Snap brought a new sound on the dancefloors at the end of the 80's. "The Power" introduced Turbo B. as a rapper and a frontman of this project, the music was made by Anzilotti & Muenzing - the producers that signed their work as Benito Benites and John "Virgo" Garrett III and mostly stood in the background, out of the public's attention, producing in their studio. "The Power" was build around the tiny drum-loop taken from Mantronix's "King Of The Beats" and then Turbo B and Penny Ford's vocals were added. Turbo B with his ferocious style and powerful voice established himself as a dominant force in Snap's albums and live acts. "The Power" track had everything to become a dancefloor hit: a funky beat, Turbo B's raps, Penny Ford's strong voice and a great melody. Their next single "Ooops Up" is also a very interesting track formed on a vocal hook "Say Ooops Upside Your Head" taken from the funky-disco classic by The GAP Band, but what really got me into it is the beat - hard kick drums and the hi-hats taken from Eric B. & Rakim's "Paid In Full" - as well as Turbo B's story based on the mistakes. "Cult Of Snap" has 4-to-the-floor beat and dominating brass adding the oriental touch while "Mary Has A Little Boy" is a more subtle piano-(Hip)-house track. "Believe The Hype" refers to "Don't Believe The Hype" by Public Enemy and has a dark bassline which fits perfectly to the chunky beat and cowbells similar to the ones in "The Power". "I'm Gonna Get You (To Whom It May Concern)" is a nice pop-ballad, while "Witness The Strength" and "Blase Blase" step into the Old Skool Rap arena, the latter even containing famous James Brown "Funky President" break, then very much used in the Rap music, combined with 808 sound.Read more ›

I can't believe no one has anything to say about this album. I got it when it came out, it looks like it now has a different cover. It is a powerful debut album, with something for everyone. It blends rap, rock, dance, r&b in a way no one had done before. I hate rap, and I love this album. It is not full of the twisted hate issues of rap, it is not the teeny bopper themes of so much rock, it is the soul searching (with some fun and self-humor thrown in) that only people like The The, Haddaway, Sylvester, Laurie Anderson, and Peter Gabriel (who tends to be more morose), David Byrne, Brian Ferry, Eurythmics, and Anne Clark can do. (Ok, there's others). They all have their own styles, and Snap! has theirs. If you appreciate the artists for what they say as much as the music they put out, you need to have this album!

I recognized the first song from back in the day, and ordered the album based on Amazon's 30 sec. samples of the remaining songs, which all sounded interesting, and all sounded a bit different. Now listening to the album in whole, and I'm amazed by the diversity of sounds, the arrangements, the rhythms. Each song has a different feel to it, but they all rock. Except for the first one, I don't recognize any of them, which surprised me. An unknown, sleeper gem. I'm going to look into more albums from Snap!

I have no idea why people have to change the original to make it better, etc, etc. But the first song practically sounds horrible now!!! Why did it have to get changed?? If it wasn't for that I would of given it 4 or 5 stars...

I like the songs "The Power" and "Ooops Up," they really rock when I play them. It's part of my growing up and it's still gives an impact when it's played. I like this cd and I belive Snap fans will too.

Ever since I first bought this in 1990 in Germany (where the group was based), it never ceases to be funky. However, they disappointed me when they removed the Hip-Hop and chose to join the Techno revolution on their 2nd album - I feel they should have Fought The Power and kept it real. Hip-Hop beats were an integral part of the Dance music genre in the late 80s/early 90s, and "The Power" was one of the hardest-hitting jams that never failed to get asses on the dance floor and start an Electric Slide group movement going among the revellers. The whole album still stands up after over 20 years.

One of my favorites from when I was high school, nearly every song is one you can bust some sort of move too. Clear and precise, with lots of techno sounds and a throw back to the original hip hop and house music.
