CHIC-Tongue In Chic
Chic's latest is far short of past creative
and commercial peaks. Problem may lie with the apparent reluctance of Rodgers
and Edwards to showcase the talents of vocalists Alfa Anderson and Luci
Martin, except on "Hey Fool,"
a catchy, melodic tune that's the best cut on display, and "When You Love Someone," a mellow
ballad. Instrumentation is faultless, of course, but the spark is missing,
even on the first single, "Hangin.'"
The Chic reputation will probably ensure reasonable sales activity, however.
