4.0 out of 5 stars Dance-Along-A-Ditto 31 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
This one sort-of slipped by when I wasn't watching. I'm a big
fan of Ms Ditto's voice and refreshingly unaffected persona.

This little sidestep from her work with Gossip finds her
collaborating with Simian Mobile Disco on four perky tracks.
The temporary marriage suits her well. Her larynx is somewhat
reigned-in; things are less full-on than usual; the discipline
is not a constraint however. What a very fine singer she is!

The four songs are much of a muchness truth-be-told. SMD's
schtick provides Ms Ditto with a dance-friendly platform on
which to shimmy and shake and warble happily. 'I Wrote The Book'
put me in mind of 'Deadline For My Memories' era Billie Ray Martin;
soulful electro-pop to set your toes and teeth tapping in time.
The spirit of Ms Ciccone watches (somewhat tight-lipped) from the
wings on 'Good Night Good Morning'. The eighties Human League-ish
beats of 'Open Heart Surgery' bubble and bleep in a perfectly
pleasant way and 'Do You Need Someone' rounds things off in
fine stripped-down funky style with Ms Ditto showing off a strong
upper register and a curiously cute vibrato. A worthy Disco Diva!

5.0 out of 5 stars More please! 21 Mar 2011
By Basil
Format:MP3 Download
I'm a very recent listener of Beth's work and really chanced upon this by accident after downloading the Gossip album Music For Men. Now, this little collection of songs is very different from that album. Beth sings with a different kind of voice and the instrumentation by Simian Mobile Disco is just awesome.

If you like clever electro, give this a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE! 7 July 2011
Format:MP3 Download
I love the fact that Beth Ditto has sidelined this little dance E.P. It works really well as a stand alone project away from Gossip. Good for getting ready to go out to :) Only problem is that it is an e.p, therefore not long enough!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poppy, not like The Gossip 4 Aug 2013
By alsion
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Beth Ditto's voice in the Gossip, she is such a powerful force and has a fantastic stage presence. I was excited to get some of her solo stuff - thought it would be a welcome change from the Gossip, which can sound a bit samey after a while. However, I was really disappointed with this. Had to force myself to listen to the end, and then again to check whether it was a grower... but no. It just sounds like any old generic chart pop. Her voice has none of the power and feeling of the Gossip. Sounds sanitised (is this a result of the production?) I rarely get rid of CDs but this one will be going straight to the charity shop. Very disappointed.
