Ghosts of Download:
Ever since Blondie's musical excursions into mostly electronic/pop heavy material commencing with "The Curse of Blondie" and the previous most recent release "Panic of Girls", the results have been mixed and were reminiscent of the uneven results that were "Autoamerican" and "The Hunter". There were some good tunes on all the aforementioned albums however none were cohesive sounding albums. I am thrilled to say that this is not the case with "Ghosts of Download". The album opens with with the electronic/cumbia hybrid "Sugar on the Side" where we find the heroine of the song dismissing an unappreciative lover with convincing post feminist sass. "Rave" follows with a propulsive chipper beat with forever young at heart vocals from Debbie Harry without ever sounding desperate or cliche. "A Rose By Any Name" is updated classic new wave and Beth Ditto's vocals really compliment Debbie Harry's and the song is totally infectious. One of my personal favorites "I Want to Drag You Around " and "I Screwed Up" are mid-tempo numbers that find our heroine in a more pensive reflective mood accompanied by electronic reggae beats. The surprise for me on this release is Blondie's remake of "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. The remake begins with a chorus of ethereal female voices accompanying Debbie Harry's lead vocals and then slowly starts an epic crescendo to the pay off which bursts into a fabulous dance number. The CD deluxe edition concludes with "Backroom" however the digital deluxe comes with three bonus tracks ending with a fantastic ballad called "Prism". The bonus tracks are worth getting as it enhances the album and does not disrupt the cohesion of the album.

Those always unpredictable punksters are at it again. After spending most of their post-1999 career cementing the fact that they are indeed a rock and roll band with pretty much rock and roll albums (complete with their trademark forays into every other genre imaginable), BLONDIE return with a full fledged pop/dance album! Basically spitting on those who view anything less than rock as uncool... And seriously what could be more punk than that?

In one of their most cohesive collections since Parallel Lines, BLONDIE trade in their world tracks, and rock anthems for an energetic, fun, catchy collection of songs that not only sound great but also fit in quite well with their back catalogue. All you "Call Me/Tide is High/Heart of Glass/Atomic" fans who felt neglected by their previous 3 albums .... This one's especially for you! ... Debbie Harry, who is single handedly changing what it means to be 68 years old, purrs, coos and woos her way through the tracks, sounding as icy cool as ever and proving there's no need to fade away and radiate just because you're well into your 7th decade.

The "redux" versions of the classics? No updates could possibly hold a snowballs' chance in Hawaii against the power, energy and nostalgia that the originals carry - Just think of those as a bonus! Concentrate instead on those new fizzy pop delicacies that BLONDIE are well known for. The digital release contains 3 extra tracks that rival anything on the album, especially the sumptuous outer-spacey ballad "Prism"...so make sure you get those somehow, if you pick up the physical CD.

5 stars for the new "Ghosts of Download" album and especially the 2CD/1DVD deluxe package, with its terrific extras and collectibles, but here's an odd thing: I ordered this two days prior to its release, on May 11th, and just got it today, June 2nd. Why would Amazon be out of hard copies before the album is even released? Add to that they contacted me about being out of stock and offered to cancel my order if I didn't want to wait, and it makes you wonder how many people did cancel their orders and how much it affected sales figures for the album on the charts. Most importantly, though, I love the album of new music, "Ghosts of Download," and find it getting better with every listen. I don't have a weak track--the album flows well, especially as a dance music album, and I wouldn't change a thing. Happened to hear a couple of tracks online that weren't included in the final album, and, while I liked them, too, they definitely would not have fit in the flow of the finished album. My favorite track is "Mile High," and I hope to see Debbie and the boys perform it live soon--it just fits a live show atmosphere perfectly, right down to the "ooooooooohhhhhhh" chants and the giggle, which will undoubtedly become "crowd singing with Debbie" moments live in concert. So far, this is my "Summer of '14" album--perfect car travel and dance music...

This is for the new material, not the re-worked hits.

The band is tight and the production is spot on here and the stand out tracks prove why they're still relevant 40 years into their career. Rave, Make A way, Prism and Euphoria are some of the best songs they've put out since The Curse of Blondie.

Unfortunately, some of the new stuff falls flat due to lackluster lyrics. A Rose By Any Nam and Sugar On The Side have the hooks, but the lyrics, while trying to be campy, come off trite, especially coming from a band that are all approaching 70.

A solid three stars, because if you're a fan like myself, the standout tracks are a must have in your Blondie collection.
