Following hard on their self-titled album, True Confessions still found Keren Woodward, Siobhan Fahey, and Sarah Dallin sticking with producers Mike Jolley and Tony Swain, with the notable exception of two songs, one of which would break them into the US in a big way, even more than their earlier hit "Cruel Summer." There are a few surprises on this album, including their tackling jazz and rap.
The title track sports a bass rhythm synth and drum machine and the instrumentation seems smoother and richer, although with a reduced tempo compared to adrenalized burst of their Deep Sea Skiving songs. With string-synths and other keyboards slightly reminiscent of Eurythmics, "Ready Or Not" seem to drown out the girls' harmonies in this mid-paced dance number.
With a weird swirling keyboards opening, followed by a sax, the drum-machine backed ballad "Trick Of The Night" was the Rams' third single here on the night life, focusing on a lady's man who has a different life. "but the wind comes through you try to sell your soul/everyway you go it's a long way/now you're no longer just the boy next door/when they were falling in love with that clean cut smart change of style/just for a lttle while." When I first heard it, I questioned its validity as a single. Now, I think it's one of their best.
"Dance With A Stranger" is another low-key delight that missing link between light Brit-pop and samba or easy jazz, what with the piano, vibes and percussion. The lush string synths kick in during the chorus: "before we kiss the world goodbye (it's only a breath away)/one more dance before you die (so tender as the music plays)/there's no emotion only passion in your cry/love is the last thing on your mind when you dance with a stranger.

I was so excited when I found out that the first five albums by Bananarama were being re-released by collecatables; a company with a great track record of remastering and re-releasing older collections. I thought that there was a mistake when I opened up the cd and found the flimsey insert thay did not contain any credits or notations but instead simply had an advertisment for the rest of the bananarama re-releases. I could have overlooked the disappointing packaging if the sound had in any way been improved but instead, I was once again let down. These cds sound exactly the same as the original cd releases and are simply embarrassing when compared to London Records'recent remastered very best of Bananarama. These cds are a rip off. Recent re-releases by other eighties artista such as Duran Duran and Culture Club were completely digitally remastered and contained beautiful reproductions of the original artwork. They re-energized the music and retail for $1 less than these amateurish excuses for re-releases. If I was a member of Bananarama, I would insist that all of these low quality cds be recalled immediately and apologies sent to all the fans who were duped into purchasing them. On top of all of that I called their very friendly but ill-informed customer service department six times asking specifically about remastering and I pre-ordered two of the cds directly from Collectables after being led to believe that I would be receiving them before thir release date. I actually received them a day after so on top of feeling ripped off by the quality, I can also add the fact that I paid shipping when I live four blocks from a borders music and close to a Virgin Megastore. I had to pay extra to feel completely ripped off. I will never buy anything from this poor excuse of a record company ever again.

Bananarama have stolen my heart away with this album.This was the very first album by the Banana's that I happened to buy,and I loved evey song so much!This LP came out way back in the later part of the 80' 1986 to be specific.It was in a way a turning-point in their career,as it was a period during which they came into contact with Stock,Aitken and Waterman (SAW).From this album onwards,they had made worldwide success and the hits just kept coming.I mean for an un-trained female vocal trio...this was really a great acomplishment.All their 80's albums are so bright and lively,some songs could get U dancing like crazy.
Stand out tracks are "True Confessions","Ready Or Not","Venus" of course and "Do not Disturb".The other tracks are also strong supporting tracks worth mentioning.I rarely have so many favs. on just one album!
The title track is a real teaser,it has some great keyboard,and superb druming to go with....The initial part of this track has quite a long introduction,before the girls start singing,I find this something special and rare.Most of today's tracks just don't give us these superbly crafted no's....what do u say.The drumming is by A. Linn,he is also good at what he does!
So "true Confessions" track is definitely a rhythmic,dancey usual.
"Ready Or Not" is also so HOT,I love this one too!Really god on a dance floor.They say..."Ready or not,I'm coming,and I'm gonna find U baby so U better stop runing...." mmm!!gets me excited everytime .
A bit more sultry track in here is "A Trick of The Night".This track and the previous two were produced by Swain and Jolley.It takes some time to make an impression though...but is a great one to listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Confession...My fav Bananarama hit of all time is on this cd! Feb. 18 2006
By Kenneth M. Haley - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This cd is superior! Sooo many good songs on this album, I, personally don't care that most reviews may claim it's cheezy, that's a matter of opinion. This was thier most successful release in the states, including thier only #1 U.S. hit "Venus". So to me that says they did something right. However, other releases include: "Trick Of The Night", and my fav Bananarama single ever..."More Than Physical" the version on the album is a bit disappointing to me the 7" single mix is perfection, which is also the video version, if you can obtain it the video is available if you look up VHS music videos for bananarama the tape is called "The Singles," includes videos for U.S. released singles such as: "Trick Of The Night", "More Than Physical", "Venus", & last the U.K. only release single called "Do Not Disturb". other highlights on this cd include hits like: "Cut Above The Rest", "Promised Land", "Dance With A Stranger", "Ready Or Not"....oh let's not beat around the bush!...EVERY SONG IS GREAT! ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bananarama May 12 2007

True Confessions is classic Bananarama, always a good listen. Of course all the tracks sound clearer, and sharper remastered, a big bonus. New songs never heard before like Set On You, White Train, and especially Scarlett are a real treat to discover. Scarlett should have been included on this album, not sure why it wasn't. This remastered album is a must for Bananarama fans everywhere.

Their music never gets old for the true 80s fan. If you haven't listened to them since the 80s, this album will rush memories back to you. If you've listened to their greatest hits, try this for all the rest.

I love this CD back in the 1980s and still even now. I have always loved Bananarama's sassiness and the song choices exudes it. By all means, buy it.
