CD Reviews

The Scintillating Pleasure Principle of Vanessa Daou
L. S. Slaughter | Chapel Hill, NC | 09/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Whereas ZIPLESS, her debut masterpiece, churned about in the steamy juncture of sex and intellect, SLOW TO BURN - an astonishing follow-up - gravitates more towards the heart. But dont be misled into thinking that neither sex nor intellect have been abandoned. In fact, the sense of 'confessional' seems to heighten the presence of both. Vanessa has penned the lyrics this round (ZIPLESS' lyrics were sizzling adaptations of Erica Jong's poetry), with poignant phrases like "Red ball in a yellow sky/ I'll follow you til the day I die" hanging in memory from the first spin of this amazing, affecting disc.Once again, hubby Peter Daou, possibly one of more underrated arranger and producer talents on today's scene, crafts Vanessa's songs into neo-trip hop mini-movies, augumented with just enough funk and jazz to keep the proceeding danceable, but never mindless or without the capacity to evoke reflection, and sometimes, even tears....it's worth it, and sears the digits off any Sade album (talented as she is, I find many of her tunes morose redundant for more than listening to 3 cuts in a row). Vanessa will take you through the entire gamut of humam emotion, but she never lets you wallow in pathos or sentimentality. SLOW TO BURN is like that great fantasy you have of Mr or Mrs Right coming to life close to you in the most exciting scene imagined, and the intimacy and love are overwhelming."
Deep sensuality - Venessa style
Steve Bradford | Frederick, Maryland USA | 10/07/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Venessa and Peter Daou make no mystery of it, they are sensual. Their 1996 'Slow to Burn' is a testement to their wicked style of sex and sensuality into one CD. Deep lyrics of combustiable romance and the never-ending desire of fulillment blends into smooth beats and catchy songs in this CD. Venessa Daou's voice is so sensual, it may make you beg for more. I love her whispery singing and relaxed style of exposing herself in her songs.

A very good buy!"
Ethereal and haunting

"Vanessa's breathy voice does it once again in this mello-smoothe album. The album gets better as you listen to it. Her voice, lyrics and sound all fuse together to make the perfect combination. If you are looking for an album to put you in the mood, or just to chill out after a long day, this is the one."
