Terence Trent D'Arby: Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby (Columbia)
Jon Young, Musician, November 1987
YOU CAN'T call Terence Trent D'Arby shy. On his audacious, uneven debut, this extroverted youngster co-produces, writes most of the tunes and sings 'em in a big, self-assured voice intended to prove he's the boss. Indeed, D'Arby practically offers himself as the successor to the legendary soul men of the '60s.
