A gem in a near-perfect back catalogue

Re-issued 17 years after it's original release date, this collection of songs showcases the Pearson Siblings in a way never heard before by fans. After four successful albums with RCA, Five Star signed to Epic in 1990 and produced an album entirely within the confines of their home-based studio in Berkshire, England. All of the tracks on 'Five Star' are written and produced by the group, (with help from their father and some noteworthy musicians), and each member takes turn on lead vocals. It holds many surprises for those who only have the group's first four albums: - Doris takes lead vocal on the only two singles released from this project; 'Treat me...' and 'Hot Love', the former being remixed by Shep Pettibone especially for the album. Both of these songs show the group moving away from the bubblegum sound that carved their niche in the mid 80's into a dance/RnB tinged pop feel. Other eyebrow raising moments come in the form of Stedman taking lead vocals for the first time ('Feelings') and Denise Singing in Catalan (a little spoken Spanish language - 'Tienes Mi Amour'). We are still treated to Five Star By Numbers tracks such as 'That's The Way I Like It', (Guitar solo? Check. Repeat Chorus to Fade? Check), which will please most fans. As a collective, this album gives us the variety of pop styles usually featured on Five Star albums - pushed further. 'Feel Much Better' is their sexiest, sultriest ballad to date and 'What about Me Baby', Deniece's obligatory rock number, blows the cobwebs off like Aerosmith live. For those familiar with the Five Star album format, this album will satisfy immensely, but to newcomers may seem disparate and incohesive; this was the Pearson siblings making a project that was true to all their tastes and influences, and has become a favourite amongst many fans. Disappointingly, it failed to reginite their career (the UK release was cancelled after negative press stories cemented the group's demise), but great to see it at last available for fans who have been clambering for it for years.

Fantastic Stuff

Five Star firing on all cylinders here. Excellent production and the songs are some of the best the group ever produced. It's just a shame interest in the group had waned by the time they released this great album back in 1990. Check out Hot Love & That's the Way I Like It.
