Love's prickly charisma and sharp wit fills "Monie in the Middle" (an insidiously catchy putdown tale of high school romance and one of three tracks produced by FYC's Andy Cox and David Steele) and the autobiographical "Don't Funk wid the Mo."
One of Love's main topics is the mistreatment of women, and quite a few tracks "Pups Lickin' Bone," "It's a Shame (My Sister)," "R U Single," "I Do as I Please" and "Just Don't Give a Damn" are powerful assertions of women's rights and the need for self-respect in a hostile environment.
Untempered by repeated proud testaments to her motherhood, Love's get-out-my-face antagonism and Marl's slo-mo blandness cancel out the lively pop charm and uplifting righteousness of Down to Earth.
