CD Reviews

Cathy IS The Kinda Girl For Me
Alan Caylow | USA | 05/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cathy Dennis' third---but hopefully not final---album, 1996's "Am I The Kinda Girl?", finds Cathy stepping away from drum machines & disco beats and embracing pop music with more emphasis on guitars and real drums. Fans of her first pair of albums needn't worry, 'cause the end result works magnificently. Once again, Cathy demonstrates that she is the definitive pop star who can do it all: write, sing, play, produce, AND look gorgeous. Co-producing with Mark Saunders, Cathy delivers another brilliant pop disc. No bad songs anywhere: "West End Pad" and "Fickle" are great fun, "When Dreams Turn To Dust" and "Stupid Fool" are both beautiful songs, the title song is a fun pop-rocker that Cathy co-wrote with XTC's Andy Partridge, and "Homing The Rocket" is delicious pop. But wait, there's more! "That Is Why You Love Me" and Don't Take My Heaven" are both breezy numbers, Cathy sings a marvelous cover of the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset," and then, there's the appealing popper, "The Date," co-written with none other than Kinks leader Ray Davies himself. Finally, Cathy closes the album with the lovely light acoustic pop of "Crazy Ones." And all the while, Cathy's voice...aaaah...pure heaven (and the photos of Cathy inside the CD!).To date, Cathy Dennis has not recorded an album since "Am I The Kinda Girl?". That was eight years ago. These days, Cathy seems to be perfectly content writing songs for other artists. But I hope & pray that Cathy will one day return to recording herself. I hate to sound like a broken record, but as I've said in my reviews of her other records, Cathy Dennis is the Queen Of Pop. It's nice that she's writing for other artists, but she really should be writing for herself again. Cathy, I love you, and I miss you. Please come back to making albums! In the meantime, "Am I The Kinda Girl?" is a brilliant album for Cathy to close out the first chapter of her recording career with, and I eagerly await for her return. :-)"
The best album ever!!

"I bought this album on sale in a British record store, remembering I wanted a few years earlier mainly because I liked the singles (West End Pad, Waterloo Sunset and When Dreams Turn to Dust). I knew I would like it but I had no idea it would become my favourite CD. Am I The Kinda of Girl is immensly satisfying and every song is a classic. The album consist of Guitar pop tunes that grow on you so much you find yourself listening to this at every available oppertunity, and why shouldn't you. Brilliance!!!"
Perhaps a little ahead of its time.

"This is pure pop at its best. Cathy Dennis moves away from the dance beats of her previous efforts with this sublime fusion of 60's and 90's pop. It's just that it may have been released too early, 1995. It would have been more perfectly timed with the Bacharach renaissance of the late 90's and the Austin Powers era.Dennis' voice is perfectly suited here. While it sounded rather thin against the over-the-top production of her dancier days it melds perfectly with the production here. There are a few misses but the album is extremely catchy and is a perfect windows down/top down driving album. Enjoy!"
