AllMusic Review by Ron Wynn
The Oregon husband and wife duo of Nu Shooz made a quick impact on the pop and R&B/dance scene in the late '80s with their debut release on Atlantic. It had a coy charm, fueled by the successful singles "I Can't Wait" and "Point Of No Return." Valerie Day's voice had a bubbly innocence and was mixed in such a way that it sounded almost ethereal. Their synthesized backbeats had a certain freshness, and the production and arrangements were the right mix of light and steady. It was amazing how quickly the formula fell apart.
