Samantha Fox: I Wanna Have Some Fun (Jive/RCA); Death of Samantha: Where the Women Wear the Glory and the Men Wear the Pants (Homestead)
Chuck Eddy, Spin, March 1989
"SAMANTHA;" according to Today's Best Baby Names, derives from Aramaic (the language Jesus spoke) and means "the listener." But the listener here is me, and though Samantha Fox and Death of Samantha both look better than they sound, they also sound better than you'd think. Their third-each song-sets are their best by far.
