Life, Love & Pain are the three elements found within this eight song release from Club Nouveau. Produced & written by Jay King, Thomas McElroy & Denzil Foster (two of which contributed to En Vogue's fame) constructed timeless material for any generation to enjoy. "Jealousy" starts off by the rumors being spread and confronting bad talk and lies. Used in a hip-hop / rap sample, "Why You Treat Me So Bad" has the formula of a classic ballad. The remake of the Bill Withers' hit "Lean On Me", the Club made it faster and as stated by the vocals "...we be jammin', we be jammin'..." As another life situation approaches, it seems hard to deal with some and easier with others. "Situation #9" would fall on a scale of 1-10 an eight or nine. Thinking of someone constantly would hence the title, "Heavy On My Mind". The subtle piano and slow drum track created a dark atmosphere for the ballad "Let Me Go" as the woman in the group takes the lead. "Pump It Up (Reprise)" is the instrumental from "Lean On Me" with words and chants to pump the crowd.

Format: Audio CD
At some point during the mid 1980's,it became apparent that any major future developments in R&B/soul music was going to involve some incorporation of hip-hop rhythms and rapping. From the development of new jack swing on,that's a standard that has stuck with R&B to this very day and shows no signs of letting go. Even retro movements such as neo soul almost seem to require some hip-hop reference. During about 1984-1986 this transition was on the cusp of occurring. All the same there concept of music being based about craft and melody over beats was still heavily ingrained in the culture. And that's what keeps people saying how much "better" music seemed to be even in the mid 80's-that the craft of music was equal in importance to the rhythm and tempo. What Jay King,Denzil Foster and everyone else involved in this album ended up with is probably the precise period of time when that transition began to take hold.

Now it needs to be understood this is NOT,I repeat NOT a formuliac type of new jack swing release in the order of their third album New Beginning. In fact only two songs here fit into that category at all. "Lean On Me" and the reprise "Pump It Up". What amazes me about this track is the beat is slower and the drums are very echoed as opposed to being overly gated. It actually winds up more as a gospel flavored attitude than a hip-hop one. Most of these tracks such as "Jealousy",'Situation#9","Heavy On My Mind" and "Why You Treat Me So Bad" are sleek late 80's dance-funk more of the Jam/Lewis order.

I used to love this group this whole album is good. This was a great group and it contained some good singers and the lyrics were wonderful. I used to love this group I liked their voices, style, and their music I like this whole album ; This whole album is great. If you liked Club Nouveau in the 80's then you would definitely love this album. Also, I would definitely reccommend the Timex El-Social club as well.. This group has an exceptional male and female singer they both sing very good I would definitely recommend this album to any R&B fan. This album contains: Situation #9, Jealousy, Let Me Go, and the remake of Lean on Me I'd have to say that they did this remake very well. Above all this is a great cd.

I am soooooo happy with my purchase and play it loudly all the time. Now I don't have to pull out the turntable and 33. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity of re-claiming my youth at a time when I was happy.

This album is a must have for any die hard, true R & B fan. From the likeable dance licks to the smooth and drum moving ballads which keep your feet racing. A true collector's piece with every song a hit.
