The Female " THRILLER " !
gassy goon | 03/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can you say about " BREAKOUT " except it is a classic! It has hit after hit on it - JUMP, AUTOMATIC, NEUTRON DANCE, I'M SO EXCITED, I NEED YOU, BABY COME AND GET IT - and stands the test of time. It's now 25 years ago that it was first released & it's still sounds fantastic. ANITA, RUTH & JUNE just gave it their all , as usual. You could call it the female " THRILLER " . You can hear the influences of soul, dance, rock, electronica , and new wave all over these amazing songs. A classic that deserves more recognition and an expanded reissue today. It's the Pointer Sisters at their peak here."
Sister Act

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Few artists have demonstrated the amount of versatility in their music career like the Pointer Sisters. After ten years of hits, misses, and everything in between, their success reached new heights in 1984. Break Out spawned four Top 10 hits, earned the sisters two of their three Grammy awards, was certified triple platinum, and turned the trio into queens of dance music. Listening to this album today sounds dated with the drum programming and synthesizers, and also as "Automatic" brings back the breakdancing trend, but also won a Grammy for Best Vocal Arrangement. The frenetic "Neutron Dance," still brings back the gospel in their voices, and the album-length version of "I'm So Excited," has the sisters concluding with the perfect, unmatched harmonies they've always had from day one. The slow and soulful "I Need You," shows the sisters trading leads in between pairing their voices, and the harmonies still flourish on "Jump", a Grammy winner for Best Pop Vocal and surrounded by the late June Pointer's energetic lead. And in an era where artists like Prince, Tina Turner, and Bruce Springsteen(the man who wrote the Pointers' 1978 hit "Fire")were becoming major sellers, while emerging acts like Wang Chung, the Thompson Twins, Cyndi Lauper, and many others were having hits seemingly overnight, the Pointer Sisters cemented a place for themselves in the middle of the decade. If you can't think of this album as a classic, then just consider it your occasional guilty pleasure."
Could easily substitute for a greatest hits collection

"Undoubtedly the greatest Pointer Sisters album ever, 6 of the 10 songs on it would eventually end up on a PS Greatest Hits album. Contains the mega-classics "Jump (For My Love)" and "Automatic", as well as the better-known extended mix of "I'm So Excited" and "Neutron Dance", "I Need You" and Baby Come And Get It"."
