A lot of post punk, soft rock, blues, and disco influence on what is otherwise a tight and occasionally transcendent record--I mean, that title track. I dig it.

Excellent record. Atmospheric and extremely raw in places, especially the vitriolic closing track, why d'ya do it. The rest is fine, with, the ballad of Lucy Jordan, one of the highlights, and used to great effect on the Thelma and Louise soundtrack. Broken English, is probably Marianne Faithful's best album.

Increíble disco, nunca lo había escuchado, suena como una combinación entre el "Horses" de Patti Smith e Iggy Pop y David Bowie en la época berlinesca. Su voz casi afónica tiene cierto encanto. El cover de "Working Class Hero" de John Lennon es alucinante. La canción "Why D'Ya Do It?" es indecentemente pegajosa y, como broche de oro, la portada es magnifica, esos colores, esa pose. Ni pensar que descubrí esta joya escuchando las recomendaciones que me da Spotify, ¡qué gran sugerencia!

After years as a "pop" star and some awful producers, MF and her musicians finds her voice and tear into new territory. Her own compositions hit the mark with their thoughtful lyrics. (Not many people know that the title track was inspired by the Baader Meinhof Gang.) The covers hit the mark as well; her version of "Working Class Hero" with its simply but ominous bassline brings it to the level of bitterness that John had in mind. In fact, Yoko would compliment her for this rendition.
