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)
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.Read more ›
