Fantastic!!! A classic album,
This review is from: Hormonally Yours (Audio CD)
To think that Shakespears Sister could produce an absolute classic is perhaps not something I would have thought when Siobhan Fahey was in Bananarama. But she has, and this really is an extraordinary cd.
It's packed with hits (Goodbye cruel world, I don't care, My 16th apology, Hello (turn your radio on) and of course the massive No 1 Stay).
Everyone knows 'Stay' which was No1 in the Uk for 8 weeks, but it's important to realise that this is NOT indicative of the rest of the album. The rest is much more fast paced; excellent pop trax, but with a T-rex edge (never more evident than in Catwoman). All the trax have a wicked lyric, and the mix of Siobhans low and croaky vocal, mixed with Marcella's falsetto backing vocal works very well. (Marcella only leads on Stay).
This really is an great album.
If you like this, look out for the 3rd cd (called #3) which is currently only available on Siobhans website - it's without Marcella but rocks beyond belief.
