||The best CD|
.T.O. P is probably the best album by Tower of Power. It is a great funky-soul mix. I hope they will record more CDs such as this.

||Tom Bowes strikes again!|
On his second turn as the T of P vocalist, Tom Bowes continues to amaze. Combining the best of Rick Stevens and Lenny Williams, Bowes can bring the funk or ballad with any singer.
By craigsaustin (Vallejo, California)
This album is by far one of the best TOP albums. I love the FUNK/SOUL/(and yes. ) Contemporary stlyes that are messhed together.

||This CD grows on you...|
When I first threw this CD in the machine I didn't quite know what to think. It is clearly a bit different from the straight ahead, funky soul trademark of T.O.P. But , the more I listen to these cuts the more it grows on me.

If you missed the days of Oakland Stroke and Lenny Williams, this is a rebirth of America's #1 Soul band. The boys are back!
