Their best album. B side is magical. I can listen repeatedly again and again.
"The End" reminds me Automat works and Zig Zag

Ohhhhh wow, just discovering this for myself. Luther is firing on all cylinders on "Searching". Picking this up!

Another great record that could benefit a re-issue. Good vinyl copies especially, are now hard to come by.

Check out the last track on this album: "The End". Great cosmic disco track!

Many Thanks to Luther Vandross {Never Too Much} & Jocelyn Shaw, A.K.A. Jocelyn Brown {Somebody Else's Guy}

Great album, but I feel "Miracles" might be a bit stronger. And don't sleep on the albums after that either.
Also--check out all the other Petrus productions: HIGH FASHION, ZINC, BB & Q, etc.

Fantastic album, and I cannot say anything that has already been said about it, HOWEVER, Why didn't Warner Bros. swap out the edited LP version for the FULL 8:21 version from the promo 12"?

Imho only ITALO DISCO connoisseurs are able to hear this influences and the feelings which came out of italy in the early 80ies. Malavasi, Romani and Gianolio did a great job and made DISCO great again! ;) ITALO DISCO ;)

One of the things that hurt me the most when I get older is seeing how I have been gathering all kind of musical tastes and influences, loving music more and more, but being the only one at that. I find it sad that most of the people that listen to this album are in one of two teams: the ones that love disco soul derived from Chic, and the ones that are fascinated by its proto italo leanings. Well, in my world of unicorns and rainbows I think that the best thing about Change is how both electro italo, italo disco and disco funk live together in the same tracks making this a very international affair that sounds everything but dated and never stops being as catchy as a Harry Warren melody. From "A lover's holiday" to "The End", a wonderful collection of songs. Though, yes, they win a lot when Luther Vandross is heard.

A true classic us-italo production, Most critics seems no to mention the great Italian contribution on this recording.
