The leading single of this superb dance labum say it all, "Two Of Hearts" although mock and underrated, is one of the most infectuos dance track of the mid-80's, many compare Miss Q to be tryin' to be Madonna, but wassup with that?, sorry but the style was that!, Madonna is extremely talented, but so this single, has such classic sound to it, although is already synth related and some may said it sounds dated, this song stands for the classic of it all, the rest of the Better Than Heaven album is a POP album of the 80's that was produced in the best standard by those days, and tries hard to keep with the audience, failin at sometimes, but overall offering a memorable record of dancefloors. The Highlights of this record are "Two Of Hearts", "We Connect" and "Dancing Nowhere".

Whenever I hear that staccato, repeated "I...I...I...I...I...I...I need you," that alone tells me of the two of hearts that beat as one. And that leads me to Stacey Swain, a.k.a. Stacey Q, whose group SSQ formed a vital forerunner to dance-techno music. Yes, I remember her, cute girlish pop voice, long mane wavy blonde, John Lennon sunglasses, large blue eyes, high-cheekbones and face that narrowed to a pointed chin. At its best, SSQ's music was upbeat keyboard synth music that didn't have too much variations between non-single songs.
The version of "Two Of Hearts" is a long 7:13 one, not the single mix, and it can't be found on her Greatest Hits on Thump Records, so I guess it's an 80's compilation for the radio edit. But the prominent rhythmic bass synth, the prominent drums, and the other synth programming that pushed it to the Top Five is still there.
"We Connect" was the second single, and the sound is similar to "Two Of Hearts." The frantic pace continues with "Insecurity". Her voice is not at its higher register octave, but more like an early Madonna.
The dreamy quality of the mid-tempo title track, makes it a standout track. The pulsing bass synth is like the kind used in Madonna's "Like A Virgin," except not as pronounced.
"Don't Let Me Down" has the same tempo, made exquisite with the brief synth harps. A few strings and this would be a perfect mid-tempo old school disco dance.
Things get a bit funky with the bass synths in "Music Out Of Bounds" and Stacey's voice is sung in her lower register. A computerized "Mr. Roboto"-type voice is used in parts.

Full disclosure, folks: Circa 1986, this male reviewer heard "Two of Hearts" pounding out of a Santa Barbara aerobic studio for days on end, as I walked from work at a bookstore. (No, I didn't shed my glasses and unfurl my puritan hair, made animal by the Q beats. Don't jump ahead, gang!). Lots of "models" (of one form or another) were hanging around the studio, with the awesome 80's look; a younger Jane Fonda thing plus scrunchies and matching shoelaces -- all in very bright colors. (Now you know why Corey Hart - the "third Corey" - wore his sunglasses at night!) In short, the S.B. visual imagery put Duran Duran videos to shame! Great associations for the tunes!
So if the same studio had played, say, Tracy Chapman every day, I'd be giving *her* five stars. But they played Stacey Q. Luck of the draw, folks! Oh, the music? Check out the samples for streamlined, linear, fluorescent UPbeat sounds! Not timeless, really... but of a time worth going to! Keep it bright!

Stacey Q is the most unappreciated artist of the 1980's up until today. Some say that her girlish approach is very annoying, but I find it rather appealing. At least she was being real to herself, and that she had confidence. This is a very good album. It made it to #46 on the R&b/Hip Hop charts, and to #102 on the billboards. :(
1)Two of hearts- good song.Made it to #3 on the billboard charts. Kinda long though as it approaches 7 minutes. Cute girley vocals. But I wish that the radio single version was on here instead.
2)We Connect- a fast pace song that made it to the top 40.
3)Insecurity- nice song. I can identify to this song. Made it to #1 on the Dance Charts. Cute lyrics, reminds me of Madonna.
4)Better Than Heaven- a sweet ode to love.
5)Don't let me down- a nice slow ballad. Very nice and sweet to dance to.
6)Music out of bounds- a dance song very electronic though. Made it to #19 on the Dance Music Sales.
7)Love or desire- an ok song. Sounds like somewhat a spanish synth.
8)Don't break my heart- a nice song back from the 80's. Very night-like song, Don't know why but that's what I envision when I hear it every time.
9)He doesn't understand- Very lulling the song. This is one of my favorite songs by Stacey Q. Makes you wanna dance.
10) Dancing nowhere- very rocky-like lol. Another early Madonna reminicent.
**Don't know how true this is, but I heard that she has a new song coming out, off her new album "Stardust". Listen to the airwaves for it and vote her #1 like she should be!!!!!
**A lifetime Fan :)
