Bet Cha Say That to All the Girls

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Amy Hanson
With veteran jazzman-turned-funker George Duke at the production helm and a plethora of well-known musicians -- including Al Jarreau, Michael Sembello, and Jeffrey Osborne -- arrayed behind them, a late-in-the-day Sister Sledge released Bet Cha Say That to All the Girls to moderate success in 1983.

Sister Sledge was instead bent on bright pop. Leading with the strong charting single "B.Y.O.B. Bring Your Own Baby," the rest of Bet Cha Say That to All the Girls unreeled in much the same manner. The superb harmonies and lush strings and horns swing from smooth R&B to light funk and back to classic mainstream pop with ease, as the beautiful ballad "Once in Your Life" and the funky closer "Thank You for the Party," as well as the title track, emerge as the album's real highlights. With perhaps a little too much emphasis placed on a light, bright sound which ultimately sacrifices substance, it's no surprise that this set foundered. Too much sugar can spoil even the sweetest dessert.
