Editorial Reviews

In 1984, the Bangles were just another club band from Los Angeles's Paisley Underground scene. Though their peers would disband after mere college radio success, the Bangles would parlay the Underground into superstardom. The curiosity factor then afforded to an all-girl band and their later recording of Prince's "Manic Monday" were certainly instrumental to their rise, but All Over the Place proves that the Bangles were nobody's contrivance. "Hero Takes a Fall," "James," and "Tell Me" showcase Vicki Peterson and Susanna Hoffs's knack for hooks; and covers of the Merry-Go-Round's "Live" and Katrina and the Waves' "Going Down to Liverpool" give props to their heroes. All Over the Place never approached the sales figures of the band's subsequent albums, but the Bangles would never make a finer record. --Bill Crandall

Before their breakup in the late 80s, the Bangles released 3 albums. "All Over the Place" was the debut album of "The Bangles". This represents the pre-"Manic Monday" work by the Bangles. "All Over the Place" didn't have any Top 40 hits. In fact, this album is overshadowed by the hugely commercial "Different Light" and "Everything" albums, however this album should not be overlooked. This album represents as solid a debut album as anything and greatly benefits from the lack of commercialism on it. These tracks have some very nice lyrics and are complimented with superb instrumentation.
The Bangles aren't a band that just sings. The four female members each play an integral part to the music of the album. All four members do vocals and three members (Debbi Peterson, Vicki Peterson, Susanna Hoffs) actually do lead vocals (Michael Steele does background vocals). The members also play their own instruments: Hoffs and Vicki Peterson play guitars, Michael Steele plays Bass, and Debbi Peterson is the drummer. All songs except the Katrina and the Waves "Going Down to Liverpool" were written by the members of the band. While there is a perception that Susanna Hoffs is the lead vocalist, this really isn't the case on "All Over the Place". Vicki and Debbi do an outstanding job at lead vocals as well. Susanna is the lead vocalist on 4 tracks ("Hero Takes A Fall", "James", "Dover Beach", "He's Got a Secret"), Vicki is the lead vocalist on "All About You", "Restless", "Silent Treatment", Susanna and Vicki share leads on ("Tell Me") while Debbi and Vicki share lead vocals on "More Than Meets the Eye".

The first full length album released by the Bangles is still far and away the best. If you've never really heard the Bangles before, start here. Prior to "Manic Monday", "Walk Like an Egyptian", and -egads- "Eternal Flame", this was the way the Bangles sounded, and it was good. They had the perfect harmonies, a rougher edge and a slightly grungier style. Most songs on this disc were penned, in whole or part, by Vicki Peterson (the best songwriter in the group), two great covers sung by Debbi Peterson, but unfortunately no lead vocals by Michael Steele (the only drawback). The Bangles were at their best like this, when no one member was the main focus and the music was.

The reason why this album is so clever is that though recorded in the 80's it sounds nothing like the 1980's. If you remember that back then the airwaves abounded with Culture CLub, Duran Duran, Human League, Eurythmics, the Police you can see why the Bangles had nothing to do with the 80's. Except that they were women in a rock band. Since the Bangles, how many female rock bands (not pop vocal groups like the Spice Girls) have hit the Top Ten? How many have had the same success as the Bangles?This album has everything that was great about 60's music - though now written from a woman's point of view. Their harmonies (such as Live and Dover Beach) were immaculate, their lyrics sharp and witty (unfortunately their later original songs all lacked the punch and attitude of the songs here), their playing not great but adequate. They were a garage band after all, not supposed to be virtouso material. They harken back to the mid 60's in America and Britain when young people - however untalented - believed they could pick up a guitar and play and hundreds of garage bands were formed. Totally unpretentious, bursting with energy. In a world of MTV, million dollar videos and the great corporate machines that handle talent today, it's refreshing to hear the Bangles and think of a time when songs were this hip and this good. "Silent Treatment," "James", "Hero Takes a Fall" all written by Vicki Peterson and Sue Hoffs are some of the best tracks. It's a shame that their later "hits" were all covers because Peterson especially can write really good, well-crafted songs. The Bangles were aware that the power chord, the three guitar and drums combo, were the basic backbone of rock and because of this, like the Ramones, they could continue playing their music for decades since they weren't bound to a particular trend or sound. This is a must-have album!

I'm a Bangles fanatic and collector, so it comes as no surprise that I award this album 5 stars. The songs are totally brilliant! But what I really want to talk about is the various issues of this album I own. Firstly, this Cherry Pop re-issue has not been remastered. I've compared it to the original Columbia CD issued during the 80's and they are both identical in every way. Now this is where things take a strange turn: I'm so glad they haven't remastered this album for the UK market. I own the Japanese Columbia remaster and American Wounded Bird remaster, they both came out about the same time. The American and Japanese remasters are a total assault on your ear drums and are totally unlistenable through headphones, in fact it's painful. All Over The Place was originally mastered loud and at high frequency on the first CD issue anyway, it certainly didn't need pumping up anymore. Thankfully Cherry Pop have swiped the original master, put in some nice sleeve notes and the original B side to Hero Takes A Fall as a bonus track. So then, this is the one to own on CD. However, none of the CD issues of this album have ever used the vinyl mix. The correct mix! Time to dig out your record player. Crikey, being a Bangles fanatic is so complicated.
