5.0 out of 5 stars Stacey Q: Dance-Pop music at it's best!!!!! Feb. 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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 :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Two of hearts...come on, come on! Dec 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Better Then Heaven ! April 18 2000
By Santosh
Format:Audio CD
It's rare when one can obtain a great 80's artist who puts out a great CD like "Better then Heaven" I was first introduced to Stacey Q with "We Connect" which for 8 years was all I ever heard of Stacey Q. When I had the oppertunity to get the CD , I was expecting it to be good , but it was BRIALIANT. The music is smooth and powerful with just the right hint of the electronic synthesisers the 80's were so famous for . All combined it makes a well balanced listening experiece. "Better the Heaven" and "Dont let me Down" provides one with the much need break from the "power tracks" and does it's job well with being melodious ballads. Then of course there is cresendo which starts with "Love or Desire" and builds up to the epic "Dancing Nowhere". "Insecurity" is the track which really sets the scene for what follows. "Two of Hearts" is more of the "High NRG" tracks and may seem out of place compared with the rest , but is still one superb track , and for sure it must be for it's what brought us to this CD. If you love the 80's as I do , You won't want to miss this one !

1.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT........ May 21 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A friend gave this CD to me from their collection about a month ago, and we played it and laughed, I mean really laughed. So hard we couldn't stop. This CD is not "Better Than Heaven" it is "Horrible Hell", with cuts like "Two of Hearts" her most popular song, this girl is definitely a one hit wonder, with no voice....So when ever my friends and I want to laugh we just put Stacey Q on and she supplies the humor. Stacey you chose the wrong career, you should of been a Comic or better yet a Porno queen.....Stacey if you ever read this I really would like to know out of all the talented singers in the world, how in the heck did you get a recording contract, and better yet how did your song "Two of Hearts" hit the Billboard Top 5....You can tell us....you did some favors didn't you....Stacey you make Debbie Gibson and Paula Abdul look like Barbra Striesand and Celine Dion compared to you. To all out there take this CD and do what is best use it as a frisbee, or for you ladies turn it over and use it as a compact mirror for when you apply makeup.
