It's an electronic 80s throwback album and the production is stellar. Gruff's voice works really nice with the production too. This album is a true gem.
"I Told Her In Alderaan" is my favorite. From the moment it begins, the 80s electronic melodies sound so pure it's hard to believe in came out in 2008 and not 1988. "I Lust U" is another great song. It's got a great dance beat and is just completely hypnotic. "Steel Your Girl" is a subtle, melodic gem. "Dream Girls" sports another incredible beat on the album with some 50s inspired vocal melodies. It's pretty good... I am just a big fan of this album. "Raquel" is like a pure 80s disco number. "Belfast" has an amazing melody to it. "Michael Douglas" is an atmospheric dance song.
All of those songs are stellar. There is something I don't like about this album, however. There are 3 songs on here that feature rapping. They just don't fit with the rest of this album and doesn't make much sense being here. I'll tell you what though, out of these songs, "Luxury Pool" isn't half bad.
These guys do an excellent job creating a homage to electronic and rock bands of the 80s who obviously influenced their direction such as The Cars, Depeche Mode, The Fixx and so on.
This album is awesome. It's as simple as that. I am completely blown away by it and am a giant fan of this act. I sincerely hope this is not the only album these guys will collaborate on because I just want more more more right now! Don't stop, please, give us more!
Neon Neon, for instance, utilized many instruments manufactured in the eighties to create the sound on their debut effort "Stainless Style". The record is a unique concept album conceived around the high-profile playboy lifestyle of John DeLorean.
The eighties tribute theme is noticably prevalent on the album's strongest tracks: "I Lust U", "Dream Cars", "Belfast", and "I Told Her On Alderaan". These tracks constantly pop up on my playlists over a year after discovering this album!
Unfortunately, the other half of the record is constructed with more pedestrian fare. Tracks like "Trick for Treat", "Luxury Pool", and "Sweat Shop" tread typical modern R&B blueprints with yawn-inducing results.
Still, this is a grand record well worth the purchase...and isn't that a sweet album cover?
The other reviewers have not mentioned that this is a CONCEPT ALBUM ABOUT CARMAKER JOHN DELOREAN. I cannot think of a more ridiculously awesome thing to make a concept album about, especially for dudes like me who: 1. grew up in the 80s 2. love cars 3. used to think the DeLorean was the pinnacle of cool cars during our childhood 4. love Back To The Future and so on.
I will agree with the other reviewers who say that the 3 hip-hop style tracks are totally out of place. Then again, I am not really a big fan of hip-hop. Regardless of that, the other tracks definitely garner this album five stars. The "Alderaan" song is possibly the most authenticly 80s-sounding non-80s song ever written - even more so than that M83 record that came out this year.
GET INTO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

High quality vinyl with beautiful artwork. I found it to be very aesthetically pleasing and nice to touch. The art is glossy and printed on a heavy sleeve. Read morePublished on February 28, 2012 by Steve
This album zooms off with a great start. The first song "Neon Theme" is a great instrumental intro. The following three songs are quite catchy and good as well. Read morePublished on January 15, 2009 by Brian Murphy
