5.0 out of 5 stars Old Fan! December 21, 2006
By mrs.
Format:Audio CD
I cannot believe this is available. I loved this album when I was just a teen. I loved "No more I love you's" way, way before Annie Lennox covered it. I love her but, the original is by far my favorite. This song is a little darker than the rest of the album. It has a passionate feel to it. I own the vinyl but I haven't been able to find it on cd till now.

I cannot really compare the sound to another band, they are unique in my opinion. I love it for sentimental reasons also.

3.0 out of 5 stars 80's Timepiece December 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Not even Annie Lennox making a cover hit out of "No More I Love You's" could keep this album out of the "Shame It's Out-of-Print" File. Comprised of David Freeman and Joseph Hughes and produced by 80's and 90's alt maestro Jimmy Iovine, The Lover Speaks put out this album in 1986, toured briefly with the Eurythmics, then broke up after their sophomore effort was canned by their label. This is saccharine in spots, and the almost omnipresent high-pitched female backing vocalist gets a bit old, but there are some gloriously melodic moments, especially on "This Can't Go On!" It's a bit of an 80's time capsule, so if you enjoyed the poppier artists off the beaten path in that era, The Lover Speaks is worth picking up.

Never thought I'd find this on an officially released CD (I've seen some offerings which people had burned to CD from the original vinyl album). One of the rarest and most difficult to find albums and I'm so happy to finally have it.

There is only one reason to get this album, for the original version of "No More I Love You's". there are some other good songs, but with out NMILY's I wouldn't recommend the album to anyone. At collector prices, I'm sure you understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe this CD is for sale. August 17, 2013

Format:Audio CD
This is one of my all time favorites from the 80's. I first heard this on cassette tape when a buddy bought it at record store in Nashville. We listened to it over and over again and were just captivated by the lyrics and Freemans voice. I later got married and this record has been a favorite for 23 years. I 've even had friends call me from NYC and ask if I could check the bargain bins to find them a copy of the CD when it went out of print. I hear The Lover Speaks recorded a second album with A& M records which was never released. What would it take to release it!!!!!! there is a cult following of this Duo and you either "get it" or you don't. Highly recommend and I still have my cassette tape and CD of this band. Love love love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting!!!! Emotionally power-packed!!!
David Freeman's only published musical work. Harkons back to an era in music where melodrama and intensity in pop music was just about coming to an end. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars No More "I Love You's"
I'm generally dead against reviewing an album which I haven't heard in full, but since nobody else wrote anything about this one I feel I should make just one note here. Read more
