R&BSoul a doubt, Garden of Love was Rick James' most underrated release. The album went gold and was far from a flop, but Motown wanted double or triple platinum, and anything less was disappointing. And when funk fans reminisce, Garden isn't one of the albums they mention. A departure from the type of hard and rowdy funk that defined Come Get It, Bustin' Out of L Seven, and Fire It Up, Garden boasted only one major hit Big Time and was surprisingly laid-back by James' standards. The album contains more ballads than usual, and Rick uses subtlety to his artist. from the album garden of love. Summer Love.
