The most inescapable funk single of 1986 was Cameo's brilliant "Word Up!," a perfect fusion of gimmicky production--Larry Blackmon's distinctive lead vocal was recorded through a transistor radio to give it a curiously distant, almost robotic quality--and an almost painfully funky groove. Following it with the nearly as perfect "Candy" is by itself enough to make WORD UP Cameo's best studio album by far, but the other five extended funk-rockers are up to those high standards as well. More than any funk band who had been releasing albums before Prince blew up in the early '80s--and that includes the P-Funk crew--Cameo understood how to update their sound without losing their essential funk, adding synths and drum machines to their bass-driven rhythms and coming up with minor masterpieces like the self-evident "Fast, Fierce, and Funny" in the process.
