Melissa Manchester followed her comeback album Hey Ricky and single "You Should Hear How She Talks About You" with this collection of synthesized dance-pop. Released between the 1983 success of the Flashdance soundtrack and the 1984 success of the Footloose soundtrack, the album was rooted in the same sort of quick-step electronic percussion and clouds of icy keyboard textures, with the vocalist a seeming afterthought. It was not music for fans of "Midnite Blue," but unfortunately, it also failed to generate a hit single for teeny boppers, which meant it fell through the cracks commercially, and Arista dropped Manchester after a decade with the label.
