The Soul Of Dave Stewart.

"Interestingly, ... has this cd listed under David A. Stewart and his other three solo cds under Dave Stewart. That aside, Dave's third solo effort, 1994's "Greetings From The Gutter" is a mishmash of r&b, psychedelica with some electronics thrown in. This cd departed from his first two solo efforts in that "Greetings From The Gutter" is more r&b influenced than the two former releases. This pays off on songs like "Jealousy", "Heart Of Stone" and "Greetings From The Gutter" and fails with "Chelsea Lovers". This cd is a mixed affair and it does take repeated listenings to begin to appreciate what Dave was striving for here. The most memorable song, other than "Jealousy", has to be "Oh No, Not You Again", the closing song on the cd. Here, Carly Simon and David Sanborn have a mock-lover's spat that's really humorous in a dark and twisted way. This cd is certainly worth owning if you are a fan of Dave or the Eurythmics."
Its a groovy CD!

"Music is good with energetic sound. Forget final cut-bad choice! Dave continues Eurythmic's type music, along lines of what could have been, had the group continued."
Jealousy ain't no part of me....

"Dave Stewart (Ex- Eurythmics) with his
first solo- album. The album starts with
the single "Heart of stone", goes on with
"Greetings from the gutter", "Crazy sister",
"Chelsea Lovers", "Jealousy" (second single
with Isabella Rosselini), "St. Valentine's Day",
"Kinky Sweetheart", "Damien save me" (with his
wife Siobhan Fahey; Ex- Shakespears Sister),
"Tragedy Street", "You talk a lot" and
"Oh No, Not You Again". These eleven pieces
show an individual style, nice lyrics, good sound
between guitar- rock, pop and synthi- sounds."
