Editorial Reviews

Pop icon Adam Ant is making his eagerly-awaited comeback with his first album and single in 17 years, a world tour and a film. The national treasure, who rose to fame as lead singer of post-punk group Adam and the Ants in the early 80s, before embarking on a hit solo career, earned ten UK top ten hits - including three number ones - and became a figurehead for the New Romantic movement in the UK. After overcoming a well-documented battle with depression and bi-polar disorder, the London legend has finally bounced back with the eagerly-awaited album - Adam Ant is The Blueblack Hussar Is Marrying The Gunner s Daughter.
His first single in 17 years, Cool Zombie will be fully released on November 19th - and the album will be released in on Monday 21st January.
The release will be supported by new movie, The Blueblack Hussar, produced by The Klaxons bassist Jamie Reynolds. Ant and his latest incarnation, Adam Ant and The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse are also taking in a sell-out tour of America, fresh from their successful tour of Australia.

Because I love Adam to death as well, I could never bring myself to give him one star for anything. But to be totally honest, everything one reviewer here (diitchqueen) said went through my head as well, listening to this for the first time. Yes, "Vince Taylor" was awesome live as was the rest of the recent kick-ass show I saw Adam do this past Fall. I expected the "studio" recording to rival "Ants Invasion" when I finally got a hold of it. Uhm, no.

This album is a collection of potentially wonderful songs... BUT... It is what should be the "bonus" disc of demos that came along with the final studio cuts version. I can't hear the confidence in Adam's voice that I am accustomed to. It sounds like they were still evolving. YES, he IS mumbling at times! Thank GOD they included the lyrics or I would not have been able to get through some of this. Don't give me that, "Oh, that's what the artist intended bull!" I have every demo Adam released with his various re-releases, etc. And I do enjoy hearing them -- taking them for what they are. You can hear the creativity taking form. And I totally hear it here in these new tracks. But all of his demos do not compare to the final cuts in my opinion.

These could all become little masterpieces, had someone been honest and made him go back and re-record it all. ALL OF IT. It needs a lot of polishing. I will still enjoy this album because it is Adam Ant. I've waited too many years for something new to not get as much out of it as I can. But I would never expect this to be enjoyed by anyone other than another blindly-devoted fan (the 5-star reviewers here). And I am glad they can too. However, my biggest fear is this will get so trashed that it prohibits Adam from putting out any more music.

He is still brilliant and that is still clear to me hearing this album. But most people will not get that. Oh, Adam... Please listen. I want to be able to still go see you and buy your albums for ANOTHER 30 years.

I'm not sure what all the negative fuss is all about over this album on the UK side. This is a great album by Adam. It has elements from all albums. There are a few gems here like "Cradle Your Hatred" "Stay in the Game" "Dirty Beast" and How Can I Say I Miss You". The haters talking about some these songs being bad demos, well there are a few that have that demo hissing sound, but I would like to think that is what he intended.

I personally like the whole album, some songs are different, but aren't a lot of his works this way? Even his most known albums took a few listens before people GOT IT!

I think this is a good return for him, and any return from Adam Ant is better than none at all. He still has it. I've listened in the car and on the headset and you hear something new each time you spin it. Just like the older works!

I was worried when I read all the negative reviews on the Amazon UK and not to mention the samples offered on Amazon and itunes did not give it justice. I am glad I bought it and didn't listen to the nay sayers. I love it! Welcome back Antmusic!

Several times during listening to this album for the first time and now the second, I couldn't help but think that it might have benefited Adam to put this record out with a different name. (Paul Westerberg sometimes puts out his harder rock under Grandpaboy, etc etc) I say that because if this had come out with an unrecognizable name, then probably everyone would have said who is this new artist, his stuff is great! Too many are comparing this to old Adam Ant and even worse trying to deem it a "comeback" album whatever the heck that means in the first place.

And no this is not the Adam Ant we all know and love as far as production and immediately catchy tunes. In fact, really the only recognizable aspect of any kind of Adam Ant is the quirky and enthusiastic back-up vocals with hollers, yells, and strange harmonies. Instead we have a record of 17 very diverse songs with lots of genres being explored within rock, punk, techno, and pop- the first song Cool Zombie even has slide guitar blues rock, something I don't remember hearing from him before. The subject matters of the songs are also nicely mixed but sticking mostly to the lustful and sensual topics we've come to expect from an artist whose music old and new has always been first and foremost, very sexy.

But overall this is a great listen especially if you like creative art and expression. As most all the reviews both professional and amateur mention, this album is all over the place (but so was Exile On Main Street and the White Album) and has a schizo feel to it which I personally find appealing.

If you are up for trying another flavor then dive in and enjoy Adam's latest offering. It's all there, the inventiveness, quirkiness, great tunes, excellent lyrics. I don't agree with all the hoo-hah about the production. This record has a style and feel all of its own. It's been made the way the artist wanted you to hear it.

To me the under production and rawness is in no way negative it is actually incredibly intimate, making you feel like you are sat in on the sessions. Adam is performing in your front room; can it get any better than that?

If you want shiny big screen Adam then this album isn't for you, go check out re-mastered previous albums.

Me, I like this flavor and am going to enjoy it for years to come just as I have Adam's previous offerings. Oh, and of course I look forward to the next flavor...

Don't leave it so long for the next one Adam.
