Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the British Pop icon and former vocalist for Culture Club, his first artist album in more than 10 years. Ordinary Alien is an accomplished collection of tracks featuring Boy George and Kinky Roland's faultless mod-pop production. As songwriters and all-round creative entities, Boy George and Kinky Roland have worked closely over the past 15 years and Ordinary Alien is born out of this relationship - the pair are renowned for their seemingly never-ending surplus of quality material.

While Ordinary Alien tends to be light on lyrics in spots, you can't help but love the positive beat that runs throughout. As for my favorites, the reworked "Human Racing" is a nice touch, and I have to say that I absolutely am in love with the amped-up "Time Machine." Way to go Boy! Let's not keep your long-time fans waiting so long next time, eh?

Well George has done it again!!! He has put out another EXCELLENT electronic/dance record. Though most of the songs are not new at least not to hardcore fans. A handful of the songs have been complied over the past couple of years with long time producer Kinky Roland, the same producer who helped out George with his previous electro album Yum Yum under the guise of The Twin, one of George's alter egos. I would suggest checking it out it's definitely worth a listen. A number of the songs on this CD are different mixes then I've previously heard. Great choice on the selection of songs and mixes. George has so much extra material that's been unreleased over the years that I'm sure he could release a double CD. 2 of the songs, After Dark and Human Racing are from the Yum Yum record with Human Racing being a different mix. So if you're a lover of dance music pick this one up, it is worth the money.

I can't say just how thrilled I am to get another BG record after so many years.
My heart definitely skipped a beat when I held it in my hands the night I received it.
I felt just like a child on Christmas morning! Any true fan knows what it feels like. And it feels SO good...

I actually own the Brazilian edition, which has 13 songs, so this is the cd I'll be commenting on.

1)TURN 2 DUST (5.43) I still think the original version, produced by Kevan Frost, is the best. It's slower and you get to appreciate the song more. I admit that after hearing the original version, I ended up finding Kinky's remix (which saw the light of day years before the original) only reasonable. The new mix is somewhere in-between. It isn't as good as the original (I doubt any remix could be), but it's actually quite good and catchy. The song sounds very modern now. Well done, Kinky. You surpassed your own work.

2)YES WE CAN (6.30) Obama's election and inauguration happened over one year ago. People in America, particularly the gay community, are growing disappointed at him. I like him, but being the opposition is always easier than being the situation! Anyway, I think Kinky could have edited Obama's speech out. It makes the song sound a bit dated. To be honest, I never liked the speech anyway, especially because the song has more to do with G's personal problems than with Obama's election.

When OA is released in the USA, I feel it'd be a good business move (and there's NOTHING wrong with it!) to delete Obama's speech. It may upset G's Republican fans (and YES, he does have them) and may make his now not so happy Democrat fans feel he's trying to cash in.

YWC holds a special place in my heart because it was the song that made me look at G with fondness again.

Love this CD! Finally all of George's releases plus more on the one CD and great mixes! Standouts for me are turn to Dust, Amazing Grace, If I were you!! Some influences from The Twin, Yum Yum era! A fabulous cover of Fleetwood Mac's Go your own way also!! Would love to see a second CD release with more remixes on it!! Thanks George!

As a HUGE Boy George fan, I've got to say this is his best in ages!!! Every song is fantastic. Then again, how can you go wrong with Kinky??? This disc is not to be missed for all Boy George fans.

George has really done it again! I have downloaded most of these songs from singles he has released over the past few years and also including his album Yum Yum by his alter ego "the Twin". His voice is still very soulful and honest. I really enjoy this album and look forward to more music from George! From the first song to the last you will be dancing and having a great time.
