Overview

Attitude, the second album from the California quintet Troop, featured four charting singles. The first release, "I'm Not Soupped," is the least credible of the four. With the title's rather doltish connotation, the dance number still managed to peak at number 19 after only 12 weeks on the Billboard R&B charts. The second single, "Spread My Wings," elevated Troop's national image. The song's vivacious rhythm and exhilarating hook and pre-chorus carried it to the number one spot for two weeks. The third single, "All I Do Is Think of You," a Jackson 5 remake, sustained the group's appeal. With its schoolboy-crush lyric and empathetic arrangement, it sailed its way to the number one spot as well. (Both of the latter numbers were produced by Chuckii Booker.) The fourth single from the album was "That's My Attitude." It is similar to the first release, which is not saying much. However, the charts found it more pleasing; it peaked at number 14 after 15 weeks. There are other songs here that warranted chart action but didn't find it. Overall, this is a reasonably representative album for the group.

Troop I can't get I will always love you out of my mind. Since I was a teenager I always wanted this song. I've searched for it & no one ever had it. But Barnes & Noble came to my rescue. I've ordered & can't wait to get it. I miss you guys. What are you doing? You help pave the way for many artists after you. P.S. I will always love you stills ring loud in clear in my head.
