Picks and Pans Review: The Sisters

UPDATED 04/05/1982 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/05/1982 at 01:00 AM EST

Sister Sledge

The four Sledges have struck quite a happy medium between soul and pop music, as this LP demonstrates. There's Super Bad Sisters, full of hyper-funk with a couple of rap choruses, My Guy, the old Mary Wells hit (with the old Motown arrangement), Grandma, a pleasantly nostalgic tune ("Grandma showed us what to do/And we did it well") by Robert Allen and Art Austin, and a couple of ballads, including Joni Sledge's II Mácquillage Lady. This album's We Are Family is Jacki's Theme: There's No Stopping Us. It's invigorating and insistent without being tedious—a sort of neo-disco The Sisters are whom we have these days instead of the Supremes.
