This superb album, the 2nd in a trilogy on Island Records, has long languished in the long shadow cast by its immediate predecessor 'Broken English' but for many it is 'Dangerous Acquaintances' that ranks as arguably the most brilliantly realised collection of the lady's career. It certainly lacks the shock value of 'Broken English' but the sheer quality of what's on offer here is simply staggering. This is Marianne's inner confessional & is a riveting listening experience from start to finish. Island re-issued this & its successor 'A Child's Adventure' on CD at the turn of 1994/95 without any publicity as I recall & I was fortunate to snap the pair up before they quickly disappeared from the racks. On the grounds that 'Dangerous Acquaintances' is one of the greatest albums ever released by Island I was expecting it to figure in the label's high-profile anniversary re-releases of a couple of years ago, but there was no sight of it. Now Island is one of my favourite labels but it seems that those who now own its back catalogue remain woefully ignorant of this exquisite work of recording art. This is the hidden jewel in Marianne's impressive repertoire & the passage of time has done nothing to diminish its appeal. This is the one to track down & cherish. It really is THAT good.

I've played this album, on vinyl, until destruction! Now on CD and wearing better (almost, that is.....what they say about vinyl IS true!) I continue to listen to Miss Faithfull's haunting voice.....and will do, always!

Format: Audio CD
I think this is Marianne Faithfull's most accessible and cohesive album from the 80s, a collection of strong songs most of which could have been hits. Sweetheart, Easy In The City, Tenderness and Truth Bitter Truth are examples of the magic between her and Barry Reynolds, while Intrigue (written by Ben Brierly) and For Beautie's Sake (Co-written by Steve Winwood) are eqully compelling. She sings with genuine feeling, the playing is tight and the themes of the songs are valid and universal. I rate this album on a par with her latest, Vagabond Ways, based on the quality of the songs and the heartfelt delivery.

A TRULY superb album that I rate right up there among her top 3, along with 'Broken English' & 'A Child's Adventure' - all my personal favourites and 'simillar' in style / appeal.
