Review: Wilson Phillips – You’re In Love (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Wilson Phillips – You’re In Love.

This track was released in 1991 as a single.

The track starts off with a high hat and a melody. A guitar joins in on the track. After this, the vocals come in. Back up vocals then come in.

Before the main chorus comes in, the instruments come in more. The vocals come in to carry the track further into the main chorus along with some back up vocals.

The track then goes into the verse. Different vocals take turn taking dominant rolls. After an instrumental, the track goes into the main chorus.

After this, the track goes into another verse, but with a more dominant guitar element. Part of the main chorus then repeats. There is a slight alteration with a more subtle electric guitar making a subtle appearance. After this, the track fades out.

One thing about this track is that it pretty is exactly what it says on the tin. If you want just a plain love track, this is exactly that – a plain love track. For some people, that is certainly a sufficient reason to like the track.

Something I do like about this track is the dynamics of the multiple female vocals. They can smoothly go from being a lead vocal to backup vocals and interchange as needed. That adds a lot of seamlessness to the track because the vocals can change things up so easily.

The subtle rock elements do add a nice hint of energy. It isn’t enough to completely overpower the track, but it is used in a way that adds a nice quality to the track.

A problem I have with this track is that the verse work seems a bit brief for my tastes. As a result, the track puts too much focus on the main chorus and seems to add verses as filler more than as something that adds to the track.

Still, this is a pretty decent track. There are a number of pretty good elements in the track. In some respects, the simplicity actually makes this track approachable. In other respects, the simplicity also makes this track seem to have less depth then expected as far as lyrics are concerned. So, a pretty solid track all around.
