Picks and Pans Review: Money, Madness and Music

Sheena Easton

It may turn out that there is no mega-commercial hit on this album to compare with Easton's Morning Train (Nine to Five) or For Your Eyes Only. But it includes some admirably literate songs, such as Janis Ian's In the Winter, Sue Quinn's Weekend in Paris, Steve Kipner and John Lewis Parker's There When I Needed You, and I Wouldn't Beg for Water by Michael Leeson and Peter Vale. Easton also shows some welcome modulation from the sometimes piercing neo-Streisand style she has emphasized in previous albums. Though her more energetic self is still apparent, it's nice to hear her wrap herself around lan's quietly sorrowful lyrics and curl up in a different musical corner.
