Format:Audio CD
With 1999's VAGABOND WAYS (not relased in America until 2000), Marianne Faithfull proved that, for a woman in her 50s, she could still command the same power & attention that albums like 1979's seminal BROKEN ENGLISH proved. Granted, Marianne is not the easiest artist to listen to, let alone love. Her critical look back at her past musical career & decadence is brutally honest & not often pretty. But before giving her a thumbs-down, one needs to realize how she got where she is today & when one does, they'll find Marianne to be a little more approachable & even human. What's especially amazing is that she still has a considerable amount of fans after all this time, including her fellow artists. Her newest album KISSIN' TIME is a concentration on duets & collaborations where both Marianne & the guest are on equal footing, causing both to play off each other's strengths.

It was albums like BROKEN ENGLISH that helped establish Marianne as more than just Mick Jagger's ex-girlfriend & some would also argue that she has held up better than her former lover. The big question about KISSIN' TIME would be could an old pro like Marianne work well with the younger admirers? The answer turns out to be a resounding yes!

Since 1999's MIDNITE VULTURES, Beck has been a little on the quiet side, the normally prolific Mr. Hansen taking his time with his next artistic move. But apparently, he had time to work with Marianne & gave her some of his best material, too. Songs like "Sex With Strangers" & "Like Being Born" (which may be more sinister than it sounds) are both typical of Marianne's pull-no-punches look at her past history & Beck's new-Dylan-ish stream-of-consciousness writing style.

4.0 out of 5 stars At the cutting edge of the time June 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Marianne has always been an expert at bouncing back from obscurity, as with the legendary Broken English in the early 1980s. Kissin' Time sees Faithfull still at the cutting edge of pop with assistance by Beck, Billy Corgan, Dave Stewart, Jarvis Cocker, and Blur on the title track. In her book Memories, Dreams and Reflections, a short chapter is devoted to discussing the songs and the musicians on Kissin' Time. Marianne claims that the style was very deliberately 1960s retro as if it were the follow-up to her work of that decade. Not predominantly aotobiographical, the album happily celebrates love & life with a theme of fandom permeating it.

I have always associated Marianne with other famous blondes of the 1960s like Nico and Anita Pallenberg, so it's apt that she does a tribute to the Velvet Underground chanteuse with the expert help of Dave Stewart. This era produced another Nico tribute; compare the song with the same title on the album How I Loved You by Angels of Light. But I miss the emotional resonance and authenticity of 1999's Vagabond Ways. After the opening track, the ironic Sliding Through Life On Charm with its wry & witty biographical references - a song co-written with Jarvis Cocker - is the first that held my attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rebirth of Cool March 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is what I call adult pop music.
Marianne Faithfull has seen highs and lows in life, and this record shows that she came to terms with her past. Her voice is unique, and musicians of a younger generation (Jarvis Cocker, Beck, Etienne Daho, Damon Albarn and Billy Corgan) helped her to write and orchestrate songs about emptiness ("Sex With Strangers"), the lives of Marianne Faithfull ("Sliding through Life on Charms") and Nico ("Song for Nico"), about growing ("Like Being Born") and about Love ("I'm On Fire" and "Kissin' Time").
The result is amazing: "I'm On Fire" made me cry, it is such a beautiful hymn! When she sings "...and everything will be alright", after all she's through it gives me so much hope, and it is very deep...
"Sex With Strangers"'s 80's-cool funk reminds me of "Sign Of The Times".
"Like Being Born" goes back to her folky beginnings.
"Sliding Through Life On Charm" is the main responsible for the "Explicit Lyrics"-Sticker. It strongly resembles Pulp's "Glory Days", I think I like the legend around it even better than the song itself (she tried to write that song for 20 years but couldn't find a rhyme, and one day she bumped into Jarvis Cocker and asked him to write it, he read her autobiography and delivered the lyrics, then she took another year and a half to understand them and this came out of it.)
The title-track with its voodoo-like repetetive guitar-lick and mantra-like vocals ("Your time will come again")rounds the whole thing off in a beautiful, soothing and uplifting way.
"Kissin' Time" is such an elegant way of being diverse!
My respect.
