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.

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.

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.

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!

Okay, this album is awesome. Within a few hours of listening I got memorizing the catchy melodies and sentimental lyrics. Beth Ditto's booming vocals, powerful and strong as usual. This album is one of the best things that has happened to our world.

The opening song, "Melody Emergency" is a catchy tune that is mostly flared from Rock/Pop music. Lighten with the poppy drums and beats, with the fun and outrageous guitar riffs, and Beth's voice and lyrics, makes this song an instant favorite. The song uses catchy references like, "So you're not a rock 'n' roller, and there's nothing wrong with that" and "You can't deny the animal in you" from the already amazing verse, and then booming out into a oldies "Ooh" and she spats "Animal" and "Emotional". The bridge becomes a soft-pop melody, with a small keyboard in the background as she softly sings (For Beth), "Each of us loyal to the night" and then shouts back out into the dancy chorus. This song is an instant for me.

"Perfect World" is a soft Seventies Rock-N-Roll, song, but also mixed with modern Pop/Rock music. She starts singing with a deep vocal, "I put a wish in... Made it my mission" and then shouts out, "Relax, it's only dreaming facts" as the chorus booms in. And by the time it reaches the next verse, it is a soft bass-drums style like the first verse, as she sings, "A church, a place to fit in, a new religion", and then booms out back into the chorus. And then the bridge is too epic to stand, as her loud vocals mix with some drums and strings and some synths, "Don't get mad, you did your best and now it's all in the past to stay" and then she booms back out into another beautiful chorus. The song then fades out as she's humming melodically. Absolutely beautiful single.

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!
