Having said that there are some great songs present. "Puss'n Boots" and "Strip" are classic singles and are well-produced by
Phil Collins (the rest of the album is produced abely by Richard James Burgess). "Montreal", "Playboy" and "Navel To Neck" are all great Ant songs. "Baby Let Me Scream At You" is funny and catchy.
"Vanity" may be about Vanity (whom he had dated after Prince did). The girl on the back cover is Karen Landau (Adam then-girlfriend). After the BBC banned the "Strip" single and video no further singles were issued from the album as a result.
I think it's fair to say that all in all half of this album is great and half of it is not quite as great.
The bonus tracks are all interesting versions of Strip songs.
"Kiss The Drummer" and "Yours, Yours, Yours" (the albums' two B-Sides culled from the singles) would have been nice if they were included after the initial album tracks but oh well.
"Mister Playboy sing your song and that horse you rode in on".
I was surprised to see such negative reviews of this album from a few others, apparently there isn't much middle ground between loving and hating it. To be honest I was never a huge Adam Ant fan and I never owned any of his other albums so I can't say whether or not you'll like it if you own and like some of his other albums. Speaking for myself however, I really enjoyed it, enough that I'm going to buy it for a second time which is very rare.
I have all his CD's but unlike most this one still gets decent play and yes, I do find the entire CD quite captivating.
When I was a teenaged girl, I was often taunted with the nickname "Goody Two Shoes" because I didn't drink, didn't smoke, and so when this one came out? Well, let's just say cranking on my headphones in the in the halls at school between had me smiling rather mysteriously and more than one guy overhearing it taking a second rather speculative look my way, particularly when I traded my jeans and t-shirts for a more "charming" look. (I still have my poet's shirt and pirate's boots, LOL...) Frankly I think "Libertine" came a lot closer to describing the person I was then but....
PS: Yes, there's still a "whip in my valise" and some lucky guy has Adam Ant to thank for that!
