Texas – I Don’t Want A Lover: The Collection

The Eurythmics without emotion, The Pretenders without insight and soul, Blondie without songs… Texas are no things to no people. And yet, they sell, and Spiteri? a bandwagon-jumper with karaoke talents ?is perceived as a ‘strong woman’, despite the embarrassing tomb-raiding of black music and constant TV-shaped grinning. Ach, the injustice. This isn’t even a genuine best-of: inexplicably, it gives the baa-ing mob (and Chris Evans) a couple of hits (the Al Green rip-off “Say What You Want”, the title track) and a bunch of neutered, nondescript fillers. Sexless.
