Editorial Reviews

2012 sophomore album from the platinum-selling British Alt-Rock duo. After achieving worldwide success with their debut album, We Started Nothing, the duo spent a relentless two years touring before eventually returning to the studio. Following a brief spell in Berlin where they recorded and subsequently ditched a whole batch of songs they weren't happy with, The Ting Tings packed their bags and landed in Southern Spain where they threw out the rule books and made music that made them happy.

This album comes with a download code.

"Sounds from Nowheresville" by The Ting Tings was quite a surprise. The surprise being that the album is one of the most innovative and also one of the best released albums in the past couple of years. "How did they do it," one might ask. They stepped outside of the box and put together a noncohesive masterwork with one common goal: To ignite the spirit of self expression, respect, and love.

1. Silence: 9.5/10 - It's tribal, euro funk laden beats underscores a repetitive chorus of "hold your tongue now, and let them all, listen to your silence." In our ever expressive world, it's hard to find a place of quiet. There are so many things crammed down our throats, impeding our thoughts, that it becomes a daily overload. This song puts "Silence" into the focus, and is an awesome opener to -

2. Hit Me Down Sunny: 10/10 - Marching drums, ringing church bells, snares going ballistic, now sprinkle some Spanish in there, and the result is a blistering anthem of keep your head up. When the picking, juke joint guitar starts it's strut through the middle of the song, I want to dance. Throw my middle finger into the wind of criticism, giving its negativity the royal salute it deserves. The last minute of this song is truly the genius of the Tings at work.

3. Hang it Up: 9/10 - Again the drums and lyrics make me march, pushes me to keep my head up. It swaggers through a pure funk ride. I find myself smiling every time I hear it. This is the 1st release from "Sounds From Nowheresville," a mighty fine choice. It's poppy and visceral at the same time. Again the last riff is genius.

4. Give it Back: 10/10 - This slow built banger is all about letting go. From the lyrics, The Tings went through some sheibe, and this tune lashes the wrongdoers in epic fashion.

I've been a fan of The Ting Tings since I first heard "Shut Up and Let Me Go". As soon as 2010 rolled by, I heard about their original second album, "Kunst"... but that was scrapped. Then early this year, I heard about "Sounds From Nowheresville", so today it was released and I finally sat through and listened to all the songs! Here's my ratings:

Silence - 7.5/10. It's not my favorite, but it's okay. It doesn't fit in with some of the other songs. It's not a very strong opener.

Hit Me Down Sonny - 10/10. I love this song, one of my favorites on the album.

Hang it Up - 10/10. My favorite from the album. It's so catchy... it's better than "That's Not My Name", IMHO.

Give it Back - 9/10. I like it. It's catchy.

Guggenheim - 7.9/10. I like this, it can get annoying... but it's okay.

Soul Killing - 9/10. I like this song too, they sound good doing regge-esc music.

One by One - 9/10. This song is pretty good, it reminds me of a left-over from "We Stated Nothing"... but it's actually better than some of that albums songs!

Day to Day - 10/10. I didn't like this at first, but the more I listened, the more I loved Kate's voice. It's nice to hear her do a ballad-ish song. It's very pretty.

Help - 8/10. Good song, but it kinda blends in.

In Your Life - 8/10. Same problem with "Help"... it just blends in, but it's pretty good.

So, all in all, the album isn't too bad. Honestly, I like it as a whole album more than "We Started Nothing"... plus, the album cover is going to be a classic!

If you're a fan of techno/punk/pop/regge, then pick it up, I'm sure you won't regret it!

I cant express how great this album really is. Not only are the sounds they incorporate very interesting and fresh, but lyrically its also rather inspirational. The Tings have truly grown in style and substance. I admit when I first started listening to this album I did not get it and told my friend it sounds like a bunch of noise. Now I enjoy it as much as their first one.

I seen the "Ting Tings" on Saturday Night Live a couple years ago and really liked them. I bought their CD ( We Started Nothing) the next day. I liked the whole album, every song infact. Especially tracks 2 and 5. I'm in my mid 60's (eewww I know) but this is NOTHING like the first album, completely different style. If you're into "Rap", you may like it, but I'm not

I preordered as soon as this album became available, and received it yesterday. I'm listening to it now. My impressions usually change after I've listened to the album a few times, but here are my first impressions:

As I listened through the album, I discovered a few gems. Soul Killing is my favorite. The beat is really compelling and interesting, and there is some digital sampling mixed in as part of the "percussive contribution" that's almost genius, it's so good. The song starts out with a creaking sound (I'm thinking bed? sex?). The creaking continues at the end and it sounds like a door that maybe a bored kid is playing with. The final creak sounds final, and ends the song. It makes you wonder what the meaning of the song is, and I found it very intriguing.

One By One is catchy and pulls you in. But it starts to feel repetitive and drags on too long. I can't crank the stereo right now because there are people asleep. But I think it would sound good cranked, as part of a party mix, maybe.

Some of the songs are truly lame. Day By Day stands out in that respect. You can see she's experimenting (and that should be a good thing), but there are too many kiddie-pop artists already. This song could have been performed just as badly by any of them. I don't find myself liking most of the experimental stuff, but I may feel different later and her other fans may love it. "In your life" is dark, and slow. Definitely not part of the original formula, which should be OK. But the whole song seems like the intro to a song that was never played. And I found myself waiting for the song to start.

In the end, I am glad I bought the album. I hope I find myself liking more of it as I continue to listen. But I think history may prove this to be the Ting Ting's worst album.
