Marianne Faithfull - A Secret Life (1995)

rock | 1cd | eac-flac-cue-log-cover | 210MB
For her first studio album comprised of mostly original material in over a decade, Faithfull enlisted noted composer Angelo Badalamenti (who collaborated with David Lynch for the Twin Peaks TV soundtrack) to write music for her lyrics and produce. Faithfull is still in rippingly fine voice, and her words still penetrate. But while Badalamenti's densely orchestral arrangements can be effectively noirish, they can also create an inappropriately cold and detached ambience, despite standout tracks like "Flaming September" and "She."

-01. "Prologue" (Badalamenti, Dante Alighieri) – 2:03
-02. "Sleep" (Faithfull, Badalamenti, Frank McGuiness) – 3:43
-03. "Love in the Afternoon" (Faithfull, Badalamenti) – 3:30
-04. "Flaming September" (Faithfull, Badalamenti) – 5:01
-05. "She" (Faithfull, Badalamenti) – 3:24
-06. "Bored by Dreams" (Faithfull, Badalamenti) – 3:08
-07. "Losing" (Foreman, Levine, Badalamenti) – 3:52
-08. "Wedding" (Faithfull, Badalamenti, McGuiness) – 3:16
-09. "Stars Line Up" (Badalamenti, Faithfull) – 3:51
-10. "Epilogue" (Badalamenti, William Shakespeare) – 3:12
