Blondie has come a long way from CBGB s and the Bowery, having sold more than 40 million albums globally and repeatedly reaching the top of the charts over a course of four decades with such hits as 'One Way Or Another', 'Heart of Glass', 'Rapture and Maria'. In 2006 Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
On Panic of Girls, Blondie glances backward but resolutely moves forward, remaining keenly observant of street-level pop culture and continuing to find inspiration in the roiling musical melting pot of New York City. The core trio of vocalize Deborah Harry, guitarist Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke have embraced younger band-mates, collaborated with up-and-coming producers and discovered new songwriting partners while never merely chasing trends

PoG opens with the futuristically paranoid ("I'm ready to invade/What's left of your limited privacy") "D-Day".A favorite of mine from first listen.Then comes two very catchy anthems for a pre-Bloomberg NYC club scene of "Drama every night" ("What I Heard")and "Mother in the night calling you" ("Mother").They put life back to lifeless clubs where even smoking isnt allowed anymore.
Blondie are pros at doing the 1950's Phil Spector pop at this point,and "The End The End" is very lovely. "Girlie Girlie" is is great soundtrack to a lazy summer day with its a sunny island groove and sultry vocals. Debbie sounds like she is singing "Young money baby" to me (maybe Weezy can do the remix)."Love Doesn't Frighten Me" and "(Don't put) words in my mouth" are strong new wave songs that could have been big hits in the early 80's. "Words in my mouth" has interesting lyrical twists,and pretty catchy for an 'angry' song.Dont be suprised if it gets stuck in your head for days.
Blondie is not a band that seems to like being introspective.Instead of one of their best introspective songs ever,"End of the World" (a song Velvet underground could have written) closing the album,Blondie chose a cryptic song about... Debbie's shoes!.But this is a lovely airy song nontheless.
PoG is a suprisingly strong well produced album,and one of the years best releases.
Favorite tracks are D-Day, Mother, Le Blue, What I Heard, and Love Doesn't Frighten Me.
