Lionel Richie's comeback hasn't exactly gone to plan. Both the singles and the album haven't really set the charts alight. The singles, while upbeat, have been easily forgettable, and not a patch on earlier work such as "Dancing On The Ceiling". With "Tender Heart", however, he goes back to what he is famed for; his ballads. And in this case, it should work. A gorgeous song, impeccably sung as ever, this should return Lionel to the upper reaches of the chart.
