5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation of Cathy Music! February 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Finally got this one after a lot of debating whether or not it would be worth it. Well, I'm not sorry I bought it! As a matter of fact, the compilation is a lot better than expected on account of the different version of "Touch me (all night long) and the slightly dancier sounding "Move to This".

When I first heard of Cathy Dennis back in the 1990, my immediate reaction was "Who is that?" I couldn't believe her voice...and couldn't wait to see the face that went with the voice. As soon as i heard "Touch me...", I was sold!

Hmmmmm...it seems they knew exactly what they were doing when they put on the UK single version of "Touch Me (all night long)" on this compilation. I think it's the perfect way to start a "Greatest Hits" cd. My sensitive ears caught this different version right away. LOL

The first time I played this CD compilation, "Irresistable", I fell in love with Cathy all over again. Too bad she's not recording anymore. :( I must add...the first time i heard "Touch me..." was in Montreal city on a late summer evening, blaring out of a dance club in the gay district.

And i admit I was hooked on her right away! Unfortunately, I ended up buying "Move to this" at a very high price in the high "double-digits". But it was worth it, because I supported an underrated and underappreciated pop star.

And it's a shame because she really deserved to be more famous, as mentioned in a recent review on here.
Yes...she did it all and she did it perfectly! I honestly admit that the songs on the 2nd half of "Irresistable" aren't as great as her earlier material, but she still had the voice, as cute as ever!

I love it when an artist writes her/his own music and can make it big in the music industry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Irresistable July 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cathy Dennis entered the music scene more than a decade ago as vocalist for the dance outfit DMOB. After two dance-oriented projects, she seemingly disappeared from sight. This compilation is essential for any Dennis fan, containing music from those two albums, as well as her detour into retro-styled pop with AM I THE KIND OF GIRL?, which wasn't released here in the states. Among the highlights, her hits 'Just Another Dream', 'You Lied To Me', and 'Touch Me(All Night Long)', as well as her best ballad performance, 'Too Many Walls'. The other ballads are fairly disposable and not very memorable, and among the great songs on her aforementioned third album, check out 'When Dreams Turn To Dust', and the cleverly biting 'The Date'. A good reminder of why Dennis, at her best, was pretty addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect title February 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ah, Cathy Dennis, we hardly knew ya...

And it's a shame because she really deserved to be more famous. She did it all: wrote 'em, sang 'em, produced 'em. And this disc is the cream of the crop.

Six songs are from her irresistible (sorry!) debut 'Move To This', five from the OK 'Into the Skyline', and seven from one of the great lost pop albums of the 90s 'Am I the Kinda Girl'.

Cathy's songs are dance and pop gems. They stay in your head long after you're done listening... which makes sense because this is the same woman who wrote Kylie Minogue's worldwide monster hit "Can't Get You Out of My Head" (she also wrote Britney's "Toxic").

Cathy's debut, 'Move to This', is dance happy, kicking off with the one-two punch of the brilliant "Just Another Dream" and "Touch Me". She also slows things down with the seductive "Tell Me" and the reflective "Too Many Walls". Overall a solid first album.

Her second, 'Into the Skyline' has always seemed to me to be cold. I think this may have had to do with her teaming up with Shep Pettibone to produce. There's a distance to these songs, but "Irresistible" really connects.

And then... ah, her third, and sadly, last album, 'Am I the Kinda Girl'. This was such an unexpected departure from her two previous dance albums: it was straight up POP. The title track has one of the great guitar riffs EVER, as Ms. Dennis plays her gender bending games. And it contains one of my favorite lines, "Am I the kinda screw that your toolbox lacks?" Mercy! Other standouts are the charging "That is Why You Love Me", and her gorgeous cover of the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset" (Ray Davies even co-wrote a song with Cathy, "The Date", which is on this collection).

4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of Cathy hits (and misses)! March 21, 2001
By Canada
Format:Audio CD
'The Irresistible Cathy Dennis' is a perfect showcase for one of the 90's most underrated pop songwriters. Best of all, if you're a Dennis fan, many of the singles on 'Irresisitible' are rare 7" radio edits. Of course, singles from her early D-Mob days are missing, but that just means you'll have to collect them yourself :) For new fans: If you remember "Touch Me (All Night Long)", her biggest worldwide hit, you're bound to fall in love with nearly every track here. Lyrically simple, but highly melodic, this is essential pop.
