Category Archives: BELL & MARTIN
…Some of these ten cuts, like the tinseltown glitz of “Walking On Air” sound a tad dated, though the disco jive of “Who’s Kiddin’ Who”, where Madeline’s crystal-sharp vocals fly over the finger-popping twang, proves irresistible. The silkier approach to the orchestra-wrapped title track, a duet with Martin, works fine; still, surprisingly, the urban grit in Bell’s voice comes forth on the lush ballad “East Side, West Side”.
…the emotional peak is reached in AMMO’s own perennial, “Can’t Smile Without You”, sung here in fragile fashion by Josie Martin and her dad David. A pleasant public addition to the master’s impressive catalogue. ***
