Consumer Guide Reviews:

Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam With Full Force [Columbia, 1985]
Lisa got to sing "I Wonder If I Take You Home" because she sounded like the kind of amateur who might put words to the tune of yah-yah yah-yah-yah. At album length her musical comedy training comes to the fore. A Rosie & the Originals for our more pretentious time. C+

Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam: Spanish Fly [Columbia, 1987]
Aphrodisiac they ain't--just Hispanic and, supposedly, fly. Hell's Kitchen scullions who've made good in typical one-part-talent-to-ten-parts-application Fame fashion, they're just streetsmart enough to want nothing so much as to escape to the suburbs. Their kids will either carry on the family business or join hardcore bands. C+

Lisa Lisa: LL 77 [Pendulum, 1994] Neither
