The Time was one of those bands that had its moment in the sun due to the influence of superstar Prince. Not to say that the band lacked talent as Morris Day sure had a style. However, The Time came on the scene at the height of the Purple Reign.
Anyway, this six song CD consists of the two super hits Jungle Love and The Bird. Both of these tunes are great to get on the dance floor and shake your money maker to. Also, Ice Cream Castle and My Drawers are two additional strong tunes with good if repetive melodies. The Kid Can Make It is semi-memorable if a little long. The only real clunker is Chili Sauce which consists of endless rapping at a restaurant set to the background of a tuneless accompanyment of string laden synthesizers. No melody in sight on this one.
Therefore the three star rating seems appropriate. Thise who like funky stylings similar to Prince might like this recording even more.
