Lene's last 80's effort.....

"Having bought her recent BEST OF this fall,(she and her band
were very under-appreciated!)Many wild really cool songs stylings. I checked this one
out(MARCH) and its not bad. Lots of her trademark vocals diving and swooping here
and there. The production is somewhat different from her earlier
80's work, lots of influences going on,her dreamscape songs
can be dark, I hear the crisp production the CARS gave us, I even hear some Ian McColloch, traces of NEW ORDER some 80's overblown rock guitars(but it works for the most part on these
tunes) but its Lene's vision that moves these songs, some are
better than others but as a whole not bad. Some might find these
dated and lost in the 80's but that period had some of the most
interesting music I've heard over the past 30 years."
A few great songs

"March has a few great songs and the rest fall flat!!! Wonderland of course is very good as well a Rage and Life but it becomes dated to say the least. For die hard Lovich fans it is a must have though."
Is Good If You Love the Lovich...And We Do, Don't We?

"It's funny, but in listening to March I've pretty much run the gamut of all the previous reviews, beginning with the less-favorable ones. When I first put this on, I thought it was awful. I had just come from Flex...Plus and Stateless...Plus which are both masterpieces and had never heard March when it first came out in 1989. Yet the Lovich-Chappell team are intact and as responsible for March as the previous albums so what you find is that after first dismissing the stuff as nowhere near Flex or Stateless you suddenly find yourself listening through and suddenly finding gems like "Life" and "Wonderland" and then gradually discovering "Make Believe" and "Vertigo" and the extended remix of "Wonderland" and so on. Then you realize "Dah-yum" this whole album's pretty good!!! And it is. Thing is that it does reflect very much a thick '80's disco sensibility as opposed to the earlier sparseness of Lovich's work. So it kind of reflects the defects of its late-'80s era, which lie in overproduction. But it is still fun, upbeat and it retains the most important thing about Lovich's lyrics: her seminal message of creativity and optimism. If you are fan of Lovich (and would you actually be reading this if you weren't???) then the CD is definitely a must-have. After all, a so-so Lovich is pretty much worth any first rate work by anybody else. Not every album can be a masterpiece, and this one isn't in relation to the grand achievements of the earlier Lovich-Chappel collaborations, but it is a great listen."
