Notas editoriales de iTunes

Led by chief songwriter and lead singer Larry Blackmon, Cameo's ten-year run culminated with the two big hits off this album, "Word Up' and "Candy." Built around a slang phrase popular in the day, "Word Up" followed the vibe set on Cameo's earlier hit from 1984 "She's Strange." And if that weird vocal by Blackmon sounds like it was recorded off a transistor radio-well, it was. Besides the album's two biggest hits, Cameo kept the funk and roll vibe alive with strong album cuts such as "Fast, Fierce and Funny" and "Back and Forth."

For all you KoRn Freaks:

Cameo made this song. I am a 12 year old boy and I know this. I love KoRn and Alice in Chains and many more bands like that, but if you think KoRn made the original Word Up!, you must be mad. I love the song, and the others too. Funky and groovy and hard not to dance to!

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...
