5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless December 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Why this CD was so overlooked is as great a mystery to me as Lil Kim's dress sense. Lauper's return to the fray in 1989 with what is now one of her classics, the haunting I Drove All Night displayed a more mature offering from the gal who wanted to have fun. Yet this song is far from the best on the album. Written in a dark period of Cyndi's life, ANTR unleashes her vulnerabilities as well as some hidden talents which, 12 years later still astound me. From the funky Primitive to the torturous blues of My First Night Without You & then onto self-emancipation in Heading West, Cyndi's melodies were never so good, nor her voice so wrought. The tender Unconditional Love was so good that Susanna Hoffs tried to give it life later on & the album's closer, the Diane Warren penned I Don't Want To Be Your Friend is as tragic as it sounds. Lauper's voice trails off & the listener hangs on for another note. A tremendoulsy harrowing song which should have won a grammy. Lauper has never sounded so good, nor the world been so foolish as to let this album go

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Breakup CD . . . Raw Edged Emotion! September 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If art is truly a method of self-expression, fewer albums I have listened come as close to this one to revealing the emotional state of an artist. Cyndi Lauper delivers up track after track of searing emotion with a voice that can be compared to few. She demonstrates a range and quality that is truly unique. Every song reveals a different state of love as it evolves and ends, ranging from excitement to resignation. "I Drove All Night" deals with anticipation, "My First Night Without You" the first realization that a relationship is over and will never be the same, and finally, "I Don't Want to Be Your Friend" says everything you wish you could say to someone about a one-sided conclusion to a relationship.
The Ultimate Breakup Album, anyone who has ever been dumped, heartbroken, insecure over a relationship or just down right bitter can sing along to all the tracks. This album has transcended the decades and can be enjoyed by listeners today just as well as in 1989 when it was first released.

5.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THE ALBUM September 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It is apparent to me that the Greatest Album Cyndi has ever churned out has received tepid reviews; by apparent "know-it-alls" who say what to and not-to buy.

I LOVE THIS CD

In a way, I am glad that not that many people KNOW that THIS IS Cyndi's Greatest Work. To me, its like a best kept secret that only I and a handful of other Cyndi lovers can treasure.

If you are not listening, You're missing out!

This is the type of music that will still be relevant years from now. 15 years strong and going, what does that tell you?

5.0 out of 5 stars Or is that She's VERY Unusual? August 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As the decade drew to a close, Cyndi Lauper seemed more like a novelty act than anything else. Her previous album, yielded a #1 title track, a Top Five hit, and a Top 20. By the time A Night To Remember came out in 1989, the music, well--hoo boy! The music here defies categorization--it's as if she's found an undescribable sound all her own. A Night To Remember may not have sold as well as its predecessors, but the fact that two artists saw fit to cover songs from here shows the impact this album had.
Which leads me to "I Drove All Night", recently covered with a cheesy oontsa-oontsa technobeat by Celine Dion. The original boasts a strange cello-like synth and snarling punkish guitar, but the love devotion, ("this fever for you is just burning me up inside") is there enough, and any who drives all night to make love to someone dear has got to be special. Given that Tom Kelly and Bill Steinberg gave her a #1 hit, it seems she decided to utilize their services over and over, as they co-write with her or other writers throughout.
"Primitive" is one of those songs. She tries a lilting higher register in the verses and it works. When she sings "It's primitive/you got me/OH!" I'm reminded of the same rhythm in the refrain of "On the Radio" by Donna Summer. Some vibe-like keyboards pepper this song throughout.
A standout cut, the heartbreaking "My First Night Without You" has an opening bass and verse rhythm similar to "Stand By Me" before Cyndi launches into an emotional crescendo with the chorus. This attempt to leave the past behind is hampered by the protagonist's good memory. She even asks "Will I be able to sleep/will I lie in by bed and weep/What if I forget and reach for you?

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album To Remember August 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Cyndi Lauper fan for years now, but i've never really conquered listening to her full length albums--I just stayed with my "Twelve Deadly Cyns" and "Sisters of Avalon" CDS. One of my all time favorite songs of hers is "I Drove All Night" and thats what drove me to this album besides "A Night To Remember" and "Dancing With A Stranger" From the "Wanna Have Fun" Collection. So I was cruising through amazon and came across the reviews for "ANTR" and was intrigued, by a reviewer saying it was a heartbreak album. and I knew it must be good, cuz On Cyndi's sad songs, she truly has an emotional voice.
So I ordered the album: here's my review of the songs..
INTRO: See Kindred Spirit at the end.
I DROVE ALL NIGHT: my favorite song by cyndi of all time! It has such energy to it. The lyrics are sad and yet romantic. "Could Taste Your Sweet Kisses Your Arms Open Wide. This Fever For You Is Just Burning Me Up Inside."
PRIMITIVE: Kind of reminded me of the beginning of Madonna's "Like A Virgin" It's a really cool song though.
MY FIRST NIGHT WITHOUT YOU: beginning of "Stand By Me" I had higher expectations for it, but over all it's an OKAY song.
LIKE A CAT: Is a very cute, and very "Cyndi-like" song.
HEADING WEST: another favorite from the album... It's so beautiful and sad...
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER: Another beautiful sad song, about a love that never was.
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE: is a totally amazing song, probably one of the best songs Cyndi has ever written.
INSECURIOUS: IS a very cutesy song, but a very clever song.
DANCING WITH A STRANGER: a very cool dancey song to listen to, I love the lyrics as well.
