5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL NEVER CHEAP, 3 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Cheapness and Beauty (Audio CD)
George stuns us all with a showcase for a voice reaching new highs. Listening to the rockier tracks you wouldn't konw it was him, but the ballads reveals THAT voice in all it's glory. The album is autobiographical, each song sang with such meaning. 'Sad' will make you want to rock, 'I'l Adore' will almost certainly make you cry and in whole the album will certainly make you sit up and listen. Sit back and enjoy, you WON'T be dissappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars a smack in the face for critics., 29 April 2008
This review is from: Cheapness & Beauty (Audio CD)
Released smack bang in the middle of the Oasis / Blur era, and the boy done good yet again!! A different approach to the usual Boy George stuff, this is rough, rock, indie - and heavy!! Included 3 hits here Fun Time, Il Adore and Same Thing In Reverse, and although Sad, Satan's Butterfly Ball and Unfinished Business were massive in gay bars all over the country, this cd should have put Boy George back on the top of the charts, believe it or not if you were into the indie movement you are gonna love this cd. Top Marks

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap AND Beautiful, 28 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cheapness & Beauty (Audio CD)
This album is amazing I had it on cassette when it was originally released and played it a lot, but since having it on CD it has been played over and over again from the Bowie/ Iggy Pop opener with Funtime you realise this is George breaking out of the box and has a hard rock vibe. Favourite tracks If I Could Fly and Il Adore which are classic Boy George heartbreakers, but title track Cheapness and Beauty and Evil Is So Civilised are cracking rock songs. I wish he would record more often

This is Boy George as an up tempo rocker and embellishing himself and all of us who listen with sensual beauty.Oh,do not forget the slow ones,these are lovely emissions as well. A very good listen indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy George's best solo album yet!, 28 April 2001
By 
Matthew Lindsell (Milton Keynes, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Cheapness and Beauty (Audio CD)
This album is a must have for every fan of Boy George and Culture Club! From the excellent opening track, Funtime, right through to the end this album is superbly performed. A hard-hitting mix of rock, pop and "ear-glamour", Cheapness and Beauty is the voice of a more confident, mature and intelligent George. Stand-out tracks include Same Thing In Reverse, Cheapness and Beauty, Satan's Butterfly Ball and If I Could Fly, which has to be one of the most powerful songs in this man's colourful career! It may not have made such an impact on the charts, but this album should be ranked as a solo masterpiece in every way! Buy it today!
