David Byrne & Fatboy Slim recruit a bevy of talented vocalists for this rendition of their Imelda Marcos musical HERE LIES LOVE. As Florence Welch powers her way through the opening title track and its disco breakdown, it becomes clear that these songs serve as a narrative for Marcos' life, as St. Vincent and Candie Payne cha-cha their way through the childhood on "Every Drop Of Rain." Tori Amos slinks across "You'll Be Taken Care Of," while Martha Wainwright takes a delicate approach to the ballad "The Rose Of Tacloban." The Latin jazz of "How Are You?" is ably handled by Nellie McKay, while Steve Earle brings his earnest voice to "A Perfect Hand" (his wife, Allison Moorer takes the lead on "When She Passed By"). But Cyndi Lauper takes to the disco-rock of "Eleven Days," as much as Róisín Murphy funks out "Don't You Agree?" "Ladies in Blue," with Theresa Andersson, hearkens back to classic ABBA, closing out the first disc. Sharon Jones, of course, brings down the house with "Dancing Together," though Alice Russell holds her own on "Men Will Do Anything." Kate Pierson of the B-52s lends her distinctive voice to "The Whole Man," while Sia gets into the Afro-infused "Never So Big." The more electronic- and politically-oriented "Please Don't" suits Santigold quite well, and David Byrne takes the stage of "American Troglodyte," later sharing a duet with Sharon Worden on "Seven Years." But the Wall of Sound soul, as tackled by Nicole Atkins on "Solano Avenue" slides easily into your brain, while the disturbing "Order 1081" is made more palatable the the Natalie Merchant's lullaby-like rendition. Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos return to wrap up with "Why Don't You Love Me." As a whole, surprisingly catchy, and surprisingly strong.
