I first heard the album years ago, and the music still haunts me. Laurie Anderson creates a unique atmosphere -- her voice, whether she is narrating or singing, is equally melodious. You get the urge to sing along, but the intricacies of Laurie Anderson's voice are hard to follow... Enjoy!

If you only know Laurie Anderson for that annoying "O Superman" chant, give the girl a second chance! From the opening of Sharkey's Day through to the closing of Sharkey's Night, featuring avant garde author William Burroughs narration, this is an album which thrills the senses with imaginative lyrics and sounds, and grows on you with every listening whilst also being quite accessible. What's more, as a showcase for the abilites of the Fairlight Comupter Musical Instrument for creating entirely new sounds, this ranks alongside Peter Gabriel's eponymous fourth album as a real aural treat. And Peter duets with Laurie on the "Excellent Birds". Excellent indeed!

Umpteen years after first hearing this, it is still one of my very favourite albums and, to repeat a quote quoted in the track Blue Lagoon, "something rich and strange". I've never grown tired of it and probably never will.
The sound palate is unique, like nothing I've ever heard before or since, and always keeps me enthralled (while the lyrics have me amused, bemused and moved almost to tears by turns) from the very beginning to the very end.
This, along with the also wonderful if slightly less quirky Strange Angels, is Laurie Anderson at her most accessible. In a better world it would always be in those lists of Top 50 albums of all time and remains in my Top 10.
