Title Track
jvickers@gtemail.net | Walden, New York USA | 12/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The album is pretty good. I admit that I do not love all the songs on this album, but it is well worth purchasing just to get the song "Velveteen". This is one of those songs that just seem to mesmerize. Wendy James sings the song with one of the male band members. It is an erotic song with a powerful tempo. I waited for this album for at least a month. It was worth the wait."

"Vamp gets my vote as Most Under-rated Band of All Time. This is NOT "disposable pop" -- it's brilliantly orchestrated, superbly produced psychedelic rock.Wendy James gets all the attention, and her seductive vocals certainly do stand out... but the real hero is songwriter NC Sayer. The opening cut "Baby I Don't Care" rocks with the best of them. "Falling for a Goldmine" and "Bad Valentine" are hauntingly lilting, quite unlike anything else. And the title cut "Velveteen" is a sweeping, mind-blowing rock opera.Oh, heck... call it "pop" if you must, but listen to it with an open mind. Preferably on headphones, late at night. Real loud."
