Editorial Reviews

After over 10 years, Future Bible Heroes return with Partygoing, which features 13 quick and catchy songs in their signature mix of dance-floor-filling club anthems and super-sad ballads. Their imaginative and playful antics with sound, synths and unconventional noises will sound familiar to fans of the Magnetic Fields.

not too many, and i just cannot think of any other singer/songwriters more prolific in the pop culture pantheon as mr. stephin merritt, continue their unstoppable quest, and that's what i'm calling it, to deliver strong pop album after stronger pop album. it's simply amazing the back catalogue this man, along with 'partgoing' songstress claudia gonson, bring to the zeitgeist on such a continuous basis. and of course, you guessed it, 'partygoing' is no exception. 16 looooong years on from their last proper album, the heroes still manage to deliver 13 amazingly hook-laden tracks of love, lust, longing, drugs, hope, despair, heartache and comraderie. i absolutely love this album, released at a time in the music business when so/too much absolute crap pervades and dominates. note to fbh: please do not take this long to deliever yet another pop/dance masterwork.

Took too long between FBH albums - wasn't sure the magic would still be there - but of course it is

So 11 years after the release of Eternal Youth, the Future Bible Heroes are back with Partygoing, a decent effort that for the most part is an improvement over their previous album.

Overall Partygoing is a solid album, with each song being catchy or interesting enough to not want to skip. This is the main problem for the entire album, though. While there aren't really any major duds for the most part, there also aren't any songs that really knock it out of the park. If you're looking for a "Hopeless" or an "I'm Lonely (And I Love It)" you're definitely not going to find it on here. It's sort of like an album full of B-grade songs that never evolved to become something better but were still definitely good enough to keep around.

It opens with the short but catchy "A Drink Is Just the Thing", where Claudia's lovely voice shines, and quickly moves through short, simple, often catchy songs that you'll want to replay immediately after the songs end. "Sadder than the Moon" and "Let's Go to Sleep (And Never Come Back)" are two of the better songs on the album that display some newer sounds that we haven't heard on previous albums.

"All I Care About Is You" is probably the strongest track on the album, and oddly enough, it's also the most cheerful. The heavy use of a ukulele makes it sound like it could fit in perfectly on a Magnetic Fields album. Other album highlights include the well-layered "Living, Loving, Partygoing" and the buzzes and whirls of the short but fast-paced "A New Kind of Town". "Love Is a Luxury I Can No Longer Afford" and "Digging My Own Grave" are other good, decent-sized gems hidden on the album.

There aren't really any "weak" tracks on the album, as every song has something catchy or quirky to boast about.

I like this one better than the previous album, but they're both good.
