Kim Carnes – Mistaken Identity

Kim Carnes – Mistaken Identity

I was going to accuse Kim Carnes of being a one-hit wonder with “Bette Davis Eyes” (which went to #1 on the charts, is the lead track of Mistaken Identity and the only song I had heard from this album previously), but I suspect that’s because her main genre is Country, and I never listen to Country. She is apparently very prolific and is active even today as a producer with the popular act Kings of Leon.

But the fact that she’s not a one hit wonder doesn’t change the (other) fact that I generally found this album to be merely fine. Not at all terrible, but not interesting to me. To her credit she has an excellent singing voice, the music is not slipshod, and the lyrics are not nonsensical, but it just didn’t appeal to me. My recommendation is to skip this album. However, if you do listen to it and you like it, I won’t accuse you of having bad taste in music. Now, if you admit to liking Yoko Ono’s music

Last: Phil Collins – Face Value

Next: Van Halen – Fair Warning
