Customer Reviews

It has a good beat to exercise to or while cleaning the house.
Elizabeth Schoonover
Things that make you go Hmmm, and Gonna Make you Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) are great club songs.

This is C+C music factory - undoubtedly one of the best things dance music has got to offer.

Remember C+C Music Factory?
Well,if you don't,I'll do a quick little refresher.Robert Clivalles and the late David Cole were the hottest producing team in late '80s dance music.Janet Jackson,Natalie Cole,Fleetwood Mac,among others got remixes from them and in 1990,they produced a hit album for the long-gone(and long out-of-print) girl group Seduction(remember "Two To Make It Right"-that was them!).Around that time,the two decided to become a peforming unit with two of their discoveries(an attractive Liberian girl named Zelma Davis and a Brooklyn-born rapper named
Freedom Williams).
Since the two producers(Clivelles & Cole) weren't proper singers or dancers,they recriuted Davis to sing and Freedom to rap.
OK,you got everything now? Good.
C+C Music Factory released their debut,"Gonna Make You Sweat" in
1990 and the album and C+C were huge.
Now,I bet,everyone has heard the ubiqtious title track before
or the percolating spunk of "Things That Make You Go Hmm" but there's more here that well..."makes you sweat".
The "Gonna Make You Sweat"-sound-a-like "Here We Go(Let's Rock & Roll)" was a Top 5 hit in '91 and boy,does it get you moving!
If I was an excerise instructor,this song would be played non-stop during our workouts! The reggae-tinged "Ooh Baby" is another winner.On this cut,we hear the vocals of,get this,David Cole.The beat on "Ooh Baby" is a slighty slowed down house tempo but still makes you move.This should've been a single,if you ask me.
As you probably can tell,I really miss the '90s(especially the
early-to-mid) and C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat"
brings back several memories of the period.

C+C Music Factory had a hot dance album when it came out in 1990! Most of those songs from that album I still love to this day. Freedom Williams' raps rock hard on all the numbers. And while they apologized to Martha Wash in later years for not crediting her in the songs, she sounds dynamite on the ones she sang on here! David Cole and Robet Clivilles' music playing on the album with their rapid paced keyboard playing and rhythms are just superb on all the tracks. Gonna Make You Sweat, Things that Make You Go Hmmm, Here We Go (which is kind of similar to Sweat), Just A Touch of Love, and that long ambient 9-minute

song in the middle are strong standouts. Keep in mind that dance music was hugely popular in late 1990 and early 1991 and this really represented that time well before everybody shifted to slower, calmer songs. They performed in later years at some clubs worldwide, but not with the relentless peak of back then.

The closing months of the 1980s and the early 1990s I think were among the greatest watershed years in the history of techno-dance music. Wildly popular in Chicago at the time, I have fond memories of these songs when I was seven and/or eight years old when these were new. Now at the ripe old age of 23, I still love these songs from this era. "Gonna Make You Sweat" captures among the most glorious of this phenomenal era in music history.

C+C Music Factory have sadly been somewhat tainted with accusations of the singer in the music videos of their hit singles featuring the women singers actually lipsinching as the actual singer who sang that piercing vocal of "EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!!!!" at the beginning of the title track was none other than Marsha Wash!

Is it just me, or were the early 90's an incredible watershed for music? You had a rapper named MC Hammer who hit it huge with the mainstream, something that should not have been possible in this universe, the birth of the alt-rock movement, and the meteoric success of C&C Music Factory and their brand of...club music. Yes, that's right, club music (sometimes referred to as "techno" for some bizarre reason, but never mind that). Ten minute songs. Repetition. Unapologetically dancable beats. Absolutely no attempt whatsoever to be "meaningful". Damn, I miss those days...

Well, I needn't go into great detail about Gonna Make You Sweat. If you have any familiarity with club music, you know exactly what you're getting here: Pure, unfiltered dance from start to finish. There's quite a bit of repetition (even more than in your typical club album), but the only song I found really tedious was Just A Touch Of Love.

No, no...don't even try to change my mind. Look, read my other reviews. I have more than enough deep, meaningful, evocative music. Can't I just kick back and have fun once in a while?

C+C,along with SNAP (they're back!) and TECHNOTRONIC revolutionized house/dance music with powerful groove that makes you move,beats that make you freak out and go from side to side,and gospel vocals that lift you up and make you chant.C+C rocked all the 5 continents,got all the prizes,praise,respect it deserves.It brought dance music to a new level,made it commercial,pop,likeable and most of all respected.Clivillés & Cole(what a pity he passed away- dance music will never be he same) spawned a good number of albums,compilations (ministry of sound v.3,for example) and CD singles(I'm lucky I own all of them), nice video clips and remixed other artists'works like no other dj/producer at that time did.This is C+C music factory - undoubtedly one of the best things dance music has got to offer.This is C+C's first album,but not their first work.This album is an excellent sample of C+C is all about.Listen carefully to every track and then admit : C+C is the cornerstone of intelligent and masterfully produced dance music.
