Biography

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Cyndi Lauper was one of the biggest stars of the early MTV era, selling five million copies of her debut album, She's So Unusual, as well as scoring a string of four Top Ten hits from the record, including the major hits "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time." Lauper's thin, girlish voice and gleefully ragtag appearance ... Read more in Amazon's Cyndi Lauper Store

4.0 out of 5 stars True Cyndi 14 Feb 2005
By Cyn Fan
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of cyndi Lauper six years ago now when I was ten years old. I was watching TV and saw her performing "Girls just want to have fun" on top of the pops 2. I asked my father to write her name down and the next day went searching to see what music I could find of hers. I found her first record "She's so unusual" and later that month purchased it. I became an instant fan and she has became my second favourite singer of all time (my first being her eighties rival Madonna). "True Colours" is a very good record and although it is one of my favourite cyndi records its not what I would advise first listeners of her music to purchase. Sometimes it is far better to start at the beginning of an artists career and then progress into their current work and I believe Cyndi's music should be followed with this rule so start with off with her first record "She's so unusual" and then progress to her second 1986 album "True colours". "True Colors" may have not succeed as well as her predecessor in the UK (it reached a disappointing No#25) but it is by no means a weaker album. It opens with "Change of Heart" a song which, did particularly well in the US but flopped over here in the UK. The opening track "Change Of Heart" is a brilliant opener to the album. It includes backing vocals from "The bangles" and has your pulse racing with excitement and joy because it is such a fun record. "Maybe He'll know" is my least favourite song on the album. I think it is rather cheesy and has a low quality feel, which effects the album, but don't let this put you off the record as their are so many chems. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Second album had some stunning moments 6 July 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Cyndi Lauper released her second album 'True Colours' in 1986, and whilst it failed to reach the dizzy heights of her debut 'She's So Unusual' from three years previously, it peaked at no.4 in the USA and made the top 25 in Britain.

For me, the highlight is the beautiful title song, an evergreen ballad and Cyndi at her very Best. Other magic moments include 'Change of Heart', in which the Bangles sang background vocals, and 'Maybe He'll Know', with Billy Joel on backup vocals. '911' is also a very catchy and energetic song, as good as anything Madonna was realising at the same time.

In all, a worthwhile album with some great songs. It isn't as good as her debut, but it is still worthy of a place in any CD collection, even if it's just for 'True Colours'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second album from Cyndi 21 Feb 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Less successful than her phenomenal 1984 debut, She's so unusual, this 1986 follow-up album is nevertheless interesting. I suspect that the rise of Madonna following her sensational album, Like a virgin, had a lot to do with it as people were less interested in Cyndi than they had originally been. Even so, this album was still quite successful, yielding two top three American hits.
The album opens with Change of heart, a track on which the Bangles provide vocal backing. It made the top three in America but only crept in near the bottom of the UK charts for a couple of weeks. The most successful single was the title track (a superb ballad), which topped the American charts and just missed the UK top ten.
Cyndi wrote or co-wrote most of the remaining songs (she did not contribute to the two hits already mentioned) but included a couple of interesting covers, these being What's going on (the title track to Marvin Gaye's classic seventies album) and Iko Iko (a hit on both sides of the Atlantic for the Dixie Cups in the sixties).
This album and its predecessor are definitely worth a listen, but while they were Cyndi's most commercially successful albums, Cyndi has recorded some great music since then including an outstanding Christmas album (Have a nice file) and a wonderful collection of standards (At last).

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Cyndi CD 19 Aug 2002
By Mr. L. Moreland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Cyndi's 2nd album was a more mature outing than her first 'pop' CD. Featuring the superhit title track and singles 'Change of Heart'(with The Bangles on background vocals) and the Marvin Gaye cover 'Whats Going on'. Theres not one dud song on this cd!!
