This review is from: Hormonally Yours (Audio CD)
I bought this album after hearing it at a friend's house. Since we tend to have the same taste in music, I bought it, and I saw that it was good.
This album seems to go through stages. The first three of four tracks seem to be very upbeat and synthetic, but with depressing lyrics in the most part. These include 'Goodbye Cruel World', 'I Don't Care', 'My 16th Apology', and 'Are We In Love Yet?'. The best of these, to me, is 'Goodbye Cruel World'. Very good.
Then we seem to slip into darker, more earthy and depressing tones from tracks five through nine. The best of these more depressing tracks are 'Emotional Thing', and the incredible 'The Trouble With Andre', which blew me away when I first heard it. It's VERY good.
We get back more into the pop-rock section at the end of this album, with 'Catwoman', 'Let Me Entertain You' (now you know where Robbie got the title from), and 'Hello (Turn Your Radio On)'. While I think this is a slightly strange way of laying an album out, I can't fault a single song.
So in conclusion:
Goodbye Cruel World - 8/10
I Don't Care - 7.5/10
My 16th Apology - 7/10
Are We In Love Yet? - 7.5/10
Emotional Thing - 9.5/10
Stay - 9/10
Black Sky - 8/10
The Trouble With Andre - 10/10!
Moonchild - 9/10
Catwoman - 7.5/10
Let Me Entertain You - 6.5/10
Hello (T.Y.R.O) - 8/10
Very good album, and since it was released during the 90's, it won't be expensive to acquite. Buy it, love it. Or don't. Up to you.
