Following the skeletal, occasionally experimental synth pop of Yaz, the bold, brassy production of Alison Moyet’s 1985 solo debut, ALF, came as a surprise to many. Sounding like a mid-’80s updating of vintage Dusty Springfield, ALF (Moyet’s punk-era nickname) features the powerhouse ballad “All Cried Out,” the sexy raveup “Love Resurrection,” and Moyet’s outstanding debut solo single, the Lamont Dozier-penned “Invisible,” one of the finest pop-soul singles of its era.
Alison Moyet’s solo debut moves away from the all-electronic backing of her two-album partnership with Vince Clarke in Yaz, but ironically, those two albums sound much less dated in retrospect than Alf itself. Hooking up with Bananarama’s producers, Tony Swain and Steve Jolley, Moyet delivers an enormous, walloping mid-’80s pop sound that constantly threatens to overwhelm both the songs, which are a mixed bag, and occasionally even the formidably voiced singer herself. Several tracks make it through the production mill unscathed, notably the singles “All Cried Out” and “Love Resurrection,” but the album’s pinnacle is the remarkable “Invisible,” a soulful shouter penned by Motown great Lamont Dozier that’s among the great R&B pop singles of the ’80s. Moyet tears into the song’s emotional chorus with more ferocity than on the rest of the album, and the song is as melodically sturdy as any of Dozier’s previous hits. Some of the other tracks would benefit from less-overbearing production, most notably the chilling “Where Hides Sleep,” making Alf one of those albums that sounds better once the listener has mentally undressed the songs a bit.
