3.0 out of 5 stars Expose wannabes from the late 80's Jan. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sweet Sensation was clearly an attempt to make a teen, second-rate Expose down to the keyboard synthesizers, backbeat, and even the lead vocals in "Never Let You Go" mimic those heard in "Point Of No Return" or "Come Go With Me." Oh yes, and there is even a song here called "Let Me Be The One," which was a song on Expose's debut album. Then there's the cover, which clearly shows two whites and a Latina, close to the ethnic lineup of Expose.
"Never Let You Go", clocking in at a little over six minutes, is two minutes overlong, using that excess time for filler noises.
In contrast, "Sincerely Yours" which was the single from the album to make the Billboard charts and it isn't that bad, as it starts with a Spanish guitar before yielding to the Expose-type keyboards. Upon hearing the melody of the opening line, "Dear I write you this letter. to show you how our love means to me," I instantly thought, "AHA! The Supreme's 'You Keep Me Hangin' On." They crib that melody all right. Still, there's a slight Latin flavour in the song that pardons its obvious derivative roots.
"Love Games" incorporates a few video game sounds, a few old school rap scratches, and is about a louse who plays around. The snide spoken line "If you wanna go play games. Why don't you go and ask your daddy for a quarter" seems well deserved. Game over, bucko!
"Let Me Be The One" is a filler ballad that mimics the Expose song plus tries to mirror another one--"Seasons Change". "Heartbreak" contains the usual flurry of synth effects, like glass smashing and staccato vocal dubbing.
The title track begins with "It's time to jam." followed by shrill tinny horns. This is kind of an upbeat mimic of Expose's mid-paced "Let Me Be The One" and has echoes of Miami Sound Machine's early material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cream of the Freestyle Crop! Sept. 17 2002
Format:Audio CD
Growing up in a NJ suburb about 30 miles from NYC, I actually thought that Freestyle music was a lot more popular than it really was. It was only until I started talking to people from other areas of the country that I realized artists like Sweet Sensation, Coro, TKA, CoverGirls and Company B did not receive the type of airplay that they did in NYC. Well, this makes me very glad that I grew up where I did - because I got exposed to some great jams such as the ones on this little freestyle masterpiece! Five of the eight tracks were released as singles and were filling the airwaves of NYC (and Miami) and dancefloors across the nation with slamming energy.
"Victim Of Love" was the first single released, but included here is a re-recorded version which is superior to the original (which can be found on one of the "Freestyle's Greatest Beats" compilations). The second single, "Hooked On You" was actually released twice, this version is the one that was released the second time around. "Take It While It's Hot" is my favorite track on the album and is jam-packed with latin freestyle energy - try not to dance and sing along! The fourth single "Never Let You Go" is fiercly remixed with cool beats and vocal treats. "Sincerely Yours" is more radio-friendly and received the most airplay out of all the singles.
The great thing about this album is that the songs are longer than 3-minute radio versions but shorter than 8-minute remixes. Most fall between 5-6 minutes, so they include all those juicy beats in the middle of the song that really get you groovin' but don't go on forever. Definately a must-have for any freestyle music collection!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dance until you can't dance no more Nov. 10 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sweet Sensations' "Take It while It's Hot" Is a very good dance album. It's a little hard not to move to the beats of "Never Let You Go", or getting up and jamming with the title track. Vocally, these three girls are not something to write home about and it's not the most compelling of all music that you'll ever hear. But it is a light hearted, feel good album that you can sit at home and move to (or clean to). I saw them in concert, and I will say , they do produce alot of energy on stage, as does thier music. You will find yourself singing," I'm hooked on you." You'll get hooked on this Cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! March 8 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sweet sensation is the type of Cd for all you latin-soul sisters such as myself. It is rhythm and upbeat-good music to sing, dance and work up a real sweat to-also good to use while cleaning house! Best of all it reminds me of my 7th grade crush this nice kid named Chris Incollingo-he was a cute- Ladies buy it it is all that and a bag of chips! Sweet Sensation,Cover Girls, expose,,Corina, Laura Enea, Freestyle and latin is the thing it will never go out of style! Well, at least for me it wont!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved them? Where did they go? Dec 31 2001
Format:Audio CD
Okay, true I was 12/13 when this was out, but I still loved it. Especially "Victim Of Love" and "Hooked on You". Their harmony was tight and the beats were danceable. They were sexy, sweet, had talent and did not sound artificial or the product of "studio magic." These girls were talented. I'm sorry that I did not hear anything else from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's Flashback. Jan. 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
This was released shortly after the early 80's new wave craze.
Hooked on You was bumpin at the Warehouse in Portland circa 1986.
This album reminds me of the days when I sported Esprit, Generra paisly shirt, Guess jeans with the multicolored pockets, Troop Jackets, and Calvin Klein Obsession perfume. Damn, those were some fun times.
