Kiki Rocks Out in the 80's

"This 1987 release is absolutely one of Kiki's very best albums. She makes a welcome return back to doing rock songs, but it also has other influences as well. Definitely a touch of alternative modern rock on songs like I'LL BUILD A TOWER OVER YOU [ with an uncredited Daryl Hall featured ], PAY, WE CRY ON, and the hard edged KNOWING YOU LIKE I DO. But that's not all as there are some superior ballads like STAY CLOSE TO YOU and ANGEL EYES - both dreamy, perfect pop ballads produced magnificently by Patrick Seymour. And Dave Stewart of Eurythmics produced ANOTHER DAY COMES [ ANOTHER DAY GOES ], an uptempo modern rock song with a gospel choir & horns! How this album missed being a hit is puzzling, but then it was never released in the US either. Finally, EMI has corrected the situation with reissuing this Kiki classic that you have got to hear. She co-wrote many of the songs, belts it out but good like she did in 1974 on I'VE GOT THE MUSIC IN ME, and comes complete with many B-sides that were only on singles from this same time period. Plus, it's affordable and an improvement over the pricey, scarce original CD isued in 1987. Any Kiki fan, and anyone who loves the best in female rock artists will love this album."
