5.0 out of 5 stars Cyndi at her best 17 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I had been after this CD for years and finally got around to buying a copy. I can't express how great this album is and would highly recommend it to all. It is Cyndi finally reaching the potential that we all new was there. There is fantastic maturity and feeling to these songs and "Say A Prayer" is has firmly become one of my fav songs of all time. Other highlights are "love to Hate You" and "Unhook the Stars". Buy this and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the 80s overshadow the 90s! 18 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Because of her frivilous, girly fun image in the early 80s Cyndi Lauper's efforts as a songwriter and serious artist are often overlooked.
Sisters of Avalon is one of her best albums to date. The melancholy and poignant 'Unhook the Stars' for me is the standot track and the best song Cyndis ever written. There are more fun tracks on here, such as 'Brimstone and Fire' but this is essentially a mature album.

5.0 out of 5 stars So artistic 16 Feb 2014
By Sam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What struck me about this CD is how artistic it is; tracks like Fearless and Mother are simplistic yet captivating and so intriguing to listen to. The sound of the Dulcimer gives this album a folk-like edge to it, whilst it still clings on to a rebellious atmosphere due to songs such as Sisters of Avalon, Ballad of Cleo & Joe and Love To Hate. A great buy, but I could understand why people may possibly not like it due to its hidden depth.

HAT FULL OF STARS was(is) an amazing album made by this unique and fantastic artist and this album matches it with sheer brilliant style and giving it a harsh gritty realism which gives this album a whole lot of power.
i personally love this album and it isnt only of her best but it is also another one of the greatest of all time.
Sisters Of Avalon-5/5
Ballad Of Cleo & Joe-5/5
Fall Into Your Arms-5/5
You Don't Know-5/5
Love To Hate-5/5
Hot Gets a Little Cold-4.5/5
Unhook The Stars-4.5/5
Searching-5/5
Say A Prayer-5/5
Mother-4.5/5
Fearless-5/5
Brimstone & Fire-5/5

the bonus track Lollygagging seems a bit pointless but is a fun 10 seconds.

a great oriental feel album with many unique styles of beat and you will never hear an album quite like this anywhere else,it is one of the best albums ever made,only beaten in trend by BRING YA TO THE BRINK but this along with-Hat Full Of Stars,Shes So Unusual and True Colours are sheer brilliant albums...and Sisters Of Avalon is a triumph of an albu and is genuinly great to listen to.

i want eveyone to purchase this album:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless 29 Sep 2003
By Donn Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In all honesty, I truly believe that this was one of the best recordings of the 1990's. So many people always have, and sadly always will, think of Cyndi Lauper as the goofy New Wave chick with the Day-Glo hair and the wacky clothes, and really, only two or three of her numerous smash hits from the 80's are even remembered.
I'm going to be shot for this one, and I really don't care; this album, together with "Hat Full of Stars," makes Cyndi's 1980's work look like so much forgettable, trite pop (except "Time After Time," "True Colors," and "Money Changes Everything," which are all immortal). Cyndi plays a number of different instruments on this one, including guitar, recorder, dulcimer, zither, and omnichord. Her voice sounds remarkable, and the arrangements are fresh and invigorating, and utterly original.
The fact that "Sisters of Avalon" was not one of the biggest hits of the last decade is an absolute crime against humanity. The music is all over the place, she borrows from so many different styles. "The Ballad of Cleo and Joe" is a dance-club-ready song with a Middle-Eastern flavor. "Love to Hate" qualifies as grunge. "Hot Gets a Little Cold" and "Fearless" are beautiful folkish songs. "Fall Into Your Dreams" is a really cool slow burn. "Say a Prayer" is what would happen if jazz and rap mated. "Searching" and "Mother" are New Age and yet somehow not. The title cut and "You Don't Know" are anthemic and powerful songs with amazing hooks that should have been chart-toppers.
I feel Cyndi's plunge into obscurity in the '90's can be attributed to a few things; 1) her refusal to stick with the pop formula that made her rich and instead make out-there records like this, for which I truly respect her; 2) she's a female singer who turned the big five-oh in June of 2003. Let's face it, Johnny Cash can have a hit record at 74, but Cyndi Lauper can't have one at 50...it's a double-standard and it bites; 3) the image she had in the '80's, which seems to have permanently and unfortunately labeled her a relic.
Say you were a fan growing up back in the day. Or even if you hated her back in the day. Either way, go ahead and buy this record. You'd never believe this is the same woman that sang that pre-teen slumber party anthem "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."

