Exposé - Point Of No Return 2011

80's girl group Exposé is back with a rework of one of their biggest hits. Chris Cox is at the helm of this new version. The classic synth hook from the original is beautifully incorporated into the semi-chilled production. It has some hard sections and huge buildups. Featuring new vocals, the Cox mixes do a great job of introducing this dancefloor classic to a whole new audience. Also included is a new 'original' version (the 2011 Version) which unfortunately feels a bit watered down production-wise in comparison to the re-recorded version from the 80's which featured the current configuration of the group and even the original first version which also had another group configuration and name (X-Posed). At times, it sounds like they are singing over a karaoke instrumental. The Chris Cox mixes are the perfect update. There's just a radio edit and club mix. The new vocals do sound drastically different from the familiar original, however, it must be noted that they do not sound overprocessed or have extensive autotuning (T-Pain type).

An exclusive CD single featuring these three versions is for sale on their website here
(there's no word at this time about whether these will be available for purchase digitally through one of the digital music retailers)

Grade: A- (for the new Chris Cox mixes)
