This interesting concept album is built around Amanda’s version of the Nine Deadly Sins. Laziness is represented by the first track Hollywood Is Just a Dream When You’re Seventeen, a catchy albeit pessimistic mid-tempo pop number. The appealingly arranged Love Amnesia with its unusual percussive echoes deals with Indifference, whilst Bureaucracy is slammed in the rhythmic dance track Red Tape which contains some prophetic observations. (This album was released in 1981). The lilting, dreamy New York speculates about the state of the city in 1990; the sin is Fear and this is where the album title came from. Undoubtedly the highlight of the album, Egal is the most memorable melody-wise. This beautiful French chanson blends the best of Amanda’s sung & spoken vocals in a superb arrangement with atmospheric background vocals. It’s not clear how Pride comes into it but that doesn’t matter. Next up is Nostalgia in the form of Berlin Lady, a sad story song about growing old with a varied tempo. The sin of greed is examined in the plodding Nymph0mania, not one of the better offerings on Incognito. Originally an Italian song, If I Was A Boy covers Envy. I love the edgy emphatic keyboard patterns on this up-tempo number that bears no resemblance whatsoever to Jane Siberry’s When I Was A Boy or Nina Hagen’s Wenn Ich Ein Junge War. Incognito concludes with the emotion of Anger in the fast-paced Made In France, a pulsating rock song with a charming blend of French and English lyrics. Although not on the level of her masterpiece Revenge, this is probably an underrated album. Let’s say three-and-a-half stars. Thematically it resembles in a way the A-side of Grace Jones obscure 1979 album Muse. Essential for devoted fans and worth acquiring for Egal alone.
