Format: Audio CD
Alphabeat are a Danish group whose style of retro fun Pop sing-along music reminds me of Scissor Sisters, or The B-52s, especially on the Pop/Disco opening cut "Fantastic 6" with nonsensical lyrics even referencing that dreadful 80s movie "Seven from heaven".

At just 10 tracks (totalling under 37 minutes), the CD cuts right to the chase, they can't afford to slip up on any track and they don't. The bouncy Motown-ish "Fascination" (it does remind me of Bowie's "Modern love") was a UK top 10 hit.

All the songs sound so sunny and are incredibly catchy; "10,000 nights", the brilliant disco-tinged "Boyfriend" (the best song Madonna never made in the 80s), the similar groovy "Go go", the piano tinged Scissor Sister-channelling "What is happening", the shimmery synth driven "Touching me touching you" (very Human League), to the sombre synth ballad "Rubberboots" (very Pet Shop Boys).

Opening with a whistle is a rousing version of PIL's "Public image", and closing is the stripped ballad "Nothing but my baby".

Like I stated in my title, it's the 80s all over again, and I like it.

Just one song is worth listening to, songs were generic, no originality, didn't like the majority of the selections, sounded like a typical copy band with exception the, "touch me touching you".

If happy, upbeat, and cheerful music isn't your thing then prepare yourself to be converted, cause thats just how good Alphabeat is. This group has completely captivated me and my friends and I couldn't suggest purchasing this album more. Priced at an average $15 range, its a steal and I would venture to say you won't regret it. If you're not familiar with their songs try looking them up on Facebook, YouTube, or Grooveshark before committing to buying the album.

This CD is definitely 80s inspired and has super fun and upbeat tracks mixed with some sappy love songs that are sure to get your heart throbbing. Trying to compare this group to another artist is a bit difficult since they really are their own voice. I strongly recommend purchasing this album as they are unlike any group right now in the USA. If I had to sum this album up in one word it would be "HAPPY" and we all know thats not a bad thing right?

This is such a great album, it has everything I love about todays music mixed up with the style and emotion of the 80s and early 90s. Alphabeat not only sounds amazing but they look great! I love their style. I wish more bands were like this. The songs on this album are all catchy and you will be listening to them over and over and perhaps even singing them without even knowing! This is a must have album that anyone can enjoy.

I saw this group on the Graham Norton show and immediately fell in love with this group. I've since purchased the CD and can't stop listening to it. What a terrific CD! If you like 80's pop or Euro-pop, this is for you. You will not be disappointed!

...now if only I could get all these songs out of my head. Especially "Boyfriend" which is super catchy. Totally 80s, but totally now. I would recommend this for anyone who just loves pop music and is ready to be put in a good mood!
