All Music Guide Review

The soundtrack of the 1991 Fox/Robert Townsend film about the travails of a fictional '60s soul music vocal group includes the hit ballad "A House Is Not a Home" performed by The Dells, whom Townsend consulted with on the film. Lead singer Marvin Junior, one of the most underrated voices in pop music, poignantly delivers the melancholy lyrics. After 7 had a Top 10 R&B smash with the smooth as silk "Nights Like This." There's plenty of retro touches on the album. "Baby Stop Running Around" has Temptations-ish James Jamerson-inspired bassline. The mid-tempo jam "In the Middle" sounds like The Spinners circa '70s. Patti Labelle intensely sings "We Haven't Finished Yet." Unfortunately, young Tressa Thomas' vibrant version from the film was not included on the CD. Rance Allen gives a sizzling performance on "I Feel Like Going On." The soundtrack makes a great companion to the movie, which is available from Fox Home Video. ~ Ed Hogan, Rovi
