Synopsis

Amazon.com
If Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual evokes memories dominated mostly by her cartoonish image, then try to get over it so you can pay attention to the music. Simply, Cyndi Lauper has a wonderful, emotive voice. Her vocals have an impish quality, but there's also tremendous strength, articulation, and nuance. Who would disagree that "Time After Time" (later covered by both Everything but the Girl and Miles Davis, if you need further proof of her credibility) is as heartstring-tugging as "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" is frivolous, or that "All Through the Night" is as longing as "She-Bop" is intense? The instrumental arrangements are quite inventive and rich, and although the musicality is pointedly '80s, the album sounds more winsome than dated. The title of Lauper's debut isn't self-deprecating or even self-parodying; it's self-congratulatory. Listen to it again, and you'll find this pleasure to be far from guilty. --Beth Bessmer

CD Reviews

Hardly any improvement to justify SACD price
Deep Thought | 01/02/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Putting the material aside, this disc is a dissapointment. If it had that "analogue" sound that just blows me away on many other SACD releases which were done better and in 5.1, (i.e. "Brothers in Arms" by Dire Straits), I'd find myself reaching for it 'time after time' for many hours of musical bliss. The singer does not come into my listening room but remains shrouded behind a digital realm. Alas, it is just ok and with not enough discernable improvement over a regular cd, especially considering the price, so it will likely spend it's life on a shelf undisturbed but for the occasional dusting. Recommended only if the artist is special to you."
