Entertainment Reviews:

Vibe - 10/97, p.162
"...a retro nostalgic throwback to their heyday in the 1970s and '80s....IN THE NAME OF LOVE is like revisiting a fresh yet familiar face, one that soothes, satisfies, and makes you smile from the inside out..."

The 1997 version of EWF launches its album with a jarring, unexpected drum thwack in the first bar of the first song, suggesting that the dynamics of modern hip-hop and even modern rock have not passed by this funk institution. The band quickly drops back into its tried-and-true love-song formation, though, giving most of the album over to creamy-voiced Philip Bailey who urges other men to keep their love in their lives, and tries to convince a woman that he's the true love in hers. There are occasional new-school funk beats, and old-school blasts aplenty from the EWF horns, but the album belongs to Bailey. His showcase ballad "Cruising," which if you close your eyes can evoke memories of the great "Reasons," should finally erase all memories of Phil Collins from EWF fans' minds.
