Product Description

2008 starts with multi-platinum recording artist Taylor Dayne releasing her first studio album in almost 10 years on her own Intention Music label. "The title is very tongue-in-cheek," she admits, taking its name from her cover of U.K. blue-eyed soul sensation Lewis Taylor's song of the same name. "There are all kinds of love on this album: unrequited, damaged, broken, hurtful, heart filled. It's all about asking yourself, `Are you sure this is where you want to be? Are you happy with the choices you've made?' Top-name producer/writers on Satisfied include Mike Mangini (Baha Men), Peter Wade (Jennifer Lopez), and the New Radicals' Gregg Alexander & Rick Nowels (Madonna), among others. On the cd are marvelously Soulful covers of the Red Hot Chili Peppers -'Under the Bridge', the Rolling Stones- 'Fool to Cry' and Des'ree's -'Kissing You'. 13 tracks. Adrenaline Music. 2008

You've got to hand it to Taylor Dayne. For all the gruel she's foisted on the pop music market, her return to recording after an eight-year hiatus passes muster. Dayne is nothing if not consistent. She may have almost as many "hits" compilations as she has studio albums, but each offering packs a few exhilarating surprises. The first of those in question is the calypso-fueled "She Don't Love You." An easy-going mixed chorus perfectly evinces the lyrical snarl implied in the title, while the drum kit and auxiliary percussion riff the message through with tropical abandon. And how has it taken so long for a woman to cover Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge," never mind giving the song the blaring horn section it should have had the first time around? After a title track that sounds tailor-made for any dentist's lobby, the schmaltzy "Dedicated" finds Dayne braying forgettable promises about love, and it's not for a few tracks that things pick up again. "Crash" brings back the brass, which always meets Dayne's near-rasp with a kindred texture that elevates both. In all, fans will find plenty to pluck here, for both the dance floor and the headphones. Satisfied, indeed. --Jason Kirk

If you are a fan of the club scene, then you know that Taylor Dayne has not completely abandoned recording new music. In fact, she has had several top 5 dance hits over the past decade. However, this is her first new studio set since 1998's tremendous "Naked Without You." Here is a little fact about Taylor Dayne: she has gotten progressively better with each album release. Her artistic breakthrough came with 1993's "Soul Dancing," which followed two multi-platinum smash albums, 1990's "Can't Fight Fate" and 1987's "Tell it to My Heart." So now some 20 years since her first single, Dayne returns full force to the scene with a set of catchy, stunningly soulful dance numbers and ballads. Dayne can sing flawlessly (Anastacia and Joss Stone have borrowed heavily from her vocal style over the years) and with passion. She has performed on Broadway, and has garnered honors from artists including Elton John himself, so there never has been a question as to how much talent she has. She has only produced 5 studio albums in 20 years, though, and much like fellow 80's starlets Paula Abdul and Cyndi Lauper, there has not been enough new material released to gauge whether or not she could once again become a relevant artist in today's music market. One listen to this disc proves that Taylor Dayne is still relevant and then some. There is not a bad track on here, although this record does not have the same glitzy kick of her late 80's dance-pop. That has been stripped away and in its place are sonic layers of vocal harmonies, new bass heavy beats, and much more soulful, heartfelt singing. This album is more of a re-assurance than it is a comeback, because any fan of this dynamic diva knows that she is, and always has been, a vocal powerhouse with passion in every note she sings.

Taylor Dayne's new album "Satisfied" is great. Great variety of musical styles combined in to one great listenable album. Every song is great. Maybe she won't return to her once platinum status but "Satisified" defiantely satisfies the listener from beginning to end. My favorite song is the cover of Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Under The Bridge." She sounds amazing as always. I remain a Taylor Dayne fan for life! Great job Leslie! (Her real name)

This is a much anticipated CD focusing on a modern day Taylor Dayne showcasing her powerful vocals. Although she is known for her dance songs in the 90s, this CD has everything from new dance tunes (Beautiful, I'm Over My Head etc.) to newer sounds with "She Don't Love You", "Crash" and includes a fabulous cover of "Fool to Cry".
After ten years let's all support her talent, creativity and new music by purchasing this CD. Welcome Back Taylor Dayne. I hope she wins the awards she deserves with this CD.

This new album from Taylor Dayne has been a long time coming. A few shining dance hits over the years - and the brilliant live album - have helped to pass the time but this is what I've been waiting for and it was a total joy to open it up and put it on. Better than "Naked without you", this is a one-listen win; a well created project that shines with integrity, perfection and passion.
The first 3 tracks - and future hits - are 100% pop dynamite. Lead single "Beautiful" is light and breezy and catchy as hell. The Billy Steinberg/Josh Alexander written + Richie Jones produced "I'm over my head" reminds me of her 80s hits; power pop with a power vocal. Track 3 is my favourite - the Gregg Alexander/Rick Nowels written "My heart can't change". It's another, easy-breezy contemporary pop number with a chorus that you can't help but chant along to. I love it!
It took a few days but after repeated listens, the Island reggae "She don't love you" has grown on me. As with all the songs on the album, Taylor Dayne wins you over with her vocal skills. The cover versions are top notch but only because Dayne sings her heart out. It's almost like she could sing absolutely anything and make it sound good! I like her soulful take on "Under the bridge" and her sweet, soothing version of Des'Ree's classic "Kissing you" but the best cover is right at the end: "Fool to cry" is grand and gorgeous with a wonderful relaxed and bluesy vocal.
Title track "Satisfied" is a sexy, soulful ballad with a great message - sung from the point of view of a woman who has been left satisfied and in love by a man who has just left her.
"Crash" has had a lot of fans talking. It's a great power-ballad with a 60s sounding backdrop that grabs you by the heart and squeezes you tight.

Ha, you thought I was going to say you'd be more than SATISFIED didn't you!?

I'm on my 3rd listen through the CD, and each song keeps growing on me more and more. Surprisingly, this album is very heavily focused on ballads and slow to mid-tempo songs. I would have liked a little bit of the Taylor spunk that can be found on her other albums (hence 4 not 5 stars), but let me get to the songs themselves...

1) Beautiful - when I first heard this song, I wasn't blown away. But now, I can't get enough of it. So catchy and fun. ****
2) I'm Over My Head - same as above. I wasn't crazy about this song my first listen. Now I'm chair-dancing and singing along. ****
3) My Heart Can't Change - Unlike the songs above, I loved this song from the moment I heard it. One of the best new songs I've heard in a long time. Mid-tempo pop song w/ yet another catchy chorus (that makes 3 for 3 so far!) *****
4) She Don't Love You - ok, even upon repeated listens... I could do w/o this song. It's not terrible, just not my kinda song. **
5) Under The Bridge - When I heard this was going to be on this album, I was thinking, you've GOT to be kidding me. But wow, she kills it! Excellent cover. I'd be curious what the RHCP's think about it. ****
6) Satisfied - First listen, I was thinking, what's this about? 2nd listen on, it's all love. Slower tempo song of regret and longing. Moving. ****
7) Dedicated - the 2nd song I'm not crazy about. Like She Dont' Love You, a reggae-ish beat. Yet this one almost has a 50's sound to it too... I don't think it knows what it is. **
8) Kissing You - I was not excited to hear this song would be on the album. Desree just owns this song and I couldn't imagine anyone else singing it. Taylor gives it a much different feel.
