Acting Lovers - Erotic Secrets
Acting Lovers are back with a long-awaited third album gathering their most recent singles as well as potential hits... Since they picked up the torch from E-rotic, they kept on producing excellent eurodance tracks, with the classic sexual innuendoes (but without the making love sounds) and never deceived their fanbase.
Album features soulful vocals by Kathryn McCunningham and powerful raps by Danny Ciccone, as well as intelligent, well-written lyrics. There are not just tracks to dance to, every track is a story on its own. And there are only original tracks, no cover !
Album opens with a superb fast eurodance track, A.N.A.L. (an acronym meaning Alex Needs A Lover), a real gem.
Then comes the Radio Edit of the lovely Curtain Falls, another killer tune tainted with nostalgy
It is followed by When Love Dies, an uptempo rupture song. Sadness in the lyrics is balanced by the pounding rhythm and sizzling melody
Then comes Radio edit of exciting Euro-reggae single Summertime, sunny and joyful, a real summer anthem.
Afterwards we have Unforeseen, a sweet, sultry and romantic ballad.
Next track is Radio Edit of Cam 2 Cam, which combines a modern sound, slightly trancy, and irresistible beats
Then comes the classy If You Need Me Tonight, which will have your bodies rocking all night long
You And Me is one of the project's oldest songs : Patrick Thomson composed in 2001 and Davis O'Flynn wrote the lyrics one year later. Breath-taking and fast-paced, with amazing synths, pure classic eurodance in every tone and string.
Back to euro-reggae with the superb song Don't Lie To Me, where Kathryn spits all her anger against the liar who cheated her.
10th track from the album is the Radio Edit of Angels Never Come Back. Originally written in 2009, it is another brilliant track
Stay (Female Version) is another well-crafted ballad
Next track is smashing fast-paced euro-reggae track Robbie. The group presented it as the "sequel" of Ray's Way Is Gay from previous album Burning Temptations
It is followed by The Power Of Good Bye, a massive, pure eurodance to die for, one of my favourites (and it was not easy to chose, since all tracks are sooo good !)
Album ends with extended versions of You And Me and If You Need Me Tonight.
Acting Lovers prove once again they don't just copy the E-rotic style, they perpetuate the tradition with as much talent as Brandes team used to. Erotic Secrets is a must-have for every eurodance fan !
