More music to keeep your body workin' from Kleeer. The opening track Taste The Music is a heavy bass-loaded dance number which leaves you in no doubt the band can still get you moving at will; it's impossible to stand still and listen to this one! There's a slightly odd backing vocal in German during the break...maybe a reference to the origins of electro-dance and bands like Kraftwerk? Track two I've Had Enough is a more thoughtful, laid back, groove which gives hints to Kleeer's previous incarnation as a rock band...check out that guitar break! De Ting Continues get's back on the dance theme. It's a Synth-funk Special with a not-so-subtle nod to Parliament in the opening vocals. Ending side 1 Wall To Wall packs in more bass-heavy funky beats to finish on a high and leave you eager to turn the record over. Side 2 doesn't disappoint with the opener: I Shall Get Over. Here the backing singers do a Gloria Gaynor and tell the whole world they'll survive....in fact more than survive; they're going to fly! Nice piano break by Terry Dolphin on this one which is an unusual touch in this style of music. It leads into a breakdown and re-build which takes us through to the outro. Nice! Next up, the men want to be your 'Fella'. A pleaful Ballad-with-a-Beat that reaffirms the Girl Power theme voiced in the preceding track. On to Swann and the men are in woman admiration mode. This one's a sugar-coated ode to love with little to commend it but, by the same token, it's inoffensive and pleasant enough to listen to. The final track is Affirmative Mood. It's an instrumental and although the band seems to have run out of words by this stage, they've definitely got their groove shoes back on. It's a mid tempo number with a good beat and plenty of strings in a lush arrangement, complete with ecstatic female background vocals...in French. That's another slightly odd inclusion and like the German vocal in track one, maybe this a reference to Space (who were French and did a similar vocal theme in Carry on Turn Me On)? All in all a very listenable album by one of Synth-Funk's finest. C'est Bon!
