Editors’ Notes

Here Lies Love is an unlikely concept album based on the lives of the former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos and her nanny Estrella Cumpas and their divergent fates. Marcos’ fascination with the clubs and discos of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s gives Byrne and collaborator Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook) free rein to create their own dancefloor numbers. Together, they employ a wide range of female vocalists to tell their story and frame the sound for a fantastic discotheque. British singer Florence Welch opens things with the disco-fied title track. Tori Amos sings as Imelda’s mother Remedios on the sultry South-American blues of “You’ll Be Taken Care of.” Steve Earle breaks up the female block with “A Perfect Hand,” a track that leans into Earle’s country background with a piano that slowly transforms into a barroom tinkle. Cyndi Lauper excels on the electronically hopped up “Eleven Days” and on the funked-up finale with Tori Amos, “Why Don’t You Love Me?”  By the time Byrne makes his vocal appearance near the album’s end on the techno-laden “American Troglodyte,” it comes as a surprise. The man behind the scenes makes his presence known at long last.

Customer Reviews

Best album of 2010 so far

Get it!

Be prepared to be singing these songs for days...

Really enjoyable album with a great range of vocalists. Only downside is that so many of the tracks will stay in your mind for hours & days after playing them and there's a limit to how many times you're prepared to hear your partner belting out "...here lies love!...here lies love!... oh oh oh oh oh...!"

Favourite album 2010

The title of this review tells it all: of all music purchases I have made this year, this is by far and away my favourite.

Clever writing combines with a sound political sense of justice and a wide range of artists to give an interesting album that I have listened to again and again... and the only one that I have read the digital booklet for!!!
