Amg Review: As The 1980s Progressed{l}starpoint{/l} Became Increasingly High Tech: Synthesizers And Drum Machines Were A Big Part Of Hits Like "object Of My Desire" And "what You Been Missin'" (both From 1985). But At The Start Of The 1980sthe East Coast Band Still Favored A More Organic Production Style; On This 1980 Lp{l}starpoint{/l} Sounds Like A Real Band That Plays Real Instruments. At That Pointits {p}material{/p} Was Along The Lines Of Aurra And {p}steve Arrington{/p}-era Slave; In Factlead Vocalist {l}renee Diggs{/l} Reminds The Listener Of {l}starleana Young{/l} (who Sang Lead With Both Slave And Aurra) On Funk-dance Items Like "get Readyget Down," "let Me Love You," And The Single "i Just Wanna Dance With You." This Lp Isn't In A Class With Slave And Aurra's Best Workbut It's Decent And Likable. The Up-tempo {l}selection{/l}s Are Catchyif Obvious And Clichédand The Soul Ballads (which Include "girli'm Up For Your Lovin'" And "never Find A Better Love") Are Pleasant Even Though They Aren't Remarkable. All Things Considered{l}starpoint{/l} Is One Of The Band's More Noteworthy Releases. -- Alex Henderson
The First Release Of Starpoint Produced By Lionel Job
