Editorial Reviews

Kissing The Pink was part of the U.K. new wave rock scene of the early 1980s. In 1983 they came out with the album "Naked" and the EP "Kissing The Pink". We have combined them together on one CD. Fans have been screamin' for this to come out, they will be ecstatic to find both on one superlative package.

Poetic, operatic and uniquely surreal are the adjectives that come to mind when one asks, "...tell us of Kissing the Pink..." The album "Naked" is especially sought after, since it had never been released in the US on CD and the vinyl LP's are beginning to show the ravages of time. All in all, a masterpiece as magnificent as this has been well worth the wait. A rare gem for any 80's New Wave aficionado, if your collection lacks this work, you may need to re-evaluate your viability as a human being.

I'm not a follower of pop music much these days but I have a soft spot for some of the pop music of the 1980s, especially from the UK. For inventiveness and musicality I place this record very high on the list of best albums of that vintage.

It has superb musicianship, with a big range of instrumentation - six players using standard rock instruments plus violin, dual keyboards and saxophone. Furthermore, there are interesting vocal ranges, with Josephine Wells' crystal vocals overlaid often over the steadier vocals of the five males.

The lyrics are very interesting, often having surreal and political imagery, not your usual love songs and laments. Tracks like "The Last Film" (I ever saw) demonstrate Wells' vocal talents, while "Big Man Restless" and "In Awe of Industry" indicate the subject range of this dynamic album.

There are lots of interestings sounds and rhythms here, and the total effect is like an all-you-can-eat smorgasboard. It bops and soars and funks, sometimes all in the same track. To my jaded ears and cynical tastes this one is still outstanding.

This CD is OK. I mean, the Kissing the Pink "Naked" album is one of the greatest pieces of music ever created. Is it nice to have on CD... hell yes!! The extra stuff, terribly repetitive and not representative of their best. Where is "Water in my Eye" and all the great extended versions? Still, I can give this recording no less than five stars.

Perhaps I'm the biggest Kissing the Pink fan around? Well, I have two copies of "Naked" on vinyl (didn't want to wear it out) and many 12" EPs. I have continued to follow them into KTP, but nothing compares with the genius of "Naked".

The music is so pure, so different... even today. The phenomenal vocals on "All for You", the incredible keyboards and saxophone. This album never, ever fails to bring a tear to my eye.

I thank the stars that made me pick up the pink "Mr. Blunt" 12" EP backed with "Water in my Eye" and the video of "Maybe This Day" that tuned me into this incredible talent.

Remember "The Last Film (Hymn Version)" droning on until the needle ran out of vinyl? Again, genius.

If there were only ONE piece of music I could take with me to a desert island.... this would be it (well, a collection of Kissing the Pink, if I could get away with it).

Bless the incredible artists who found each other and created a timeless recording that never fails to move me.

The Naked Album was the high point for Kissing The Pink, they opitomise all that was good about 80's pop. The experimentation with beats and sounds and the lush use of electronics makes this unique album a very satisfying listen. Finding it on CD was fabulous as my vinyl version was very tired.

When this album was first released it became one of my current favorites. KTP's ability to blend so many different musical styles on one release is amazing. The fact that each song is a gem on it's own is nothing short of miraculous. This album could easily rank in my top 10. Inventive and innovative writing. Wonderful melodies. Powerful vocal performances. Absolutely a "must have" for fans of 80's music or anyone who enjoys creative musicianship.
