We gave it a D+

This must be Madonna’s fault. A pretty disco diva shakes up the New York club scene with her 1990 single ”Lovin’ You Like Crazy,” then jumps to the pop chart this year with a hit single, ”Temptation” — and suddenly, without the least pretense to musical ability, can look forward to a great career. Decent dance-pop provided a base for the multifaceted Madonna to become everything but a great singer; Corina’s debut album proves nothing except that down deep she’s shallow. Her mediocre vocals are unashamedly mixed for crystal-clear delivery of her lousy diction. ”Temptation” does sport a saucy chorus, but for all the disco tricks driving the beat, Corina doesn’t budge. She sounds like she’s buffing her nails, waiting for that starship to come in. D+
