Product Description

CD Columbia, CK 67954, 1997 US 11 Track

Amazon.com

As these two boys from Brisbane, Australia, know, it doesn't hurt to be endorsed by Rosie O'Donnell. When the Queen of Nice sang the words to "I Want You" and the praises of the duo behind it, the song catapulted up the charts. Largely ignored by the serious music press, Savage Garden have cultivated a vast fan base on the strength of their music--and airplay--alone. As formulaic as it may appear, the ballad "Truly Madly Deeply" was lodged at No. 1 for week after week for a reason--it's damn catchy and a welcome reprieve from overdone rock ballads. Lead singer Darren Hayes lends the same yearning vocal style to the third--and best--single from the album, "To the Moon & Back," a slice of synth-pop genius that culminates in a dramatic crescendo of strings, courtesy of coleader Daniel Jones. --Rebecca Wallwork

I didn't know what to expect from this album. I thought I would only listen to the released material. One of the catchiest songs ever written I Want You, and a beautiful ballad Truly Madly Deeply. I love every song on this album. It's one to crank up, especially when I Want You or Tears of Pearls comes on. It's catchy and unique and I can't imagine anyone hating this album, it is a lot of fun.

When I buy a c.d. there is usually at least one song I don't like. Not on this c.d. though. Darren Hayes, the lead singer, has a truly wonderful voice. He sings every song with emotion and for that the vocals are really beautiful. The multi talented Daniel Jones plays the instraments. The way he plays adds to the songs and Darren's gorgeous voice. Savage Garden write their own songs which alone demands respect. The first track "To the moon & back" tells of an outcasts search for love. It has a unique quality that makes it stand out. The seacond song "I want you" is about love with a beat. Attraction is the theme of this song. It is fun to dance to and listen to. "Truly madly deeply" is a spectacular ballad about true love. It is sung with emotion and it is definatlly a beautiful song to listen to. "Tears of Pearls" is catchy and the lyrics are stunning. "Universe" is a good love song. The words and the music compliment each other perfectly. "Carry on dancing" ,which was inspired by the vampire LeStat from Ann Rice's novels, is definatly one of the best songs on the album. It takes on a sweet and almost cinical approch to love. The words and the music create a unique mood. "Violet" has world all its own. It is indescribable and truly fun to hear. "Break me shake me" has intence lyrics and music. Rock and pop walk hand in hand for a stunning combination. "A thousand words" is an other wonderful song. The lyrics speak of rejection and heartbreak. The instraments back it up with matching emotions. "Promises" is a warning to liars. The song is great to listen to and it has good morals. "Santa Monica" has beautiful realistic lyrics.Read more ›

In 1984, the UK pop group Wham! featured its two well-kempt members on the cover of "Make it Big," the album that spawned "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and a slew of other hits to guarantee interest in the duo's continuances for years to come. George Michael, unarguably more popular, stared away from the camera, while partner in suave Andrew Ridgeley looked straight at it. Just 13 years later, Savage Garden put out its eponymous debut disc, and nearly the same pose was postured by Australians Daniel Johns and Darren Hayes, the latter eyeing the universe while the former eyed any eye to grace the black and white cover. Hayes, of course, was Savage Garden's George Michael; he was the accented lead vocalist to be remembered by face and voice as the band's heartthrob even after its demise. Johns, on the other hand, was less memorable; he and Ridgeley seemed to be mere specialists along for the ride, writing flashy hooks and danceable beats as a fallback if their partners were to lose credibility. Credibility proved not an issue for Savage Garden, as their debut sold 11 million copies (trumping the 7 million of Wham!) and yielded 3 huge hits, the prominent one being "Truly Madly Deeply," which landed the ever-impossible #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. But beyond hogging bureau space in millions of teenage rooms and dropping filler material for thousands of radio stations, "Savage Garden" is easily the best pop album of the 1990s, perfectly mixing harmony, instrumentation, percussion, sensuality, and a surprisingly effortless sense of artiness.
That artiness, perhaps the make-it-or-break-it feature absent from teen diva albums and boy band albums alike, goes far beyond the retro-cool collage work done for the CD fold-out.

Savage Garden were the underappreciated Australian stepchildren of the late nineties pop revolution. While the Backstreet Boys and NSync were building an army of screaming teenage girl fans, SG were exploring different sounds and lyrics while still staying true to the catchy pop formula. Their debut album is almost a tribute to the 80's sound developed by pioneers like Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, and Human League. But with Darren Hayes' unusual but soothing vocal style and Daniel Jones' brilliant ear for melodies, SG turned out to be more than your average boy band.
This album features many gems, including:
1) To the Moon and Back - A clever song incorporating a spaced-out, futuristic feel. Guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
2) I Want You - The "chica-Cherry cola" song. It blew me away when I first heard it. I love how the lyrics are sung at a break-neck speed.
3) Truly, Madly, Deeply - The first American number one for the boys. It is a sweet, romantic song that became a mainstay at many proms, dances, and weddings that year.
4) Tears of Pearls - Lyrically, it's one of the best songs on the album. Key changes are at just the right moments. Practically flawless.
5) Universe - SG sauces things up a little bit with this sexy ballad. With racy words and a grinding melody, this song is perfect for "extra-curricular activities."
6) Carry on Dancing - This one is really a filler track. It's not as genius as some of the other tracks, but it's still nice and catchy.
7) Violet - This one sounds like it could have been written by Prince (and I'm not just alluding to a purple reference). It's very funky with a subtle sexual quality.
8) Break Me, Shake Me - This is a rougher, more desperate track.
