4.0 out of 5 stars just needs a hit
I too had this on cassette and thought it was unavailable on CD but just bought it for a fiver - probably cheaper than the original cassette. I'm not sure about the dinner party description of the other review but clearly Ute was attempting to attract a more mainstream audience with this. Top notch LA producer, session muscians, songwriters,etc. Its a pity she didnt do...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't recording engineers ever bother to listen to......
what it is they've actually recorded? Perhaps they dragged some innocent carrying a Sony cassette recorder off the street, and forced him to press the Record button.
Meanwhile the band have decided their mission in life is to obliterate Ute's voice; and Ute herself evidently told on each take "tone it down a bit love for gawd's sake." Thus her usual range of smokey...

Top notch LA producer, session muscians, songwriters,etc. Its a pity she didnt do more like this.

The best comparasion I can think of is Barbara Striesland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic moody album, 24 April 2011

I bought this on tape originally and waited a while for it to come out on CD. This is an excellent album. Moody, evocative. A move away from cabaret and musical styles and is more in the easy listening line. Nearly all in English, however that has never detracted from enjoying Ute's other work, however it does add a softer edge to her voice. There isn't a single filler track on this album, all of the songs stand up on their own merits, highlights being Crime of the heart, Ruby, Sabotage. It i an ideal background CD for dinner parties, but I have also played it numerous times with the lghts low and a glass of wine- lovely. Atmospheric, beautifully sung. Well worth the price.

Meanwhile the band have decided their mission in life is to obliterate Ute's voice; and Ute herself evidently told on each take "tone it down a bit love for gawd's sake." Thus her usual range of smokey passion through raucous sensuality is reduced to anaemic simpering punctuated by fusillades of piano/orchestral din:- a grotesque insult to her.
Let us fervently hope the engineers and producer were dispatched to where they belong; the job centre.
