Album Review

Can anyone really have expected much of a new album by Lulu in 2004? Forty years after she shot to stardom in England and 37 years after she did the same — briefly — in America, she would seem to be part of the fraternity of older English popsters who periodically step into the studio for another go at recording, without too much heavy lifting. So how come she's giving 103-percent or more on Back on Track? And how come the title of this 2004 album is strangely appropriate? The look, as she peers out from the inner fold of the inlay card on the CD, is the same kind she gave us in 1964 — the synthesized drums are something new, but otherwise, that raspy, bluesy voice competing with the electric lead guitar sound is not at all different from the 17-year-old who carried the Isley Brothers' "Shout" up the U.K. charts and parlayed it into a television and movie career. "Keep Talkin', I'm Listening" is the single and the lead-off track, but Lulu acquits herself well on "Now You Love Me," with its ringing guitar accompaniment, and plunges into harsher territory on "Slow Motion," a hard-rocking track that's a special surprise coming from the 56-year-old pop star. Then she moves into balladry with "Could I Be More Blue" and fills out the music's aching lyricism, and follows it with the even slower, softer, lovelier "All the Love in the World." The rest of the record is hard, loud rock & roll broken up with a pair of guitar-driven ballads, "Roll the Dice" and "Sentimental Heart," and ending on a luscious mid-tempo rocker, "Where the Poor Boys Dance," that could have been a single. There are no notes and the credits are printed ridiculously small, but there are lyrics that are readable, and the music is good enough that any flaws in the packaging are incidental.

Customer Reviews

lulu is the BEST

She unfortunately has not had albums released in the US for about 20 years. She is one of the finest singers and one of the most underated and overlooked in the business due to her lack of releasing anything here. But this album has a couple of sure hits on this CD. "All the Love in the World" is lush and so beautiful that it should be a BIG pop hit." Could I be More Blue " has a nice country tinge to it also a hit. Lulu's voice has become stronger and richer over the years. If you had a chance to see her on American Idol you heard her great voice LIVE! Go out and get " Oh Me oh My" its one of her best, The Best of Both Worlds another great song from her earlier days. Maybe Mercury Records will release this CD and give us a chance to see this GREAT singer, and have her grace our stages!

Haven't bought it...but it sounds good so far!

I'm really young so I didn't know who Lulu was until she was on American Idol to help the contestants. She seemed pretty cool and I totally forgot about her and found her while browsing. I'm supprised that someone as old as she is can make a really good album. I like KT Tunstall, The Beatles, etc. so this album works for me. If you're a fan of this type of music, I'd go ahead and buy it. I just have so much new music I bought that I'm putting it off for a few months.


Lulu comes true, Her style voice and music is SO powerful now. This is her best work ever. Love ya Lulu.

In the United States, Lulu is thought of as a one-hit wonder, having scored a memorable number one hit in 1967 with the bittersweet and evocative "To Sir, With Love" without ever duplicating that feat (though she did land three other singles in the Top 40). But in the United Kingdom, Lulu had already scored a handful of hits when "To Sir, With Love" was released as the B-side to "Let's Pretend," and at home she would become an enduring star in pop music, on television, on the stage, and in the movies,...
