Donna Summer: Mistaken Identity (1991)

donna summer mistaken

By Scott Goldfine

Former reigning disco queen Donna Summer lends her pipes to a diverse musical mix on “Mistaken Identity.” Sporting a new blond look, the diva tackles pop, dance, funk, ballads and gospel with varying degrees of success. Whether ethereal, as on the shuffling “When Love Cries,” or gutsy, as on “Let There Be Peace,” Summer has never sounded better.

But she’s bogged down by trite material.
