Product Description

BBC Review

Ten seconds into this CD and I was reaching for the case to check who produced it. Trevor Horn -­ hardly a surprise. If yo're not familiar with the name you'll surely know the music: Seal, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and ABC are all indebted for their success. Horn's trademarks are a sense of drama and the sheer gloss that stands out so immediately. Paired with Stansfield they're an 80s A-team. But do they still have the magic touch?

"All Around The World" (1989) was Lisa's biggest hit. It revealed a rare ease of phrasing harnessed to a voice full of old school soul. Weighed down by power ballads, this album shows off little of those assets. Half an eye is surely on America, where white women and Motown rarely mix.

"Easier", the opening track, epitomises the tag 'sophisticated adult-oriented pop' which ZTT Records have coined for their offering. It could also translate as 'assured but uninspired'. The first single, "Treat Me Like A Woman", comes next and is a more feisty affair, full of texture and whit. Sadly, its momentum is squandered all too soon by more 'sophisticated' stuff.

There's a taste of Stansfield at her best on "If I Hadn't Got You", written by Chris Bradie and Chris Difford. Ironically, it's the least ambitious track, content with a pleasant groove that allows Lisa to relax. "Takes a Woman to Know", which rounds things off, is an outstanding piece of production, but once again it pushes Stansfield into being prematurelygrown up.

The Moment has got class but lacks creative direction -­ an accurate reflection on the pair responsible. --Antony Hatfield

5.0 out of 5 stars Why did I wait so long? 16 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't think I can add much to the other reviewers, except an apology to Lisa. You could say I grew up with her music but haven't listened to her for awhile. I knew this album was around but kept putting off buying it, wondering if I would still enjoy her music the way I once had. All I can say is I regret having waited so long. Her voice is as superb as always and this is a good collection of tracks that test her range. If you like Lisa, you're bound to like this. And track two, 'Treat me like a woman', is bound to put a smile on every woman's face.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS & AMAZING 29 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I`ve counted the days: release of this album. And promised my brother everything for sending it to Germany.And it was worth it - every single day. The music, arrangement & the lyrics - TOP!Lisa is still "the right thing". Every track is so heart-warming-sung and special that it`s impossible to choose only one favourite. I love: "He touches me" `cause it reminds me of my boyfriend:-))

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best! 13 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The combination of Lisa and Trevor Horn is sensational. I wouldn't have thought she could better anything she's done before but this is it. The quality of production with Lisa's voice is wonderful. Even for those who aren't fans would be converted listening to this album. However, I am amased that it hasn't been given more air-time here in the UK. I can't stop playing it. Look forward to seeing her perform it live.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word - Incredible! 2 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I just received this Cd today and, let me tell you, it is incredible! Each and every song is a catchy confection of pop/r&b/ and occasionally jazz. the first track and single "Easier" is a slow and sultry soul jam. From there, it just gets better and better. Every song is memorable from the first listen . I don't think Lisa has ever made anything less than a good album, but this one is great, and on par with her self titled '97 album. For a change, only 5 of the 12 tracks are co-written by Lisa. The result is the perfect Lisa Stansfield album with an excellent production by Trevor Horn. Lisa deserves a hit out of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is AMAZING!!! 17 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Lisa's for years. I tend to like the CD's that may have not been the most popular ones. In the case of Lisa I have always stated that "So Natural" was my favorite album.
That has now changed. I cannot believe how great of a CD this is. The emotion is amazing, the production superb and the songs are all hits. Lisa you have made a classic gem that I will cherish for years. This is definetly one of my top 10 favorite CD's of all time. If you love Pop/R&B then YOU NEED this CD. Favorite tracks...When Love Breaks Down, Say It To Me Now, The Moment, IF I HADN'T GOT YOU (Release this one next!), Love Without A Name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lisa Stansfield The Moment 3 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
What can i say ...This is an absolutely brilliant album..but then you always get quality from Lisa...I love this music and the lyrics are so real...the music genre has a very valid appeal in the charts of today. Timeless, unadulterated pleasure!! Even anyone who isn't a fan of this artist can not fail to enjoy her vocals.

Swing [Region 2] [import]Check out Lisa in the Film SWING.. another great and feel good film, sadly unreleased in the U.K but can be found here on Amazon..you won't be disappointed.
