"I think this is Marianne Faithfull's most accessible and cohesive album from the 80s, a collection of strong songs most of which could have been hits. Sweetheart, Easy In The City, Tenderness and Truth Bitter Truth are examples of the magic between her and Barry Reynolds, while Intrigue (written by Ben Brierly) and For Beautie's Sake (Co-written by Steve Winwood) are eqully compelling. She sings with genuine feeling, the playing is tight and the themes of the songs are valid and universal. I rate this album on a par with her latest, Vagabond Ways, based on the quality of the songs and the heartfelt delivery."

"During her 1980's comeback into the 'upwardly cool of rock circles,' Marianne Faithfull has once again put her life into song with 'Dangerous Acquaintances.' My favorites on this release are 'Intrigue' and 'Truth, Bitter Truth.' Both songs show a deep reflection of her take on relationships and told in a way only Ms. Faithfull can convey. The whole CD is a 'this is what's been going on with me' letter as told by a woman who stands as a testament to strength of character and firmness of purpose. The strength of 'Dangerous Acquaintances' is in the lyrics...although some of the music could have been done differently...but it was the 80's. This is a 'must have' for any serious collector."
I have been looking for this CD for the longest time.

"I bought this album by faithful back in 1980 and the cassette is starting to wear out and I been searching for a CD version of the album. If I've been able to keep the cassette for almost 20 years and have listened to it many, many, many times, I think speaks volumes for the quality of the music. I will be the happiest human being once I am able to place a positive order."
