5.0 out of 5 stars The Sisters' Best March 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
I remember this title as my very first Cassette Tape and I played it out! I've had this ablum thorughout the years in different formats Tape, Record and CD. never had it on 8-track though ha ha. But I do love this album. It has been the soundtrack of my "young days" and will cherish it forever.
I'd have to say that Ruth is my favorite sister because I could sing along with her low voice. My two favorite songs on this album have to be. "Neutron Dance" and "Dance Electric" i think they were the start of my now dance obsession. So anyone who loves to dance or just chill pick up this one it is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure 80's fun Jan. 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Pointer Sisters were a group of catchy hooks, great vocal arrangements and talented writing. This album is the epitome of the 80's dance music. I am sure that at the time music clubs everywhere were blaring such songs as Neutron Dance, Jump For My Love, or I'm So Excited. Every song on Break Out is a song of its own. There is no way to be bemused into thinking you are hearing track number 3 when you are listening to track number 7 for every song is different. There are some with deep range vocals, some with flash in the pan synthesizers, and others with beats that make you want to swing into a grove.
This album is of particular interest to me because I was given it when I was only 5 years old. It was my first tape/album. The lyrics on the album became my mantra. I couldn't resist saying "I'm so excited and I just can't hide it" or "I'm just burning doing the neurton dance". SO, of course I just recently purchased this in hopes of evoking memories of my childhood in the 80's. It was a great trip down memory lane.
I suggest that if you are like me and miss some great 80's beats (and synthesizers) then purchase this great album. Every song is a classic and will make you get up on the dance floor (or kitchen floor provided you have one, great disc to listen to if you want to rev up your dish washing! LOL)

5.0 out of 5 stars How 'bout some soul? June 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
In this age of cheap, tacky, mass-produced pop music, it's so refreshing to get back to the heart and soul that is the Pointer Sisters' "Break Out" CD. Every song is a winner; although those '80s synthesizers are getting to sound kind of dated, the core of the music-- the gutsy talent of the Pointer Sisters themselves-- remains unblemished by time. These three women just sing about life in all its joys and sorrows--the thrill of new love, the grind of work, the wistfulness and pain of relationships gone wrong-- and make it rock with the kind of soul music doesn't have anymore. The simple truth is, I bought this twenty-year-old CD because the music has stood the test of time. It's not going away, and we're better for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 80's Pop/R&B CD Nov. 20 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Break Out" is mostly a fast-tempoed album, with some great hits like "Jump (For My Love)", "I'm So Excited", and "Baby Come and Get It". All three songs are enjoyable and addictive, as well as two of my other favorites: "Automatic" (great husky female vocals on this one) and "Dance Electric". I like the majority of songs on here, which is rare for me; I generally only like about half the songs (if that many) on most of the CDs I own, so "Break Out" is quite a gem. I'd certainly recommend it to listeners who like 80's pop/r&b music and especially to fans of this sororal trio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still burnin' Oct. 17 2001
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to blockbuster hit albums of the 80's, you'd be hard pressed to find one as consistantly listenable as this. This is the Pointer Sisters at there commercial peak and they truly shine on every cut which more often than not are Hit Singles. I NEED YOU (R&B #13, POP #48), AUTOMATIC (R&B #2, POP #5), JUMP (FOR MY LOVE) (R&B #3, POP #3), I'M SO EXCITED, (POP #9), NEUTRON DANCE (POP # 6, R&B # 13) and BABY COME AND GET IT (R&B #24, POP #44). All here and all sounding as good today as they did then. All of the Pointers' 80s albums were pretty great but this one will be there most memorable for most and if you don't have it on CD yet then get it now. It's that simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Second Favorite Pointers' Album Sept. 6 2010
By Kasey G TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
By the early '80s, the Pointer Sisters had become the closest thing to the Supremes of that decade, having huge hits with "Fire", "He's So Shy" and "Slow Hand".

In late 1983, they released the "Breakout" album, which gave them four top-ten hits during the next year-and-a-half.

It's easy to take for granted the first track "Jump (For My Love)" since it has been used in commercials and was played endlessly on MTV back in the day, but the truth it's still an upbeat, exhilirating song that is impossible not to like. It peaked at #3 in the summer of 1984.

The slightly slower "Automatic" was the first hit single from the album, reaching #5 on Billboard in early 1984.

A new and slightly different mix of the 1982 hit "I'm So Excited" appears next on the album. Like "Jump", this one has been a little overexposed and easy to take for granted, but still undeniably infectious.

"I Need You" was actually the very first single released from this album and was a minor R&B hit. It's one of the more low-key efforts, and the type of song that usually ends up on easy-listening muzak stations in department stores or offices. It's ok but doesn't stand out.

"Neutron Dance" of course, was a HUGE hit, (just missed the #1 spot here in Canada) helped along by its inclusion in the "Beverly Hills Cop" movie in 1985. The drum machines go wild on this one.

The familiar hits end with "Neutron" but that's not to say the album loses steam. In fact, "Dance Electric" is a fantastic futuristic-sounding cut that has the sisters soaring during the chorus. It's one of my favorite tracks of the LP.
