Released towards the end of 1989, Belinda's third solo album strengthened her position in the UK as a credible performer appealing to a broad fanbase.
With six songs co-written, and whole album produced by Rick Nowels, it's easy to see how his songwriting has since progressed (he co-wrote Robert Miles' One & One, Madonna's Power Of Goodbye, Ronan's Rollercoaster and Melanie C's Northern Star amongst others). It wouldn't take much imagination at all to imagine Belinda singing the latter two in particular.
Leave A Light On, Runaway Horses and (We Want) The Same Thing are all classic pop-rock stompers, although the version of The Same Thing on this album was thankfully beefed up for single release. Vision Of You is suitably tragic, La Luna suitable dramatic, and Summer Rain, suitably the best thing she has ever done.
Released as a single in Christmas 1990, to capitalise on the top ten success of The Same Thing, Summer Rain was never going to be a festive hit (it was released in the US as the follow up to Leave A Light On and made the top 30) but it remains the highlight of a conventional yet original set of 10 songs. With lyrics from Maria 'Body Rock' Vidal, the dramtic scope of the story told and accompanying video should have made it an MTV classic.
Of the 4 album tracks that weren't released as singles, Whatever It Takes is one of the strongest on the whole album, complete with BV's from Bryan Adams (the song was written as a duet but he didn't care for a shared lead, apparantly). DDeep Deep Ocean is also a highlight, complete with George Harrison guitar solo.
While the singles weren't all huge successes, its nice to knwo that enough people bought the album to appreciate the 10 songs here, and the fact that Amazon are selling it some 11 years after its release its even nicer that people will still interested.
All the singles are stunning and sound just as good now as they did then; Leave a Light One / Runaway Horses / Summer Rain / La Luna / We want the Same Thing and Vision of You. The rest of the album is on a par with the singles; Valentine / Whatever it Takes / Shades of Michaelangelo, all beautiful.
And to top it all off, the album has been reissued with very comprehensive extras; remixes, 7" edits, and all the promo videos on DVD.
One of my favourite albums of all time has just got even better! This is a must buy.
As if the passionate, energetic "Leave A Light On" were not perfect enough already, it also includes a Slide Guitar solo by the incredible George Harrison. When Belinda sings "hold on tight" in "Runaway Horses," it is good advice because this song can truly run away with both your imagination and your heart. "Vision of Love" is just beautiful--warm vocals, great lyrics, great music. Belinda's voice conveys layers of heart-felt emotion that she never before expressed so fully. "Summer Rain" is one of Belinda's best songs ever, with beautifully sweeping choruses that take you to the railway stations she sings about to watch her true love ride away never to return. "La Luna" is a passionate love song with a distinctly Latin feel to it, accentuated by the sounds of a Spanish guitar and Gypsy violin. "(We Want) the Same Thing" is a rocking track with a strong and steady beat.Read more ›
There are songs of love, remembering and a sense of longing to be in each other's arms no matter what happens. This album turned out to be one of my favourite albums of 1989 and it still sends a shiver down my spine. I absolutely adore and love the closing track "Shades of Michaelangelo" because it's beautifully written and I just love the use of the words 'the tears of the angels' to describe the rain. An album that should be owned by anyone who likes this amazing talent.
