5.0 out of 5 stars Maysa Delivers A Classic
ByL. Walshon June 17, 2017
If an artist is going to cover songs from artists like Luther Vandross, Natalie Cole, and Pat Benatar there better be significant talent to back it up, and, in the case of Maysa, she proves that she is more than up to the task on "Love is a Battlefield". Her covers of Cole's "Inseparable" and Vandross's "Because It's Really Love" are wonderful tributes to the originals with her incomparable voice, and her take on "Love is a Battlefield" is remarkable. The song that was originally a hard driving rock anthem in the '80's has been beautifully transformed into a ballad. In the hands of a lesser talent this might have failed, but Maysa pulls it off effortlessly.
A couple of other standout tracks are "Mr. Dream Merchant", a cover of Jerry Butler's 1960's classic, and the album opener, "The Things That We All Do For Love", an underrated track from Nona Gaye.
The production is outstanding and the sound quality is superb.
Maysa deserves accolades for this album, and hopefully it will be recognized as one of the best R&B albums of 2017.

An unbelievable and mesmerizing a music soundtrack collection reflecting back on my life, stretching across three decades. The formula is simple: one concentrated dose of Maysa’s gift delivering each song with her sultry and mellow voice. She reigns over, but holds on to the original quality of the pieces while enhancing them, making them her own. Nice tribute to Natalie Cole "Inseparable" and Luther Vandross's "It's Really Love." I would of never expected to have heard Pat Benatar's “Love is a Battlefield” transformed from a rock jam to a wonderful love ballad. Spoiler alert: a nice surprise to find Ron Isley joining her on “Footsteps in the Dark.” This CD has to be Grammy bound, you owe it to yourself to pick up or download it. I love this entire CD. I toast you, Maysa, incredible work here.

I love this CD! Couldn't wait until it was finally released and it was definitely worth the wait! Maysa's re-makes of these classic songs are just sung beautifully! There are a good mix of songs here and I love each and every one of them. The remake of Luther Vandross' song Because It's Really Love is truly beautiful and what can I say about the title song Love is a Battlefield.... Superb !!! Great job Maysa!

Maysa delivers on this album as she does on every album! You won't be skipping any songs as she takes you on a journey you may have travelled before but through her voice it's like you're hearing it for the first time. She definitely owns each song and makes it her own! A MUST buy!

Maysa, Maysa, Maysa! My girl does it like no one else. Maysa can sing anything and make it sultry, smokey, and bone chilling. This is a solid CD from one of the best kept secrets out there. Keep doing your thing Maysa. Loved the CD.

Excellent CD through and through. The total reinvention of Pat Benatar's Love Is A Battlefield is one of the best remakes I've heard in years!
