Anna Domino \ This Time [LTMCD 2399]

CD and download edition of the second album from by Anna Domino, originally released by Les Disques du Crépuscule in 1987. This Time followed Anna's acclaimed debut set, and marked the start of an enduring songwriting partnership with Michel Delory, with production by Flood (Depeche Mode, U2).

Less groove-orientated than its predecessor, This Time offers stronger, more direct songs delivered in a variety of styles, including uptempo dance tracks (Time For Us, She Walked), ballads (the singles Lake and Tempting) or country-folk (Own Kind). The album saw Anna at the top of her game, and it's a measure of the calibre of the writing that a song as strong as Hammer could be relegated to b-side status.

The five bonus cuts include non-album tracks from singles, along with an alternative version of Tempting produced by Alan Rankine (The Associates).

"The pairing of Domino and Delory did their best work on the first few cuts here: Own Kind is a bouncy synth pop number that carries a stinging message about "a generation rotten to the core," while the full-bodied disco groove of Time For Us forces Domino to abandon her usual wispy singing, with fine results" (All Music Guide)

"A consistently melodic album with several standouts, notably the ambitious, baroque Kate Bush stylings of the title track, the serene ballad Lake and the excellent single Tempting. A triumph of understated, infectious pop" (Leonard's Lair, 07/2004)

"Her best and most enduring collection of songs. This Time displays an impressive range of moods and styles, and represents that ultra-rarity - the glossy but memorable album from 1987 that you will still want to own. Quite a result" (Whisperin' & Hollerin', 8/2004)
