5.0 out of 5 stars Dry your eyes dear; this is a nice little record, 7 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Now ain't the time for your tears (1993) (Audio CD)
Being a big TVV fan, I was always been a little reluctant to explore Ms James solo offerings (mainly because Nick Sayer wrote the majority of their songs). But reading that Elvis Costello wrote the entire album (his punk-new wave style is not a million miles from what the Vamps were releasing themselves) I decided to give the record a chance.
I could not have been more surprised at the quality of this record, "Now Ain't the time.." is full with well-crafted, imaginative & original songs.
There is a great mix of styles, from punk to funk to Scott Walker type ballads & a bit of Beatle, which was quite a surprise as Costello wrote the entire album over one weekend.
Wendy's vocals are really strong, with a more mature sound in her voice, & she was still young enough to carry off that cocky sneering attitude.
I think one of the reasons the album wasn't a success was Wendy James was such an out-spoken individual (epically a woman who criticises the music industry), the music press were rubbing their hands, waiting to shot her down.
So if you're a big Transvision Vamp fan, you will absolutely love this record.
