Womack & Womack: Love Wars (Elektra 60293)

Mitchell Cohen, High Fidelity, May 1984

THE MEN and women that Cecil and Linda Womack portray on Love Wars almost never want the same thing at the same time which makes this one of the most realistic adult pop soul albums to come along in a while. A married couple who have known each other since childhood, the Womacks are candid about the tug of sexuality and the traps it can set. Depicting the contemporary love affair as an intricate series of battles, they circle each other, testing out motives points of vulnerability.
