The Gap Band: Gap Band IV (Total Experience) ***
Michael Goldberg, Rolling Stone, 30 September 1982
WITH ITS synthesized percussion explosions, syncopated handclaps and ominous melody, 'Early in the Morning', the Gap Band's recent hit single, is the sonic equivalent of a walk through the inner city. This tale of spurned love is a smash of a track, and it's also the strongest cut on the Gap Band's fourth LP.
