Released: Jan 1983
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Helmed by rock producer Richard Perry, the music of Break Out is completely synthesized dance-pop. The contrast between the robotic arrangements and The Pointer Sisters' gospel-inspired vocals creates a powerful frisson that the ladies allude to in "Neutron Dance," a song about partying despite the techno-apocalypse. The first half is stacked with singles like "Jump (For My Love)," "Automatic," and "I'm So Excited" (a re-release of a 1982 single, and a major hit the second time around). The second half isn't as good, despite the sexually explicit funk of "Baby, Come and Get It."
