Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam: Spanish Fly (CBS)

Chris Roberts, Melody Maker, 16 May 1987

NO ORCHIDS here. Already sounding like the year before last's thing. Full Force's puppets can't manage any swirls or blooms to match their one Shannonesque hit. There's an inoffensive aroma coming off the machinery, but it can't flare its lips and ripple up a whistle. Where Jam and Lewis can make a 'Nasty' feisty, the unfeeling Force can only let 'Head To Toe' slump.
