1983 Womack & Womack – Love Wars

Love Wars is the 1984 debut album by musical duo Womack & Womack. The album, described by Chris Rizik of Soul Tracks as “a critical favorite”, charted at number 34 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. In his review of the album, music critic Robert Christgau praised husband Cecil Womack and wife Linda Womack as “[a]ce singers and songwriters (as opposed to singer-songwriters)”, noting that “their lyrics about loss and conflict are sharper than those about love and happiness”.

Two singles from the album, “Love Wars” and “Baby I’m Scared of You”, were hits in the UK, reaching number 14 and number 72 on the UK Singles Chart, respectively
