5.0 out of 5 stars BANG BANG BANG June 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What a masterpiece. The opening country tinged "Kingdom Come" gets things off on the right foot. Other classic cuts are the soulful ballad "What Is Love All About", the blistering rock funk tune "Give It All Away", The smmoth and funky "Hollywood", the bizzare "Radio Days" and "Rescue Me". All the other cuts are great also. This along with Goodbye Jumbo is World Party at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it's World Party's best December 27, 2005
By Mark T
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. It's funky, mellow, spacy, rockin, bluesy--often within the same song. A great buy if you can find it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro never sounded so good October 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This release has something for everyone. Hard edged 90's grunge styled rock (Give It Away, Radio Days), Funky soulful tracks (Hollywood, What Is Love All About), folk based ballads (Is It Like Today, Sooner or Later), and even a little Celtic inspired folk (Kingdom Come). All of it extremely catchy and excellently performed.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is really good July 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this 1993 album second-hand in Seattle recently on the strength of a half-remembered, decade-old rave review I'd read in a music journal and I was delighted to discover what a good album this is. I particularly like the song Is It Like Today. This is a really terrific song, and it's message is relected in several other environmentally-conscious statements here, such as the brief, blunt And God Said.Welshman Karl Wallinger is World Party, and he is a truly multi-talented musician whose many styles are in evidence on this record. Really good for those who like well-produced, intelligent pop/rock songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best! August 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Karl's best. He is one of my favorite artists writing the most tuneful, melodic gems. Intelligent, thoughtful what can I say? Get all his work there's not one bad album in all of them. I am a member of his World Party.. He is back now from his an aneurysm (brain). He couldn't speak for a long time. I am looking forward to his new album. If you like great rock and roll look no further than World Party.

5.0 out of 5 stars More experimental, still great December 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is usually one of the lower-reviewed of his albums, but it may be my favorite -- it's probably the one that goes the farthest beyond traditional folk-rock into dance and funk (meaning, drum machines). Amazing variety of styles on one album -- you hear the usual influences mentioned for World Party loud and clear here (the Beatles, Dylan, Stones), but a few new ones are apparent. For some reason, World Party can come close to downright copying of styles (was that a bit of the Who's "Gettin in Tune" in there somewhere?), but I'm never bothered as I am with other bands like Oasis or Smashmouth. Probably has something to do with monumental talent...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous July 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I really love the breadth that this CD exhibits in World Party's talents. The first song will knock your socks off the way the energy builds from the beginning to the end of the song. Of course, Is It Like Today, is a timeless classic that carries one away to a different time and place. I especially liked the environmentally responsible message that the entire CD sends. Well done!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it like today
I really only bought this disc for the song "Is it like today". Wow! I can't get it out of my head! The rest of the album is pretty good as well.

This album is amazing. The music is uplifting and dreamy, while the lyrics are melancholic and poignant, painting a bittersweet portrait of a world racing towards its own doom. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok.
I remember my first exposure to World Party was seeing them open for 10,000 Maniacs in 1993. What caught my ear the most was "Is It Like Today", and so I picked up "Bang". Read more
