REVIEWS

******
Großartiges Album von 1982! Leider konnten die Singles "Voyeur" und "Does It Make You Remember" wie schon die Nachfolge-Singles von "Mistaken Identity" nicht den Welthit "Bette Davis Eyes" wiederholen. Immerhin erreichten aber beide die Top-40 der USA. Eine ihrer besten Balladen ist enthalten: "Breakin' Away From Sanity". Außerdem so düstere Songs wie auf keinem ihrer anderen Alben: "Looker", "Say You Don't Know Me", "Merc Man". Ein Klassiker meiner Jugend!
****
das bereits 7te album der sängerin, pianistin und komposnistin wurde von kim und ihren keyboarder duane hitchings im alleingang komponiert. das titelstück ist schlicht genial, aber auch die 2te single undertow war fast genauso stark. alles in allem sollten 4* trotzdem reichen, schliesslich ist nicht jeder song von so einer klasse..
******
Nach "Mistaken Identity" mein zweites Album von der wunderbaren Kim Carnes, und meine Begeisterung dafür kennt derzeit keine Grenzen. Bis auf den leicht schwächelnden Abschluss-Track ist jeder Song an Power, Gefühl und Atmosphäre nicht zu überbieten. Außerdem hat Kim so eine unbeschreibliche Emotionalität in ihrer genial markanten Stimme, dass einen echt Schauer über den Rücken laufen wenn sie singt. Liebe sie echt total, und diese Platte überbietet sogar das ebenfalls geile "Mistaken Idendity". Wow!!!
******
auch wenn es gelegentliche schwächen aufwies - VOYEUR war ein stimmiges nachfolgewerk. allerdings nehme ich mal an, dass es mit dem "metropolis"-inspierierten cover und seinen düsteren themen die fans nicht nur farblich schockte, die mehr à la "bette davis eyes" erwarteten.

musikalisch knüpfte der sound jedoch mehr an "draw of the cards" an, und die texte waren teilweise doch recht düster - etwa das nur vordergründig durch den kinderchor "niedlich" wirkende "breakin' away from sanity", in der die heldin den schleichenden verlust ihrer mentalen stabilität beweint, oder "the arrangement", das bitterböse und zynisch die wirtschaftliche austauschbeziehung hinter der "liebe" bennennt.

lustigerweise nahm marianne rosenberg eine deutsche version von "looker" auf, und gleich zweimal (isabell varell und lena valaitis) gab es eine version des titeltracks auf deutsch. ich persönlich ziehe die sehr nette französische version von la panthère rose vor.
