Avis sur l’album

Cameo was one of the leading groups proffering funk and R&B, with hits like 1980s "Shake Your Pants" and 1985's "Single Life." But as their most successful single, "Word Up," put a little too much pop in the mix, their main audience grew weary of them. So much so the group's great 1990 single, "I Want It Now," didn't get airplay and barely made a dent on the charts. Emotional Violence, their first effort for Reprise, has the group as a trio featuring Larry Blackmon, Charlie Singleton, and Tomi Jenkins. They all get lead vocals here. Despite the best intentions, Emotional Violence is business as usual, but without the innovative edge. But fans may be surprised to find out some good work is here. The hard-edged title track has producer Blackmon deftly mixing the group's classic sound with hip-hop flourishes. "Raw But Tasty" is one of their playful, funky tracks and has a killer hook and great guitar solos from Singleton. The song also has a minute-long rap segue that diminishes its appeal. "Another Love" is reminiscent of their 1987 hit, "Don't Be Lonely," but without the charm. Surprisingly despite all of the rhythmic adventures, Emotional Violence most assured track is a ballad. "Love Yourself" has their customary, off centered melodic sense and has them getting their messages across without being pedantic. The last track, the horn laden, "That Kind of Guy," with its Earth Wind and Fire sanguinity, seems an odd way to close an album steeped in ambivalence. Emotional Violence unfortunately doesn't have many tracks of distinction and has the group not trusting their own gifts.

Avis des utilisateurs

FUNK / 20eme siècle, 70's-90's.

Beaucoup critiqué à sa sortie, cet album apparaît avec le recul comme un excellent cru dans la carrière de "Cameo". D'abord, le très électrique et furieusement funk "Emotional Violence" a un groove indéniable. Ensuite, la ballade "Love Yourself" est d'une grande beauté tant dans les arrangements des choeurs et la qualité des voix que dans la mélodie. Enfin, "Another Love" est tout à fait dans la tradition "Cameo", ni plus mauvais ni au dessus du lot, juste dans la pure tradition. Faites l'impasse sur "Money" et tout ira bien.

An outlandish, in-your-face stage presence, a strange sense of humor, and a hard-driving funk sound that criss-crossed a few musical boundaries earned Cameo countless comparisons to Parliament/Funkadelic in their early days. However, Cameo eventually wore off accusations of being derivative by transcending their influences and outlasting almost every single one of them. Throughout the '70s and '80s, the group remained up with the times and occasionally crept ahead of them, such that they became influences...
