Editorial Reviews

2007 album from the British duo of Sean Hennessey and Jessie Banks. Stay Up Forever sees Chungking taking an exciting new direction. This Electropop band has been described as 'Goldfrapp, Blondie and the Banshees meeting the Twisted Scissor Sisters down the discothèque'. It's a celebration of how the best Pop need not be obvious in order to be immediate. 12 tracks including the first single 'Love Is Here to Stay.'. Institute.

As a fan of Chungking's addictive songs: World of a Thousand Suns and Voodoo, these left me waiting for the next album. In comparison, this new album seems a bit different. It's a little more upbeat, and it seems to deviate from the usual chill, easy-going feel of the above mentioned songs. At first, it took me a bit, after going through all of the songs to be satisfied with the cd, but overrall this a good, cohesive album.

Perhaps the best tracks are Love Is Here To Stay, followed by Ticking, I Love You, and Itch Scratch with their crisp, steady sound. I Love You is very intoxicating, great to sit back and chill to. And give Baby a chance, it gets better after a few verses. The more and more that I listened to it, I began to liken this perhaps new sound to that of Goldfrapp, in particular Love Is Here To Stay--this sort of equated Goldfrapp's Ooh La La from the Supernature album. And yet, there are still some echos of that sort of 70's-ish vibe that alludes to some of their older songs such as World of a Thousand Suns.

The album art reminds me of some mid-late eighties Peter Gabriel video.

A fan of their first album? Then if you are open to change then you probably accepted the style, with most songs being a tighter, upbeat, and accessible 'Voodoo.' Look at their promo/myspace pix; they're having so much fun, and they didn't want to stay in the melancholy vibe forever. It's still as creative as their last album in my opinion. The beauty is all still there. This is the album that Goldfrapp's "Supernature" really should've been.

Being a fan of Euro electro-pop, this record sounded like a sure thing. Several great reviews in the press, beautiful female vocalist, a production credit by none other than Richard X pretty much guaranteed my interest. Sadly, STAY UP FOREVER fails to live up to the hype. The album has an '80s sound with synths pulsing and bleeping and the songs sport a few catchy choruses, but there never seems to be much of a song attached to the hook. Worse still, "Slow It Down", the Richard X track is a forgettable rehash of Kylie's "Slow" minus the erotic heat. Save your money and save up for Dragonette's import GALORE which covers similar territory with breathtaking results.

There must be a curse on second albums. Seems like CK went for the safety of sounding like a genre. 1st album was creative and diffentiated CK from others. Again - this one is too safe. Hopefully they'll keep at it and re-discover the zone or at least realize what they're capable of.
