Her finest work...
Ignacio Rodriguez | 02/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love Ute. I must confess it. This album, Illusions, is the one I consider her finest work. Here she combines her great, powerful and heart-felt voice,and some classic songs that won't ever be forgotten, with new, contemporary, beautiful and sometimes theatrical (this makes it better) arrangements... Usually, when someone sings pieces like 'La vie en rose' or 'Falling in love again', it's inevitable to think of Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich, but Lemper has managed to print her own mark and style in them, recreating them... Among all her recordings, this is the one to have..."
Reinvention of classic genres | UK | 02/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ute lemper is one of the finest artists of our generation. This album above all her other work is probably her greatest ever. Not only does she take on the work of two of histories inimitable 'Divas', but adresses their experiences and sentiments with a level of sincerity that takes the listner from laughter to tears in less than breath. In short Ute Lemper, with the assistance of collaborator Bruno Fontaine have reinvented a classic genre. Who would have thought that the songs could possibly sound better than when performed by the original artists? Listen to this work and reconsider."
Ute Lemper at her best
ulfar | Kopavogur Iceland | 04/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion Ute Lemper is one of the finest singers of all time. This album and her version of Kurt Weil's The Seven Deadly Sin's are her best (so far). Great stuff."
