Australian-only compilation by this Alternative/Pop/Rock band from Down Under fronted by the sexy Christina Amphlett. Features 20 tracks spanning the '80s and '90s including 'I Touch Myself', 'Pleasure And Pain', 'Boys in Town', 'Science Fiction', 'Sleeping Beauty' and more. EMI.
Now most of you folk outside Australia would remember this rock band for their smash hit "I Touch Myself" and possibly one of their finest songs from their last album, 1996's Underworld, that was used on Melrose Place, "I'm Jealous". You may want to go back a little further to the early 80's when Mark, Chrissy and their band broke onto the Aussie scene sharing venues with another emerging giant, INXS.
The Divinyls quickly established themselves as a unique rock/new wave act with Chrissy's sexy and quirky and distinctive vocals and presence as rocks wild woman. She went to see ACDC and saw Angus, and after that she donned the sexy school uniform with suspenders and that became as big a trademark as he wild vocals that are just as good as Suzi Quatro, Stevie Nicks, Blondie or Chrissy Hynde, but Amphlett never got as much attention and respect as she eventually found.
I will go through the songs for those of you not too familiar with some of the bands stuff.....
As the title of my review suggests, the rock of the first song "Boys in Town" comes at you full throttle. It is a classic rock song here in Australia perhaps about Chrissy's struggle with the rock scene, which was by and large a mans world.
Next is the song "Science Fiction", which underlines Chrissy's range in her voice. She sounds as sexy as Kylie Minogue here and the little inflections she gets with her vocals add to this new wave/catchy pop song.
"Siren" is a fast paced new wave song with some nice guitar work. Mark and Chrissy take turns with the lead vocal.
"Only Lonely" was another significant hit for the band. This signalled the emergance of melodies in their music and is a good mid tempo rocker.
