Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Arriving as it did in 1990, before nostalgia for '70s dance music turned from irony to genuine appreciation, Lisa Stansfield's Affection was ahead of its time. Featuring up-to-date clubland rhythms percolating under sweeping string arrangements a la Barry White and classic Philly soul, Stansfield's music struck the perfect balance between looking forward and looking back. "All Around the World" was justifiably the album's smash hit, but more than a few of the other tracks--"This Is the Right Time," "Live Together," and "Poison" among them--are its equal. And it's easy to get lost in Stansfield's supple, soulful voice, which leads the way in making Affection a far more memorable affair than the usual dance trifle. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! December 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I only listen to top-notch, first rate material. I want nothing less in my music collection, absolutely no filler allowed! Lisa Stansfield's still outstanding U.S. debut is the kind of album that belongs in my library of sounds. It's one of those rare albums that manages to balance the fire and enthusiasm of a brilliant, gifted new singer, sharp, solid production and a batch of songs that still don't sound dated, even 10 years later. You all know the hits; the impeccable "All Around The World" with it's hushed spoken word intro and sweeping orchestral arrangement, "This Is The Right Time" which ushered in a new era of dance music, and fairly explodes with joyful, girlish glee. Just give it a spin and it's techno sound is just as refreshing as it was in 1990. My personal favorites have always been "The Love In Me" featuring a note perfect trumpet solo that actually lifts the song to an ecstatic crescendo and a driving beat that never lets up, "Affection" "Sincerity",& "Just The Way You Want It" the funkiest tracks on the album, and the (well deserved) Number 1 R&B hit "You Can't Deny It" are all flawless. Every one of these songs is anchored by the real star of this set, Ms. Stansfield's miraculous voice. From deep, sensual tones, to throaty, thick, sexy crooning, this woman's instrument is positively addictive. Unjustly criticized for being too 'disco' at the time of it's release, "Affection" hasn't aged a day and has my vote as one of the essential albums of the 90's. It's solid from start to finish, and again there is no filler to be found here. It re-introduced dance music to clubs, pop radio, and blew up on r&b stations worldwide as well, but never comes across as trite or overtly commercial. All modern music should be this good. A Perfect Album. Period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Soul June 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A well-crafted homage to the Philadelphia soul tradition, Lisa Stansfield's "Affection" was a refreshing change of pace in 1990. "All Around the World" and "This Is the Right Time" were international hits, yet the stellar track remains "The Love in Me" (featuring an impressive horn section). Stansfield also delivers the vocal goods with "Mighty Love," "You Can't Deny It" and "When Are You Coming Back?" This smashing debut represents her best album to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Blue-eyed Soul March 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I visited a friend in England in late 1989 he played this disc for me. I thought Lisa's voice back then was incredible. I even liked how the arrangements had a Barry White flavor to them. It was obvious who Lisa's main influence is. This disc is "tight" from top to bottom. It has stood the test of time, when I played it on New Years, I realized tracks like "You Can't Deny it", "Sincerity", and "All Around the World" can still hold their own with today's music. If there is any mention of the word DIVA it should include LISA STANSFIELD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Over a decade and Lisa's voice still resonates January 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I still remember my shock on seeing Lisa's picture on the CD cover of affection. You guessed it; the soulful voice fooled me too, as did many other black people. Put it this way, her sound is Visceral! So pure soul voice from such a small blue eyed woman at that.. still european, but that soul? You can't fake that, it is a gift.. I can't imagine what her voice would sound like on a 6.1 dolby digital surround!

Affection album is still my best and there are some truly germ pieces on the album that are not as commercial as say "All around the World". See "This is the Right Time", "When are you coming back", "What did I do to you".. Also loved the classic ballad on Real Love.. Her voice is an acquired taste and it captivates those who truly love the voice. This explains her mild success in the U.S

Affection was released around the time as Maria Carey's other album although I can't remember which of Maria's albums.. Maria has a voice too believe it or not in spite of the whoos and haaas but Lisa's voice is unique, almost with that ambience you can't quite describe..

Affection and some of her truly captivating ballads were ahead of it's time a decade ago.. I can still isolate her voice from the beats, which speaks volumes about the acoustic quality of that voice.. Do I recommend this album? Absolutely!

Format:Audio CD
Erupting on the international scene with the hit "All Around the World", Lisa Stansfield was a definite force and this album justly solidified her place in music of the 90's. Her debut album boasts three top ten hits and several tracks that were popular on the world's dance floors. It is an album the consistently delivers and has not lost the spark that it had upon its release in 1990.
While she still records and charts in her native England, Stansfield has been somewhat absent from American radio airplay.
That, unfortunately, is our loss and we are paying for it with the cookie cutter, soulless ingénues' that comprise most of contemporary pop/R & B.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great CD!!!! January 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to and own many of the Lisa Stansfield's other cd's, but "Affection" is my absolute all-time favorite of hers! I am still, to this day, blown away by Lisa's vocal skills. She is one of the best singers out there. It's a shame that she hasn't released any new material here in the states in a while, but "Affection" fills the void.
Of course, my favorite song is "All Around the World." I don't care how old the song it, it's still a great song! All of the songs on the cd, for that matter, are great! There's not one bad thing I can say about the cd.
Anyone who listens to this cd will not be disappointed. This is definitely a cd to own!!!!!
