Able to move with the times, bringing all Oral VS Anal VS Murder / ☠skullnbones☠ - Pain On Both Sides Part 031 elements of the new breed into their sound, and keeping their funk roots intact while traversing the slippery slope of s dance, the Bar-Kays scored another hit with 's massive Dangerous LP.
Whittled down to a hefty octet for this outing, the Bar-Kays easily proved they were still up to their old tricks, smoothly updating their sound while continuing to take some well-intentioned and good-humored jabs at more than a few peers along the way. This now-traditional penchant, never meant to hurt and only done in homage, is perhaps best heard across the album's three hit singles. Not only was the monstrously sassy "Freakshow on the Dance Floor" an integral Lovers Should Never Fall In Love - Bar-Kays - Dangerous of the film Breakin', Lovers Should Never Fall In Love - Bar-Kays - Dangerous the incorporated elements from Midnight Starr 's "No Parking on the Dancefloor" were just evident enough to prove that the similarities were deliberate.
Following on the heels of that hit came the mid-tempo groover "Dirty Dancer," which tongue-and-cheekily captured the essence of Michael Jackson 's current "Billie Jean," leaving the synthed-out "Sexomatic" following quite happily in Prince 's purple footsteps.

The title track remains an outstanding sliver of smooth dance that seamlessly incorporates more than a few Euro-disco splashes into the mix. It's very much of its era, but still compellingly fresh nevertheless. Elsewhere, the band rounds out the relative frenzy with one single ballad, the well-intentioned "Lovers Should Never Fall in Love," capping off another effusive, energetic set.
