Sweet Sensation's three members don't have great voices by any means, and most of the songs on Love Child are forgettable and unbearably cliche-ridden. But the CD does have its moments. One Good Man" and a cover of the Supremes' "Love Child" show how catchy SS can be when they find the right groove. Unfortunately, they don't find it nearly often enough on this generally disappointing album.

Sweet Sensation's version went to on Billboard's dance chart and on Billboard's pop chart. However, it was the album's second single that gave the.
