A group that has changed its personnel and its style as many times as the Imperials will require a Cross Rhythms 8-pager to document properly (Give us a break. Ed) so suffice to say this is the thirty something album by a group baring the Imperials name and pretty good it is too. Producer Paul Mills gives the group some nice funky synth-pop arrangements full of 1992 appeal though I'd love to know what American youth thinks of a group manned in part by grizzled wrinkles targeting music splat them. My favorites on this set are "Taking Your Love For Granted", an infectious midtempo throbber, and the somewhat slower and funkier "We're All In This Together". America can seemingly turn out quality pop gospel like this at will, and I can imagine quite a few Christian jocks giving this a radio airing.
