A mess

Leny Navarro

I love Amanda, but this album is a pure mess, lacking direction. Amanda you can do better!

Cabaret style

As a fan of Amanda Lear since her 1st album ever came out, I have to say this new album was not what the title implied
Its always nice to listen to Amanda but this album lacks ambiance... and the revamped Fashion Pack track is horrible, and halfway through the album i felt to go take a nap... As a lifelong fan from Amanda i have to say this album is a bit of a let-down Best song is Aujhourd'hui, catwalk is just rubbish, and couleurs is the worst!

La Lear...Still the Queen

Amanda Lear delivers a fresh album that DOES live up to its title. It's not quite as edgy as some of her recent efforts (think I Don't Like Disco and "Chinese Walk"), but this set delivers the kind of mood and style we expect from the artist --and I did enjoy this collection more than her Elvis misstep some time ago. Highlights of this project include the fun and spirited "Good To Be Bad", beat conscious "The Best Is Yet To Come" (in its dance mix) and the obligatory but nicely done retake of "Follow Me". I've seen some disappointing reviews for this album, and no, the set isn't Sweet Revenge, but I found it to be a solid production and, indeed, very entertaining. Looking forward to more remixes.

About Amanda Lear

Amanda Lear first surfaced in the early '70s as a fetishistically clothed album-cover model for Roxy Music. She was said to be a transsexual but, as she told Interview magazine, that was just a ruse dreamed up by her sponsor, David Bowie, to draw attention. Her importance to disco fans, however, began in 1977, when she recorded I Am a Photograph in Germany with production help from Tony Monn. I Am a Photograph is the first of six sleazy, hard-to-find albums in which she flaunts a voice so heavy with low notes it makes one wonder if she really isn't a man after all. But Lear's slow notes are simply an exaggeration of the whiskey-voiced sultriness created by Marlene Dietrich. That isn't to say, however, that Lear's lyrics -- or the music's inverted proportions -- don't exploit her mythology as a kinky concoction to the bursting point. ~ Michael Freedberg
