Laura Branigan: Branigan 2 (Atlantic); Ellen Foley: Another Breath (Cleveland International)
Laura Fissinger, Creem, July 1983
LET'S NOT mince words, eh? Laura Branigan is a damn lousy excuse for a singing star and Ellen Foley is only a pretty good excuse for a singing star. I mean, what's wrong with "female vocalists" these days? How come I got me two of the supposed-to-be-hot ones here and still feel the urge to look for ways to squander 377 words because it only takes three to say "not good enough?"
