Classic freestyle review- Sweet Sensation
Take It While It's Hot
Review by Ron Wynn
Sweet Sensation made a quick impact in the late '80s with this album. They were a talented female trio and also looked great, which ensured a run of photo sessions and publicity generated around their appearance. But the cuts "Sincerely Yours", "Never Let You Go", and "Hooked On You" suggested that people listen to them as well.
Review by Alex Henderson
Comparable to the Cover Girls and Expose, Sweet Sensation was one of the most popular female groups in Latin freestyle, a high-tech style of dance music/disco incorporating elements of Latin music (namely salsa and merengue) and hip-hop. Freestyle has seen its share of faceless assembly-line recordings, but at its best, it can be quite addictive. Sweet Sensation's three members don't have great voices by any means, but the CD does have its moments. "One Good Man" and a cover of the Supremes' "Love Child" show how catchy SS can be when they find the right groove.
I'm not where I need to be, but at least I'm not where I used to be!
