Product Description

BBC Review

There’s just no skirting around it. Neglecting to mention that this self-styled ‘fantasy pop’ trio from LA owe a massive, almost unquantifiable debt to ABBA would see us failing to tell you what Music Go Music sound like. If it isn’t enough that their bass player employs a Scandinavian-like alias in the form of Torg, this debut album is a spangly, fist-pumping, jumpsuit-clad celebration of the Swedish pop titans’ genius.

In much the same way The Darkness’ terrific first album was an unashamed, balls-out tribute to their favourite hard-rock bands, Expressions, a collection of Music Go Music’s first three EPs, serves a similar purpose for fans of saccharine power-pop. It’s the logical next-step for a band of otherwise serious alt-rock types that are known to belt out the gold-plated choruses of Waterloo and ELO’s Mr Blue Sky in LA’s karaoke bars.

But it’s no joke, this. Music Go Music’s members might use pseudonyms – Gala Bell (vocals) and Kamer Maza (keyboards) join their Northern European-themed bass player – but Expressions is a genuinely heartfelt and properly soulful evocation of their love for the Swedes and a bygone era of pristine bubblegum pop that gave the world Blondie, The Carpenters and ELO. With a propulsive sound that’s this uplifting it would be churlish to worry about such boring things as authenticity, but Music Go Music really do make it their own – and without a single tongue in cheek.

Bell’s vocals are mountain-fresh like Frida and Agnetha’s and the songs they’ve written are walloping feel-good anthems with the sort of cacophonous choruses that would knock Mika and The Feeling into the middle of next week. Warm in the Shadows is an epic nine-minute workout that sees bubbling electro and strutting punk-funk refracted through the mind of Benny and Björn; Reach Out is almost proggy glam-funk, the sort of song Jeff Wayne would be proud of; and Light of Love is an infectious riot of handclaps and supremely cheesey synths that wouldn’t sound out of place on Voulez-Vous.

Everyone – ABBA fanatics, closet fans that just won’t admit how much they loved Mamma Mia!, even death metal nuts – should adore this. If not, you need to get yourself to your local GP. --Chris Parkin

5.0 out of 5 stars simply fab! 19 Oct 2009
By Chopin
Format:Audio CD
It's not easy to find such good bands these days. If you like Blondie and ABBA, you won't be disappointed. Really good bunch of high quality pop songs. The most upbeat are: Explorers of the Heart; Just Me; Light of Love. However, the disco-style 'Warm in the Shadows' is simply fab - love the rythm - it's so 80s and so cool!

5.0 out of 5 stars A breathtaking debut 17 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you drew a line between Abba and REM, at the mid-point you would find Music Go Music. That is clearly a good place to be. I discovered them on YouTube, took the plunge and ordered this CD. I can't remember the last time I bought an album that had no duff tracks on it. Credit to their indie label, Secretly Canadian, as the major labels wouldn't permit this, fearing that we would be getting more for our money than we deserved.

'Expressions' contains all the tracks released on three vinyl EPs, 2008-2009. The title tracks of these, 'Light of Love', 'Warm in the Shadows' and 'Reach Out' are all excellent, but if pushed, I'd go with the wonderfully anthemic 'Just Me' as a debut CD single, following it up with 'Explorers Of The Heart'. I'm nit-picking. There are no 'B-Side' singles on here.

This is a quirky group with a fresh, melodic and characteristic sound. You will be tapping your feet and nodding your head like an idiot on your morning commute or at your PC and you won't need to shuffle. If you associate indie with 'weird', Don't Panic. Music Go Music have already developed a mature and coherent style. Their lyrical and musical skills are easily as good as any established mainstream group. And the icing on the cake, they have a beautiful lead vocalist with a fabulous voice. They will be massive, certainly in the UK if not globally.

Forget reality TV, celebs who decide they want to be singers and all that X-Factor rubbish, this is the real deal.

Music Go Music are not an early work in progress that need to find their place in the musical universe. They are already there. You just haven't heard of them yet. You most assuredly will. A majestic CD. Blissful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissful... sheer, unadulterated pleasure! 5 July 2010
By Chintan Nanavati VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I've lived with most of these songs for nearly a year now. I chanced across Warm in the Shadows on youtube and was instantly entranced by the whole vibe, by the wonderfully tunesome, funkadelic, epic-disco feel of the whole thing. And the musicianship was impressively tight. (MGM's shred-a-delic guitarist Torg, I was later unsurprised to learn, was a Bay Area thrasher in a former incarnation!) After lapping up several more songs on youtube, it quickly became apparent that MGM would become one of my favourite bands in next-to-no time. Yes, there were hints of Blondie and Abba and the Carpenters and... erm... Black Sabbath and early 80s Bollywood disco(!). But MGM are far, far more than a derivative hybrid of all those influences/predecessors. They've distilled the essence of what made some of that music great and compacted it into the most joyous album I can think of. (Although Abba Gold runs it close!) Seriously, if you need music to lift your mood, you cannot do better than MGM. The album twists and turns and surprises and delights and bamboozles. And I say this even though I feel the production doesn't do the songs justice. I saw them live at the ICA in London last September and they were amazing in spite of some dodgy acoustics. And Gala Bell - aka Meredith Metcalf - is an infectiously happy frontwoman whose voice is a welcome antidote to all that depressive, angst-ridden music that seems so popular these days. (I speak as a long-standing fan of Heavy Metal in all its guises and other depressive music too!) MGM weave a spell in the live arena which absolutely bewitches. And this is no mean feat when you consider the multi-layered complexity of the songs.
And what songs! Each and every one is a classic. Absolutely no filler. And it all seems so effortless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best! 29 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
I don't often write reviews, but this album deserves one.

Quite simply, it is one of the best pop albums ever made...from the swirling joy of "Thousand Crazy Nights" through the Eurotastic "Light of Love" to Studio 54 and "Warm in the Shadows" and the Abba-esque "Goodbye, Everybody". I totally love it...every track!

Buy it, play it, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best things I've heard since 1978! 23 Jun 2010
By D.T.
Format:Audio CD
Heard this at a friend's house and immediately went to check it out. Once I heard it properly,
I was blown away. Hard to add further to what has already been written about the album,
other than how refreshing it is to hear people actually writing songs again. There is still
some hope!

If you like ELO, ABBA, Carpenters etc, then you'll love this. I learnt about them after they
had played in London and wish I could have seen them live. Will look out for them next time.

There is nothing I know of that sounds like this these days. I just hope they continue to make
albums this fantastic in the future. Highly recommended!
