    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a decent come back, but with all the buzz made by her comercial relationship with Gaga and The Apprentice she would have done something way better to stablish herself again as an influential music figure. 6.5 Expand

    Lauper's teeth-itching screech does no favours to the likes of :Shattered Dreams," "Down So Low" and "Crossroads." [Dec 2010, p.98]

    It makes her Christmas album look like OK Computer. Horrible. [Dec 2010, p.112]

    Apart from the odd incongruous squawk or squeal, she handles blues standards like How Blue Can You Get, Romance In The dark and Wild Women Don't Get The Blues with real empathy. [Dec 2010, p.108]
