Album Review

By sticking primarily to funk and disco, Watch Out is one of Barrabas' most streamlined and consistent albums. The thematic content of "Swinger" leaves the song in the year it was recorded — a shame, since it contains some of Juan Vidal's wildest keyboard work (not to mention a guest performance from Herbie Mann on flute). "Week End" is one of the group's best songs, a low-key and simple groove anchored by a thick bassline from Miguel Morales; gorgeous string accents and floating vocals from some uncredited female vocalists add a melancholy flair to a song whose mood is belied by its title.

Guitarist Ray Gomez and saxophonist Michael Brecker also guest on this decent album.
