This album is awesome! It's a lot better than I thought it would be. Alannah is like this really cool rocker chick!!!
If you like that sort of thing.......
This album isn't terrible, but it's definately not great by any means. If you like the fiesty pop rock sound that was the early 90's this is for you. Black Velvet is a classic for sure, but this one hit wonder is just that, a one hit wonder. So, if you're looking for another smash on this cd don't waste your time and just buy Black Velvet by itself. And by the way, Keep Rockin' People!

About Alannah Myles
Toronto rock singer Alannah Myles spent several years struggling unsuccessfully to secure a Canadian record deal, so she and songwriting partner Christopher Ward set their sights south of the border. Myles recorded a demo and video for the song "Just One Kiss," which got the attention of several companies and ended up on her self-titled 1989 debut album. "Love Is" established her in her home country and made Alannah Myles the biggest-selling debut in Canadian history, but it was the smoky, sensual "Black Velvet" that became a worldwide hit, reaching number one in the U.S. An American release of "Love Is" fizzled as a follow-up, and Myles thus far remains something of a one-hit wonder to U.S. audiences. She released a follow-up album, Rockinghorse, in 1992. ~ Steve Huey
