"Bardeux made two good albums in 1988 and 1989, then later vanished to oblivion. But this first album was a smartly done album of dance music. I liked Magic Carpet Ride and several dance numbers. But one song, which was a top 20 hit in spring 1988 is one that I still talk about. It's When We Kiss as Bardeux raps on this song over sparse Casio-like keyboards. To me, it's like the female answer to LL Cool J's '87 song I Need Love, the first rap ballad to be a major hit. It's done in nearly the same kind of romantic style of LL, but with a female touch. It still sounds sexy and seductive and I hope that it ends up on some future '80s compilation CDs. Maybe when the second half of the '80s turns 25 years old, it will turn up on them. This song is really the true testament of that duo's short lived run in music. And if they're reading this, it was one of the best songs to come out of the '80s. People call short lived artists one hit wonders, and I detest that, but Bardeux should be credited for doing their thing and getting their music out there to the masses."
A great debut album that sounds better every time

"I was living in CA when the Bardeux debut album was released; what a breath of fresh air every time I put it in the cd player. With at least 5 singles that were released, you couldnt help but sing, put the top down and cruise the coastline, and 'dance in the wind' with Acacia and Jazz. 'Magic carpet ride' was a fabulous debut single and is a great introduction to the ladies. 'When we kiss' was a smash and perhaps the best song on the album. Im taken to a new place every time I hear that horn and those keys coupled with A and Js vocals. Each song on this album has its own identity there is no filler here either, any song would have made a great single release. 'Caution' was never released as a single and is one romantic little song, one of my favorites. 'Three time lover' stands out with the lower register vocals and A and J handle it very well. 12" singles abound, videos on MTV2 (only 2 if you can find them) I saw them perform at least 5 times in the Bay Area; they were warm, engaging, appreciative of fans, took pictures and signed autographs till there was noone left to sign for ..I wish they could have stayed together for a 2nd release. I dont know where Acacia and Jazz are today, but rest assured they gave me some of the best times and memories of my life .."
