Album Review

Arista was poised to take Taylor Dayne beyond the dance tracks and drum beats which established her as a force to be reckoned with on her smash debut Tell It to My Heart. Can't Fight Fate, her sophomore outing, featured much more straight-ahead rock & roll, lush production, and top-notch songwriters (including Diane Warren, who penned her biggest hit "Love Will Lead You Back"). The album proved an even bigger success than her debut, scoring two Top Ten hits, one number one hit, and one Top 20 hit. Unfortunately, however, the momentum was lost after this album, and Taylor Dayne never again reached the commercial stratosphere she scaled with this set. The album's dance songs, such as the lead-off Top Five hit "With Every Beat of My Heart," feature more organic instrumentation, although there are a few straight-ahead dance tracks, such as "Up All Night." The ballads are lush and dramatic, and one of them, "Love Will Lead You Back," soared all the way to number one. The real killers, however, are the rock songs, and Taylor delivers like a true, seasoned rock star. The set's third single, the Top Five hit "I'll Be Your Shelter" (also written by Warren), brings to mind Tina Turner, while other tracks, such as the unstoppable "You Can't Fight Fate" (again written by Warren) and "Ain't No Good," are just as delicious, and should have been hits. The hit procession unfortunately stopped after the groovy mid-tempo jam "Heart of Stone" failed to reach the Top Ten. Years after its release, this album stands the test of time, and can safely be classified as one of the more diverse and exciting dance/pop/rock albums of the late '80s/early '90s. ~ Jose F.

Customer Reviews

Easily Dayne's best album!

I'm actually old enough to remember some of the singles taken from Dayne's second album "Can't Fight Fate." I just turned 27 and I can't believe how long it's been since some of these hits have been on the radio! Dayne's voice is clearly the star of the show in this album. She is in my opinion the most underrated vocalist of the 90's. She was more known for her dance hits in the late 80's than her poweful ballads where she vocally rivaled Whitney Houston and Celine Dion. I like almost every song on this album. Each song on it could leave the listener picturin it as a single. My favorite track has to be the #1 hit "Love Will Lead You Back." I used to love that song in the early 90's and completely forgot about it until I downloaded it a few years ago. The rest of this album is also top notch. Whether you're new to Dayne's music or just a casual fan CHECK THIS ALBUM OUT. It's her best album. "Satisfied" comes in second to me.

Can't Fight Fate

I have been a Taylor Dayne fan for most of my life! I misplaced this album years ago, and I had to get it again, over 13 years after its release. Her talent is unmistakable and undeniable, and wherever she is now, I hope she knows she has a true fan in me! Much love, Ms. Dayne!

Totally Awesome

I used to play this in my car when I was a Senior in high school. I wore out the cassette at that
time when I was listening to it. I am so glad that technology has changed, so I don't
have to wear it out. She totally Rocks.

Dance-pop diva Taylor Dayne (born Leslie Wonderman) had a remarkably quick ascent to stardom in the late '80s, sailing into the Top Ten with her first single, "Tell It to My Heart." Dayne began singing professionally after graduating from high school, performing with the rock group Felony and a new wave outfit called Next; neither band had any success. Once Dayne finished college, she began singing solo. Her first effort was a dance interpretation of the ballad "Tell It to My Heart"; her version...
