Great Album

Even though I'm 27 (going on 28) years old, I love the 80's and I like the way Klymaxx bringing the 80's alive.

Stick 2002 ,

Just to be clear again

This was their SECOND album on SOLAR

Azone1983 ,

"You can't slow them down!"

This funky sophomore release solidified Klymaxx as the vain and sassy divas of funk. I would only wish that SOLAR's CEO, Dick Griffey had promoted this album more because this album was so hot that it's still burning after almost 30 years with sassy selections, "Wild Girls" and "Heartbreaker" thus putting Never Underestimate the Power of the Woman album to great shame. Those two songs were the very first songs that Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced as well as the very first songs in their long 30 year resume although they were not hit singles. Lakeside-like highlights include the ballads "Convince Me" and "An Offer I Can't Refuse" to balance out their bad girl image while they boogie down with the infectious title track and "Don't Hide Our Love". Jam and Lewis also cooked up the slightly toned down "The Man in My Life" and retain their sassiness with the defiant, "All Turned Out" This album was largely ignored when released in late 1982, and it took the girls 2 more years to make themselves a household name with their massive hit album, Meeting in the Ladies Room. Although the girls handled some of their own instruments (with some help), the production was all handled by either Jam & Lewis or Lakeside (except that Bernadette Cooper co-produced "Heartbreaker"). Although this was Klymaxx's prestardom period, I do consider this their best effort in my opinion (only ahead their next output and commercially their best selling one). I highly recommend Girls Will Be Girls for any 80s R&B fan.
