I'm really surprised to see the other reviewer's comments. Give it a listen, make your own decision
they are blues-punk-gospel and brilliant. i loved their other albums and was very excited when i heard of this one. and i was not in the least let down. beth sings so well it's staggering, brace plays guitar like no-one else, and kathi is a genius on the drums. this album is a little, and i do mean a little, more polished than the others but still has the punk sensibility as the others. there are very few bands that have albums that can function as a whole and as separate songs, but the gossip manages it brilliantly. and at the end listen for the "hidden" track after "light light sleep."
so go buy this now. it's worth every penny.
and also look out for their live cd coming out sometime in the fall on the dimmak label. they are one of the best, if not the best, live groups i have ever seen.
I bought this CD and was blown away by its simple, relentless energy.
Then I saw them the band live a few days later,
and I can honestly say that The Gossip is for real.
They rock with the same abandon as The Yeah Yeah Yeahs,
but Beth Ditto's soulful vocals give The Gossip's brand of rock a slightly different flavor.
Do yourself a favor and pick up this CD.
No No No will make you dance, Light Light Sleep and Nite will get inside you Beth gives it to you for reals....and that's just three...do yourself a favor and get this record

More like 3.5 stars really. It's good but I can't say it makes my favorites list. There's a few really really good songs though. Read morePublished on August 3, 2013 by Benjamin Kowalewski
As much as I love Beth Ditto's voice, I must concur with the detractors -- this is an inconsistent, incomplete album. Read morePublished on September 22, 2005 by Nadia555
