I had a little bit of a "funk" (compared to most of the stuff they did the decade before, I'm not even sure if this can constitue as a legit funk album) phase back a year or so ago, and this is one of the cds I picked up during that time. Twas a good call, a good call indeed. Let me just run down the track listing let ya know what I think of the tracks that I remember well enough:
1) "Steppin' Out": GREAT song. One of the best of the fairly hefty lot of KATG songs I've heard. The vocals are just amazing on this one. 4/5
2) "Good Time Tonight": This was an evil ploy to suck off the success of "Celebration" by making the EXACT SAME SONG. What a load .... I hope they're ashamed of themselves for doing this song. 1/5
3) "Take my Heart": A pretty alright song. Grows on you after a while. The positive simple romanticism of it is just cool. 3/5
5) "Get Down On It": Right up there with "Celebration" as the best KATG have to offer. 5/5
8) "No Show": More ... Aside from "Cherish" (which isn't on this one), I really don't think KATG can do a ballad right. 1/5
I honestly can't remember the rest, but I already mentioned the two worst tracks on the album, so you won't be disappointed. The standout tracks overshadow the bad and make this a good album.
You might want to get the second KATG best-of album though, because all the good stuff is on there too (seriously, they have nearly half this album on there - it's sick).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Time's Gettin' DOWN!!! May 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
These tunes all have that great 'Celebration' grooves and
singalong tunes-topped off by that silky JT Taylor singing who
really shows off his thing on "Take My Heart" and the classic
"Get Down On It" with great,tuneful jams like "Good Time Tonight","Be My Lady" and the synth-spiked "Stand Up And Sing"
thrown in between with "Pass It On" and the catchy "No Show" are
superb ballads.So no filler here but WAIT-there's a bonus cut-
the percussive "Stop!",a jazzy instrumental that shows that
K&TG have never forgotton how to funk.Welcome to something very
special indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great album! May 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
actually i have this album on lp(without Stop!)but i thought i couldn't get enough,and i had decided to purchase this masterpiece.More importantly i was very curious to hear Stop! at least, and when i listened this superb track first time, i had realized it's as funky as their previous instrumental songs(this is just my opinion:))accordingly i recommend this album for everyone who likes RnB and funk music and besides i also recommend their 82' album "As One" and 83 album"In The Heart" (They are not currently available which is a massive shame!)Why are you waitin for?Let you discover their funky world! J.T. AND KOOL.THEY ARE THE ONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars This really is Something Special! May 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wow! I got my copy just in time before this went out of print. Every song on this album is outstanding. As for the reviewer whom said the guys cannot do ballads I completely disagree. No Show is the best ballad the band ever made.
Steppin Out is one of the best disco/funk songs of all time. There is not one bad song on this collection. If you can get your hands on it at a decent price please do yourself a favor and pick it up. Outstanding!
