Although The Fabulous Impressions was a solid enough soul record on its own merits, it's not one of the more notable entries in the Impressions ' catalog. At times it seemed that Mayfield was trying to follow in Motown's footsteps, as on "You Always Hurt Me" which isn't far removed from Smokey Robinson workouts like "Tears of a Clown" and "You Ought to Be in Heaven" which has a saxophone that sounds like a dead ringer for Junior Walker.
Mayfield doesn't always take the lead part, which to be honest signifies that it's not going to be one of the stronger tracks. The above comments might lead you to believe this album is worse than it actually is; it's dependable, enjoyable, quality soul, with "Isle of Sirens" recalling earlier efforts like "Gypsy Woman," and "She Don't Love Me" offering a chunkier and tougher approach than their typical heartfelt optimism.
