That's not to say you can't dance your a** off to this album - there are plenty of tracks designed to help you do just that. "Ooh" and "Paul McCartney" - perhaps the most hyper fan letter ever written to a Beatle - are both excellent reminders of why this band has the reputation it does. And the sole song sung by the totally fabulous Ana Matronic, "Kiss You Off," sounds like she's channeling Goldfrapp and Blondie at the same time - and with the driving beat and laid-back vocals, it works. Great lyrics too - "Kiss you off my lips/It's standing room only for a piece of my pigment/So excuse me a minute while I supply demand."
The lead single "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" is - and will be - ubiquitous, and deservedly so. With Elton John both contributing to the songwriting, and playing piano, and Jake Shears' disco falsetto, it's one of those rare songs that you like the more you hear it.Read more ›
The album starts off very strong with an infectious, catchy tune entitled "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'." Elton John is on piano! This title is immediately very ironic since this song is so upbeat, beautifully written and joyous that you WILL feel like dancing to it as early as a minute or two after the song starts! The second bonus CD features a re-mix of this song; but the version on the first CD will leave you restless to dance and panting for more.
Other great songs with awesome musical arrangements include "She's My Man;" "I Can't Decide;" "Land Of A Thousand Words" with its' dream-like, almost experimental/psychedelic musical intro; "Kiss You Off" which sounds like a mixture of pop and dance music and "Might Tell You Tonight" which reminded me of both The Bee Gees and some of Paul McCartney's earlier work from the 1970s. The final song, "Everybody Wants The Same Thing," appeals to the universal quest for happiness, doing the right thing for yourself, and sharing love. This song boasts a magnificent musical arrangement that ends the CD on a very strong note.Read more ›
THE OVERALL SOUND REMINDS ME OF:
the best of Elton John, Pet Shop Boys, George Michael, Abba, Times Two, a tinge of Go West, "Xanadu" (as Amazon.com so rightly puts it in their review) and even the harmony of the Beach Boys and Carpenters...
WHY YOU'LL LIKE IT SO MUCH:
Because you can dance AND listen! While the incredibly energetic, fun sound of disco is here and welcome, the often horrible lyrics that genre generated is most definitely (and with much relief!) missing.
TA-DAH IS THAT MOST RARE AND TREASURED OF ALBUMS:
the one where every track's either a winner or at least "not bad"!
AND THESE ARE JUST THE HIGHLIGHTS:
Track #1) "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'"--Do you remember the awful movie XANADU with the terrific soundtrack? This song reminds me of ELO and ONJ's collaboration on one of the most underappreciated soundtracks of the early 80s!!
Track #2) "She's My Man"--At the risk of implying Scissor Sisters borrows a lot from their favorite 70s idols, I've got to say this wonderful, quirky song reminds me so much of "Still Standing" by Elton John. (This is a good thing, though!)
Track #3) "I Can't Decide"--A great tongue-in-cheek song that reminds me of the Beatles if they were writing in the 21st century...any other song about killing someone would be totally out of line, but somehow it works here because...well...it's tongue-in-cheek of course!Read more ›
