Debbie Harry - Def Dumb And Blonde - Cd
Top Customer Reviews
I want that man, Lovelight, Get your way and the pure punkrock: Bikeboy, Bugeye,Comic books and Forced to live could easily be recaptured under the Blondie name. This album contains three beautiful ballads: Calmarie, Briteside and End of the run which are breathtaking! The only song which is a mistake is the annoying I'll never fall in love.
Great album especcially if you love Blondie !
Curiously, the weakest song on the album is the opening single, `I Want That Man' (written by Tom Bailey and Alannah Currie from The Thompson Twins), which was a huge hit in a number of countries outside the US. In comparison to the rest of the album, it is overly frivolous and frothy, plus it suffers from piano-heavy production that dates it rather badly. While it is certainly not bad, the rest of the record is much better.
This set of 15 songs features no less than eight first rate Harry/ Chris Stein (Blondie guitarist and former long time partner) compositions. The album could have comprised only these and the first two singles and it would still have been brilliant. `Maybe for Sure' and `He Is So' are dreamy, haunting new wave pop partners. `Get Your Way' is an awesome dance rocker with a quirky, attitude-heavy rap break. `Bike Boy' is a screeching mid-70s punk rocker and `Brite Side' is an almost-ballad, full of the beautifully poetic turns of phrase that are uniquely Deborah Harry (though the mix featured in the closing credits of the 80s/90s TV series, `Wiseguy' was better).Read more ›
A good mix of pop / rock / punk and ballads.
This cd spawned some strong singles, the pop genius of "I want that man", the gorgeous 'Brite Side', and the brilliant 'Sweet and Low'.
Its filled with great songs, 'Kiss It Better', the beautiful 'maybe for sure' and 'Calmarie', 'He is so' (check out the violins on this pop gem), the sweet jamaican lilt of 'I'll never fall in love again' and the final track 'End of the run', which is one of her strongest moments, and a truly emotional track.
A great album, worthy of a space in any pop collection.

Def Dumb & Blonde is a masterpiece - some of the finest material ever written and recorded by Deborah Harry. "Get Your Way", "Bike Boy" and the brilliant "Maybe For Sure" are my personal favourites but the whole album when I first bought it got played to death!
It is great to see that, despite being nearly 63 years of age, she is STILL writting and recording material that would put artists more than half her age to shame.
Great album and great price and an ESSENTIAL purchase for anyone with even a remote interest in her work.
Having fallen under the spell of Miss Harry from 1977 I have enjoyed every phase of her career to date and look forward to the next incarnation she comes up with. Whatever it is will be enjoyable. Out of sight is definitely not out of mind to her fans.
