5.0 out of 5 stars A TRULY Great Album December 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Don't listen to any "overanalytical" reviews. This album is awesome. Cyndi does a much better job singing. Practically every song is unforgettable. Her voice successfully conquers every imaginable musical style, such as rock ("Change of Heart", "One Track Mind"), romantic ballad ("True Colors"), Mardi Gras music ("Iko Iko"), pop ("Calm Inside The Storm", "The Faraway Nearby", "911"), and a much more successful remake of the "Blue Angel's" "Maybe He'll Know". IMO, "Change of Heart", "Iko Iko", and "The Faraway Nearby" are the greates tracks on this album (although all of them are distinctly different). "True Colors" is a real classic; it's one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. It's not a mess of different styles, though. "True Colors" is a very solid album. All songs are logicall integrated into one unforgettable performance. For those who would like to listen to other awesome Cyndi records, I suggest "A Night To Remember" and "Sisters of Avalon". You won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Perfect Sophomore Effort...Not A Slump Either March 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I recall reading one very perceptive review, I believe it was in the Village Voice, when this album first came out in 1987, that insisted that THIS was the album on which Cyndi Lauper set out to prove herself as a SINGER. SHE'S SO UNUSUAL her solo debut, had any number of moments that showed off Cyndi's multi-octave range to good effect, but it was more about sass and image and "girls having fun." I had been listening to (and enjoying) the first two singles on the radio for a few months before I heard the entire record. There had been some mention in the rock press of Cyndi's considerable vocal prowess. But I didn't really get what might distinguish her from any other pop princess of the time (including you-know-who) 'til I actually heard her wail torrents of regret and anger and Lord knows what other emotions at the close-out of "Money Changes Everything." It was one of those hair-stand-end moments, like Janis' "Try," when I realized what all the excitement was about.
But aside from that spinetingler, SHE'S SO UNUSUAL was not a record that let Cyndi pull out all the stops vocally. The focus was on something else, creating a great pop record, not a vocal showcase. On her second release, she tried to do both. The vocal pyrotechnics are there on numbers like "Boy Blue," "Calm Inside the Storm," and "911"--she gets the chance to belt and not just embellish. On the other hand, unlike so much of the current diva-driven product, the songs remain the thing. The vocals are still at the service of the lyrics and melody, not the other way around.
Lauper's detractors sometimes mock the little-girl voice apparent on the title track, and such affectations are to some degree a matter of taste.

Format:Audio CD
This album certainly has a lot of memories attached to it for me. Then again, all 80's music has a special memory for all of us. The first time I remember hearing "True Colors" was in late November of 1986, I was 17 and a junior in high school working late in the town grocery store. I was the only person left in the store to close up late, and I turned up the radio and Cyndi Lauper started singing her song. It had been a while since I had heard her voice on the air. Her last hit was "Goonies" in late summer of 85'. I really loved "True Colors" it came out at just the right time of year. In late November of 86', when its cold outside and the wind is blowing and you had to wear a coat. Those were great memories, and also about 2 months later in January of 1987, that's when I first heard "Change of Heart". Both of these songs remind me of my small hometown in Oklahoma during the fall and winter. Of a fun job that I didn't have to take too seriously and mopping the floor after the store closed. Turn up the 80's tunes! If you like Cyndi Lauper, then you'll love this album. It's quite a bit slower than her first album "She's So Unusual", but then again it's also 2 years later also. The music started to change as the world started to change. I urge you to buy this album, it's truly a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Different April 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the album that got me into cyndi lauper. This album will take you to a musical soundscape, its as if each song is connected all throughout. It exhibits the psychidelic playfulness of Cyndi's music. I would even dare to say that this is better than She's So Unusual. Tracks are:
1. Change of Heart - Rock, soundblasting, exhilirating, and exciting!
2. Maybe He'll Know - a trip to the oldies
3. Boy Blue - A bit long, but the overall trip is good, i like the synths.
4. True Colors - quite different from ballad formats at the time it was released.
5. Calm Inside the Storm - I dunno what to make of it, it doesn't seem to fit in any genre that I know, or i could be wrong.
6. What's Going On - the single version is much better, her vocals are weak here.
7. Iko-iko - cute track, I like it a lot.
8. Faraway Nearby - cute track, compliments iko iko.
9. 911 - the weakest tracks on the album, but I heard it on her 'Live in Paris' performance, and it sounded much better than on this record.
10. One Track Mind - One of my favourites. Its different, it takes you to a trip, the lyrics are a bit odd though. A good ender for an album
