The Sun Always Shines With This Album 9 Oct. 2009
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Following a string of albums on Total Experience that followed a somewhat similar musical pattern The Gap Band elected to spend this album working with new production ideas and flavors within their own style. I once heard it said that a lot of people were really unhappy the Wilson's hadn't evolved beyond the party crew mentality and become more well rounded. Well this album actually is focused towards exactly that. Wheras drum machines had been used in a less obvious degree on their previous album Gap Band V: Jammin' on this one it's a lot more obvious in places,as is the digital influence. "Video Junkie","Beep A Freak" and "Don't You Leave Me" all have a mild Minneapolis flavor,with the influence of contemporary hip-hop as well with prominant use of sequencers and such. One thing that hasn't changed is that the Gap Band always have a lot of fun using new musical ideas. The band also did a modern version of their trademark P-Funk apropriation on "Disrespect",adding that strong Southern funk flavor of the Gap's style for what is likely one of the heftier jams of the period. There's actually a very catchy soul/pop song that has little or nothing to do with funk here called "Weak Spot" where Charlie Wilson gives it his all as a vocalist. In between there are interludes with mild Eastern motif called "The Sun Don't Shine Everybody",culminating in a vocal version at the conclusion of the album that reveals itself as one of the Gap Band's most emotionally potent slow numbers. The "naked funk" style of the album and,for the period the refreshing use of horns make it clear the Wilson brothers are nowhere close to giving up their classic funk sound even as the style of the genre was changing,for better or worse. The big question was why everyone outside the R&B community turned their nose up on this album and slept on it commercially. There are handfulls of albums in the funk genre that get this sad fate and it's important to point that out because,as long as these recordings exist in some way,as I've heard it said there'll always be good music for those who listen.
OK, but certainly not the Gap Band's best work 2 Feb. 2010
By Glen Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Unlike some funk bands known for the gritty, sweaty funk workouts they made during the 70s, the Gap Band didn't necessarily stop making quality music in the 80s, but after having heard both Gap Band IV and Gap Band V, Gap Band VI seems to find the venerable funk outfit in a bit of a creative slump. "Weak Spot," my favorite song on the album, is a sweet midtempo tune nicely accented with harmonicas (or harmonica-like synthesizers), and "Don't You Leave Me" is fairly decent, but much of this album concentrates more on overly synthesized production rather than the memorable hooks found on the previous two Gap Band albums. "I Believe" is a soulful, passionate ballad, but it sounds more like it should be from the 60s, not the 80s. The worst song, however, is undoubtedly "I Found My Baby," which is really nothing more than their big hit "Outstanding" with different lyrics, and if you're at all familiar with "Outstanding," the similarity is just impossible to ignore. Overall, not a terrible album, and certainly not something to ignore completely, but not quite the place to go for a healthy dose of all-around Gap goodness, either.
