer), is a far more supple, elegant song in Manchester's capable hands.
