Released in 1992, Lovebubble
was Book Of Love
's 4th and final album. Only two tracks from this disc made it onto the compilation disc I Touch Roses: The Best of Book of Love
: "Hunny Hunny
" (in remixed form) and "Chatterbox, Pt. 2
." Diving into Lovebubble as a whole, it's easy to see why - these are the two strongest tracks on the disc. By 1992, it seems that the band was running out of ideas. It's a paint by numbers album; sure, it's functional and might even be somewhat appealing at times, but it lacks a passionate, creative spark.
The opening tracks seem to have some sort of oddball 1970s vibe to them, as "Sunday A.M.
" sounds like something Gary Numan
might have done right before going solo (at least until Susan Ottaviano starts singing) while they cover David Bowie
's "Sound and Vision
." Meanwhile, "Hunny Hunny," while not a misspelled cover of "Honey, Honey
" sounds very ABBA
