I was sure Make It Last Forever would be the soaring ballad I'm looking for :oi:

That must be Sleazy

The little girl voice on Give You My Love :bad:

The power vocal is otherwise taking this to new found places of ecstasy :disco:

I might be CRAZY but somehow Make It Last Forever (in the verses) is giving me FUTURE NOSTALGIA :disco:

and then the chorus is pure All Around The World. Which somehow feels a bit bizarre but also quite FUN!

Incidentally, 7 of the 13 tracks on this album have titles and lyrical themes centered around TIME - which leads me to conclude that this was, indeed, a concept album. What would happen if one made an album in 2003 and released it four years later?

Somebody had to find out, thank god Lisa had the artistic BALLS to just GO FOR IT :disco:

The expensive thundererous disco production is making me assume this album cost a lot to make.

So I have TWO physical copies of this album, one from South Africa and one from Belgium. :D

Here's where she signed them...

It's weird, the production oscillates between sounding quite expensive and then randomly cheap. Like good producers giving away not always great songs.

Sleazy is such a class attempt at a Love Affair.

It's a mishmash of about three different album sessions, the ones which sound expensive are the Unleashed ones. Then there were some extra ones. The last 3 songs are from the time of Electric when she went GUITAR POP.

oh my good god her vocal on I'll Wait For You :D she's SO off key! what a laboured song, jesus. It's pure 1998 (but unreleased, for a reason)

It’s odd she went Guitar Pop during the Electric “era”.

I’ll wait for you really is a bad Geru ballad.

There are two different versions of I'll Wait For You. This one on the album has her singing the chorus in a lower register. The one on the sampler is a different key.

There's some other tracks which didn;t make the album, if I pull together a quick Youtube playlist would we be up for it after this?
