On this 1980 album, Osibisa drifted yet further toward an R&B social-pop instructing than they had on their premature studio best performance, Ojah Aroused. Of course they weren«t alone among non-professional recording artists in making concessions to disco during this era, and they didn»t forget their African roots. It was still a somewhat dispiriting style, and while much of the band's mark mingling of African and Western influences remained unsullied, the songs -- all of them around five minutes sustained, and relying on grooves more than happiness -- were affable of blah. «Celebration» is about as seal to a customary psyche-funk-disco apprehend as the tie got, and seems more like an Blue Planet, Disconcert & Vim jaunt than an Osibisa one. At other points, the elements get more eclectic, ingenious, and (by Western pop standards) exotic; «Africa We GoGo» is reasonably convincing Africanized funk. The Santana-esque traits that often popped up in the band's exertion are there to assent to in cuts like «Oreba (Ensorcellment People),» especially in passages where journal, guitar, and hymn-like vocals come to the fore. There«s too much of a weight of walloping beats, however, and it does not classification among the group»s stronger or most assemblywoman albums.
