Swept Away songs Product Information
Swept Away went gold on the strength of "Missing You" and the Julio Iglesias duet "All of You," but it nevertheless was one of her best efforts, thanks to restrained production and a solid set of songs highlighted by "Touch By Touch," "Rescue Me," "Swept Away" and "Forever Young." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine Japanese-only pressing of this solo album from the original, and still the best, Soul diva, originally released in 1984. ...See Full Description

||THE DIVA OF THEM ALL DOES IT AGAIN|
SWEPT AWAY BY DIANA ROSS IS SUPREME. MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU ONCE AGAIN MISS ROSS. YOU AND YOUR SWEPT AWAY ALBUM ARE SECOND TO NONE. STEFANO

||Essential for fans|
Not one of Diana's best albums but nevertheless, it has some classics, from the mournful Missing You for the then recently departed Marvin Gaye, to the eccentric Nobody Makes Me Crazy Like You Do, and Telephone. All of You is the schmaltz which feels shoe-horned onto this unusual album. The cover photo says it all. Diana was trying to move forward and experiment, but wasn't quite brave or avante-garde enough. Still. I love it for the traditional cover of Rescue Me, which is sung with such open emotion and honesty. For completists or interested collectors.

|Swept Away is a SMASH!|
Diana's 1984 Swept Away Album is a great classic effort. The album helped fans forget about her '83 album "Ross" which took on a new production team and most of the songs were too soft r&b, except for the two hits Pieces of Ice and Up front. Swept Away is loaded with hits. The best two songs on the album are Missing You and the title track. Missing You is a tight pop/r&b ballad that was a tribute to Marvin Gaye, written by Lionel Richie. It hit #10 on the pop charts and #1 on the R&B Charts. The title track-Swept Away is a great pop/rock song that has Diana at her best. It's driven by a great chrous and backing vocals. It hit #19 Pop, #3 R&B and #1 Dance. The song All of You is a dynamic duet with Julio Iglesias that will blow you away. It hit #19 pop and #4 AC. Telephone is a very sultry r&b tune that is fun to listen to. It hit #13 r&b. The rest of the album is good as well. I think out of all of her RCA albums this ranks #2 tied with Eaten Alive, but just behind Red Hot Rhythm and Blues.
