Biography

The cover of Blondie’s Panic Of Girls, the band’s ninth studio album, features the surreal hand-painted imagery of Dutch cult artist Chris Berens, whom guitarist Chris Stein sought out and commissioned to create the work. Its depiction of a kind of warped wonderland metaphorically suits Blondie at this juncture in its remarkable, 37 year-old career. The New York City-based sextet ...

GREATEST HITS: DELUXE REDUX / GHOSTS OF DOWNLOAD is a unique package containing 2 separate albums that salute both Blondie s past and their present. Greatest Hits: Deluxe Redux is a collection of the very best of Blondie revisited and recorded anew by the band over the past couple of years* while they were recording GHOSTS OF DOWNLOAD, a collection of brand new music aided and abetted by the some of the world s most unique artists headed up by BETH DITTO (The Gossip), MISS GUY, and the Columbian turntablists/hip hop collective SYSTEMA SOLAR.

Ghosts of Download:
Ever since Blondie's musical excursions into mostly electronic/pop heavy material commencing with "The Curse of Blondie" and the previous most recent release "Panic of Girls", the results have been mixed and were reminiscent of the uneven results that were "Autoamerican" and "The Hunter". There were some good tunes on all the aforementioned albums however none were cohesive sounding albums. I am thrilled to say that this is not the case with "Ghosts of Download". The album opens with with the electronic/cumbia hybrid "Sugar on the Side" where we find the heroine of the song dismissing an unappreciative lover with convincing post feminist sass. "Rave" follows with a propulsive chipper beat with forever young at heart vocals from Debbie Harry without ever sounding desperate or cliche. "A Rose By Any Name" is updated classic new wave and Beth Ditto's vocals really compliment Debbie Harry's and the song is totally infectious. One of my personal favorites "I Want to Drag You Around " and "I Screwed Up" are mid-tempo numbers that find our heroine in a more pensive reflective mood accompanied by electronic reggae beats. The surprise for me on this release is Blondie's remake of "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. The remake begins with a chorus of ethereal female voices accompanying Debbie Harry's lead vocals and then slowly starts an epic crescendo to the pay off which bursts into a fabulous dance number. The CD deluxe edition concludes with "Backroom" however the digital deluxe comes with three bonus tracks ending with a fantastic ballad called "Prism". The bonus tracks are worth getting as it enhances the album and does not disrupt the cohesion of the album.

Those always unpredictable punksters are at it again. After spending most of their post-1999 career cementing the fact that they are indeed a rock and roll band with pretty much rock and roll albums (complete with their trademark forays into every other genre imaginable), BLONDIE return with a full fledged pop/dance album! Basically spitting on those who view anything less than rock as uncool... And seriously what could be more punk than that?

In one of their most cohesive collections since Parallel Lines, BLONDIE trade in their world tracks, and rock anthems for a fun, catchy, summery collection of songs that not only sound great driving in your car with the windows down but also fit in quite well with their back catalogue. All you "Call Me/Tide is High/Heart of Glass/Atomic" fans who felt neglected by their previous 3 albums .... This one's especially for you! ... The "redux" versions of the classics? No updates could possibly hold a snowballs' chance in Hawaii against the power, energy and nostalgia that the originals carry - Just think of those as a bonus! Concentrate instead on those new fizzy pop delicacies that BLONDIE are well known for.

Within minutes of listening, you will most likely find yourself singing and humming these, only till recently, unknown songs.....then craving them! Debbie Harry, who is single handedly changing what it means to be 68 years old, purrs, coos and woos her way through the tracks, sounding as icy cool as ever and proving there's no need to fade away and radiate just because you're well into your 7th decade. She may not have died young, but she certainly stayed pretty and cool and groundbreaking and awesome!

The digital release contains 3 extra tracks that rival anything on the album, especially the sumptuous outer-spacey ballad "Prism"...so make sure you get those somehow, if you pick up the physical CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rivals Parallel Lines or Eat to the Beat May 20, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Blondie's only truly sub-par album was The Hunter in 1982, slapped together to meet a contract requirement. Since then Deborah Harry has released spotty solo albums (a really good one though is Def Dumb & Blonde, get it if you don't have it), and in the late 1990s Blondie staged a comeback with the album No Exit. Since then their albums have gotten increasingly better: Curse of Blondie was more disciplined and focused than No Exit, and Panic of Girls improved slightly over Curse.

Ghosts of Download though is something of a leap ahead. It's probably Blondie's best album since Eat to the Beat. The album is full of hooks and many of the songs here would be hits if Blondie were at their commercial height: "A Rose By Any Name", "Sugar On The Side", "Drag Me Around", "Rave", "Winter", "Mile High", and possibly "Take Me in the Night". That's 7 tracks out of 13 that sound like they could have been hits. "Rose" slinks along with a seductive groove; "Rave" and "Mile High" are quality dance tracks; "Sugar" is infectious latin pop; "Winter" sounds like classic Blondie and would have sounded right at home on 'Parallel Lines'; and "Take Me In The Night" is a catchy pure pop song.

Most of the remaining tracks are just as strong even when they don't sound like potential singles: "I Screwed Up", like many of the songs on this album, has a latin pop flavor. It features a rap done in Spanish by Los Rakas. "Euphoria" slinks along with a subtle hook and "Take It Back" revs up the dance floor with lyrics about a fight or a breakup.

To my ears "Make A Way" and "Backroom" don't work as well.

I agree. It has been a bit of a wait, esp. when you realize that they have 40 original tunes waiting to be released on different albums. I'm still reeling from the fact that PANIC OF GIRLS album didn't include all of the better unreleased songs from the sessions in a special edition CD. I know... Read More
