So if you're an Apollonia fan, then this is a must. Lovely vocalist apollonia does a great job with this 80s diva CD. Her music sounds like Janet Jackson a little like Paula Abdul.
My favorite song is mismatch a song that sounds like Janet Jackson what have done for me lately. I also like help wanted and synchronize I love this cd. One person found this helpful. A great album of dance floor songs by Apollonia. Her vocals are pretty and the songs are well chosen for her voice.
I enjoyed all the songs and her voice sounds lovely. My favorite is the dance floor driven "For Your Love," with a heavy bass beat. Good job Apples! Great album.

There are, sadly, no liner notes with this release so I'm not sure it entirely qualifies as 'deluxe' but I'm guessing those who buy this will already have an idea who this artist actually is.
For those on the fence about getting it, a bit of background: Apollonia Kotero was the female lead in Prince's Purple Rain movie and the lead singer of girl group Apollonia 6. She later had a role in US soap Falcon Crest and then pursued a solo music career. This was her first and only solo album, released in and now expanded by the Wounded Bird reissue label from 10 tracks to 28 for this double-disc set. Sound quality is clean and excellent and must be from the master tapes.
It's a little louder than the original album but not massively compressed or amplified. Some of the remixes are in house or Hi-NRG style. The various mixes are shuffled around so as not to group those of the same song together and create an aural endurance test! This and one other album track are produced by Ish, who was also the man behind Company B, Promise Circle, and others. The end results aren't overly derivative though. It's kind of like Expose crossed with Sheila E, though there is no Prince involvement.
The whole thing is enjoyable and well put-together despite the lack of a booklet or decent liner notes.
Apollonia has a good pop voice and this is a perfect purchase for fans of 80s music especially the US dance sound of the latter part of the decade. She's not known in the UK, so a US label has compiled this reissue, making it a pricey import but worth getting if you like this sort of music. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Mismatch is a great dance track that is a mix between the beats of Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul in a time where everyone enjoyed music for what is was.
Nowadays it seems an industry full of chancers claiming plagiarism to bolster their bank accounts like they invented music and own every note and rhythm; generally made by those that flopped in their own career s.
Et voici encore une chanteuse?! C'est une collection de chansons, somme toute assez bonnes, mais rien de renversant. Pourtant il n'est pas produit par Flyte Time, mais par Bobby Sandstrom Translate review to English.

Purchasable with gift card. All Is Vanity What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun? A parable to clutch? This world a monument to shame All is vanity A striving after wind All monotony The more I know; all is vanity! All empires fall into obscurity All horizons fail The more I know the less I hope.
Nihil Sub Sole Novum An ancient sun rises 'cross the sky, As on this world as any other, And hasteless turns the dial of days. In everything there is an apathy All rivers run and are returned And yet the sea is never full. The clever moon will roll the tides And still its grip will ever pull. The gales will rage and then relent But wind will never want for breath.
The forests burn and are rebirthed Their roots will feed upon our death. The crimson fire reveals and etches truth upon my bones The constant rewriting in the ages before us Implicit in the vein, here in his nebula of dust There came no end to reconcile my anguish Nihil Sub Sole Novum What has been before will be again Nihil Sub Sole Novum Whilst ever present; this hell is cyclical.
The cost of promise is to fork the path I chose this burning curiosity, A searing word to leave upon the page. Lure of the Abyss Engorged by stolen doctrines Its malignance beckons forth Now, manifest Anthropomorphized force Throned without will for ascension Quenched by drought in a thirst for truth For what was I but a spec of dirt within the dust?
Cast aside to return an empty ambivalent soul When the spark is liberated As from the cradle torn The darkness shapes a vacant persona His nothingness is born.
Behold his lack of lips to read, His numbing face forlorn. Grotesque simulacrum of none Whose coming dulls the dawn To know the lure of the abyss is transformation of the self The gnosis of reality: a compromise How can you reconcile the brevity of a single life With the grander story of humanity?
Glib aphorisms wont suffice! To resist the abyssal allure is to deny the human condition I persist, the old ideal anew In exaltation of the null. Apotheosis I reject your veneration condemn your lack of vision No facet of man would suffice to sate deification Bearing the fools' derision No prophet am I but the brunt of a tongue I deify your indecision Your emptiness, your apathy, your flaws We all have to fall To ever survive Your loftiest goals reduced to last rites All believers reap their reward Or are cast into the wilderness Exiled from fate's illusion The borders of reality's choke-hold The burden of faith: You cling to the old, Where god had a face, but never was whole.
Witness the end of all ends When all becomes grey You chose not to see the sack-clothed souls compete Mourning, wailing, down on their knees Seeking some closure for faith but failing again The endgame concealed All purpose is lost The journey is only beginning Wanting Rich in the scorn of their gaze Waiting Locked in their master's embrace Restless Writhe in the ash of the son Aimless And so it is done All of your pitiful lives Building to this moment Tangential entity Behold the new king, the same as the old Long live his subjugation Exalt irresolution Rid of the burden of proof In this apotheosis.
Totentanz In the embodiment of liberty That all are free to endure Come now, take part in the coming valuation Of the great leveller's cure For those of noble descent Deigned to descend with the mongrels of chance All shall be equal again In amoral finality In your cosmic irrelevance Come lambs and wolves Repeat until we fade All of our impetus is unmade Who was the wise man and who was the fool? Now reconciled in the lifeless brotherhood. Who was the king and who was the pawn?
Come lambs and wolves Repeat until we fade All of our impetus is unmade Irrational creature You who sought your reward There is no escaping this fate From becoming at one with the void. Here Begins The Fall The steadfast stone engraved with hypocrisy Imposed upon the right to exist An obelisk to appease atrocity Commanding awe to compel you to forgive The cult of the selfless A moralist front To redefine virtue as the serving of vice Oblivion becomes your final measure of faith The cosmic guilt of which their code's comprised That their revelation is in conflict with your will Upon false foundations an unchanging law of self-immolation That you must destroy yourself to be pure Here begins the fall Inaction built these walls, our indifference monolithic An endless penance for a crime yet uncommitted.Kingdom of Vanity. likes.
