    This record absolutely slaps, the music speaks for itself. Very high quality pressing too with an excellent mix.

      Their best LP by far. Mike Jackson on background vocal also helps!

        Great album, no doubt, BUT I alway feel as if they should have included the the full length version of 'Light up the Night'...I'd never heard the 'single' version till I purchased the album a couple of years after release!
        Up until then, I had listened to the song via the 12" maxi version which feel 'right' clocking in at approx 4:55 while the LP version really feels and sounds like a 7" edit, somewhat stunted, especially after the extended workout of 'Stomp' that preceeds it.
        Anyway a very good album, probably my favorite by the brothers mainly because I feel it represents a 'perfect storm' of disco/soul/funk perfection.
        The 'Brothers', Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton create the perfect 'Trinity' on this album which I rate right up there with 'Off the Wall' & 'Give Me the Night'...

          Of course, this record contains the number one smash, "STOMP". That really is a classic track which always has everyone boogieing. The other good thing about this record, that never fails to raise a smile, is the front cover. The way that Louis E. ‘Thunder Thumbs’ Johnson is holding the light makes it look as though he is cradling a large and fat, pink-headed tallywhacker!!

            Nice arrangements. Great players!
            Faboulous sound!

            Dang!
