type:

In Season
performer:
Martha Wash
genre:
POP, Reissues

We gave it a B+

A premier dance diva, Wash has pipes the size of Cincinnati and then some. On this best-of (which includes three new cuts), The Collection, you’ll recognize her soaring vocals on club anthems from C+C Music Factory and Black Box; she also proves majestic on blues-soaked ballads like “Taking Away Your Space.” Wash even updates her Weather Girls gay-bar mainstay “It’s Raining Men” with house beats and RuPaul, but it’s her ebullient charisma that makes the clouds part.
