"When I was Growing up, I was constantly told " This doesn't concern you, this is BIG people business, or Big people Talk". Cameos "Single Life" CD is Big Peoples music. This album is often overlooked when people discuss Cameos body of work, but once found, it is a treasure chest that brings forth much pleasure. "Attack me with your Love" kicks off proceedings, with its addictive piano hook/chorus, was a hit at its initial time of release. "Single Life" follows which was huge. The True treasures of this CD are to be found in the lesser known tracks." I've got your Image" is a full blown soul outing, with a horns section in full effect (which is missing in today's soul scene.)As well as the quiet storm clasic"Look for Love", my favorite track is "Goodbye". The Horns are to the form in this outing as well, and whilst it might not be an immediate hit, repeated listening will emphasize the quality on display. This Album came after "She's Strange", and would be followed by the album that blew open the door for Cameo............... Word Up!!!"
SINGLE LIFE IS STELLAR

"I have this album on CD format,on a rare German-Manufactured copy of the disc. Once again,Cameo displays musical versatility & quality musicianship. Their playing demonstrates a wide range of styles including Rap,Reggae and Rock. Even though Cameo switches styles throughout this 1985 disc,their One-of-a-Kind Funk Sound dominates the overall feel & vibe of the album. "Attack Me With Your Love" is Loose & Laid-back Funk with a synthesizer-laced groove while "Single Life" is a Ruff & Ready,almost risque Jam about the thrills of 'living the single life'. Though those jams are kickin',the absolute highlight of the album can be found in "I've Got Your Image",a beautifully-arranged uptempo number that is defined by its instantly infectious keyboard melody. Another standout track is the Rap inflected "Urban Warrior" as well as the mellow & moody "A GoodBye",with its distinctly Rock-Flavored Sound. All and all,this album satisfies,grooves & soothes the listener at the same time. Single Life can definately be filed under "Cameo's Greatest" list."
