The legendary Cyndi Lauper returned last year with the release of ‘Bring Ya To the Brink’. Working with artists and producers like Basement Jaxx, Kleerup, Dragonette, and The Scumfrog, the result is one of Cyndi’s strongest albums to date. Full of pop hooks, 80’s-inspired synths, soaring vocals and a dollop of disco, this is definitely one of my favourite albums of 2008. Standout tracks include the club hit ‘Into The Nightlife’, the Kleerup produced ‘Lay Me Down’, as well as ‘Set Your Heart’, ‘Echo’, and ‘Grab A Hold’. Although the album did not receive much promotion or radio play, it truly is a gem and makes the cut as one of my favourite albums ever. Check it out on iTunes or at your local record store, it’s well worth a listen.
