Biography

"All you sucker DJs who think you're fly/There's got to be reason and we know the reason why/You try to put on airs and act real cool/But you've got to realize that you're acting like fools."

--Cameo, "Word Up"

Cameo tore the roof off pop funk--and the pop hip-hop scene that followed has paid its tributes, from Will Smith's Big Willie Style ... Read more in Amazon's Cameo Store

Cameo's second studio album, ( their first was 1983's Style) on their new Atlanta Artists label( distributed by Polygram records) was their breakthrough release, and heralded a eight year run of major label success. This 1984 release was one of my first forays into the musical genre called funk, and is one that, happily, has stood the test of tome. The big hit of this album was the title track, but I would say that it is not best track on offer. 'Love you anyway' would be the winner for that accolade, and even now, it still gets my feet moving, (which is no easy feat!) I love the mellow mid-tempo, 'Hangin' Down Town', and groove with you.
I wasn't feelin' 'Leve Toi', and the Bob Marley ( which, whilst it is great to see the boys paying tribute to such a great artist, doesn't work as a song, and is out of place on the album) I also like the sentiments expressed in 'Talkin' Out The Side Of Your Neck' but musically, it's no more than OK.This is a good album that lovers of funk will enjoy.

Format: Audio CD
Cameo's 'She's Strange' was one of the most original dance tracks of the early 80's. A slinky, gradually building, funk track it pretty much introduced the world to Larry Blackmon's distinctive vocal style. Cameo had of course been around a long while before this but commercially their successes had been confined to the U.S and U.K Disco charts. This album however is a very patchy affair and one I would mark (if I could on here) as a 5 out of 10. 'Talkin' Out The Side Of Your Neck' was another big stateside hit but it's very different from the title track. Unusually political for a band like Cameo, it is very rock edged and has lots of crunching guitars in it. this said it is a powerful and good record. 'Hangin' Downtown' was the U.K follow up single and is a nice (if unspectacular) ballad, while 'Groove With You' is good gradually building funky soul. The rest of the tracks are pretty dissapointing to be honest. If you don't own 'She's Strange' the album version is the full 7.12 version but otherwise I would probably give this a miss in favour of a 'best of'.

The Original Bad Boys of Black Rock 'n' Roll are Back! 15 July 2003
By Maria Blaske - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
She's Strange is one of Cameo's most essential albums. Released in 1984, it was an interesting mix of musical styles. Cameo experimented with many different styles such as Reggae(Tribute to Bob Marley),Rap(The explosive title cut She's Strange),Rock(on the dynamic New Wave-Inspired track,Talking Out The Side Of Your Neck & Le Ve Toi)and even Jazz(with the smooth nite time grooves of Love You Anyway & Hangin' Downtown,Check out those Jazz Guitar Licks!). Of course, there's always room for a full-out dancefloor funk jam like Groove With You. All in all,Cameo flawlessly blends various musical genres and makes it their own sound without compromising the Funk. Even with all these musical styles,Cameo still makes this a funk album and manages not to get lost in the translation. She's Strange is a Remarkable mid-1980s effort from Cameo. Cameo's Originality & Innovation on this album & others puts to shame the artists in today's Urban music industry. Their brand of High-Tech,Rock-Influenced Funk,starting with 1982's Alligator Woman LP and ending with 1988's Machismo,provided a soundtrack for the Urban Funk Scene of the 1980s and ultimately signified the sound of that era. The highlights on this album include She's Strange with its undeniably funky groove & some sizzling electronic drum kicks and Talkin' Out The Side Of Your Neck for its political undertones & Hard-hitting Rock Riffs. As well as Le Ve Toi cuz the Cameo dudes sing the lyrics entirely in French! And Groove With You,a slick keyboard-driven jam. This album is definately a must have if you wanna get down with the Funk! I would also recommend Cameo's 1985 follow-up,Single Life,that album is slamming! "I've Got Your Image" is a classic groove!

No weak songs on this one 3 May 2000
By John D. Washington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of those albums that puts groups on the map. Cameo blends a good mixture of funky bassline, ripping guitar riffs, and "offbeat" vocals. Blackmon and Singleton have always seemed to make Cameo stronger when dance on the edge.
