5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 3 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sacred Heart was Shakespears Sister's debut album released in October 1988. On it's release, it did not fair well in the charts, however, after the release of the successful 'You're History' it did accordingly rise for a worthy period. Writing began at the end of 1987 when Siobhan was planning to leave Bananarama. Richard Feldman began writing with Siobhan and it was he who introduced Siobhan to Marcella of whom he was also a friend. Initially, Marcella was not part of the band but after persuation by Dave Stewart the pair, with the help of Feldman formed Shakespear's Sister.
Dave Stewarts involvement in the debut album is hidden in order for it to look like Siobhan was doing it without her husband's influence, however much speculation oversaw this. The first single released from the album was a double a-sided 'Heroine' and 'Break My Heart' but, it was not a success. After You're History, two other singles were released Dirty Mind and Run Silent - neither were a success.
Generally, all tracks have that classic 80's pop sound although later You're History was often being referred to as the flip-side to Stay. However, it would seem that both fans and critics take a dislike the the Bob Marley cover 'Could You Be Loved?' and in an interview in 1989 Siobhan also made clear she didn't like the track either "...It wasn't intended to be on the record...much as it's a beautiful song and I love the sentiment, I felt that it was an expression of Bob Marley's spirit and not my own, and that it didn't belong on the album." But, as Siobhan revealed, it was to be used by the Record Company as a 'back-up' or 'safety net' incase any of the singles failed, though some did (Run Silent & Dirty Mind) Siobhan maintained that she wouldn't never promote it and so it wasn't released as a single.

Siobhan Fahey and Marcella Detroit sing
their songs in a brilliant way and in a
nice harmony. It is a mixture of ballads
and electro-dark-pop. The highlights on this
album are "Run silent", "Dirty mind",
"Sacred heart", "Could you be loved?" and
"You made me come to this". All song are
good and represent their individual touch
and lyrics. Two sympathic ladies.
A nice comeback for Siobhan after Bananarama.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Old Heart Of Mine... 8 Jan 2014
By Hermes Love TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a simple soul as, I'm sure, anyone who knows me would be happy to tell you (in fact, depending upon just who it is that's doing the talking, you could very well have a difficult time indeed in getting them to shut up about just how simple I am)... but as a fan (devotee / fashion follower / willing minion) of Siobhan Fahey (or 'Shakespears Sister', as I know she prefers to be known in all discussions with regard to her artistic endeavours) I had assumed that writing any kind of review for 'Sacred Heart' would be a thoroughly pleasurable experience and, not to put too fine a point on it, as easy as falling off a log - a quick run through the playlist, a bit of drooling (don't ask) and dribbling (no, still don't ask...), superlatives by the bucketload and a gushing five star review, just like that. And yet here I am, tearing what's left of my hair out, presiding over a resoundingly four star review. So, what went wrong?

Well, trying to do a thorough reviewing job by attempting to compare this disc to Long Live The Queens! - The Platinum Collection, that's what; Shakespears Sister's debut album pitted against a collection of revamped or otherwise rarely encountered tracks, some of which can be found in their original form on 'Sacred Heart'. I feel like a cad for saying this (and, once I finish this review, I fully intend taking myself into a dark room and thrashing myself soundly with a stick of celery, hoping and praying that Siobhan (sorry, 'Shakespears Sister') will forgive me) but I feel I must give this disc four stars, if for no other reason than to show how superior I feel her more recent release is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sacredly Dark And Delicious 8 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Utterly sick of the sugar overload that the quaintly fun but never challenging Bananarama had become since that old Charlie of the Musical Diarrhoea Chocolate Factory Pete Waterman had got his mitts on them, she peeled off the skin she'd been wanting to for ages and, together with then-husband Dave Stewart's help, with additional support by vocalist Marcella Detroit, ripened into the audaciously talented and alternatively dark and fun woman she was. Clearly the 1988 public entrenched as they were in vapid conveyor-belt dirge overload were too shocked to be mobilised into snapping up the excellent first single 'Heroine' backed with the less exhilarating but fun 'Break My Heart'. From the unsettling synth-intro to the pounding drum-machine, 'Heroine' instantly upped in smoke all memories of Siob's Banana past-which was just what she wanted. Clearly one of the best singles of late 1988 period, people who remained deaf to it conveniently opened their ears as soon as the bouncy, sneering and plainly-barbed 'You're History' (with outlandishly startling vocal interlude from Detroit) was released to the airwaved and backed with an ultra-stylish, camp and utterly enjoyable video. It broke the album through which finally got some of the sales it deserved. But once again, London Records would become the headache that Siobhan thought she'd left behind. Read more ›
