Raindancing is the second studio album by singer/songwriter Alison Moyet. The album includes four single releases; “Is This Love?” (co-written by the Eurythmics’ David A. Stewart under his ‘Jean/Manu Guiot’ pseudonym), “Weak in the Presence of Beauty”, “Ordinary Girl” and “Sleep Like Breathing”, a duet with David Freeman of the band The Lover Speaks.
Alison Moyet’s re-issues of past glories certainly raise questions. While avid fans or open listeners will find them a delight and amusement, new generations might consider them nothing but a contraption to suck them into the nostalgia trip that’s been happening for the past five years. On top of that, reading the singer’s opinions on each of the albums makes the listener wonder if we should even give it a try considering that for ‘Alf’ and ‘Raindancing’ the road was full of struggle, deception, disappointment and manipulation. Is this the music we want to enjoy? But then again, more often than not, we know nothing on the machinations behind our favourite music.

So in an age when the argument of “not being commercial” didn´t mean much, at least not in the pop world, the purpose of ‘Raindancing’ was clear: to establish ALISON MOYET as the pop star she already was in the UK but across the big pond and why not? With her inimitable and seductive voice, with the past success in the dance side of synth pop along with Vince Clarke, an excess of over-engineering and production… who could’ve said it was the formula for disappointment? ‘Raindancing’ is a continuation of the 80s dance-disco beats that indeed, parades much more production that parlays with the synthetic. Contrary to what MOYET has written in regards to the album and her involvement in the sound and the traumatic outcome apparently, ‘Raindancing’ fits the bar of commercial albums back then, the overproduction provides it with a poppy freshness that Alf lacked. And although some critics have stated that ‘Raindancing’ goes through pop music without shame nor glory, following the path of revivalism and nostalgia, 29 years later certainly grants some patina appealing to old and new listeners whatever their motives.
