Product Description

On his previous releases, Wallinger has displayed a social conscience, but never has it taken prominence like it does on Bang!, World Party's third album. Bang! does contain some glorious music that equals his masterpiece Goodbye Jumbo. Wallinger's preaching never obliterates the considerable pleasures of the music. Wallinger has often been accused of recycling the Beatles, but the truth is that he can combine the Beatles, Beach Boys, Sly Stone, Dylan, and Prince into a musical style that is distinctive and unique yet familiar. Bang!, for all of its shortcomings, is as strong an album as any Wallinger has released. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Format: Audio CD
The third album from Karl Wallingers' (ex Waterboys) new band World Party (following the excellent Private Revolution and Goodbye Jumbo ) in my opinion (and I could not explain why if asked!) does not quite live up to the heights reached in the previous two, although is still an album full of great "pop-with-meaning" songs. The Beatles and the Stones influences are still obvious, but this time, there is also a smattering of Prince, which complements the mix nicely, and is no bad thing.

Again, eco-warrier credentials are at the forefront, especially on the very short "...and God Said" ("and god said look after the planet, and man said .... you").

"Kingdom Come" and "Is it like today" are great pop songs in their own right, and like the previous two albums this has aged well, if not improved with time.

A welcome re-release of a great album, full of wonderful song writing and infectious melodies, but make sure you check out the other two as well!

I remember thinking when it came out that "World Party" were the UK's answer to REM... only much better.

This and their previous album "Goodbye Jumbo", I would recommend as essential purchases. The influences, such as Dylan, Prince, Beatles and Stones are obvious. However the song writing and melodies and hooks, overcome these comparisons enough to produce really original albums.

This is a grower of an album which stays in your memory, due largely to superb song writing.

And of course "Is it like Today" is one of the greatest songs of the decade.

This is their best album to date, while the others are good, taking a while to get into, this is top notch. Love every track, lot of style variations, top track 'Sooner or Later'. Buy, relax, enjoy ;o)

Take a look at the other reviews posted here and something comes across quite clearly. A wide range of tracks are identified as favourites. It's because BANG! has something to satisfy all tastes, from solid rocking (Give it all away) to achingly beautiful sentimentality (Sunshine), taking in a kaleidoscope of musical styles on the way. What links the diverse components is the ambitious creative writing and musicianship. By pushing the boundaries, Karl Wallinger admittedly produced something that wouldn't necessarily satisfy the fans of the first two albums, and I can appreciate that some reviewers think that he didn't quite get the disparate pieces to hang together as well as on Goodbye Jumbo. However, anyone who can combine elements at such opposite ends of the spectrum as a sample of Sir John Gielgud reciting Shakespeare and the use of the "F" work delivered in an operatic context (and get away with it!) deserves respect. Personally, I remain to be convinced that the overall achievement of this album doesn't slightly exceed that of its highly accomplished predecessor. Approach this album with an open mind and you'll reap the benefits for years to come.

The definitive versions of "Bang" "Goodbye Jumbo" and "Private Revolution" are the re-issues on the Papillon label. Sonically they blow away the previous Ensign cd's, they have much improved low end and so much more detail in the sound. Despite the fact they currently seem unavailable, keep searching - it's well worth it!

a timeless classic that was completely different to what I was listening to at the time, which was mostly golden era hip hop and baggy. i was instantly drawn to the fact that it could be played all the way through, over and over. and never got bored of. i would always namecheck this album when in pub discussions as a real hidden gem that should be acquired by anyone who would listen. strong melodies, conscious lyrics and hints of the beatles/elo type production shine through. one of my favourite lp's of all time, it just got right in there at a pivotal time in my personal life and is part of my musical development in terms of what I would look for out of my usual comfort zone. one that is due a lavish remaster in my opinion.

On this, the long-awaited follow up to the much acclaimed Goodbye Jumbo, Karl Wallinger not only continues to mine a particularly tunesome 60's style trough (if you can listen to Sunshine without hearing the Rolling Stones then I suggest you either extend your record collection or be sent to bed without supper)but explores soul funk and folk doffing his cap to both Troublefunk (Radio Days) and Prince (Rescue Me). Overall not as satisfying as Goodbye Jumbo but still well worth a listen if it's melodies to sing along to your after or simply something to put a smile on your face as you wait, frustratedly, for your eggs to boil.

NB. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A REVIEW OF THE WORLD PARTY ALBUM 'BANG' - I DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S COME UP AS BEING A REVIEW OF SOME OTHER ALBUM.

OK, maybe it faces competition from Teenage Fanclub's Howdy (and Songs From Northern Britain come to that), but Bang really does lay claim to being one of the very best albums of the nineties. It's a real rollercoaster ride of psychedelic pop, R&B, funk, folk, you name it, it's on there.

Think Beatles meets Dylan meets Stones meets Prince meets Funkadelic meets lots of other things, but all given a distinctive, highly individual spin.

It's worth the entrance price simply for the sublime Hollywood ("wouldn't she? Holly Wood!). Genius!
