5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Synthesizer-Pop Music November 28, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Kim Wilde is a very good pop artist. She has good vocals all the way through this album. My favourite tracks are "The Touch", "Janine", "Rage to Lover", "The Second Time", etc. If you enjoy pop music,go and get this album. Since the tracklistings are not present, here they are: 1. The Touch, 2. Is It Over?, 3. Suburbs of Moscow, 4. Fit In, 5. Rage to Love, 6. The Second Time, 7. Bladerunner, 8. Janine, 9. Shangi-La, 10. Thought It Was Goodbye.

First, since Amazon doesn't give them, here's the timing of all the b-sides, remixes and extra-tracks of this edition : Lovers on a beach single 3:58, 12 inch 7:46, Putty in your hands 3:07, Turn it on 4:38, The second time / Go for it 7 inch 3:46, 12 inch 6:34, extended dance version 7:13, dub version 9:27, u.s. remix 5:26, The touch 7 inch 4:06, 12 inch 6:36, Rage to love 7 inch 3:50, 12 inch 6:00, Shangri-la alternative version 4:44, 12 inch 4:59, special re-mix 4:36.

Now, about this album, I need to say that this is one of the three Kim Wilde albums I had a hard time warming up to when I've first listened to them because like Catch as catch can and even Now and forever ten years later, these aren't compilations of hits like Close, Love moves or Love is have been, they are concept albums, so they are naturally very different sounding and need more than one listen to reveal their true gem songs, not all are hit singles alright, but they all are very good songs none the less (Is it over, Fit it, Shangri-la and Suburbs of Moscow are now my true favorites even though I didn't like them much at first).

Now let's get back to this newly remastered 2 cds edition. Finally we have on CD all single versions (and all the singles have different mixes than the album versions) and it's sad and true but no-other Kim Wilde compilation (and there are loads of them out there : and I know it because I've bought them all ! ) have ever compiled the single versions of this album 7 inches so thank you Cherry red for this treat because especially the Rage to love single version deserve this treatment since it is so much more powerful than the plain original album version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavily synthesizer-oriented album for Kim isn't bad August 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The third album from Kim Wilde wasn't exactly a favorite of mine when I first bought it back in 1988, but having rediscovered it on CD in 1994 through the East Coast import company Voice Records, I've come to regard this as one of Ms. Wilde's treasured jewels. Certain songs made her one of pop's queens of betrayed and unrequited love. With such introspective songs, she's one of the rare romantics of our time.
Teases & Dares, an exercise in Mini Moog, Yamaha DX7, and Synclavier synthesizers, was released in 1984 and in a year that saw Prince and the Revolution, Bruce Springsteen, and Tina Turner dominate the charts in the U.S., it's hardly surprising that Kim Wilde went unnoticed. Yet in assessing the releases of 1984 today, I see that it helped boost the use of electronic rhythm and sounds, as evidenced by the first two songs on the album. And comparing this with the power-pop/rock of her breakthrough debut album, it shows how Kim evolved with each new album, just like David Bowie and Prince.
I get a sense of isolation, loneliness, and crisis in self in "Suburbs Of Moscow."
The next song, "Fit In", is a sad lonely song that espouses anything but automatically going with the flow. Yes, loneliness is the cost of free and different, but is it worth it, is what I get from this song. The theme is to a par with Missing Person's "Go Against The Flow."
"Rage To Love" is an upbeat number with pounding bass rhythm and that "doobee doop doop wop wop!" chorus. Not only do I like this but I remember Genesis having a Kim Wilde poster promoting this song on the wall in their "Anything She Does" video back in 1986. The small things I remember from way back then!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally found my Shangri-La! August 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My original cd version of this superb album, was kinda muddy sounding, but I cherished it because this album has become increasingly harder to find over the years...until now.WOW! I could personally kiss everyone working at Cherry Pop Records for thi reissue. The other Kimmy reissues are also excellent, but this has always been my fave. The first album on which Kim wrote and produced, the terrific songs, "Fit In" (my theme song), "Shangri-La", & "Thought it was Goodbye". Sure I know the production is dated, it was released in 1984 & sounds like it, but I think thats part of its charm, give it a second chance and really listen to the lyrics. Lots of Xtras here, more than I would have thought. An excellent reissue for an underrated album thats long overdue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was fantastic. Now I'm older November 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm 33 years old now (and Kim's about 40 with children!). When I first heard her voice and - at the tender age of 15 - saw her sing I was captivated. Somehow after all this time I still cannot lose my enthusiasm for her. But is the music any good? And is this album any good? Well yes and no. When I was half as old as I am now she was the absolute last word in pure, quality, sexy, powerful, stylish pop. Today? Well, I'm a bit more sensible.
I still continued to collect her music, (mainly out of loyalty) however and I have to say, some of the tracks on this album really do stand the test of time. Bladerunner has a very clever, well written feel to it with an interesting approach. This is not early eighties mindless pop - even if it is a bit silly at times. Even more raw (and immature but none the worse for that) was an earlier album, "Select" with, in an innocent kind of way, more powerful tracks still. Is this album an improvement? Well it's clearly progression but looking back on it it's still difficult to say it's quality with any kind of credibility. I'm really, really trying to say something significant about Kim's wonderful music but to be honest, this album is really just "nice noise". A lot of these song's lyrics really don't stand up to close scrutiny but then no-one ever said Kim Wilde stood for anything except harmless pop. "Fit In" is a perfect example of a young girl (I think this is the only track she actually wrote herself on this album and in fact probably represents Kim's first attempt at writing) learning to express emotions. It's really a bit weak.
Songwriting aside, "Janine" is altogether a much more polished piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kim's Masterpiece
This is Kim's last "new wave" album before she adopted a more commercial pop sound for the remaining half of the 80s. Teases & Dares is her masterpiece in my opinion. Read more
