Format:Audio CD
In the 1980s, it seemed that any band that came from England was all about synthesizers and soulless music. Simply Red turned out to be the exception to that rule. Thanks to leader Mick Hucknall's love of old-school soul, Simply Red turned out to be one of the most organic pop bands to come out of the U.K. After #1 hits with "Holding Back The Years" and a cover of Harold Melvin's "If You Don't Know Me By Now", Simply Red seemed guaranteed to carry on their winning streak into the 1990s. Unfortunately, just as it seemed the Red had finally learned how to make convincing blue-eyed soul without putting themselves at the mercy of cover versions, their all-important American fan base was slipping away. STARS contained no covers to help placate the American market who had been so taken by "If You Don't Know Me By Now", and as a result, STARS undeservedly disappeared quicker than their previous albums. The hits that did come off of STARS (originals, at that) reached the top 40 in America, but deserved much better. The uptempo "Something Got Me Started" and the wonderful title ballad are some of the best white R&B this side of Hall & Oates, and remain standards of pop radio today, so I guess there is some justice in the world. But STARS had 8 other songs that were just as good as those hits. They expand on their soulful pop sound with experiments in jazz on "Thrill Me", the reggae-fied "Model" and some rare journeys into political commentary with "Freedom" and "Wonderland". While the titles may sound generic, that's actually good because it proves Simply Red isn't trying too hard to act black by adopting the lingo. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars For Me The Best Pop Record Ever Produced January 3, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Simply Red have been my favourite band since Stars was released in 1991. Since then, I have bought every album on cassette, CD and vinyl. I am literally obsessed.
That said, I would like to point out that this is the first review I have written online. I have always felt that Simply Red's music has "sung" for itself, but I felt compelled to write this review at 1am to put my two cents in.
Stars is a Pop Music Masterpiece. Mick Hucknall is the greatest Pop singer since Sinatra (see him sing live if you don't believe me). This is not to be compared to Rock & Roll - The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, even Elvis Presley are all responsible for music being so ecclectic today and are far more important than any other Artists in history.
But Stars is Pop music at it's most pure, accessible and high quality best. There has never been an album before or since that was so perfectly arranged, written, performed and produced than Stars. The flow of the songs from beginning to end is like liquid, Mick Hucknall's vocals are flawless and the musicianship is impeccable. You simply cannot find a flaw in this album.
I am not going to spoil it for you and review each song. This album merely requires attention from beginning to end from someone who appreciates Pop music for it's ability to tug at every emotion through short(ish), meaningful songs.
Stars is rare magic and as we stand at the beginning of 2004 in a world of absolutely poor quality Pop music (with a few exceptions), Stars has not only stood the test of time, it actually sounds better today than it did that sunny day in 1991 when the musical part of my life was changed forever....
Thank you Simply Red, for the magic, emotion and perfection that is Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pop-rock-soul masterpiece July 17, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This is a relaxing, soulful album. It flows smoothly and is full of pleasing melodies and Mick Hucknall's masterful singing. I have very much enjoyed this album since 1993. With my considerable change in musical tastes over the past five years, it's one of the few I've held onto and still frequently play from that long ago. It is mellow, but far from boring. It starts with the funky, undeniably catchy "Something Got Me Started", then goes on to the quiet, romantic "Stars", and then there's the smooth, jazzy "Thrill Me." "Your Mirror" is both a political and personal statement, and "She's Got It Bad" is a trip back into 70's soul. "For Your Babies" is beautiful and calming, "Model" has a slight reggae beat, and "How Could I Fall" is a true winner, with its heartbreaking words and dramatic piano and sax solos. Overall, a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Wonder this was so Big in Britain!!! October 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album is undoubtedly a pop-soul masterpiece. From first to last, this album just hits you in the heart. "Stars" and "For Your Babies" can either elevate your soul, or move you to tears, which is high praise indeed. It goes without saying that Mick's voice would sound good singing the Yellow Pages ("Call for a freeeee apppointmenttt!"). This CD is their strongest overall, with the move from uptempo to reggae to ballad happening flawlessly. It's easy to see why this baby moved "Thriller"-type numbers in England. While we Americans were scooping up Vanilla Ice, England had its head on straight and made this a deserved smash. Why are most Americans' musical tastes so wretched (a question for the ages)?
