Terence Trent D'arby - Terence Trent D'arby's Symphony or Damn*



Con un paso fugaz por la consideración masiva y tremendamente subestimado, aunque vale decir, teñido de una atrevida, temeraria arrogancia que lo llevó a comparar su primer disco con Sgt. Pepper, Terence Trent D'Arby supo encarnar las mejores influencias de la música negra, tales como James Brown, el primer Michael Jackson o Prince, y crear una música nutrida de estilos como el pop, el funk, el soul y el R&B, donde lucen su magistral voz y sus distinguidas composiciones. Terence Trent Darby's Symphony or Damn es su tercer álbum, donde destaca el funk Do You Love Me Like You Say?, el sabor latino de Delicate, en dúo junto a la cantante Des'ree, la emotiva balada en piano Let Her Down Easy, otra espléndida balada como Seasons, el rock de She Kissed Me y Baby Let Me Share My Love, y el soul de T.I.T.S./F&J. Se puede decir, sin temor a equivocarse, que es su mejor disco.****1/2

Pues no lo digas con la boca muy grande porque su mejor disco puede ser cualquiera de los cuatro primeros. Cada uno de ellos por distintas razones.

Desde ya que es materia opinable, como casi todo, a excepción de las teorías científicas que requieren de una demostración para ser verificadas, o de las creencias religiosas que se fundamentan en la fe, pero te puedo dar la derecha en cuanto al primer álbum, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent d'Arby, no tanto así con el segundo, Neither Fish nor Flesh, o el cuarto, Vibrator, de notoria inferior calidad.
