Album Review

It is saying something when a song sounds great except for the particular singer who is belting it out. The belter here is Sheena Easton and the song in case is "My Cherie," which is like a melodic offspring of "Morning Train": smooth and repetitive so that it clings to the listener willingly or not. Easton's vocals are so nasally and hyperactive on the song that it is nearly unbearable, yet so hard to shake off. That said, the rest of the album is pleasant and relaxing, sometimes danceable, though not very memorable. The flip side of the song "My Cherie" is that her voice is the best thing on the remaining tracks. The joyful energy is top-notch on "Next to You" and "Too Much in Love," along with slip-and-slide production quality. There is hardly reason to dislike any of the other tracks, they are friendly and not tragically sentimental, though they pass over non-affectingly. Sheena Easton has proved herself time and again with energetic singles, as well as charming, teary ballads. Her talent extends beyond the flakiness of "My Cherie," and with potential to drive to full force like the Scottish diva she is, why she has placed her stakes at a General Hospital soundtrack level is anyone's guess.

POP Music at it's FINEST!

This is a lost gem. I don't think MCA really cared about this album when it was released. In addition, pop radio was no longer "pop" so airplay was not there. "'til Death Do Us Part" should have been a huge hit as well as "Dance Away The Blues". I think MCA was wrong in releasing the title track as the first single. It is a nice song but does not show what the the whole album is really about. If you love real pop music that is beautiful and tasteful, check this album out.

Just a bit too late...

An ex of mine and I were huge Sheena fans, when we split up we had to divide up the albums (I hear some people have kids, what's that about?). I kept this one because he never liked it... But I do. It's a difficult thing to love and appreciate an artist and then watch them make mistake after horrible mistake. At some point you end up really wanting their phone number just so you can ring them up and say, "What the hell?!" Outside of the early/mid 80's, Sheena Easton always seems to be just a couple steps behind the mainstream. "My Cherie" is a great album... And if it came out in 1991 it would have been a hit (it smacks of early 90's production in a very charming way). But much like the 2001 dance-oriented release, "Fabulous" (which seemed to be clinging onto Cher's Bob Mackie coattails for dear life), it was just a few years behind the trend. I understand iTunes isn’t necessarily responsible for the amount of work available from a major-label artist – Unfortunately though, her best works are lacking from their selection. Check out 1983’s, “Best Kept Secret” for something that actually feels ahead of its time instead of the other way around. If all else fails and you’re trapped on a desert island with no possibilities of a music store or an order from Amazon, but still happen to have a WIFI connection to iTunes, then I’d recommend the only other album of hers that’s on here, “No Strings.” It’s a good album with decent production that isn’t trying as hard to spawn a hit. Incidentally, "No Strings" is the only album of hers that my ex and I ended up assigning joint custody to.

awesome

This is still one of my favorite CD's and I bought it way back when it first came out. It's in my car CD player right now. Next To You is a dud but the rest of the album is just brilliant. 'Til Death Do Us Part is beautiful.
