Arrington could well have been Prince. Both emerged around the same time, both writers who employed Rick James-style funk, laying down preposterous grooves and playing a great deal of the instruments on their albums themselves. However, Prince’s eclecticism was to prove his unique selling point, while Arrington stuck to the script and is preserved as a fine example of mid-80s soul. The album is a fine showcase for Arrington’s intensely upbeat, optimistic grooves. Last Nite/Nite Before is cheeky, light and easy, a quiet storm; Weak at the Knees is repetitive, grinding funk, later sampled by Jay-Z and NWA. Strange (Soft and Hard) provides yet more robust riffing. You feel that Arrington could have been capable of rather more than what we end up with.
