CARTER U.S.M / 1992 – The Love Album (1992)

The difficult third release got the duo a number one album but it wasn't as good as the previous one. Typical. It tries to sound more grown up by adding more layers to the musical formula, but it just draws more attention to the synth aspect instead. It has quiet piano moments, an accordion and some occasional strings. The lyrical content is as scathing and passionate as anything they had belted out before. It's still a great album despite its flaws. It even has a kind of ballad, Carter style.
