I was eating breakfast at a local diner/music store in Seattle and this was playing in the background. I'd never heard it before and it had a definite re-infused eighties sound. I'm a cautious cd buyer, but it was such a good cd that I bought it on the spot. I've sinced loaned it to two of my music aficianado friends who also loved it. It's not compelling because the tracks are drop-dead gorgeous or demanding, and I don't think it has pretensions of either. It's just good mood music, slightly wistful at times with a great beat. I like it because I can put it on and still think about other things, but also find myself bopping along. So, if you like music that isn't challenging, but enjoyable, and you're missing the eighties, then I think this is a great cd for you.

If you think you died and went to heaven when you first heard Postal Service, then you'll relive that experience 10x over with Cut Copy.

Composed of mostly synth and guitars with danceable beats and a melancholic britpop-esque post-punk flair, I'd describe Cut Copy as "electro-synthpop-dance-rock." Recalling everything alternative 80's, you hear references to the best of Depeche Mode, The Smiths, New Order, Human League, mixed with a Daft Punk-ian shake of house-y funk.

All the tracks are incredibly, incredibly catchy--the kind that stay in your head for days. The kind you cry over because they're just so good.

My standout picks:

"Future" - you'll hear this track tearing it up at quite a few NYC/Bklyn bars and lounges. True electropop confection perfection, brilliantly produced. From the catchy "ahhh, ahhh ahhh" chorus to the sweet lil' blips and bleeps, brooding Sumner-like vocals, Marr-guitar styling--every 80s new wave band trying to make a comeback only WISHES they could have come out with this single.

"Saturdays" - Bouncy, bass-y, hooky, funky. Imagine roller-skating in a swirling discoball rink wearing striped tube socks, giant headphones, and shorts. Great contrast between the insouciant, cold, near-robotic vocals and the unabashed, juicy happiness of this 70's flavored electro-funk single.

"Saturdays (reprise)" - oh man. Pixies, Smiths, Interpol, Joy Division, Cure... this melancholy, somber, minor-key, acoustic version of the above track just KILLS it.

"Going Nowhere" - Cut Copy's best example of how dance and rock can co-exist, creating a frothy bassline and beat while retaining emotion, soul, and gritty depth. Makes you want to dance and cry at the same time.

recommended by a friend with superb taste, cut copy was a band i knew i would instantly be drawn to.

the album art was the initial indication.

mannequins. . .so hot right now. [and in the 80s]

daft punk-esque hooks, but distant dancing relatives- twice removed.

clearly new order and gary numan's estranged lovechild.

i love it. and so should you.

my advice: pick up this album, jump in your lamborghini, feather your hair, turn up your collar, splash on some polo, and head back to the time when reagan was king.

Better late than never, they say, and the applies for me with this band too. I discovered "Zonoscope" last year and was so impressed that I bought "In Ghost Colours" and was knocked out again, so I went and ordered this CD too. Yeah, another keeper! Cut Copy hasn't disappointed me yet. Consistently great albums, very danceable but with an acute pop sensibility too. As others have noted, these songs at times remind you of the glorious 80s electro-pop-dance sounds of bands like Depeche Mode, New Order, Human League, and even Propaganda ... but with a more modern twist. Real feel-good sounds. Keep it coming!

This is very special record. Following up from the more electronic debut 'I thought of numbers' this is huge leap forward for Cut Copy. It has electronic influnces and you can hear that throughout, but the best thing is, it rocks. I stuggle to file this music because it is so diverse. There are a lot different sounds that make up a Cut Copy track. The layering on one track gives way to something simple and attention grabbing on the next track. The composition of the album is special. I found 'Bright like neon love' inspiring in so many ways. It is pushing the boundaries between rock and dance, but in a cool way. This is something new and refreshing. If you like what the Rapture, Franz Ferdinand, the Liars and Phoenix are doing you should love this. In mentioning those bands, I have to say that Cut Copy goes beyond any of those in where the music is derived from. You may hear some Prince, Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, Joy Division, Guided by Voices and Bowie if you listen up. If you get a chance to see these guys live, grab it, otherwise you can make do with this peice of gold... gold I tell ya!

This CD arrived faster than I expected and it was in great condition. I don't see any point in buying one that is still in the plastic when used is just as good. The liner notes were in perfect condition and so was the jewel case, no dents or scratches at all. Plus I think this is the best Cut Copy album of them all, even though the new one Zonoscope is awesome. This one has the most hits <3 Love Cut Copy <3
