CD Reviews

Clever, witty, and highly recommended
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Amanda Lear is one of the most talented lyricists and under rated artists to emerge during the late 70's disco era. Unlike her contemporaries there was always evidence of a higher intelligence at play in her work. And while all those wailing one note disco queens have long gone - Amanda remains around recording wonderful (albeit rarely) albums such as this. Sure some of the songs are instantly disposable (Angel Love, Muscle Man) but they remain the minority. Its clever, its witty, and its danceable - Highly recommended. Now if only a major record company would recognise the genius of Lear and get her to record more frequently...."
Amanda did it AGAIN!

"Wow, after so many years in the music business, this queen of pop & Disco never fails to stretch herself to the limits for her fans all over the world.She seems to be tireless, and always fresh.
I'm very glad that Amanda stays with her audience, and what they like, and she knows what her audience likes!A big BRAVO !"
Excellent dance album! Definite camp must-have!

"Overnight sensations have come and gone, but Amanda Lear has had an amazing and well-deserved staying power that she only boosted with the incredible underground dance album "Cadavrexquis" featuring the fabulous hit single "Fantasy" in 1993. She followed it up with "Alter Ego" which was a lighter, more straight-forward europop album ... and it's great fun from beginning to end! The opening single "Every Time You Touch Me", despite being a sultry dance track, didn't catch as much attention as the hi-NRG dance tracks "Angel Love" and "Peep!" that followed as singles. Amanda's lyrics are just as great as on her classic 70s disco albums, her praise of "Muscle Man" and "Go Go Boy" (When I say go, you must take it off!) are obviously aimed for her huge gay fans - they're pure fun! Other great moments are her song for Salvador Dalí who was her muse since 1965 - Amanda is an acclaimed painter (Unfortunately her original self-portrait wasn't used for this re-issue!), the tear-jerkin' "I Miss You", and "Rien Ne Va Plus" which is another of those great dance tracks. A hat-full of stars to Amanda for this album ..."
