Release and reaction
Released December 12, 1985. It's notable that this was the final album to feature vocals from original member Bobby Brown who shortly departed for a solo career after the release of this album where the group reluctantly forced him out due to managerial concern of the group's image being tattered by Brown's outbursts. Brown did come back for the album Home Again in 1996. For a couple of years, the group lineup was essentially a quartet of Ricky Bell, Ronnie DeVoe, Michael Bivins and lead singer Ralph Tresvant.
