The most surprising of Motown’s first four Lost and Found CDs is this previously unreleased debut album by the Four Tops. Who’d have thought that one of the company’s rawest and most emotionally devastating acts ever could achieve such a glow on a song list full of the sort of standards that often embarrassed the likes of the Temptations and the Supremes? Breaking Through is both a thoroughly pleasant listen and a window on the Tops’ expertise at sheer vocalization. Loose and vivacious in a way that their hits aren’t, it’s a different–not better, just different–Tops we hear here. And better late than never. –Rickey Wright
