This is the album that Amy Winehouse would have made if she could sing (or stay straight, whichever came first). Unlike Noisettes' earlier releases, which emphasized the punk side of a punk-soul mix, Wild Young Hearts beats a path straight to Motown's door, stopping to pick up a Blondie wig along the way. A little bit schizophrenic, but jumping with unbridled joy, Wild Young Hearts beats a disco rhythm one minute ("Don't Upset the Rhythm") and Bristol-like stomp ("Never Forget You") the next. An unpretentious breath of fresh air, singer / bassist Shingai Shoniwa will snap up your eyelids and feet alike. Wild Young Hearts is simply irresistible.

This is such a cool sounding album, a little this, a little that. Some early No Doubt twisted with Classic Soul. I don't know what to call this album. Sultry Punk?, I am so in love

The lead female vocalist has a unique, very-rare sound. Her music is free flowing and almost sounds vintage. She is very similar in looks and style as Janelle Monae. When a reviewer of her album listens to the music and watches her music videos, they get a taste of what she wants to put out there to the world. Strictly listening to her album may make a listener think, 'what is she talking about.' Her music video for Never Forget You is briliant. She has fun with words and finds a way to play them without being mainstream. Her greatest on here Don't Upset the Rhythm (Go Baby Go) and Saturday Night. There is only one "3 star" song. The rest are four and above. Her talent is unique which gives her 5 stars in my book.

I want to thank Sealinewuman for bringing this band to my attention when commenting on my review of V.V. Brown's `The Attic EP'. I had heard of The Noisettes, but I'd never really given them much attention. After devouring their latest album, `Wild Young Hearts', I'm ready to pounce all over `What's the Time Mr. Wolf'.

Once I do, I'll be sure to weigh in.

Grabbing at influences that range from funk to pop to R&B and hip-hop, to jazz and punk and even flares of country (Sometimes); The Noisettes have a deep pool to choose from, and while their influences may crop up here and there in subtle flourishes, they are recognizable and admirable, for they add layers of uniqueness to this album. I'm intrigued to get my hands on their debut album, for I have a feeling it may be even more diverse than this album (correct me if I'm wrong), and so I have this aching feeling I may even like that album more than I like this one.

But serious, I am dying to hear their stoned out take on `Hit Me Baby (One More Time)'!

The album opens strong, with `Wild Young Hearts' setting the tone and pace of the album (the funk throwback feel is the strongest influence on this album). I love the playfulness of the track. It lets you know right up front that this is a happy album. The band even made mention in interviews that this was an album about being young, no matter what you age, by the way you act; enjoying your life and having fun. `Wild Young Hearts' is a beautiful way to introduce that morale. `Don't Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go)' comes next, screaming 60's and proving even more exciting and engaging than `Wild Young Hearts'.

Pure disco brilliance.

The best track on the album, without any hesitation whatsoever, is `Never Forget You'.

For what it's worth, I first heard this album being played as bumper music behind a segment on NPR back in August. I was so intrigued by what I was hearing because it hit so hard and came instantly as the freshest and most mesmerizing music that I've heard in a long time. After I made a few phone calls, I was sent my very own copy and had it almost the next day. I've been listening to this almost constantly. And be warned it's so catchy, that you might think it a bit too catchy. I found myself hearing several songs in my head long after I had gone to bed. Unexplainably good.

What's probably the most obvious thing to say about this band / this record is that with the incredible amount of garbage floating around in the musical void they stand out so far that it's almost embarrassing how good they are, and all while doing it in a simple and natural manner. It's the first time I ever thought I'd ever hear a perfect blend of Diana Ross and The Sex Pistols. The sexual frustration on every track is almost palpable, too. So it's no mistake Shingai sings: "Damn this Wild Young Heart" and it's being fronted as the cover track.

My favourite cuts on the album are just about all of them. You can listen to this from start to finish and never think of hitting the forward or back buttons. You may find yourself obsessing on anyone of the songs though, without doubt. `Cheap Kicks' and '24 Hours' are my absolute favourites, even though the radio hits are brilliant all by themselves.
