Clearly, Carol Decker and company are Star Trek fans, as they took their name from the priestess in the Star Trek episode "Amok Time." Me, I heard their single "Heart And Soul" and was entranced by the dreamy new-wave/alternative pop hybrid they came up with. The smooth melodic keyboards and wall of sound makes me imagine of floating down a river. Carol's voice varies between the sultry monologue: "Something in the moonlight catches my eye/the shadow of a lover goes dancing by/looking for a little bit of love to go, so/give me love give me heart and soul" to lilting singing, of which the two are mixed together, and finally the shrill emotion in the chorus. One of my favourite songs of all time.
"I Will Be With You" is one of those wishful dreams of going back to times past. However, it's the third single (in the U.S., anyway) that rivals "Heart And Soul" in sheer silkiness. "China In Your Hand," which did better in T'Pau's native UK, opens with pizzicato strings, and this leisurely paced song coated with their usual wall of synthesizer. The chorus goes "Don't push too far/Your dreams are china in your hand/Don't wish too hard/Because they may come true." Or, as another proverb goes, "Be careful what you wish for-you may get it." The sax solo at the end is a nice touch, and the fact that there is a brief reprise of this song as the last track hints at its status as the keynote track here.
"Friends Like These" takes a critical look at tunnel-visioned friends who fall down once their dream and vision prove fallible: "But oh how the mighty all fall down/Heavy in a sea of principles." The chorus goes: "Only one dream/only one way/only one vision and thought for the day." Carol wonders if they are aware that there's more than one way to the answer.

I first saw the video for "Heart and Soul" when I had insomnia as a 17-year old -- and ran out and bought this cassette the same day. Little did I know that, good a song as it was, that it was the worst song on the album.

I recently rebought it in CD form and it's as amazing now as it was then. How T'Pau was so successful in the UK and yet a one-hit wonder in the US, I have no idea. China in Your Hand is such a well-done song, lyrically, musically, and emotionally, and the rest aren't far behind.

Now if only they'll rerelease The Promise, and actually come up with a US version of Rage, I'll be happy.

While not everyone knows of their music, everyone will appreciate it. I bought the tape when it first came out, and had to replace the tape three times. Now I'm about to go out and buy the CD version and it will probably remain in my car cd player for many weeks to come. You can never tire of the songs, and even my mother, a die-hard country fan for over 20 years, enjoys listening to their music. My husband, a die hard classic rock fan enjoys them, as well, and wants his own copy. I've had rap fans, heavy metal fans, any kind of music fan, just clamor to know who the group is. Buy it! You really won't regret it!

Having heard Heart & Soul many times I finally got around to buying T'Pau's CD. We all have bought vynil and Cds because of a great song and then were disappointed by the rest of the album; they had 1 good song and just cranked out the rest to fill up the album. Not so with this one! I first played it at my office on a little player and was impressed with the lyrics of every song. They were carefully thought out. Harmony was good and the back-up musicians were very creative. Then I took it home. I played it on my big sound system, wow! I've never rated any album with 5 stars until I heard this one. It's mixed perfectly and someone was thinking while they wrote because there's so much depth. Musical routines, sub-routines, sub-sub-routines. The album explores many emotions of Carol Decker the lead singer and Ron Rogers the guitarist. This is one time I got more than my money's worth. It would make a great gift for someone special.

I can still remember picking up this album in 1987 because I loved "Heart and Soul" the first time I ever heard it. Since then, it's been a permanent part of my CD collection (if increasingly more difficult to find). The only reason I don't give it five stars is because I'm not crazy about "Friends Like These"--it annoys me. But the rest of the album is terrific, particularly "Monkey House," possibly the greatest speeding song of all time! A friend of mine described T'Pau as "Kate Bush meets Def Leppard." I describe T'Pau as one of the bright spots in the musical wasteland that was the late 1980's.

I LOST MY COLLECTION OF ABOUT 500 CDs A FEW YEARS AGO DURING A MOVE FROM GERMANY TO THE STATES. I HAVE REPLACED ABOUT 150 OF THEM. THIS ALBUM T'PAU, WAS IN THE TOP 20 OF THE ONES I CHOSE TO REPLACE. IT IS AN EXCELLENT COLLECTION OF SONGS THAT PLACE YOU IN A VERY RELAXED AND SOULFUL MOOD. AT LEAST THATS HOW I DESCRIBE IT.

This is without a doubt one of the best CDs made. There are so many catchy songs that I'm surprised Heart and Soul was the only hit for T'Pau in the US. Sex Talk, You Give Up, and definitely Bridge of Spies should have made it to the top of the charts. It's been in my CD player for almost a month now and I never get sick of listening to it. Worth the money.
