An album that first listened to touches something and makes you want to continually give it the play it so richly deserves. Deep and meaningful lyrics so expertally penned that all listeners can relate to, with the added bonus of great music to accompany them. The title track and "traumas traumas traumas" stand out even amongst the rest although there are no weak tracks on this album.

Question 19 April 2012
By melody mcginn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been racking my brain over the coals, and googling and googling, can any Marc Almond fans tell me what the song Stories of Johnny is referencing. Is this another reference to Johnny Rio? Or something entirely else? Does anyone know? Has he ever talked about the song or album and its meaning?

Surprisingly tame 4 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When Marc was signed to Virgin in the mid-80s, he issued many records that never came out in the US. It all finally saw US release in 1997 on Thirsty Ear Records. This one is his most successful solo chart LP, and it contains ten overly moody tales of lust and despair with the accompaniment of a backing band called the Willing Sinners. This also includes CD-Extra promo videos for the three fair singles, "Stories of Johnny," "This House is Haunted" and "Love Letters."

Stories of Johnny -- accessible Marc Almond 15 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not sure why the release is posted as 1997, but in fact this album was released in 1985. It is a bit lighter than much of the mid-'80s Marc Almond fare, more listenable to the casual ear, but as a result not as deep or touching as he can be. In many ways, a different kind of album from Marc.

Good Almond 28 Feb. 2006
By WrtnWrd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the better, early Almond CD's, this one includes such highlights as "The Flesh Is Willing" and "I Who Never". His hyper-romanticism is tempered by the chamber pop settings, and the lyrics are the great gothic overstatement he was born for.
