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 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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best Jan. 17 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 Can't believe I found it! April 22 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I was in England in the 80's during college, I met a bobby. He and I went out for the duration of my stay. He introduced me to Matt Bianco and actually gave me the tape "Whose Side Are You On". I lost the tape and was very sad. Now I can't believe I can buy another copy. I was sure I would never get to listen to Matt Bianco again. Thank you, Amazon!

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 An awesome & energetic mix! Nov. 3 1999
Format:Audio CD
This album, including 'Basia' on vocals, will make you want to dance and jump. My five year-old can't get enough of this music! Matt Bianco's jazz/pop mix will never go out of style... and it's so original. Whenever I need a musical pick-me-up, this is the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastern Europeans Gettin' Down April 8 1999
Format:Audio CD
I heard this album for the 1st time in '85 in a DC record store and had to have it. Unfortunately it later became unavailable in the States. This band launched the career of Basia. Dig the bari. He really swings.
