4.0 out of 5 stars Fosbury delight 16 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
Trying to follow 'wallpaper for the soul' was never going to be easy, but tahiti80 have managed to pull off a fine third album. A blend of pop, rock, soul and dare I say hip-hop, combines to make a worthy successor. Keep up the good work lads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissful 9 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A gorgeous follow up to "Wallpaper for the Soul" layering electropop with funk with deliciously hazy tunes, lyrics and voices. Drawing on themes from the 70s and 80s and today, it's just the best summer soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Listen on repeat then love it 4 Mar 2012
By HEVS01
Format:Audio CD
Bought this after falling in love with what is still, to me, Tahiti 80's finest album: Wallpaper for the Soul. On first listen to Fosbury, wanting to absolutely love it, I didn't...but repeat listens on my ipod have quickly established that while it hasn't replaced WFTS in my affections, it's swiftly coming to be a close second. Tracks such as 'Something About You Girl' seem underwhelming on first listen...but by the fourth one I was hooked. An album to grow to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME SOUND, GREAT BAND!!!! 14 Mar 2007
By Shane T. Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the funnest, most creative albums I have listened to in a long time. Tahiti 80's sound is incredibly unique and fresh. I can only describe them as a intense collision of soul, funk, indie-pop and rock. It may seem perplexing for a band to pull together such a vast array of influence, but these guys do it brilliantly and this record is an intricate masterpiece. If you don't want to take my word for it, then check out their videos for "China Town," "Big Day," and "Changes" at You Tube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fosbury -fantastique! 22 Sep 2005
By Adam Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having only come across "Fosbury" and Tahiti 80 in the past three weeks, I guess I'm a little late in finding out about, what I consider is, this marvellous group. "Fosbury" is one of my favourite records of this year. To me, the album's melodic, shiny, funky and, seemingly, effortlessly fresh. The rhythms are great: locked in and riding the groove. The melodies feel warm but slightly melancholic to me, making it my perfect daily soundtrack, here at the end of summer in London. That said, songs like 'Changes' and 'Big Day' fizz with positivity and enthusiasm putting a spring in my step on the way to work - and that's saying something! While there are a lot of songs on the album, I don't feel "Fosbury" ever really loses energy; it simply changes the pace from a clipped blue-eyed soul track to a gentle ballad that reminds me of Paul McCartney [a good thing in my books, but I appreciate others may draw a breath in horror at that remark...]. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed "Fosbury" and having had the pleasure of seeing the group perform live last week, I can say they also do the album justice on stage and are a lovely bunch of guys. Vive Tahiti 80!
4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fun! 11 Feb 2007
By Tender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The beats are funky, we're talking kind of retro pop but not as corny as post-vintage pop,this album made me buy their previous albums,extra pieces of sunshine,puzzle,wallpaper for the soul,what i noticed is they have really matured,rhythm wise,even though there are amazing songs like "1000 times" and "a love from outerspace",i mean i keep on playing their album Fosbury at my place and i can see people feel their groove. The lyrics are simple and catchy,they flow with the beats,like i said pure fun and at the same time there is a sense of underground with the all the guitar sounds,"big day" is such a classic,this album is for people who have somewhat different taste in music,it's not really commercial or bubblegum, yet it's easy beats. It's is for chillaxed party people,i think it's worth it,i've been enjoying it with my crowd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for chilling, but vocals get tiring 14 Dec 2007
By Russ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While I like T80's stuff for chilling, the lead singer's falsetto gets tiring after just a few tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! 28 Sep 2005
By Elastico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a long time fan of Tahiti 80, I believe this latest work is a great album!

It sounds like the one negative reviewer was annoyed that album wasn't more rock? No thanks! I'm happy with the direction this album has gone in. Funky and Smooth!

On Xavier's voice and the music sounding the same. He sounds like Xavier and the band sounds like Tahiti 80. What's bad about that? It has the same amount of electronic production as previous albums except it simply sounds more prominent on this one.

Overall... just think of their previous songs... but funkier and smoother. Less rock and more relaxation.
