It Takes Two

£ 12.99


Jerry and Katreese Barnes' second album as Juicy has a handful of spectacular songs that exemplify the heavily synthesized mid-'80s R&B sound. Though "Sugar Free," a not-so-distant descendent of Mtume's "Juicy," was the only one to put a truly significant dent on the chart, the album is rather solid from front to back. Each of the eight songs is directed at a "you," with Katreese's vocal turns coming out ahead of her brother's. Eumir Deodato's sensitive production is bright and pliable, full of echo-y machine beats, zipping synthesizers, and all sorts of sparkly effects. It Takes Two only falters during those brief moments that are interrupted by heavy rock guitars.
