"This is one of Cameo's most essential albums-probably one of the best they ever made. It has all the makings of the perfect old school funk album. It's filled to the brim with energetic jams,funky dance grooves,finger-pickin'style guitar,throbbin' bass lines,and of course a strong brass section and synth layers on the top. This album is a nostalgic one, with classic jams such as the groove-intoxicating R&B hit, "I Just Want To Be", the rhythmic "Energy","The Rock", and the slow-jam "Sparkle". Plus, it also has a remake of "Find My Way", which is even more of a disco song than the first one; Since there was this big disco craze in 1979, it made sense for cameo to do this song and it fitted this album fine cuz it was in touch with the time. At one time or another, every funk band experimented with disco.
They don't make good albums like this anymore. I have this on LP and I think this album would be a great addition everybody's funk collection. It's very necessary that you purchase this album today!"
