a totally brilliant debut album,
from an excellent band.
"Monkey House" is just so totally amazing, smokin'!
"Bridge of Spies" & the full version of "China", gorgeous intro keyboards, excellent rock guitar intro again on "Valentine"
& ethereal electro keyboards on Heart & Soul
I saw a T'pau live gig, & i quite surprised myself, as i found it impossible not to sing along to the words, & didn't even realise I knew the words by-heart!
they are/were such an original talent, as well as seeming to be a group of likeable & well-grounded individuals.

This is one of the very best albums you will ever buy.
There is not one track that is not an excellent production.
Shame it's out of stock at the moment.

Clearly, Carol Decker and company are Star Trek fans, as they took their name from the priestess in the Star Trek episode "Amok Time." Me, I heard their single "Heart And Soul" and was entranced by the dreamy new-wave/alternative pop hybrid they came up with. The smooth melodic keyboards and wall of sound makes me imagine of floating down a river. Carol's voice varies between the sultry monologue: "Something in the moonlight catches my eye/the shadow of a lover goes dancing by/looking for a little bit of love to go, so/give me love give me heart and soul" to lilting singing, of which the two are mixed together, and finally the shrill emotion in the chorus. One of my favourite songs of all time.
"I Will Be With You" is one of those wishful dreams of going back to times past. However, it's the third single (in the U.S., anyway) that rivals "Heart And Soul" in sheer silkiness. "China In Your Hand," which did better in T'Pau's native UK, opens with pizzicato strings, and this leisurely paced song coated with their usual wall of synthesizer. The chorus goes "Don't push too far/Your dreams are china in your hand/Don't wish too hard/Because they may come true." Or, as another proverb goes, "Be careful what you wish for-you may get it." The sax solo at the end is a nice touch, and the fact that there is a brief reprise of this song as the last track hints at its status as the keynote track here.
"Friends Like These" takes a critical look at tunnel-visioned friends who fall down once their dream and vision prove fallible: "But oh how the mighty all fall down/Heavy in a sea of principles." The chorus goes: "Only one dream/only one way/only one vision and thought for the day." Carol wonders if they are aware that there's more than one way to the answer.

This is one of those albums that really puts you in the mood. Heart and Soul of course is my favorite track. Very lyrical and poetic it's the music that one will never forget. I once got into an argument about how to pronounce T'Pau.
I say Tee-Pau! You say???

Having heard Heart & Soul many times I finally got around to buying T'Pau's CD. We all have bought vynil and Cds because of a great song and then were disappointed by the rest of the album; they had 1 good song and just cranked out the rest to fill up the album. Not so with this one! I first played it at my office on a little player and was impressed with the lyrics of every song. They were carefully thought out. Harmony was good and the back-up musicians were very creative. Then I took it home. I played it on my big sound system, wow! I've never rated any album with 5 stars until I heard this one. It's mixed perfectly and someone was thinking while they wrote because there's so much depth. Musical routines, sub-routines, sub-sub-routines. The album explores many emotions of Carol Decker the lead singer and Ron Rogers the guitarist. This is one time I got more than my money's worth. It would make a great gift for someone special.
