Lynsey De Paul: Love Bomb

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, January 1976

LYNSEY DE PAUL'S new Aimed-at-America image seems to be Sex & Sleaze – with class. Visually, as any potential consumer can see by directing an orb or two towards the cover of Love Bomb, she fills the bill admirably. Musically she may give rise to misdirected expectations – one excited reaction around PRM was "Dusty Springfield, only tougher!" But Lynsey is no Dusty – in fact, she doesn't have much of a voice at all.
