AllMusic Review by

Here are two out of the Kassav's Big Four doing their thing in 1985 -- though the rest of the core lads are playing right along with them. The uptempo tracks blend their U.S. funk effectively into the cadence/salsa frame. The interplay of synthesizers and faintly baroque strings is engaging, Decimus's bassline is meaty, and trendy references are consistently witty. As always, the most satisfactory tracks are those in which the band doesn't reach for sophistication past the cadence norm.
