Product Description

The re-issues continue with albums 4 and 5. Karl Wallinger defined the ornate, Beatlesque World Party sound on their debut Private Revolution, and he never strayed from that blueprint over the next decade, even if he augmented it with other '60s and '70s pop flourishes. Egyptology finds Wallinger at his most conservative, sticking to the basic late-'60s pop and psychedelia that distinguished Private Revolution and Goodbye Jumbo. As always, his production is tasteful and subtle, revealing new layers of sonic detail on each listen, and his songcraft is sturdy and tuneful, if not remarkable. There are no weak moments on the record. It's not flashy or extravagant, and it delivers a collection of fine pop tunes without pretension, and that alone makes it a better album than the ambitious Bang!. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Karl Wallinger and his World Party were one of the best things happening in music in the late-eighties. After the well-deserved fuss made over Private Revolution and Goodbye Jumbo, and the chart success of the rather patchy follow-up 'Bang!', this their fourth record seems to have been unfairly-ignored, save for 'She's the One' which Guy Chambers pinched, backing band 'n all, for Robbie Williams. Rest assured that this record contains songs of the same quality; it's delight to come back to it after all these years.

I was one of a fortunate crowd of 400 or more who watched and listened to the most exiting revamp of world party.They were live on stage at the student union in manchester on 27/09/00.The tracks off the new cd Eygyptology were mind blowing back to goodbye jumbo days(bye far thier greatest achievment to date)and one which has kept me going to all thier manchester gigs.I was so engulfed in the new tracks, it was as though i had written the lyrics myself.if you like to mellow out and get into the vibe this is definately another Karl wallinger gold medal album!

Many good albums have a common theme which makes them samey. This does not apply to this great collection of pop songs. Karl has taken his time to put some original tunes together and with goo dproduction makes an album that it is hard to get bored of.

If you bought this the first time round do not bother replacing it with the so called 'Enhanced' version. The internet link that can be accessed by putting the CD in your computer no longer works. The music has not been remastered, the artwork is exactly the same so there is nothing to be gained by acquiring this version.
World Party are one of my favourite bands of all time and this album is great, I just feel I that have been conned into buying the same CD twice. This is a pretty shabby way to treat loyal fans.
