Upon hearing Kajagoogoo's biggest hit, "Too Shy," a person could easily dismiss them as another trendy 80's band in the fashion of peers like Duran Duran, ABC, and A Flock of Seagulls. You would be wrong, though, because the group may have been outrageous--for those times--in the looks department and had the overratedly cute frontman Limahl who I never particularly felt attracted to, they had good pop sensibilities in their new wave song structures and also displayed a knack for leaning toward contemporary jazz. Say what you will, Nick Beggs is a very good bass player, Limahl's relaxed and often quirky vocals bear a faint resemblance to Boz Scaggs, and Stuart Neale's keyboards really bring home the jazzy aspect of the group. Jez Strode is a competent drummer and Steve Askew has some great, funky riffs that gell with and enhance the other players. Simply put, Kajagoogoo was an underrated band who showed promise on White Feathers, and most Americans didn't stay around long enough to pick up their sophomore album, Islands, which is unbelievably great.

While WF is not my favorite Kajagoogoo album, it boasts great tracks aplenty and, if they sound a bit like Duran Duran, it's only because the album was produced by D2 keyboardist Nick Rhodes and their favorite producer Colin Thurston.

Best songs include "Too Shy" (but of course), but mostly because I love Stuart Neale's keyboards and Steve Askew's rhhthm guitar more than anything.

--"White Feathers" with its synth drum track and some really good guitar riffs.

--"Lies and Promises" is silly fun, and my niece always used to get the lyrics wrong ("Are your lies as good as your brother says?" LOL).

--"Kajagoogoo (Instrumental)" which is good, funky new wave/jazz and blues.

Yet another 80's band gone into oblivion and one you probably won't brag about listening to. But beneath all the funny hairdos, electronic drums, synthesizers and the slick studio sound (Colin Thurston and Duran Duran keyboard player Nick Rhodes produced), this band actually consists of gifted musicians. Especially the bass player Nick Beggs, whose fat'n'funky slap sound can be heard all over 'Ooh To Be Ah', 'Frayo' and the instrumental 'Kajagoogoo'. It's pure kitsch but very listenable, and you'll have to admit that these guys knew how to craft many a hummable tune. Who doesn't remember 'Too Shy', their catchy No.1 breakthrough? Too bad that the fans turned their backs on this band on their subsequent and more mature releases. Definitely still worth a listen.

The classic pop hit "Too Shy" is a great song: It boasts a foreboding intro, a throbbing bass line at the start and a quirky synthesizer before Limahl's androgynous "Hey girl!" wail kicks in. And of course, the repetative and breathy chorus makes the song. Amazingly, all the other songs on this obscure but outstanding album have the same intriguing musical elements.

Interestingly, the title track song, "White Feathers," might be better than "Too Shy," as is the case with other tunes on this record. On "White Feathers," Limahl nostalgically sings about the friends from his past, and belts out the noble, drunken, somehow romantic line, "One more shot and then down I go my lady, down I go just maybe." For such a young band at the time, Kajagoogoo put forth a weighty vibe when necessary.

Kajagoogoo, a new wave pop band to the tenth degree, were weird but good. The lads had a real sense of style and cool hooks all over. If you enjoy pristine pop music, your ears will perk up to every tune on this album. Some might condemn Kajagoogoo for its ultra-tight 1980s sound, stilted electric drums and the keyboardist's nonstop synth work. But you've got to hear this album for what it is; not all rock music is raging guitars, loud percussion and a screaming lead singer -- and this is coming from someone who loves hard rock music.

As for the songs, "Magician Man" contains a childlike curiosity for the profession it speaks of, with a chorus that features two separate lines oft repeated -- a trick this band was good at. The song "Kajagoogoo" (yes, the band named a song after itself) is a buoyant, high-energy affair as the band members spell out K-A-J-A-G-O-O-G-O-O like excited male cheerleaders at an '80s pep rally.

great cd. It's very unfortunate it was their first and last really quality album, in my opinion. Their last two albums, which feature Nick Beggs( bassist) on vocals, instead of Limahl, really stray from the really cool synthpop sound they have in "White Feathers". if you like the song "Too Shy" this is definitely the cd you should get, instead of the greatest hits. Not that the other songs are bad, they're just not the Kajagoogoo they are in "White Feathers". Every song is very unique and interesting and very good. One of my favorite albums.:)

Those who have a Kajagoogoo/Limahl greatest hits collection (and there are many variations out there) may have been disappointed by the other "singles" beyond the two classic synthpop gems "Too Shy" and "never ending story" and not bothered to explore the bands full length albums further. In terms of White Feathers, the band's only album with Limahl as vocalist, the other singles that show up on compilations, "ooh to be ah" and "hang on now", are the weakest tracks on this brilliant synthdance album. Their downtempo, more jazzy arrangements do not represent the sounds you'll find on this CD--classic early new wave synth sounds in the style of Men Without Hats, Our Daughter's Wedding, and early Depeche. "White Feathers", "Lies and Promises", "Magician Man", "Ergonomics", "This Car is Fast", and "Frayo" are uptempo dance gems, and the bonus track "Interview Rooms" has the Duran Duran influence other reviewers spoke of.

The direction the band took after Limahl's departure was quite different and the follow-up albums just do not have that early 80s 'synth sound' like this classic. This is definitely THE Kajagoogoo CD to have in your collection if you only own one.

While the bonus tracks are great to have, I just want to point out that while there is an instrumental version of Too Shy here AND what is labeled as "The Midnight Mix", this midnight is not the version I am familiar with--it is PREDOMINANTLY instrumental as well. Vocals don't kick in until there is barely a minute and a half left on the mix. For the full vocal midnight mix, you'll have to get your hands on a copy of the CD "Kajagoogoo & Limahl: The Singles."
