iTunes Review

Eleven years since her last album of original studio material, Cyndi Lauper’s 2008 release Bring Ya To the Brink shifts to the dancefloor. Her voice has always been a natural force, able to stretch elastically over notes, and her team-ups here with outside producers and writers use that talent wisely. “Same Ol’ Story” is pure soul diva. “Lay Me Down,” produced with Kleerup who’s most notably worked with Swedish pop star Robyn, charges at seductive strength, as does a worthy collaboration with the London electro-pop group Dragonette for “Grab A Hold.” Remix expert Scumfrog co-wrote the club-strutting opener “High and Mighty,” and Lauper sells herself as a partying extrovert for the Euro-disco grooves of “Into the Nightlife” (that receives an extra commercial push from noted song doctor Max Martin who’s worked similar wonders for Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson). But while Lauper can indulge and experiment with the best of them, she sounds most comfortable in the familiar surroundings of the album’s closer “Rain On Me,” where she recalls the winsome longing of her classic “Time After Time” and the long-gone era it represents.

I cannot escape from the NightLife

I've seen Cyndi perform live three times now, all within the last six years, a time beyond her "popular" leanings with the public. Performing live, Cyndi not only matches, but surpasses her recorded forays into the world of popular music. "Into the Nightlife" is the latest treasure we are lucky enough to find in our hunt for good music. From the title track, to the inconsequential remainder of the album (referring to the complete ignoring of all the other fantastic tracks), "Into the Nightlife" delivers a fun, reverential, self-reflecting album that draws the dance feet to tap, but takes up residence in your mind.

LOVE this album and Ms. Lauper. I listen to her "Time After Time" and never lose a taste to listen "All Through the Night."

cyndi is back!

i didnt think it was possible but an 80's artist come back with a hit! into the nightlife

welcome back, cyndi!!

wow, talk about a great dance album! this album reminds me of Confessions on a Dancefloor because of it's pure club energy. I guess this is Lauper's interpretation of that energy. she really did team up with some really good producers to make this record, and i love the driving dance beats and synths, and of course cyndi's playful yet subtle voice. WELCOME BACK, CYNDI!

Cyndi Lauper was one of the biggest stars of the early MTV era, selling five-million copies of her debut album, She's So Unusual, as well as scoring a string of four Top Ten hits from the record, including the major hits "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time." Lauper's thin, girlish voice and gleefully ragtag appearance became one of the most distinctive images of the early '80s, which helped lead her not only to the top of the charts, but also to stardom. Throughout America, there were...
