I mean it should be like a Bee Gees album without falsetto voices but a real singer, right? Well it works well, very catchy and smooth, maybe a bit draggy filler or one or two uninteresting ballads in between. […]

Soul Tracks
However, Heartbreaker is arguably the critical high point of Warwick’s second birth. Beautiful production, great songwriting and the kind of performance that made Dionne Warwick a legend, all came together on an album that still sounds terrific 30 years after it initially hit our shores. […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
This is lacking even the basic hooks that the best BeeGees work had. … As usual, if Warwick doesn’t have a good melody to sing, she’s lostand this time out, well, she’s lost on every track. […]
