Editorial Reviews

Blondie has come a long way from CBGB s and the Bowery, having sold more than 40 million albums globally and repeatedly reaching the top of the charts over a course of four decades with such hits as 'One Way Or Another', 'Heart of Glass', 'Rapture and Maria'. In 2006 Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
On Panic of Girls, Blondie glances backward but resolutely moves forward, remaining keenly observant of street-level pop culture and continuing to find inspiration in the roiling musical melting pot of New York City. The core trio of vocalize Deborah Harry, guitarist Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke have embraced younger band-mates, collaborated with up-and-coming producers and discovered new songwriting partners while never merely chasing trends

I had written a review for the Fan Pack back in June and have listened to the cd everyday since. The cd not only grows but gets better with each listen . This is a more adult Blondie music sound than most of their previous cds. Most reviews from other sites or fans want Blondie to stick to one formula but that is not what the band is about. I call the cd more adult because it shows a depth that comes with age. The first part of the cd is the more tradtional Blondie sound - punk/new wave/ dance but there are the reggae songs that are also an influence from Chris Stein . The cd should in a normal world have at least 5 hit songs off this cd- What I Heard, Mother, The End The End, Love Doesn't Frighten Me At All and Sunday Smile. But dig deeper into the second half of the cd with more of the slower stuff like the amazing China Shoes- so well done it made Lady Gaga cry . The best song though does not appear on this version of the cd though- go on You Tube and look up The End Of The World- which was a bonus track off the German version- truly one of the best Harry/Stein songs that has ever been put on a Blondie cd. As a group that has been making music since 1974- most older or heritage bands (as they are called) do not seem to want to make music that would sit with some of their classic works or try to even want to make music that speaks to newer fans or just want to stay as close to the hits as possible. That is what makes Panic Of Girls so special- it is as varied and well thought out as any of the other Blondie lps from 1976-1982. I cannot say enough of how good this cd is because it makes me smile each time I hear the intro to The End The End- such pure joy and happiness in the music comes through each listen. I hope to hear more from this band in years to come and hope it will not be as hard to get their music out there as it was for this cd. Amazing to say the least. K

First, let me say, I saw Blondie live last week at Caesars Windsor and I was blown away by the show and Debbie who at 66 is still rocking. If you get to go catch them live , please do. The show was a five star event. As for the new cd, there are great songs that sound like old Blondie, full of powering drums and just plan fun, D-day is one of my favs, along withWhat I heard, and Love dosent frighten me, good fun pop songs, also Mother, with Debbie voice sounding better than ever, as for slower songs, Sunday Smile, China Shoes, and The End of the End are nice and enjoyable. It was interesting when they put the new song mixed in with the old in there live show, how well it all meshed. Its been many years for a release from Blondie, I am very happy with this cd. And very impressed with there live show, Debbie had so much energy and looking so pretty , it was hard to think that she is 66, this Icon of music still has it going on. Please get this cd, let support this band, and show them how much they mean to us as fans. Debbie I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE A TRUE ROCK BIRD. keep flying.

So I jumped the gun and got it shipped from the UK before it came out in the US..This album is a MUST have...it is fantastic! Debbie sounds amazing...the band sounds tighter than ever. There's a little bit of everything on this album, rock, reggae, pop, just great. Be sure to also check out the bonus tracks..."Horizontal Twist" is..along with "What I Heard," "D-Day," "Mother," and "Girlie Girlie"...absolutely classic Blondie at their best! Hopefully they won't wait too long to release another, because this is excellent. Can't wait to catch them live in Atlantic City!

You will read mixed reviews for this album. Blondie has big shoes to fill, wanting to move forward with material to be proud of while maintaining such an amazing legacy. This is Blondie afterall - the ones who started it all, blending great pop music with that untouchable Deborah Harry style that so many have copped over the years. Panic of Girls is the 9th studio album from Blondie over a span of 37 years; their last release was the highly critically acclaimed "The Curse of Blondie" in 2003. These fine crafstpeople are no slackers. In between, Deborah Harry has spent several years with a jazz outfit from NYC, the Jazz Passengers and has had a pretty impressive solo career realeasing her 4th studio solo album a few years back, another album I really love, "Necessary Evil". Sleeping Giant and Horizontal Twist are probably 2 of the greatest Blondie songs ever recorded but didn't make the cut to this release for reasons I will never understand. The lead single is "Mother" - Debbie's anthemic salute to one of her favourite hangout spots in NYC, the now defunct "Mother" nightclub. The musicianship and production on the album is probably the best Blondie has ever sounded; only to be topped by those incredible haunting angelic vocals that Ms. Harry has obviously nurtured and developed over the years. The songs are infectious throughout with "The End The End", "What I Heard" and "D:Day" just being a few examples of the perfect pop that I have come to expect from Blondie. Ms. Harry flexes her linguistics with a French tune "le Bleu" which might be ultimately my favourite but I stress, that's a hard choice to make.Read more ›

Why are we getting the 11 track CD?
I absolutely agree; "End of the World," "Sleeping Giant," "Horizontal Twist" and their cover of the Beatles' "Please Please Me" (now a 'bonus' track on the Japanese Edition!) should have ALL been included on the standard edition CD (perhaps replacing... Read More
