They have "THE LOOK " and "the sound" to match for a great album!!

This is a bitterwsweet album since group veterans, Jody Watley and Jeffrey Daniel were in the process of leaving Shalamar due to creative differences with Dick Griffey and Howard Hewitt, but this album has some strength with the production of Leon Sylvers III. My favorite songs are "Dead Giveaway", "Closer", "You Won't Miss Love (Till It's Gone)", and "Over & Over!" The former and the latter were R&B hits for the group! "Dissappearing Act" was electrifying and "Right Here" was very smooth! Like their previous album, The Look is flawless and any New Wave and/or R&B fan should get this whole album. This is also one of the first albums that Leon produced of which he took his new sound to a new galaxy (dropping disco and moving on to harder edge new wave soul). For example, he and his brother Foster Sylvers did a test drive on Janet Jackson's "Come Give Your Love To Me" on her debut album the previous year and it passed! Why not do it for one of the most successful R&B groups of the early 1980's?! They have "the look" and "the sound" to match!

Bringing back memories of the wild 80's

I remember buying this on vinyl back in the day. I can't believe that it is now available for download in iTunes. I had to get it right away! This album brings back memories of clubbing in NYC and MTV when all they played was videos. "Dead Giveaway" had a way cool video to go with the song.
