Review: Patty Smyth and Don Henley – Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough (Rock)

This review covers the soft rock track Patty Smyth and Don Henley – Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough.

This track was released in 1992 as part of a single.

The track starts with some guitar and string elements. The vocals then come in to take the track into the first verse. A bass guitar joins the track.

From there, the vocals then take the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

At this point, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The secondary male vocals then take over for a bit. Both vocals then are layered over top of each other before the female vocals take over again.

Both vocals then take the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with the female vocals then taking over. Another instrumental section then hits.

The track then breaks down and both vocals repeat the main chorus again. The guitar makes an appearance again. After that, there is a brief instrumental section before the track ends.

One thing this track has going for it is the flow. It builds up and pulls back when it needs to. There is even a gradual increase in prominence by the time the track gets to the end as well which is always a bonus.

The male female vocal combinations does work in this tracks favour. The initial appearance of the male vocals is a bit sudden given that it appears part way through the verse. Still, there are some good dynamics going on here with that.

Overall, this is a pretty decent track. The male female vocal combination does work pretty well even if the introduction of the male vocals is a bit jarring. It has some pretty good flow going for it as well. So, a fairly well done track in the end.

Score
7.5/10
