I have to say that Lene Lovich is so unbelievably underrated and indeed virtually completely forgotten about, that this CD must be about the most ridiculously low price high value gem you could possibly buy.

Every song is a cleverly crafted piece of pop genius. It may not be Mozart but it is classic music nevertheless. The vocals are a strangely quirky high pitch bouncing off Kate Bush, Bjork and Sparks. The rhythms are as memorable as Abba, the lyrics far superior.

If your Lucky Number is a Bird Song with the Angels then the Writing is on the Wall for you. Buy this and you will not be disappointed. Otherwise spend your money if your prefer on a bag of sweets - same price!

Oh Lene - What Will We Do Without You? What Will We, What Will We, Do Without You.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Dec. 2008
Format: Audio CD
Lene Lovich emerged in the late 1970s new wave on the legendary Stiff label. She remained primarily a UK phenomenon although she was American. What set Lovich apart was her theatrical vocal style best demonstrated on catchy songs like Lucky Number (her first hit), the ethereal Bird Song, the fast-paced Say When and the torch song Too Tender (To Touch).

Most of the hits were written by Lovich and Les Chappel, including the quirky Lucky Number which was a huge hit (Nina Hagen covered it in German on her Unbehagen album). Not all are bright, happy numbers: the acerbic Home and Too Tender (To Touch) with its lovely piano are sad but beautiful torch songs, and there's a great version of the old standard I Think we're Alone Now.

Unfortunately not all my favorites are included. Amongst the serious omissions are One In A Million and the sinister Telepathy. To a degree, the inclusion of some rarities compensates, especially the track Blue which I had not heard before. Lovich excelled as both a quirky pop singer and a torch diva. Fans of, say, Jane Siberry and Mary Margaret O'Hara will find a lot to enjoy in her music.

Love all Lene's compilations, as subtle changes in track-listing and even the mixes used make each unique. Whilst this doesn't feature anything rare, and there are later re-mastered Best Of's out there, this is definitely worth tracking down, whether its the only album of hers you own, or one of many! Some quirky artwork completes the package nicely - so much more to this lady (and hubby Les) than one or two hit singles would imply!

While I generally think 'best of' collections are a cop-out, this is both low price and very comprehensive. For less than £4 you get a big chunk of the two albums Flex and Stateless and the singles. For the uninitiated Lene was more than a one hit wonder who produced Lucky Number but actually wrote and performed some highly (IMHO) credible music. I hadn't listened to her much since the 80s (when my cassette broke!) and had forgotten how good Bird Song is for example.

Heartily recommended

This collection was quite eye-opening. I had thought she was a bit of a one-hit wonder but there's some variety here. As well as the hits "Lucky Number" and "Say When" she does a lovely version of "I think we're alone now", and some of her songs sound quite folksy. Then there are her amazing vocals, sound effects even, she can scream and warble very effectively. I saw her in concert in Norwich in late November 2013 and she was terrific, still able to belt out those songs and make all sorts of amazing screamy noises - at 64! Very much appreciated by the audience. I think she's ready to be reappraised and enjoyed. So if you want something unusual you might like to try this.
