5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic follow up to LP1 13 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
This 2nd album by the all girl group is a major leap forward from LP1. This album is a touch more polished but all the better for it. It has great diversity and variety of pace but the tunes are super catchy and the girls still rock it when they want to. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good girl rock 1 Aug 2013

First heard one of their songs on an episode of gossip girl and decided to check out the album. I instantly fell in love with their strong female vibe.

This is a difficult band to review. There just isn't much you can say about them beyond their biography and what they sound like.

They are a French girl group garage band. The lead singer has a very sexy voice. They do great gang backing vocals. They also have a knack for pop songwriting.

The band are probably technically very accomplished, but I like to imagine they're stretching the limits of their primitive musicianship and are forever teetering on the brink of falling apart.

After that all I can say is they have recorded a great album that is very consistent (their debut LP1 is also very, very good). All but two and a half songs are in English on this album.

The track by track review system doesn't really work with this band. They are too consistent. Any praise or complaints can be applied to most of the other songs as well. This is my attempt at it anyway:

1. I Could Rob You 3:26 (8 out of 10 stars)
Made up of sections (guitar, gang vocals, quieter bit) in a slightly proggy way.

2. Barcelona 3:21 (8 out of 10 stars)
Great gang vocals. Excellent lyrics. Very pop.

3. Bitch 3:07 (8 out of 10 stars)
Good lyrics. I've always felt this track should have been used by Quentin Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds instead of Cat People (Putting Out Fire) by David Bowie.

4. Camera 2:26 (8 out of 10 stars)
Great vocals and music. In French with a lot of English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it 14 Aug 2009
By DJB
Format:Audio CD
Katty Besnard et al are a breath of fresh air, style vitality and panache. About Love is the second album by the band with the addition of Anas Vandevyvere on drums replacing Zazie Tavitian giving the Plastiscines a sense of being a proper 4 piece rock band.

This album sees genuine growth in song writing from the minimal garage rock of LP1 to 12 musically structured songs. The material has a more polished pop sound but has still retained some garage rock sensibilities resulting in a great second album. The single Barcelona is a stand out track and with the video directed by Marvin Scott Jarrett it is a fantastic ambassador for the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Suprised! 21 Aug 2009
By PR Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I came across this group by mistake, never knowing anything about this band from France. So I purchased the cd after hearing the sound bites on Amazon. These girls can Rock! I gave this cd a 5 star rating because this was better than I expected. "Barcelona" sounds like a sure hit, with it's catchy dance tempo. My other favorites are "I Could Rob You", "Bitch", the acoustic "I Am Down", "You're No Good" and "Coney Island". If they keep making music like this, they should be successful in the music world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Girls And Polished Garage Rock 9 Mar 2011
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"About Love" by The Plastiscines is a great combination of French beauty and well-executed garage rock. This album contains an alluring combination of French and English lyrics, good musicianship, clever writing, and a variety of musical styles. Like you might suspect from the title, the songs thematically revolve around love and relationships. The songs tend toward up-tempo rockers, and include everything from a smoking cover of "You're No Good" (though I could have done without the "hey, ho, hey" embellishment,) to the tasteful acoustic "I Am Down Tonight." My favorites are definitely the fast-paced rockers "Another Kiss," "Pas Avec Toi," and "Barcelona," which is audio dynamite.

The Plastiscines are native to Paris, and have been performing from a young age and are skilled musicians (one, bassist Louise Basilien, started off as a classically trained harpist!) I particularly loved the pairing of gravelly and brash instrumental parts with sweet and sultry lyrics, and think the finished album is a fine example of garage band ethos and girl band energy. This is an impressive album and while I'm not historically a fan of girl bands, I think this is a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2009 11 Sep 2009
By Leonardo Antoniazzi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is amazing! I thought YYY's 'Its Blitz' would be my favourite record this year, but then I heard The Plastiscines - and they know very well how to mix pop, rock, glam and fashion resulting in a glittering new-wave record! It's something really new to indie scene. I hope the next album has more songs in French, though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waxed! 19 July 2009
By ULTRA - Published on Amazon.com
"About Love" is the sophomore release from this french-rock band.

It's focused more on love and relationships than the band's debut album "LP1".

"About Love" is an americanized release from the french band. "LP1" was a lot more raw and rigid with a 70's rock sound.

"About Love" is groovy, polished, and commercial, Don't be surprised if you hear some of these songs on an epidode of MTV's "The Hills" because that's exactly what it sounds like (Not a bad thing).

Katty Besnard (Front Woman) sings in a softer tone than on the last album, putting forth more of a glossy popular appeal.

If you've already heard "Barcelona" it's basically a sample of what the rest of the album sounds like.

The band has revised and I don't think it was a bad idea at all. "About Love" is not the best but still acceptable and listenable.

"I Could Rob You" and "B!tch" are two favorites of mine along with the old 60's/70's pop hit that's been covered numerous times by several different artists "You're No Good".

"About Love" is a much better album "as a whole" than their debut. get it and find out for yourself.
