Eye Dance - Boney M
on 12 August 2008
This was Boney Ms final studio album. This time Bobby Farrell was forgiven and brought back into the mix, making Boney M a five-piece for the first time. It is, to me, a truly unlistenable album.
The first single 'Young, Free and Single' starts things off and now sounds incredibly dated, though in all honesty it didn't sound all that great in the first place. The second single was a dreadful song called 'Bang Bang Lulu', a song so awful and crude (Black Lace would have been embarrassed) that lead singer Liz Mitchell refused to sing on it and a session singer was brought in to replace her.
Much of this album is in fact an aborted solo album by Reggie Tsiboe, which explains his lead vocals on a number of tracks.
Liz Mitchell is hardly heard (the only decent song is 'Chica Da Silva sung by Liz) and Marcia cannot be heard at all.
Frank Farian takes on a few leads himself, but the main problem is that it just does not sound like Boney M at all.
As you may have guessed by now, I don't think much of this album - and even Liz Mitchell has admitted that she doesn't like it either(describing the recording as a shambles).
