Produced by Bernard Edwards (of Chic fame), Color in Your Life saw Missing Persons apply further cosmetic surgery to their already highly commercial sound. Funk was a touchstone currency of the new romantic movement, and Missing Persons accommodated it with more dexterity than some, but that's not saying much. Dale Bozzio's voice flounders in this unsympathetic environment, and the band play like they know the game is up -- and it was. Dale, who had long-since romantically disentangled herself from husband Terry Bozzio, moved on to release a solo record on Prince's Paisley Park label.
