Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the Alt-Rock band fronted by Beth Ditto. A Joyful Noise is a blend of Soul, Gospel, Rock, Funk, Disco, Punk, Passion and Rebellion, Recorded in both Xenomania, Higgins' studio in England, and KBC Studios in Portland, Oregon, A Joyful Noise stays true to Gossip's trademark brash and unapologetic nature - that is, as true as possible for a band that is constantly reinventing itself and pushing boundaries. Working with Higgins, Gossip sought to create their own brand of pop. Ditto proclaimed, "I spent the whole year listening to ABBA and not listening to the radio," accounting for the pulsing energy of A Joyful Noise. The album's infectious tracks will certainly be welcomed by fans who are already entranced by Gossip's insanely danceable beats, and will no doubt lure in many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Euphoric! May 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Gossip head more in a Dance/Rock direction on their new album "A Joyful Noise". The music is as striking as the cover art.

Opening is the sublime and fuzzy "Melody Emergency", followed by the absolutely adorable "Perfect World" with pulsing synths, trilling guitars and Beth Ditto's emotive vocals soaring above it all, like something from the eighties.

The album is laden with winners; "Get A Job" is a groovy number with a spoken intro and gut-juddering bass ("It was adorable when you were in your twenties, not so cute anymore now that you're pushing thirty, you better get a job" she urges some freeloading party girl), "Into The Wild" is dark and downbeat. "Get Lost" is a slice of quivery House music, truly spectacular! "Involved" is shimmery Pop, "Horns" is a Funky horn-sprinkled Red Hot Chili Peppers-style rocker, while closing is the airy Rocker "Love In A Foreign Place".

A Joyful Noise indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another perfect pop record? Ditto that! May 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have been counting down to this release as much for my adoration of Beth Ditto and The Gossip as I was uber-producer Brian Higgins of Xenomania.

Beth Ditto is gorgeous, glamorous and grotesque all in the same collision of fashion and performance art. Her voice works great when fronting monster rock songs like "Standing in the Way of Control" - but then on Simian Mobile Disco-produced The Beth Ditto EP, she proved those pipes could just as seductively slink around a dance groove.

The Gossip - much like the Yeah Yeah Yeah's are no mere backing band. They are musicians at the top of their game. From shredding guitars to thundering bass and now heavenly keyboards they create intense, euphoric sonic soundscapes.

Brian Higgins house of Xenomania has produced most of my favorite pop albums of the past 5 years: 5 perfect albums and 22 CD singles by Girls Aloud, Gabriella Cilmi's stunning "Lessons to be Learned" and the two amazing St. Trinian's soundtracks.

Combined, they have created a dance pop masterpiece. This is audio candy for the ears - the production is crisp, the songs are solid, passionate, intimate and massive. The sound evokes as much Girls Aloud as it does Robyn (the funky, twisted Get a Job), early 80's new wave, latter era ABBA and Donna Summer.

A triumph and on track to be the soundtrack to a funky, fabulous summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Album of Summer 2012 May 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Ditto is the real deal. "Joyful Noise" is fierce from beginning to end. Fresh, addictive, wicked and glorious. It's an oasis in the sea of crappy pop and cookie cutter dance tracks. I bought this and Scissor Sisters new disc. Gossip far surpassed that disc. The whole album is sublime. Beth's voice is a glorious thing. I can't stop listening and neither will you. Make this your Summer 2012 go to CD. Brilliant stuff!

I give this album an A+! Beth Ditto, Brace Paine and Hannah Blilie have really taken their talents to a new level. The last album I heard from this band was Standing in the Way of Control from 2006. A few tracks were really good, but nothing like this! This new CD rivals almost every new album released in 2012 by far.

The band took sounds from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's and combined them to make new modern catchy music. Material like this doesn't come around very often.

This record deserves to be a blockbuster. Literally, every tack has the potential to be a single. Congrats guys! Job well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soundtrack to Summer! June 25, 2012
By David
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I keep reading reviews announcing Joyful Noise as a dance record, but it's really not. Don't get me wrong, the tunes are infectious and no one can deny the urge to dance along to several tunes like "Move in the Right Direction," but labeling this album as dance is far too shallow. As usual, the Gossip put their unique spin and musical blend on each of these tracks, of which there isn't a bad one in the lot. Yes, it's not Music for Men, but who wants a band to keep repeating what they did on their last outing? Pick up this album, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic June 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had heard of Beth Ditto and Gossip a few years ago from Perez Hilton's Web site. However, for whatever reason, I didn't check out their music at the time. I got second chance when I heard songs from "A Joyful Noise" as well as a Gossip interview on Larry Flick's show on Sirius OutQ radio. Mr. Flick, you've turned me on to so much good music, but this is one of the best. I love every single song. I'm actually kind of surprised that there are (so far) only five other reviews. I would think that something this good would have more people talking. (I'm going to do my best to spread the word.) Just buy this. There's really nothing not to like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of 2012 June 4, 2012
By Koil
Format:Audio CD
DANG, I didn't think the Gossip could get better then 'Music for Men', which was basically a rock/pop masterpiece. 'Joyful Noise' is a step in the right direction! More produced then any of the Gossip's previous albums, EVERY song is tight! The music and songwriting is top notch, any song could be a potential (successful) single. It is rare that you find smart, fun, sophisticated and brilliant pop/dance music everyone will love, this is it.
Buy the album, every song is a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breathe of fresh air for all of your old tracks May 23, 2012
By Kaczu
Format:MP3 Music
I have to say I was completely SHOCKED by this album. I've never heard of the group before so I didn't know what to expect. The only way I could explain it to you would be if you pulled out all of your old songs from the 90's and someone remixed them all......well. There's funk, electronica, house, 80's pop, small dub step moments and more crammed into this one album.

During the entire album I could have swore I heard people from years gone by. Was that Lisa Stansfield (Get Lost)? Did Grace Jones partner with Parliament (Horns)? Every song is a new experience on a particular theme or time. If you like a variety of music then this album is for you.
