Melissa Manchester's first album of new material in a decade was filled with big, dramatic ballads and widescreen production values. That was closer to what seemed a comfortable style for the singer than the dance-pop she had affected in the mid-1980s, but still did not return her to the creative promise she had shown in the mid-1970s.
