AllMusic Review by

U.K. dance band Funkapolitan's stateside self-titled debut (issued summer 1982) was produced by August Darnell, former member of Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and famous for his own dance hit, "I'm a Wonderful Thing." The guitar/bass-driven, Latin-tinged band certainly lives up to its name, offering tight dancefloor workouts like the thumpin' first single "Run Run Run," "War" (not the Edwin Starr hit), "Illusion," and "In the Crime of Life" ("no one steals like I steal for you"). All were dance club hits and issued as 12" extended remixes. The skaters favored "If Only."
