Exposé (1992) - 25th Anniversary

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Exposé's 3rd/self titled album and their first without member, Gioia Bruno. Ann Curless and Jeanette Jurado did all the leads on this album. So express your thoughts on this album and the newest addition of Kelly Moneymaker, who was brought in to replace Gioia.

Expose was not Expose without Gioia.

I certainly hope the girls put out a new album. This 1992 album can't be their last offering.

They are releasing an anniversary edition of "What you don't know" in AUgust through their site, like the one they had for "Exposure" a few years back, which was amazing had everything possible on it, mixes, edits, and you could also get it signed by all members. I actually like the third album too, though strange without Gioia she was often not the lead singer anyway. 3 of their first four smashes were Jeanette. Though when "What You Don't Know" came out things were more evened out with leads. But i too hope for a new record from them, they are touring a lot and playing shows so hopefully something comes out.

Singer Debelah Morgan covered "As Long As I Can Dream" for the 1999 film, "Stuart Little".

This album is definitely not worthy of a 25th anniversary commemoration.

Directionless. Bland. The beginning of the end for them at Arista.

The only single worth remembering is "I'll Never Get Over You..." (thank you Dianne Warren).

Expose is/was at their best when they stuck to their freestyle roots.

Not when they tried to be Wilson Phillips (whose sound was already passe by the time this album came out.)

yeah,it appears that Clive Davis was trying to turn them into a Wilson Phillips-type group,at that point.He should have allowed them to continue doing what they do best: dance music/Freestyle.I noticed that he did the same thing to Taylor Dayne.He started making her do all of those faceless ballads.

This is why Exposé needs to do a movie, so we can see what's going on! It don't have to be a big screen film, maybe a TV biopic.
