Album Description

The Queen is Back! Legendary singer songwriter Donna Summer is back with her first studio album in 17 years. In the thirty plus years that Donna Summer has been making music she has never confined her artistry to just one genre. Although Donna is, and will always be, "The Queen Of Disco" to many fans, her hits have spanned multiple musical genres from Rock to R&B to Inspirational and of course, Dance.

Summer helped to define the 70's pop music generation and Crayons has all the characteristics that made Donna an icon. Containing a potent mix of the up-tempo tunes and ballads, the new album showcases incredible new material that is written by Donna (who wrote or co-wrote the majority of her hits of the 70's and 80's). Working with Donna were renowned writers and producers including: Greg Kurstin (Lilly Allen, Pink), Danielle Brisebois (Natasha Bedingfield, New Radicals), JR Rotem (Sean Kingston, Rihanna), Evan Bogart (co-writer of Rihanna's smash "SOS" and the son of legendary record executive, Casablanca Records founder and Donna's mentor, Neil Bogart), and Lester Mendez (Shakira, Santana).

5 out of 5 stars Too long waiting and she deserves a big applause!!!!, August 2, 2008
By Roberto from Chile
Too long waiting and she deserves a big applause!!!! August 1, 2008 by Roberto from Chile I have been a fan of Donna for such a long time that hear her voice singing new songs is an absolute pleasure. At the beginning she was not of my favourites but later her voice was always there to lift me up...we all know how important music is for those who surf through these sites....I am always looking for treasures.... Crayons is not a masterpiece, there two or three very weak songs but we have to consider she is almost 60...her voice is as powerful as always. I feel the company did not spend much money on her album...maybe a track produced by Timbaland (not of my likes.. but he knows the hooks) would have helped very much. The exposure on American Idol was huge and perfect but I do believe "Stamp your feet" was not as strong as we expected(anyway debuting at Nr. 17 on Billboard chart was perfect), but other tracks like "crayons", "drivin down Brazil", "fame" and "the queen is back" are very good. When will we see her videos on DVD? (not the one with 5) I mean those of endless summer collection. A voice like hers deserves to be recognized. 60 years and still doing that is amazing!!!! Try it.... you will not be disappointed.

3 out of 5 stars The Queen is BACK ! --- but is it a COMEBACK ?, July 5, 2008
By petman, Boston MA
Donna Summer has always felt conflicted about her being typecast (as a talented vocalist of mere "dance music"), about her fame, and about some of her fans. After a seventeen year hiatus, Donna heralds her royal return! In a noble effort to recapture some of her past glory, Dance-Floor Donna sings (with obvious references to her earlier Disco Diva days): "So many years ago on the radio, she crept into ya soul and loved to love ya all...The Queen is Back!" Well, partly. One gets the strong impression that DS has resented her being pigeonholed by fans and the music industry with the "Queen of Disco" moniker, and has persistently tried to peck out of this disco/dance cage with forays into other, more "respectable" musical categories. Yet, despite her tenacity, she has never really attained the popular and financial heights she once knew whenever straying too far from these familiar genres. She crows, "Fame made a fool out of everyone...Its all about who they think you are," and "Let me introduce myself. Im a woman that youve never seen. You might know me from somewhere else as someone that Ive never been." Her Majesty seemingly wants to reclaim her crown while at the same time implying shed like to abdicate her throne! Our Queen, perhaps, but a reluctant, conflicted Queen. Despite repeated efforts to expand her musical repertoire in the past, these have mostly been fair to failing commercial diversions. (Donnapologists may disagree.) While promising "the Queen is Back!" on *Crayons*, she nevertheless tries the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach again---with mixed results. The album starts off with great fanfare, full of the energy, freshness and passion we have missed, as she tries on varied contemporary dance music styles. However, more than halfway into the album, the excitement peters out, plummeting into generic, lackluster, indistinguishable filler of dance numbers, pop tunes and ballads, unworthy of our Grande Dame. While listening to her convincing impersonation of Tina Turner in Track 9 may be a hoot, her "stretch marks" throughout the CD are most embarrassingly revealed here. So, does she feel unfairly bound to restrict her God-given talent mainly to fan-friendly dance fluff? Rumors also persist about her love/hate/love relationship with a sizable portion of her fan base after finding religion: gay men. The story goes she loves the sinners, hates the sin, loves the sinners money. After 17 years of mounting bills, is this CD just Donnas most recent attempt of holding her nose at her fans while going in for another financial dip at the same well? Heaven Knows. (The Royal) "We" are glad the Queen is back. Unfortunately, her tiara has lost much of its former regal glitter.

After 17 years, Donna Summer has made it well worth the wait! She has put together a deliberate set of songs that span many different musical genres. This is why I have loved Donna so much. She really is an actress who sings. She can apply her voice into any direction she pleases. There are songs here for everyone. But I think the most important aspect for the album is that no matter what genre it is, the songs are superior. She had a hand in cowriting all of the songs. And in all of that, she did not abandon her dance roots. The songs here are mostly danceable. The most haunting song to me though is Be Myself Again. Donna is at her most vulnerable and its beautiful. Other favorites are the new single, Stamp Your Feet, the #1 Dance Hit, Im A Fire, Fame(The Game), Slide Over Backwards, Queen is Back, Mr Music, bonus track, Its Only Love, and the title track, Crayons with Ziggy Marley. Wow, Donna, with all this creativity back in full force, please dont make us wait another 17 years for the next CD! Music is not the same without you!!
