    REVERIE album review

    REVERIE album review
    After 35 years, since her last album, what should we really expect from Cherie Currie? Well, after being given
    the opportunity to hear it I can assure you, her new album (REVERIE) is a giant leap forward. Cherie has brilliantly
    lifted the lid from a musical treasure trove which has been waiting to emerge.

    A mix of up tempo rockers and slower melodic songs, with meaningful lyrics, this album is on par with works from
    other prominent female singers from the last several years and yet there is a sense of rediscovery that runs throughout
    it. Her long-time fans are bound to appreciate it and it could easily become a favorite, for anybody who hears it.

    The title track, REVERIE, opens the album and man! Does this song rock, or what? You bet it does! "There's nothing
    I can't be, inside my reverie" Cherie sings with undeniable rock star gravitas.

    The next song is called INNER YOU and it's Gherie's introspective look at herself with catchy word play like "inside
    my inner you is where you'll find the real me."

    IS IT DAY OR NIGHT follows and what can I say. It's so great to hear Cherie rocking out on this Runaways classic
    and as a duet with Lita Ford, it's even more of a treat for those of us who have loved the Runaways, forever!

    SHADES OF ME is a slow duet with Jake Hays and explores the regrets people can have about a relationship that didn't
    work out, in the past.

    QUEEN OF THE ASPHALT JUNGLE is another rocker with plenty of cool lyrical references to life in the surrounding city.

    AMERICAN NIGHTS is, of coarse, another great Runaways song and another great duet with Lita Ford. The chemistry between
    these two ladies is awesome, to say the least!

    Then it's slow down time with DARK WORLD where Cherie sings about being "a dreamer, riding in the moonlight, alone
    in the danger zone" with a voice that is warm and textured and uniquely compelling.

    Next up, is my personal favorite. I've always loved BELIEVE. In my opinion, it's Cherie's most powerful song ever and
    this new version is even more excellent than the original.

    I'M HAPPY is Cherie's declaration that she'll always be crazy and wild and nobody is going to make her feel bad. I think
    this song encapsulates her unbridled optimism, in a wonderful way.

    Last but not least is ANOTHER DREAM, where Cherie proclaims "if your dream dies, you dream another dream, until you find
    what sets you free." Words to live by, for sure!

    REVERIE features 4 songs co-produced by Kim Fowley (his last sitting studio production before his death) Gherie's son,
    Jake Hays, took over production, when Kim's illness kept him from continuing and, of coarse, Cherie co-produced the album.

    Furthur album credits are forthcoming but suffice it to say the musicianship is flawless.

    Grab this new Cherie Currie album, as soon as possible. You'll definitely be glad you did. It flirts with timeless
    pop-inflected sounds and yet testifies that she still has the guts to travel new ground.

    In my humble opinion, even if she were never to release another album or play another show, Cherie Currie will leave a
    legacy few artists can touch!

    Hello to all, my name is Howard Stafford and I just joined like 15 minutes ago. I am very pleased to be here to celebrate everything about Cherie Currie and her amazing family. I learned about this board at California Paradise California Paradise - Long Live The Runaways which is the greatest group ever of any kind/subject. If you love Cherie and the Runaways you have to check out CP. Anyway I love REVERIE! It really is a fabulous album and everyone should buy it, you will not be disappointed. Anyway, very happy to be here and look forward to the future. Have fun, be well.
