Editorial Reviews

Laura Branigan was a singer who had numerous charting albums in the 1980's. Many of these are now long out of print. We are happy to bring these albums back to her fans. Laura Branigan was issued in 1990 & reached # 133 on the Billboard charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best came and is here to stay! April 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although not a avid fan of Ms. Branigan, I do have 5 of her albums. However, this album is by far her best. From "Never In A Million Years" to "The Best Was Yet To Come". If you like any of Ms. Branigan's music, you must have this album. Although most will remember her for "Gloria", this album is her true work of art!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites by Laura Branigan September 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After a few chart-topping albums, Laura's career started to decline by critics, but I still think her music was great. Her 1990 self-titled album is no disappointment. While the style of her music started to slighly change, the material seemed to mature. It doesn't have the same quality that Self Control does, but if you are a fan of Laura's you will find that it is still excellent. Unfortunately, none of the songs reached the top of the charts. My favorite tracks are: Moonlight on Water, Bad Attitude, Never in a Million Years, Turn the Beat Around, Unison, and No Promise, No Guarantee. I would definitely recommend this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great effort! Recommended. May 12, 2001
By NHgboy
Format:Audio CD
This is Branigan at her best and features great vocals and good production. Uptempo songs include: "Moonlight On Water", "Bad Attitude" and "Turn The Beat Around" (which is far superior to Gloria Estefan's version). Wonderful ballad, "Never In A Million Years" is heartfelt. If you like Laura Branigan, buy this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven styles of sounds make for flawed but worthy album November 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the more mellowed sounds of Touch, and with the transition period of 1989/1990, what was Laura Branigan to do? She found new producers, even self-produced some, found some new sounds, went back to her old style, and did some songs that was not worthy of her, given her talent.
"Moonlight On Water" finds her going back to the upbeat synth pop that made her a big name with her first four albums. The theme of leisure time spent with someone special being more important than a Mercedes or that big promotion is something done previously: "Instead of dreamin' 'bout all that money/we got much simpler things to do" she sings. One of the better songs here.
"Bad Attitude" is something Laura is not impressed with, preferring someone who's not a raw diamond. The chorus is a mixture of funky synths, accompanying R&B vocals and a fiery guitar. This is a newer kind of sound for Branigan.
In the keyboard ballad "Never In A Million Years" Laura's voice is still in peak form, the way she did the heartfelt cover of Alphaville's "Forever Young" on Hold Me or "Will You Still Love Me" on Self Control. Another highlight cut.
"Smoke Screen" is a mid-paced number about the defense mechanisms one uses to protect one's feelings after being burned. The synths, drum machine and backing vocals in the chorus makes this more a Taylor Dayne song, a la "I'll Be Your Shelter."
"Let Me In" sounds like something Janet Jackson or Paula Abdul would be better off doing. As for Laura, sorry, no sandwich from the picnic basket.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST WAS YET TO COME February 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This 1990 release from the talented Ms. Branigan continued the technopop success achieved in her GLORIA/SELF CONTROL days. She belts out all the tunes with her usual gusto, the quivering voice being forceful, evocative, sexy, vulnerable.
Although no hits were evinced, there are some good tracks here and one stunning performance.
Bryan Adams' THE BEST WAS YET TO COME is really beautiful, with its string synth and gorgeous choral harmonies, and Laura's emotional vocal, it's one of her best.
I really enjoy the upbeat throaty sexy MOONLIGHT ON WATER and LET ME IN and the slower NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS. Her version of the infectious TURN THE BEAT AROUND matches Vicki Sue Robinson's original disco smash and gets that foot tapping!
Laura was a true artist and will be remembered by her many fans.
