Terence Trent d'Arby's Wildcard!, or simply referred to as Wildcard, is Terence Trent D'Arby's fifth album. It was released in 2001 on his own independent record label Sananda Records following a six year absence from the spotlight.
Falling halfway between the modern R&B of Introducing the Hardline and the extravagant Neither Fish nor Flesh, Symphony or Damn is Terence Trent D'Arby's most ambitious album yet. It's also his best, because it takes the fine songwriting of his debut and melds it to the sonic excesses of Fish. Sure, some of it is embarrassing (it's hard not to cringe during the "Welcome to My Monasteryo" declaration at the beginning of the album), but more often than not, D'Arby's experimentations succeed, and succeed grandly, at that.
Having risen to initial fame with his own inimitable blend of pop, soul and R&B, Terence Trent D'Arby continued to build a career for himself as a highly eclectic solo star. This concert from 1987 gives an incredible example of his diversity and talents, and was recorded at the Ohne Filter in Germany.
Now residing in the "Where are the now?" file, TTD was the man for a while. And rightfully so.