5.0 out of 5 stars What does a girl have to do? 12 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After "Hat Full of Stars", Cyndi Lauper still could not get arrested and now with "Sisters of Avalon", an accesible and brilliant album I still hear Britney Spears squawking away instead of Cyndi Lauper's new material. Cyndi has grown so much as an artist and songs like the hard rock anthem's "You Don't KNow" and "Love to Hate" showcase her talent well. Dance halls should be blasting "The Ballad of Cleo and Joe" and we should all be slow dancing to songs like "Hot Gets a Little Cold" and "Fall Into Your Dreams". The most touching song is "Fearless"...simple and simply great! BUY THIS ALBUM!!!! You won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to Avalon with Cyndi and her Sisters 8 Aug 2002
By Zachary S. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album came out in 1996, and personally I was not used to the new sound of Cyndi Lauper. I guess I was still living "A Night To Remember." After playing this CD about three times, I felt that this is a wonderful album with such soul. It's a very eclectic album with Cyndi singing as she's never sung before. God, She's good!
SISTERS OF AVALON: Starts this album off with a bang! "Felt someone calling me into the howling of the wind." is the first lyrics she sings. This song is truly about union and strength. Very Spiritual.
BALLAD OF CLEO & JOE: is also awesome. Very dancey/disco/club song about a ballad of a drag queen "And the working boy becomes a dancing queen."
FALL INTO YOUR DREAMS: This song is one of my favorites. I love the melody as well as the wonderful lyrics. This song should have been a single "Little baby, on my shoulder
I could fall into your dreams ..."
YOU DON'T KNOW: was the first single off this album, and a song I truly love and relate to. It's about not fitting in, which I think Cyndi's had issues about ever since fame. "You don't know where you belong You should be more careful As you follow blindly along ... You just need to belong somehow." and I definetly think that's true.
LOVE TO HATE: Is a very nitty gritty song... totally cool!
HOT GETS A LITTLE COLD: acoustic/folk type song. Very cool and lovely lyrics.
UNHOOK THE STARS: This song took a long time for me to get into but I was going through a difficult time and these things helped me to know that other people go through hard times as well. "Just when everything's in order and good, things fall apart."
SEARCHING: Also a very cool track! Cyndi opened with this song a few times on the tour for this album... very new age "Feel like I'm crawling on my belly Longing and glad ... Excited at prospects, Humbled and mad"
SAY A PRAYER & MOTHER: These two tracks are still growing on me is the reason I gave this album 4/5 stars.
FEARLESS: YES!! An awesome song... most of us first heard it on the RuPaul Show! Great song! I love it, one of the best ballads she's done!! "But if I was fearless ...Could I be your reckless friend"
BRIMSTONE AND FIRE: A very Cutesy-Cyndi Type song. It's fun... felt kinda like "I KISSED A GIRL" From Jill Sobule..
But all in all, this album is wonderful, although i still love "I Drove All Night" and "Money Changes Everything" this feels like the ultimate complete album. Go buy it and don't expect the same Cyndi from 1984!

5.0 out of 5 stars CYNDI'S HEART & SOUL. 29 Aug 2004
By S. Quinto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Cyndi's "Sisters Of Avalon" proved once and for all that she is a talented Lady. Her album came in the years of the return of poppy zappy happy pop, around the beggining of 1997. Sadly it didn't receive that much airplay and it failed to charte any single in the HOt 100, but scoring two Bubbling Under tracks. The leading single "You Don't Know" it's a perfect rock-track that could compete to any established rockers of the mid-90's like Morissette or Crow. But I guess the name Lauper haunted her to the hands of the record players in radio waves, denying her the benefit of the doubt. "The Title Track" my fav one, is an uplifting pop track with great vocals and rhythms, and one of the best opening tracks of any album I have ever heard. Other amazing tracks are the haunting "Searching", the mellow "Unhook The Stars", the funny reagge feelin' "Brimstone on Fire", the twisting "Ballad Of Cleo And Joe", the sweet and slo "Fall Into Your Dreams", the rock age "Love To Hate", the diming "Hot Gets a Lil Cold", oops I almost mentioned all the tracks, already, well guess what the album is that GOOD, so hopefully as many core fans of Lauper mention, people will rediscovered the underrated pop-rock gem, and give a lil respect, an amazin album by Lauper and I'm not afraid to state, maybe her best. *****FIVE STARS

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a fine wine... 16 Aug 2005
By Blake Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd several years ago (I believe I was 18 at the time) and was somewhat disappointed. I absolutely loved all of Cyndi's other albums, but had trouble enjoying this one. Well, after a couple of years had passed I started listening to 'Unhook the Stars' and decided to give the album another shot. I couldn't believe what I'd been missing out on! The title track, 'Hot Gets A Little Cold', 'Fearless', and 'You Don't Know' are my favorite tracks. So, at least in this writers case, I found 'Sisters' most enjoyable after a couple year's shelf life. If for some crazy reason you couldn't appreciate this album on first listen, now's the chance to give it another shot!
