Another of Bob's great post 70s releases. He can serve up a mix of spice and sweet all in one musical spoonful.Again you like the bell-tones of Rhodes electric married to great arrangements and a penchant for the hook this is for you.Nice well executed smooth jazz (I hate the term BUT it is true) this isn't Return to Forever in your face rock fusion. Deeper into the album/cd tracks prove Bob can really utilize dynamics to get a mood across to the listener.He dips into latin, funk, a little disco, classical and of course jazz waters with stride. Brilliant!
  • Nilador
Just completely delightful. A real cool blend of both worlds. Still rockable even over 30 years later! Well, crafted, well mixed, pure genius and artistry in the vocal and instrument arrangements. A pure delight!
  • Opimath
That sample tho.

Well, it had to happen. Bob James attempts to cash-in on the hottest songwriter in those days, Rod Temperton. Unfortunately, the guy who wrote "Thriller" and "Rock With You" left a bag of dogshit on James's porch, lit it and ran (perhaps the origin of "The Steaming Feeling"). It's kind of what he did with a lot of the Heatwave albums. Temperton appeared to save his best songs for the artists most likely to capitalize on them, guys like Michael Jackson and George Benson.As a result, the best tracks here are James's originals. "Unicorn" is quite good. Now, that's not to say that Temperton's tracks are awful (though the title track really IS awful), but you have to lower yourself to the level of grocery store muzak circa 1981 to enjoy them. Not impossible, but difficult.
  • HappyLove
I have to disagree with you. Temperton and James made an awesome partnership with this, he even returned to 1982's Hands Down. Sign of The Times and The Steamin Feelin arrangements were perfect for Bob James. Minimalistic yet deep and funky, exactly the kind he had back in the late-70s-early 80s. "Times" was so popular, that here in Brazil it was called "Melo do Bebado" (Drunken Song) because of the overall weirdness of the song.
  • Rko
This is a great record. I was initially a little skeptical about it because, being a 1981 release, would it not be getting away from the 70s era Bob James jazz funk sound I love? Well, it does, kind of, but that turned out to not necessarily be a bad thing after all. Definitely there are some 80s dance influences here, but it hasn't entirely lost the 70s groove, either. The real jam here is Sign of the Times, the intro to which I think was sampled for the intro of Regulate by Nate Dogg and Warren G. The rest of the album is pretty solid as well. I would give this record 4-4.5/5, definitely worth the fairly low price I tend to see it selling for in my area.
