5.0 out of 5 stars Koooooooooooooooool Album :-) 12 Feb 2010
By Quinny
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is worth buying just for the track 'Bad Woman' .. Love that song :-) To be honest there isn't a bad track on the Album. I had this on Cassette many years ago and it's damn near worn out now, so I think it's time to replace it with a cd version, just as long as some idiot hasn't Remastered it .. I hate Remastered albums.
Most people only know Kool And The Gang for the Singles they released, but this album is a great introduction to the quality album tracks too. Buy It you will not be disappointed I promise you :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Approach 14 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is an album littered with good songs, from the funky opening of the title track to the highly danceable Fresh and Misled. Cherish is a beautiful heartfelt ballad.
The first four songs set the standard which the remaining three songs slightly fail to live up to - but it's an essential album if you're a fan of 80s funk. There are moments on this album where Kool and the Gang reach a pinnacle - i.e. Fresh and Misled!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin It 28 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
No doubt at least partly inspired by Michael Jackson, Kool and the Gang emerge from the post Eumir Deodato era with a harder, tighter and puncher sound that is a clear move into the 1980's electronica and rock guitar. This had 3 US top ten hits, which they had never had before: Fresh, Misled and Cherish. The best tracks are on the old Side A, especially Emergency and Misled. It perhaps falls off a bit towards the end of the album, 'You are the One' feels a bit disjoined to me.

It will be interesting to see what BBR have done with the Kool and the Gang remastering releases, hopefully this will be one of them eventually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past!!! 12 Dec 2012

Sounds better today on better systems that are now out. You don't find much Kool & the gang on todays media so it was real good to find this original album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous... 15 April 2000
By Bete Noire - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Very few groups achieved the level of elegance,taste,and power that these legends exhibited on their 1985 record.There is a sense of freshness and sheer beauty in the voice of J.T.Taylor,weonderfully showcased by by the funky and,sometimes,jazzy orchestrations.Every track on this album means business,setting a standard for the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Dance Music And More 2 Aug 2000
By G. J Wiener - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This CD can satisfy hip-hoppers, disco bunnies, soul freaks, and even some easy listening fans and rock n rollers like myself. These seven songs have a driving beat, funky rhythms, some good lyrics, and loads of energy. Its just so Fresh man. My only issue is that there are just seven tracks here. Why couldn't the guys add on another track or two. Allright the last song goes on a little too long but if you are dancing up a storm are you really going to notice? Don't be Misled, pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldschool4ever 18 Feb 2006
By Music - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is by far one of the best Kool and the Gang albums. It includes four Top 20 hits(Fresh, Misled, Cherish,and Emergency)that will always be remembered. JT Taylor was truly the voice of the band that was able to take it to the next step. "Fresh" is one of those upbeat jams that you will get you hooked from the very beginning. "Cherish" and "Bad Woman" are timeless slow jams and "Misled" is a catchy Rock/RnB dance groove. I highly recommend this album to all the fans of the best music era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voice of en era 8 Sep 2012
By Clarice - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wanted to buy the album because of Cherish song. I saw it on YouTube as well, but little did I know that Emergency album include not only this hit. Their style also is not changign, and I like it with artists, because I feel if I like them, I wish to hear them singing the same style, again. Kool and the Gang had many albums, and each one of them had hits, so we all know about them. 'Emergency' , with only 7 songs, is not tiresome. I think they've produced most hits in the 80's. I know this album is the best of them i've heard, simply because it has just 7 songs. and it makes me want to buy another of theri albums. They've captured me and they'll capture you.
A must buy!
