Classic Freestyle Album review....Lisa Lisa
Review of Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force album.
Reviewed by Ron Wynn for AMG.
Lisa Velez's last name was forgotten after the single "I Wonder If I Take You Home" elevated Lisa Lisa And Cult Jam into the national spotlight. Her voice had the perfect mix of uncertainty, irony and edge, while Full Force's production was state-of-the-art for the time. There was also a fine ballad on the album, "All Cried Out," presenting Lisa Lisa's vulnerable side, and is arguably still her finest performance. Lisa Lisa and company eventually earned a platinum album and were on their way. - Ron Wynn
Review of the Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam album Spanish Fly
Reviewed by Ron Wynn for AMG
Full Force was still hot as they produced a second consecutive platinum LP for Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam. This time, the group scored two number one pop hits with "Head To Toe" and "Lost In Emotion," and even "Someone To Love Me For Me" had its moments. Lisa Lisa was an ingenue one moment and a tough, hardened survivor the next. The album peaked at number seven on the pop charts, but was also the apex of their union. Lisa Lisa was already beginning to show signs of strain, and the bottom would fall out on the next release. - Ron Wynn
