The hit "Another Lover" was a catchy piece of dance/pop fluff, and The Book of Pride, the album that followed, surrounded "Another Lover" with similar R&B-flavored pop tunes. Unlike other '80s one-hit wonders, Giant Steps actually recorded more than one decent song. The album's opener "Steamy" is pure Minneapolis soul, and "Into You," the duo's only other chart single, is Scritti Politti-style romantic dance pop at its finest
Giant Steps' only album, The Book of Pride, was released in 1988, and its first single "Another Lover" became a hit in the United States, peaking at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. It became very popular in Italy in 1988 as well, garnering considerable airplay on pop radio.

Giant Steps did just that in 1988, when the leadoff single from the duo’s first/last album prompted confused Scritti Politti fans all across America to send (The World Don’t Need) Another Lover (download) straight up the charts: That’s only one explanation for the success of Another Lover, and it’s impossible to verify, but it makes me laugh, so we’re going with it; it’s also basically the entire story of Giant Steps in a nutshell . So what about the rest of The Book of Pride? Well, it’s actually sort of awful. Just sort of awful, though.
