Album BackgroundEdit

When "Exposure" was first released, it featured the original 1984 recording of "Point of No Return", with lead vocals by Alé Lorenzo.

On all subsequent versions of the album (including its release on CD), the re-recording with Jeanette Jurado on lead is featured, which was also the single version released to radio several years after the original made its rounds on urban radio and in clubs.

However, all pressings of the album feature the original 1985 recording of "Exposed to Love", with lead vocals by Alé Lorenzo.

Lead vocals of the majority of the album were sung by Jeanette Jurado; Gioia Bruno and Ann Curless each sing lead on two tracks, with Bruno on "Let Me Be the One" and "December", and Curless on "Extra Extra" and "Love Is Our Destiny".

On the track "I Know You Know", Jurado sings lead, then Bruno provides a soulful improvisation at the end.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"Exposure" peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200 and #20 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart. It was certified Gold by the RIAA in May of 1990.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Jose F. Promis of Allmusic said that the album "typifies the essence of '80s pop/dance music, and no accurate '80s collection would be complete without these hits from Exposé, one of the biggest acts of their time."

Robert Christgau gave it a "B-" and said that it "paints its frontwomen a blank beige so as not to distract from the electrobeats, which it mixes high and clear enough to deliver three dancy hits and set up the platinum-plated schlockaballad "Seasons Change."
