Terence Trent D'Arby, "Introducing the Hardline According to Terrence Trent D'Arby" / 1987 Review by: Retroraider
OK. We found out he wasn't bigger than the Beatles. Nor the Rolling Stones. Wasn't really much bigger than Milli Vanilli. But the man was talented. People who don't know any better really do think he was either Milli or Vanilli, because he had the same look. Too bad for him, because when Milli Vanilli was exposed as frauds, the likeness probably hurt his career. Anyway, "Introducing the Hardline..." is a perfect example of the talent that D'Arby posessed. Better tracks include "Wishing Well" and "Dance Little Sister", both of which hit the pop charts, as well as "Sign Your Name", a memorable love song that is one of my personal all time favorites. "If You Let Me Stay" was popular in the UK as well, and is a danceable and upbeat track that fits well with the dance sounds of the time. Other songs not to be missed include the remake "Who's Lovin' You" (GREAT cover on this one!) and "Rain".
