Consumer Guide Reviews:

French Kiss [Capitol, 1978]
When "rock" gets this creamy, it functions as disco for racists, people who'd rather play soft-core dominance games than dance anyway, and the classy lady flicking her tongue in the general direction of our classy artiste's ear lobe has the right idea: aural chic. 'Tis tuneful, though, and probably helps one get through the ironing as pleasantly as the Doobie Brothers do. C+
