Notes:
(**) From the same year as Union, we have some of the same session musicians, Jimmy Haun and Michael Sherwood, working with Air Supply. The songs are mediocre romantic mush, or worse in the case of the environmentally-friendly mush of the poor title track. The Sherwood/Haun co-writes are marginally better. (HP, 27 May 01)
