Product Description

Lisa Stansfield ~ Lisa Stansfield

After a hiatus of several years, Lisa Stansfield released her self-titled CD, a collection of soulful musings and R&B rumblings. Heralded by many as the white queen of soul, Stansfield rises to the occasion with songs like "Never Gonna Fall," "The Real Thing," and "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up." Her smooth voice effortlessly coaxes every drop of emotion out of each song with an admirable and classy restraint. Nowhere is this more evident than in the neo-torch numbers, "I'm Leavin'" and "I Cried My Last Tear, Last Night." The album ends with the bootleg mix of her earlier hit, "People Hold On." A juggernaut of a bass line rumbles underneath, also approximated in Tori Amos's dance mix of "Professional Widow." Stansfield's voice glides over the infectious house groove, making the cut a dance floor staple. --Steve Gdula

So if you want to hear real R+B music, then go buy this album!
She has a voice so distinct and so natural, it sounds as if she is singing to you and you alone.
Gus A. Di Biasi
"Somewhere In Time" is my very favorite track on the C.D. She's great.

When I first heard Lisa Stansfield, I was in the U.S. Army, stationed in Nuernberg, Germany. I was at a German club, and the song "Around The World" came on. I became a true fan of Lisa Stansfield. She is so amazing and truly a DIVA. Commenting on another review, she requires no gimmicks. When you are true to your profession, and believe deeply in your heart, all good things will come. GOD knows Lisa heart, and she will definitely gain the recognition she deserves. All three albums are fabulous. Even though the first album will always be my favorite, the third album displays her versatility, and diversity and definitely all the soul she possesses. No one can touch Lisa because she is real with hers. She does not need hip hop stars, or rap artists to get her music out. When your music begins straying from your original platform, and does not possess your feel, but you are trying to sell records, you are a sell out. Lisa Stansfield is beautiful and a talented artist. Her voice is mesmerizing, and so sultry. I recommend all three of her albums. Her first will get the the party started, the second will assist in you realizing you are ALL WOMAN, and the third will make your man or any man want you even more. Remember..............Somewhere In Time!!!!!!!

From the seductive midtempo of the opening track, "Never Gonna Fall," to the sweaty house rhythms of the closer, "People Hold On," this project finds Lisa Stansfield in top form. She shows her love for 70's soul on two wonderful reamkes: Barry White's "Never Never Gonna Give You Up" and Phyllis Hyman's "You Know How to Love Me," which both succeed not only in being respectable to the originals but also in being unique artistic statements for Lisa. "The Real Thing" uses a familiar Lisa chord progression without sounding redundant, thanks in part to an irresistible hook and slick production. "I'm Leavin" is one of the great underrated soul ballads of recent years, and the gently brilliant "Don't Cry for Me" shows that not all straight-ahead pop is pure schmaltz. Like all Stansfield projects, the album could have been trimmed down by a couple of tracks, most notably the hip-hop lite "The Very Thought of You" and the routine ballad "Got Me Missing You." But listen to the sleazy funk of "The Line" and the acoustic revelation that is "Footsteps" and it's clear that Lisa has reached yet another artistic plateau. Sadly, this album will never get the commercial attention it deserves, but today's hard-edged divas that are selling so many records on the strength of gimmick could take a lesson from a true and unique vocal artist like Lisa. To quote track two, this is the real thing.

Easily Lisa Stansfield's BEST release. EVER!! Why this CD did not receive more attention upon its release escapes me. I just came across this disc upon seeing it marked down to a ridiculously low price in the bargain bin at a large music store in San Francisco last week. As many other listeners have noted here on Amazon, there are NO filler tracks here at all. Lisa sounds equally at ease singing her blue-eyed soul on the killer dance tracks and the slow-burn ballads. But I have to say, it is still her remake of Barry White's "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up" and Phyllis Hyman's "You Know How To Love Me" that elevate this CD to a MUST-OWN status for any R&B/Disco/Dance Fan. Her remake of Barry's dance classic easily equals the Big Black Teddy Bear's 1973 classic. The rhythmic instrumentation is a nice update of Barry's great track while still retaining its core foundation. While "You Know How To Love Me" sort of pales in comparison, Lisa still does fans of the late Phyllis Hyman proud with her soulful remake.
There are several outstanding modern tracks here besides the two '70s remakes, like "Suzanne" "Don't Cry For Me" and the surprisingly touching "Footsteps", which reminds me of a gospel tune with its deeply moving lyrics. For any Stansfield fan, Lisa does no wrong here. Her sexy, soulful voice makes every track stand out, especially her cover of the classic Seventies stuff. Sort of makes me wish Lisa would release an entire CD full of Seventies covers. Am I the only one who wishes this? I'm sure many of her fans think the same. Lisa was born 30 years too late. She should have been born to make this blue-eyed soul stuff in the Seventies alongside the likes of Phyllis Hyman, Gladys Knight, Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor.

I really wish Lisa had come out onto the music scene nowadays. Back when she did come out, her style of music was not really in the American mainstream, but now, woohoo. I know that if "All Around the World" was released as a single now it would hit the top of the charts and that all of her cds to follow would hit the number one spots on all the charts. I think that listeners as a whole are tired of singers and bands that sound all the same and are lookin for a breath of fresh air. Lisa Stansfield is exactly that. This cd showcases her singing abilities perfectly. From the powerful ballads to the blood pumping numbers, this cd is what america needs now. All of her cds are in their own way different, but Lisa remains the same on all of em. Why not give her a try and see if I am wrong america, what have you got to lose?
