I think the same artist did this cover and the Grace Jones cover...forget the name. He was Grace Jones' lover. I think it looks fantastic, that stretched out neck.

Seems like it's taken FOREVER for this to come out!

Yeah, the cover art is by Jean Paul Goude who did Grace's Slave to the Rhythm cover the following year. So awesome, so 80s! And that Miss Jones sure did get around, didn't she?

I know, I've been harping about Cristina Monet for ... what? Four years now I guess. Yikes.

It's really good! I love the Lizzy Mercier Descloux (R.I.P.) tracks, and it was great to finally hear Casino Music and Les Garçons.

i love jean!!!!

his work is so impressive... did he do an actual painting from this photo?
Sep. 7th, 2004 01:12 pm (UTC)
Hmm ... not that I know of. I can't even think right now if I've ever seen his paintings. Are they all done from photographs?

well the thing is... most of the photographs you speak of are actually photorealistic paintings. so you may have seen some of his work and thought it was a photograph... when in fact it was a painting...

he's a genius.

!!! I was just catching up on just the most recent entries using Sven's Friends Page, and I'm so glad I didn't miss this. I'll be looking forward to hearing the second and third tracks whenever my sister's through with her homework and goes to bed. I just might have to purchase a CD whenever I'm gainfully employed, too; you have turned me into a Christina convert!

Oh, I'm glad you caught it! Let me know what you think of the other tracks.

Did you listen to this one when I posted it earlier this year?
Sep. 9th, 2004 07:00 pm (UTC)
No, I missed that one, so I finally got to listen to all three last night. (I was going to reply to your comment at that time, but LiveJournal was momentarily down.) I like them all, but they still can't touch "Is That All There Is?" Few songs can, though. It is truly a brilliant cover.

Wow, I snagged those songs when you first posted them, but didn't get a chance to listen to them until yesterday. They're great; especially "Is That All There Is". I already have I think three covers of that song on my computer. And this is a wonderful addition.

If you like those you will love Sleep It Off, her brilliant second album. I'll play it for you sometime when we're feeling witty, urbane, and elegantly wasted.

Sounds like a plan. So it would probably come relatively soon, given that as of late I've been both feeling and acting quite witty, urbane, and elegantly wasted. um, despite what you might read in here...
Though it's okay if it doesn't transpire in the near future, given your ever-growing abundance of important responsibilities. I feel that my glow shall not fade so fast.

Having just posted an entry cheering Cristina's re-release, I was glad to find you'd noticed Ms. Monet's re-appearance as well.
