Album Review

What's not to like about the Dazz Band's highly combustible "Let It Whip"? Its funky, drum machine rhythms, and diabolical mini-Moog basslines are wicked. Reggie Andrews produced and co-wrote the sizzling groove that was Number One on the R&B charts for five consecutive weeks, and scaled to Number Five on the Pop charts. "Joy Stick" is as potent as Viagra with its maniac, thumping beat. But "Party Right Here" and "Keep It Live (On the K.I.L.)" are formulaic stiffs, all flash and no substance. "Swoop (I'm Yours)" has appeal, and some of the dance floor drawing power of "Whip." Fans of Dazz Band ballads will not have much use for this CD, only two made the disc: the ultra romantic "Invitation to Love," and the melodramatic "Knock, Knock," where lead singer Skip Martin begs like a baby. Dazz Band's honcho Bobby Harris experiments with their sound on "On the One for Fun" and "Let It All Blow," and both sound better on CD than vinyl. Each features creative fusion/funk licks, sweetened by razor sharp horns, chant vocals, and frivolous lyrics.
