Marianne Faithfull
“Kissin’ Time”
(Virgin Records)

This CD is a perfect
example of artists collaborating. Names to be recognized are Beck, Blur, and
Billy Corgan. “Kissin Time” is Marianne’s first album in almost 3 years. It
is a series of collaborations and Marianne wrote the lyrics to eight of the
ten songs. As far as being my cup of tea? I would say not really but I think
Beck fans and Marianne fans would be very impressed. Key things I noticed
were good song structure, production and utterly personal vocals. Overall if
you’re into that kinda shit then you’ll be in to this kinda shit.
