Ultimately, all Tina Turner CDs will likely be measured against "Private Dancer," and I think that's unfair. "Private Dancer" is a product of its time and place, and will long be remembered as Tina's big breakthrough, but its big contribution to popular music is that it gave Tina Turner the opportunity to make albums like "Wildest Dreams." "Wildest Dreams" is an under-appreciated and deeply satisfying Tina Turner classic. The first song on the CD, John Waite's "Missing You," is low-key and fairly inconsequential, but she gathers momentum with "In Your Wildest Dreams," which is a sexy, dreamy duet with Barry White. By the opening notes of "Whatever You Want," it is clear that this is a singer at the peak of her power and confidence. As much as I love Taylor Dayne, her version of "Whatever You Want" (which Ms. Dayne wrote) pales in comparison with Tina's. "Do What You do" and "Thief of Hearts" are rock-flavoured pop, along the lines of "Steel Claw" and "Better be Good to me" from "Private Dancer." Tina takes on the Pet Shop Boys' sound in the lovely "Confidential," with the boys (well, Neil Tennant anyway) adding tasteful background vocals. "All Kinds of People" (co-written by Sheryl Crow) is a stirring, bouncy piece about racism, respecting diversity, and not teaching children to hate. The U2-penned "Goldeneye" is Tina's foray into Shirley Bassey territory. "Dancing in my Dreams" is intensely moving in its meandering pace. Track 7, the Britten/Lyle composition "Something Beautiful Remains," is probably the most beautiful song Tina has ever recorded. It's about the perseverance of memory in tribute to a departed loved one, and Tina adds grace and heart-breaking emotion to the song. You can't call yourself a Tina Turner fan if you don't own this CD!
