If there is a mad scientist out there who is attempting to perfect a time machine, I nominate Deborah Harry to test it out. I miss Debbie Harry.



To be more accurate, I miss Debbie Harry's voice -- that seems to be the feature that has aged the worst. Twenty seconds into Necessary Evil and I'm cringing, and it's only amplified by the fact that this very same voice once performed "Heart of Glass" and "Rapture." "School for Scandal," for instance, sounds like Tenacious D. And lyrics such as "The devil's dick is hard to handle" do not alleviate such a comparison. 


Necessary Evil's failure isn't entirely Harry's, though. The production is undecided. On opener "Two Times Blue," the band is emo by numbers, but the rest of the album flip-flops between (ironically) poor-man's Madonna ballads and poor-man's Madonna electro-pop. I hate to tear her to shreds (sorry), but this record only makes me miss Debbie Harry even more.

Apparently sir you HAVE NO TASTE FOR MUSIC!!!! this is her FINEST!!! solo album since "Deboravation". Give the women some slack man. So what if she hasn't done a solo album in 14 years at lease she did her best and she try hard next time be a little more nicer

I agree! her voice has kind of changed alot! but two times blue isnt really that emo. I love Debbie Harry and Blondie to bits but this solo album really isnt as good. She needs the rest of the band to be good I think. Her solo stuff hasnt really been very good since I want that man.


The production is "undecided"? Who taught you how to write? Go "alleviate a comparison" up your ass.
