Overview

Released in 1986, Notorious has Andy Taylor contributing on only four songs before leaving to start his solo career, but on the strength of the title track's number two placing and "Skin Trade"'s number 39 mark, the album itself peaked at number 12 in the U.S. and number 16 in the U.K. "Notorious" itself showed real liveliness, thanks to its modern gleam and the catchy stutter of its chorus. "Skin Trade" is almost as worthy, thanks to its sultry, seductive air and enchanting but complex rhythmic allure. "Meet el Presidente," a number 24 hit in Britain, sports a rather appealing flow. The provocative, nightclub brand of martini-sipping pop is meritorious, felt mainly in the album's two biggest tracks. [EMI's two-CD/one-DVD edition, released in 2010, adds 15 tracks to the original album, including B-sides, single mixes, and remixes. The DVD contains Working for the Skin Trade -- live material captured during 1987-1988 -- along with several videos and a Top of the Pops appearance.]
