Simply an outstanding reflection of the 80's Dance sound
on 21 November 2001
I was already a Change fan having purchased a couple of albums in their hayday of the early to mid eighties, but even I was suprised just how good many of the tracks sound today. Change may not be an artist all are familier with, most will be pleasantly surprised to unearth a classic and I mean CLASSIC from the past, of which there are at least 5 on this album, "Change of Heart" and "Searching" to name but two. Although in my opinion the quality dips in the middle of the cd the tracks either end will bring memories flooding back. Obvious comparisons are to be made with Chic but the tracks on this album have a harder edge with the same infectious groove. The tracks do evolve through the 80's from the early disco bias, with help from Luther Vandross through the Funk era and on to the mid eighties soul sound. I thought the later tracks, represented here by the brilliant "Lets go Together" were as good as their early work, proving Change to be one of the greatest acts of this genre of all time.
This is as good as funk gets, I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
