CD Reviews

Smooth And Funky All At Once
Andre' S Grindle | Bangor,ME. | 08/27/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An utterly underrated mid 80's venture for the Players
"Garduation" stars strong with two high-energy grooves in
"Fast Track" and "Follow Me",countered only by the B-side's
"All Night",making way for the albums closing bluesy rock 'n roll
of "So Glad I Got My R&B",the most orginal and clever tune the
Ohio Players ever came up with.But when you get to "School Girl"
and "Now Is The Time",the rest of the album including those two
fit into the Whitney Housten-style "big ballad" 80's R&B sound
that seemed the drain the soul out of Afro Amerian popular music
in this era and up to today.An excellent outing but also showing
a symtom of the times."
Ohio Players Rule
David C. Tanner | FPO, AP United States | 11/05/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I really didn't expect much from this Album, especially when I found out (after I ordered it) that Sugarfoot isn't on it! I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to it though. It's still good music. (Billy Beck does a good job on the lead vocals. He can even get some of Sugar's snarl). It isn't classic Ohio Players funk but it is a good album for a group who's supposed to have been "past their prime"."
Sweet High School Memories Brought Back Again!
Adrian Perkins | Houston, TX | 05/12/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although the Ohio Players are best known for their smash-hit albums of the 1970s, "Graduation" has great potential! This album will cause anyone to reflect back on their high school years, be them good or bad! Yes, this album is a true collector's item! Tracks like "Follow Me" and "All Night" highlight the uptempo flavor of the album, while tracks like "Now Is The Time" and "Sight For Sore Eyes" provide inspiration and comfort. I took off a star because the album seems to lack that "original" Ohio Player sound. Overall, this 1984 effort by the pioneers of funk is exceptional. It will make you dance, cry, and most of all, it will bring back memories of your high school years. I strongly recommend this album to any lovers of R&B and soul music. You won't be disappointed!"
