"Going through my very large CD collection.. I came across this gem.. that still sounds great as it did nine years ago.. Lisa Fischer backup singer for Luther Vandross for years .. Step out and delivered a breathtaking effort.. This young lady had a very bright future dont know what happen.. At time of this release workin with some of the top producers in music Narada Michael Walden, Luther Vandross Attala Zane Giles.. Arif Mardin.. they gave her the best possible material they could come up with .. her voice soars over some of the most compelling tracks ..Fav..TracksHow Can I Ease The PainWildFlower- a knockout remakeSo Intenseyou know what? let just say the whole thing.. If you slept on this album the first time around dont sleep this time .."
"so intense" is an understatement.

"lisa fischer, former back-up singer of luther vandross, was the "discovery" of 1991. her debut album, _so intense_, lived up to its title in every respect. fischer delivers power-packed vocals on such songs as "save me" and "send the message of love". songs like "get back to love" and "some girls" take a more mellow path, but fischer's exceptional delivery make them some of the best songs of 1991. "how can i ease the pain"-cowritten by fischer and narada michael walden-is an excellent example of a perfect song; lyrically strong and vocally challenging, fischer soars over high notes with unparalleled ease. similarly, fischer's rendition of "wildflower" expresses an insight into the pain of childhood that artists such as cheryl "pepsii" riley ("stephanie") and mikki howard ("at seventeen") have since endeavored to recreate. perhaps the only thing lacking with _so intense_ is a follow-up. since her appearance seven years ago, fans have been denied her wonderful gifts, save a handfull of special appearances and background gigs. lisa, where are you? we miss you!"

"Lisa Fischer has one of the most amazing voices in music. It is a down rigt shame that she does not have more releases out there. Her voice is so beautiful and so unique that you'd think she'd be an international phenom. One listen here and you'll think so too. Let's dicuss the voice. It is such an instrument in its own right. She has the scorching power of Patti LaBelle, the glass shattering range of Mariah, the crystal clarity of Roberta Flack, the rich velvety warmth of Whitney YET, Lisa is her own singer, her own artist. Check out the Grammy award winning "How Can I Ease the Pain?" If you're standing, you'll have to sit down. It is one of the most emotional songs I've ever heard. It gives me such chills. Check out "Save Me"...a slammin dance masterpiece. Then you have the R&B mid tempos numbers like "So Intense" and "Some Girls" They're so airy and beautiful. They're unheard classics. "Wildflower" is just pure art with a spoken intro and a building vocal that soars to no end!! Then there's the unique ballad "Last Goodbye" It is hauntingly beautiful. Lisa sings with all her heart. The sound just booms out of her. Her range is amazing. Her upper octaves are so clear and full, unlike that of Mariah. Her delicate soft voice is heavenly. This album is for fans of truly gifted vocalists. It's a must have. I wish Lisa will grace us with a new collection soon!! It's been too long!!"
