"Turn Around and Count 2 Ten" is worth buying the CD for alone. Dance-y, fun, and fabulous. "Come Home With Me Baby" is the most amazing and hilarious track...lyrics like "...Oooh, you're just so lucky, no I don't do this for anyone...I was looking for somebody and you've got the body I want" make DOA a standout band in my book. Other great tracks include "I Don't Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," "Get Out Of My House," and "Give It Back That Love Is Mine." This is one of a handful of albums that I can play straight thru without skipping any tracks; Pete Burns' Gothic diva vibratto and inventive lyrics keep me interested at all times.
Pick it up before it goes out-of-print!
The singles, Turn Around and Count 2 10, Come Home With Me Baby, and Baby Don't Say Goodbye, all very strong high energy tracks - were largely ignored at the time (due maybe to changing musical tastes in the late 80's) and are still very underrated. Turn Around in particular, would have to be the fastest song they have ever done and my favourite all time Dead or Alive song because of it. All three singles were remixed as single releases , so you dont get the best versions here, but close enough to get an idea why all three tracks went number 1 in Japan and why Come Home went to number 1 on the US dance charts in 1989.
The other standout tracks include I Dont Wanna Be Your Boyfriend and My Forbidden Lover. What a shame for the dance/pop music world that this was the last album release for Dead or Alive in the UK. Dead or Alive had so much potential to be so far greater a musical force than what they actually achieved. This album goes on record to prove that they could do it on their own without SAW and do it well, VERY WELL!!
I just don't understand how this album didn't do better in America with such incredible songs as "Come Home With Me Baby", "My Forbidden Lover", "Turn Around and Count 2 Ten", "Baby Don't Say Goodbye" & "I Cannot Carry On". Goes to show how we Americans always overlook something extremely good that is right in front of us in our never ending search for something newer (and what we think is better).
Another thing that makes this album so remarkable is the fact the each song flows into the next and perfectly accompanies the previous one. Side one is flawless in doing this and so are the last two tracks on side two. I don't think most people really realize how well produced "Nude" really was/is. Brilliant!
