Between this first official solo album by Chrissie Hynde, the gorgeous-looking BLONDIE 4(0) EVER box set of new material, and the possible release of two new albums/DVD by Siouxsie Sioux (and the forthcoming Siouxsie & The Banshees Box Set), this is going to be one rockin' Spring and Summer! Good job, Ladies!
I'm very excited/intrigued to see and hear what Ms. Hynde has in store for us: I hope it's like a musical scrapbook of her experience up to age 63 and writing new music w/ new, different partners in a different locale. I only wish the album included some of the quality demos and recordings she done over the last 30-something years. I wish she included her Bond theme in the track listing, along w/ a studio rendition of The Carpenters' "Superstar". Would have made the album even more special. I hope this album is a critical and commercial hit. If "Dark Sunglasses" is a window in to the power and content of the album, we've got a worthy companion to her albums w/ THE PRETENDERS during the 1979-1984 eras.
