Great to see this album out on CD with remixes and bonus tracks, sounding better than ever and an essential purchase for anyone who enjoyed Five Star's music. But on its release in 1988, Five Star's new harder, funkier sound was a shock for some fans (like me).

Lead singer Denise had dyed her hair blond and had extensions fitted (well that or she had the fastest growing hair in pop) and the band's appearance on Wogan - performing first single Another Weekend, with a dance routine full of head tosses, fist flicks and knee slides; I didn't know where to start - was our first glimpse of their brand new look and sound. Watching aged 14, I think I was slightly worried for their future.

Another Weekend was the band's last UK top 20 hit (reaching no.18), followed by the much stronger and truly brilliant second single Rock My World (no.28) followed by the Denise Pearson-written There's a Brand New World (like Stay Out of My Life part 2) which only reached 61, despite being a catchy rock/pop throw-back in terms of the band's sound. Two years earlier that would have made the top twenty but their core audience of fans appeared to be dwindling. A sense of panic felt in evidence come the fourth and final single, dreamy ballad Let Me Be Yours. Again, it was written by Denise, and had a bit of a PR blitz behind it not seen for a while: numerous tv performances, a return to their sparkly jumpsuits, and a behind the scenes 'making of' feature on Going Live. The single fared better, reaching number 51, but it seemed Five Star's big hits were over.

At the close of 1987 dance music and the sound of Stock/Aitken/Waterman were dominating the charts. With a whole host of new groups emerging on the pop landscape it looked like Five Star's reign of success was about to come to an end as each single released was met with diminishing returns. A new sound and image was needed to re-invigorate the group and to win over new fans.

Five Star collaborated with Leon Sylvers III on this release and he furnished the group with a harder edged funk sound which is displayed on the hits "Another Weekend" & "Rock My World". As the group were winning favorable reviews from the critics it was the music buying public that was shocked and possibly alienated from the dramatic image displayed in their videos and cover art. The group struggled to gain the success of the previous three platinum albums and by the third single, the brilliant Deniece Pearson penned "There's A Brand New World" their top 40 chart run was over. It's a shame as this album is one of their best. The should've been single "Godsend" is a highlight and the Doris Pearson composition "Someone's in Love" shows great variety. It's an album with no filler that can be listened to from start to finish.

This re-mastered album includes the original ten track album and remixes of the five singles released. It also includes one of their best singles "With Every Heartbeat" and "Something About My Baby" which were both featured on the 1989 album "Greatest Hits". The packaging and liner notes are great and it is a must for every Five Star fan.

Although nowhere near as consistent or commercially successful as Luxury of Life or Silk and Steel, this fourth album from the Pearsons saw them experiment with style, format and image. Losing fans along the way was a risk worth taking and it's a pity they couldn't sustain the effort for long. Within months they had reverted back to the slickness of 1987, almost panic like.

The strongest songs on the album include the funky harder edged Another Weekend which, incidentally hasn't dated, Rock My World and Godsend. The fourth single released - Let me be yours - was a questionable choice for a single (it's album filler stuff) as was Brand New World (which suffered from un originality). Denice, the writer, should have sold this to another band as it just doesn't suit five star.

Their 'look' was very much borrowed from Michael Jackson in the BAD era, which did nothing for their credibility. A more gentler introduction to the style may have served them better. Still there was more fun and slightly more point to this album than predecessor Between the Lines.
