  • Producers: Martyn Ware, Terence Trent D'Arby, Howard Grey.
  • One of the most original recording artists of the '80s, Terence Trent D'Arby released a brilliantly executed album with INTRODUCING THE HARDLINE.
  • Combining the best of rock, pop and contemporary urban R&B, Terence's vocals can be smooth like the sweet soul singers of the '60s, funky like Prince, or as impassioned as the most sizzling rocker. "Dance Little Sister" recalls James Brown, "Who's Lovin' You" sounds like a Sam Cooke song, while many of the other tracks show a Stevie Wonder influence.
  • The album is completely Terence--he played many of the instruments, co-produced most tracks, and wrote just about all of the songs. His vocals alternate from the slickly pop and fierce falsetto, to rough-edged soul. "If You All Get To Heaven," a Prince-like hybrid, showcases a sharp sense of production, vocalizing, and song-craft. "If You Let Me Stay" is funk and pop, drenched not in horns but in Terence's determined vocal. "Rain" is an amalgam of so many styles that it leaves one's head spinning. "Sign Your Name" is a killer track in a Sade groove. "As Yet Untitled" is a vigorous acapella spiritual. "Wishing Well," a #1 international hit, is freshly innovative, with fascinating lyrics and hooky, percussive instrumentation. It's a song that gets its claws into the listener and doesn't let go. All tracks are uniquely rendered, with roots and influences highly apparent; yet the production is so modern that it becomes a distinctive sound on its own.
