I love Traci's breathless vocals and the fast paced techno beats.
Erica Anderson
I wish Traci had done more than just this one CD, everyone I play it for loves it.
A. White
The final track Okey Dokey is annoying and cute all at the same time.

I normally tend to stay away from the techno genre, as i find it too repetitive and boring after awhile. This cd is so different though. I loved it. The first six tracks are unbelievable! Traci's seductive whispery voice on the first track called Control is perfect for this style of music. There is such a seductive, hypnotic, dreamy quality to this song, i was hooked on first listen. The next track Fallen Angel is even better and has that same beautiful quality to it: angelic and haunting background singers and Traci's soft and sultry voice over a driving beat and even a touch of Flamenco guitar. Amazing! Both of these songs sound great in a car when you're driving down the highway. Outlaw Lover is one of the standout tracks on the cd that will have you wanting to hear it again and again. It's catchy and very cheesy, but in a fun and totally likeable way. I can totally see Mitsou or Stacey Q doing this song and having the vocals sound very similar. Good And Evil has a very German techno meets James Bond sound to it that is great. I can see why these songs would be good movie soundtrack songs. The slower songs took awhile to grow on me and lack a lot of the impact of the first six tracks, but i enjoy them very much and they don't deminish the quality of the cd at all. The song Father's Fields is a very disturbing and personal song about when she was raped by her father when she was a kid. It's not an enjoyable song to listen to, but it's one that should be heard and is an important song. The final track Okey Dokey is annoying and cute all at the same time. Personally i think the cd could have done without it, but i'm still giving this cd top marks and highly recommend it.

The only good thing to ever come out of the horrible "Mortal Kombat" movies is the killer soundtracks. One of my favorite songs from the original "Mortal Kombat" soundtack is Traci Lords' track "Control". I love Traci's breathless vocals and the fast paced techno beats. I finally got around to buying her album "1000 Fires" a week ago and I was quite surprised to find out how good the cd. The music is all written by the legendary techno act Juno Reactor including "Control". The lyrics on the other hand are something to be less than desired. I found the lyrics to be silly, and sometimes stupid like on "Okey Dokey" and "Good-n-Evil". "Okey Dokey" has to have the worst lyrics I have ever heard. The song itself has a good beat but the lyrics are awful. I was suprised to hear that not all of the cd sounds like "Control" but has a smooth, seductive trip hop feel like on "Distant Land" and "Fly". My favorite songs on the cd has to be the catchy "Fallen Angel" and "Outlaw Lover". I especially dug the infectious hooks of "Outlaw Lover" despite the silly lyrics. The album is by far from perfect but it is better than I was expecting it to be. Normally any actor who tries to become a musician usually fails miserably by my standards but Traci does a remarkably good job. Now if only she can work on her songwriting abilities.

FANASTIC! Unlike most techno albums, Lords debut goes beyond simple rave standards and packs an album full of meaningful energy and alot of feeling. It starts off with the hit single 'Control' (from the film "Mortal Kombat") and takes you into a virtual dance wonderland. The songs inculde hardcore pieces ('Good n' Evil'), soft ballads ('Distant Land'), and even campy tunes ('Okey-Dokey'). Every track is a winner, not one fails to loose your intrest. A standout piece includes 'Father's Field', an emotional account of a painful (and true) experience that happened to Lords. Her openess in this song is amazing and reveals a vunerability that isn't very common in techno. Lords has established herself as a true artist, and proven that there's more to a "Melrose Place" star than good looks. She's a Madonna for the 21st century! END

I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT THIS CD NUMEROUS TIMES AND BOUGHT IT AGAIN RECENTLY. EACH TIME I BUY IT SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO BORROW IT AND NEVER RETURN IT BECAUSE IT WAS THAT GOOD! ITS A CD THAT NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU LISTEN TO IT, YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. MY FAVORITE SONG LIKE MANY OTHERS IS "CONTROL". ITS AN EXCELLENT SONG TO WORK OUT TO! "OUTLAW LOVER", "DISTANT LAND" AND "FLY" ARE OTHER FAVORITES!

TRACI LORDS REALLY SHOWS THAT SHE IS NOT AFRAID TO EXPRESS HER FEELINGS AND SHOW OTHERS WHAT SHE HAD GONE THROUGH IN HER PAST.

I "discovered" Traci Lords through her appearance on First Wave. When I started searching the Internet, I found out that she had made tons of movies and a CD.
I finally decided that I was going to give her CD a try. I bought it as a Christmas present to myself and the first time I listened to it, I thought I would never play it again. It was so DARK! And I couldn't even RECOGNIZE her voice on some of the songs! I was in shock for a long time. But the next day, I decided to try it again. It went better that time and now I really enjoy every song except for "Good N Evil;" it is simply too dark for me.
I met her in real life at a show and her voice was so different from ANYTHING I had seen or expected, (especially in First Wave) that if I couldn't have seen her, but heard her voice, I NEVER in a MILLION years would have guessed that it was her. Now I know that people's singing voices are different and that the recorders like to play with all their little buttons, but it really just caught me off-guard. Even in "Father's Field," where she talks, her voice is her "movie" voice.
She is an incredibly multi-talented woman, and I really admire her, but if you ONLY saw her in First Wave and that's what you expect, you will be as blown away as I was. I don't know that much about her past and maybe you really should before you buy this CD. (But even THAT may not prepare you.) It really makes you wonder how much she was going through at that time, but it will make you love her all the more now that she is on top in the acting world.
Long live Traci Lords!
