|Great singer, great album. 'Black Velvet' everyone knows, but there is much more to this than that one song, 'Kickstart My Heart' being one example of the rockier material, while 'Lover Of Mine' demonstrates the softer side with a sublime ballad. Personally, I would rate this debut up there with the likes of Chrissy Steele, Darby Mills & Lee Aaron's s/t as my fave female Canuck releases and that is saying something.

|Un super àlbum de hermoso AOR, desplegado por estos talentosos mùsicos, todo un clàsico del gènero.......Black Velvet es increible.....

|Hablar del debut esta rockera canadiense supone hablar de uno de los discos más logrados de la cosecha del ´89 y de uno de los mejores discos de Aor grabados por una fémina.Composiciones rockeras con ese sello ´80 como “Still got this thing”,“Kickstart my heart” o“Just one kiss”,todas ellas geniales con la sensacional y cortada voz de la preciosa Alannah brillando.La parte más Aor se refleja en el temazo “Who loves you” (la joya del disco)o la excelente balada “Lover of mine”y claro:Black velvet

|Pues a mi siempre me ha parecido un disco bastante mediocre,(ahora bien el mejor de ella de largo) pues lo único que vale algo la pena es lo que Dave Stamos denomina como la parte AOR del disco...pero por desgracia hay muy poca parte de esa en este disco,o por lo menos el AOR q a mi me gusta,por q ese AOR arockerado con aroma y saborcillo campestre que precisamente es lo que aqui abunda a mi no me va nada de nada.NI FU NI FA.

|This disc rocks surprisingly hard in places, like "Still Got This Thing," "Rock This Joint" "Kick Start My Heart" (I believe this album came out several months before Dr. Feelgood, incidentally). The high-dollar '80's production smooths off the rough edges though, and you get a sound that reminds me of something like Robert Palmer's "Addicted To Love," if you know what I mean. Big and boomy and loud on the surface, but still lite enough for non-bangers. There are a few Diane Warren-sounding ballads for Mom and her friends; "Lover Of Mine" was the third single and oddly went nowhere. Alannah had a cool, bluesy voice with a bit of a rasp, and hey! She sang naked in the studio—my kinda girl! "Black Velvet" was the big hit of course, and it lives on via adult-contemporary radio in the States. My sister worked in a hair-salon in the early 2000's that kept the local soft-rock station on all day, and they still played that song all the time, which only made her hate it more. Anyway, the album

|... is better than Cher's from the same year, and easily as good as Heart's Brigade record. Which doesn't make it at all essential in my book, but for what it is, it's more than decent.

|"Doghouse" from your comment, it got me to listening to this album the last few days, really good, IMO way better than Cher. Agree, it has a more Heart feel to it. I also hear a bit of Chrissy Steele, too. Good album!
