Wendy and Lisa are Prince’s greatest collaborators and with him are responsible for some of his greatest work, whether credited or not. It was always going to be difficult for W&L to step out of Prince’s shadow but I don’t think fame and fortune were necessarily their goal. W&L are musicians at heart and Eroica, their third album, has a more mature feel about it as they seemed to have grown into their sound. It really is a listenable album from the view that there is depth to the music. Whether its the layered guitars on one track, or layered vocals on another or the little guitar licks that hop between the stereo channels there is always something interesting to listen to.
Standout track: Why Wait For Heaven – those guitars!
