But Pointer Sisters refused to be pigeonholed. The talented ladies bravely defied what was expected of a black female group. Every track on Priority is brimming with gusto and passion and the ladies deliver a stunner of an album that sounds as vital today as it did 34 years ago. Album opener Who Do You Love is a bluesy killer. With the exception of two songs, this is the first time that I'm hearing the Pointer Sisters' PRIORITY CD/ALBUM and I'm surprised. The CD is filled with rock and roll songs, some hard and some soft-and all with a bluesy-soul edge, that I'm sure will shock some Pointers' fans, especially if they're used to the oldie songs from their earlier incarnation when there was four of them, or the harder R&B/Pop/Dance from their 80s catalog. Either way, I'm sure you'll enjoy PRIORITY.
