This is the album that all die hard Marianne fans have waited the past decade for. Following on from 1999's melancholy yet infectious offering, Vagabond ways, Marianne shelves contemplative, earth mother for sassy rock goddess - welcome back Marianne.The list of collaborators reads like a who's who of rock royalty, old and new - Beck, Blur, Jarvis and Billy Corrigan to name but a few. The opening track (Sex with Strangers) sets the tone for the entire album, its Marianne sultry, laid back defaint and above all the girls speaking from experience....."Time for sex with someone else?" 'The Pleasure Song', 'I'm on Fire', and 'Wherever I go all provide an insight into what Marianne's made of but 'Song for Nico' marks a point where Marianne pulls out all the stops. Without doubt the Jarvis Cocker/Faithfull penned 'Sliding through Life on Charm' is one of the albums highlights if not the sassiest offering of her career. This is Disco 2000 sung by a woman who knows what she's talking about, and will have you tapping your toe before she even refers to her most intimate parts by a word that a woman of her age should not even understand! The next couple of tracks support everything before, but Marianne comes back with class in the form of 'Kissin' time' - Faithfull's conviction and Damon Albarn'raw talent fuse to provide a breath-taking conclusion. This album will astound fans and newcomers alike from the opening line of the first track to the last note of the last it is amazing that a woman with so much real talent just keeps oozing more.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Aug. 2007
Format: Audio CD
The amazing list of collaborators on this album drew me to buying it as I wasn't too familiar with any other Faithfull songs except "Broken English". The input from Beck, Dave Stewart and Blur gives the album a great deal of musical authority and depth, but each of the songs is very careful not to swamp the overall 'theme' of the album, Marianne's retrospective and bitter-sweet lyrics. The album hangs together very well, it's surprisingly coherent considering it has had so many different producers involved.

My main problem with it though is that it is too introspective, in my opinion. The Jarvis Cocker co-write "...Charm" is pretty much the only even vaguely upbeat track on the album, the rest of the songs are all ballady. Not that I've got anything against a good ballad, mind you, but in my generalising opinion the best albums are a balance of the up and the down. And this is too down. A matter of taste, of course, but something to bear in mind if you're buying this because you're a fan of Blur, Pulp, etc., whose albums are much more balanced in that way than this one is.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 July 2002
Format: Audio CD
Marianne has always been an expert at bouncing back from obscurity, as with the legendary Broken English in the early 1980s. Kissin' Time sees Faithfull still at the cutting edge of pop with assistance by Beck, Billy Corgan, Dave Stewart, Jarvis Cocker, and Blur on the title track. In her book Memories, Dreams and Reflections, a short chapter is devoted to discussing the songs and the musicians on Kissin' Time. Marianne claims that the style was very deliberately 1960s retro as if it were the follow-up to her work of that decade. Not predominantly aotobiographical, the album happily celebrates love & life with a theme of fandom permeating it.

I have always associated Marianne with other famous blondes of the 1960s like Nico and Anita Pallenberg, so it's apt that she does a tribute to the Velvet Underground chanteuse with the expert help of Dave Stewart. This era produced another Nico tribute; compare the song with the same title on the album How I Loved You by Angels of Light. But I miss the emotional resonance and authenticity of 1999's Vagabond Ways.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Marianne Faithfull has always been expert at staying ahead of the times, as with the seminal Broken English in 1979. Kissin' Time sees Faithfull once again at the cutting edge of pop, with assistance by Beck (Sex With Strangers, Like Being Born, Nobody's Fault), Billy Corgan (Wherever I Go, Something Good), Dave Stewart (Song For Nico), Jarvis Cocker (Sliding Through Life On Charm) and Blur, on the title track.

I have always associated her with other famous blondes of the 60s like Nico and Anita Pallenberg, so it's apt that she does a tribute to the Velvet Underground chanteuse with the expert help of Dave Stewart. But I miss the emotional resonance and the authenticity of Vagabond Ways, her previous masterpiece. After the first track, the listening pleasure only really resumes on the ironic Sliding Through Life On Charm with its witty autobiographical references. Talking of which, Marianne discusses this album in her book Memories, Dreams and Reflections.

I also love the lilting pop/reggae of Love & Money and the lovely pop of her cover of Goffin & King's Something Good, which is reminiscent of the type of innocent 60s songs she used to sing at the start of her career. If it weren't for the voice of course, that has dropped to a more husky tone. My tracks of choice also include Sex With Strangers with its ironic comments and nervous beat.
