5.0 out of 5 stars "Sneaking Out the Back Door"....With a Grin..... June 8 2013
By Breadmanwalking TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was hip to Matt back in '84 when this was released. As this is the
starting point of the band....this one's really worth it! I own a copy
and just today I ordered another. The price has dropped and for about
10 clams I can pass this on as a gift! The latest CD without Basia is
great too. In other words....they've still got it! Next year is the 30th.
Why don't they remaster/re-release this.....I'd bite! For now....this will
have to do....Go ahead.....Add To Cart....

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW - I am addicted to this CD! Dec 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
Best CD I've bought in years!!! My wife and I are big Basia fans and have anxiously awaited new music from her only to be disappointed. I came across this CD on Amazon ("People who bought Basia also bought..."). Thank you, Amazon!!!
This is NOT just Basia. It is everything she brings - jazzy, penetrating vocals - plus much more. This is the first time I've heard Matt Bianco and I'm hooked - just bought two more CDs.
"Whose Side Are You On" has a great Latin / jazz beat with some restrained techo-influences. Mark Reilly's vocals and Basia's really complement each other. The musical composition and execution are great. If you like Basia's "Time and Tide" & "London Warsaw New York", you'll love this.
Basia is the lead singer on a few cuts (one of the best is "Half a Minute") and backup on most of the others ("Get Out of Your Lazy Bed" uses her jazz vocal talents to great effect). The blend is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the '80s May 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
A true classic which sounds great almost twenty years after its first release. Full of the humour and fun of the earlier Matt Bianco work but much deeper and more textured, as well as more lyrically sophisticated. The title track is breezy pop, but it is the Latin inflections in "No No Never," "Half a Minute," and "Sneaking Out the Back Door" which make this album so intriguing and unique. I resist the term "fusion" in that it is a classification used to market and sell music, but I don't know how else to describe the synthesis of pop, jazz, salsa, samba, and electronic music which characterizes this work. Basia's voice is in fine form (we Matt Bianco fans always KNEW she was going to be huge), and Mark Reilly sounds young, playful, and exuberant. His performance on "More Than I Can Bear" is particularly poignant--the piece must be one of the saddest songs ever written about a lost love. Great music for blasting in the car on a hot summer day, windows open all the way and nowhere you really have to be in a hurry.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ideal soundtrack of my summer holidays April 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
Mark 'Matt' Reilly is without a doubt the King Of The Beach.
This album was ment to be the ultimate summer holidays music adventure.Basia is following Astrud's footprints in the hot
sand of the Copa Cabana, sweet Bossa Nova rhythms are
attacking your senses, Santorini here I come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best Jan. 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
Matt Bianco's first album is no doubt their very best ever. The music is simply dance music with light jazz all over them. Songwriting and arrangement are absolutely perfect. Each song differs and still you can feel the same spirit in each of them. Mark and Basia were in their highest performance. Unfortunately another song, Big Rosie, was not included in the album (I found it in their tape version). That's one of my favourite song. After this album Basia and another member left the group.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm On Your Side Matt... Oct. 24 2000
Format:Audio CD
Heard that Basia was affiliated with a little group known as Matt Bianco in Europe in the early eighties. I had to hear for myself just how good they were. Let me tell you,now I know for sure there was nothing like this out there in the pop and MTV world of the 80's. What an incredible group to use such wonderful influences like Astrud Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, and other early Latin-samba-salsa based artists.There is an almost retro feel or throwback to the days of these Brazilian artists of the 60's and 70's with a contemporary feel highlighted with light jazz.Whose Side Are You On ? is truly a remarkable import that seems to grow in cult status among import collectors of European pop...Add this one to your list !
