Format: Audio CD
Hearing it recently reminded me of the days when an act could be bubblegum pop (the equivalent of Will or Gareth today) but still reasonably in charge of their career, have something vaguely intelligent to sing about (side 2 takes media treatment of celebs as a recurring theme) AND be musically imaginative. I saw Adam at Ipswich Gaumont in 1982, around the same time as this recording, and he was brill. Star songs on this disc include Something Girls, Desperate.... Here Comes The Grump and Cajun Twisters. Some bonus tracks on the CD (Out-takes, 45's that were different from album i.e. "Desperate...." and "Goody.." etc) would have been good, but for the music, 5 stars.

Adam Ant makes a concept album about schizophrenia and it's a hoot !

'Friend Or Foe' is a cruelly honest, introspective - but madly entertaining work.
Adam has always been deranged. A sexed-up painted dandy, clever enough not to take himself seriously, but naïve enough to believe that brackish honesty is by far the best policy. He's tricky too, you just know that while you praise 'FOF' to high Heaven and grovel at its erogenous majesty, he's already toddled off with his next bit of fluff.

'FOF'is the most pervertedly demented album you'll hear. It has cuckoo spaghetti western rockabilly guitar, clattering percussion, and Adam, mad as a badger, exposing himself, warts 'n' all, for the world to see.
He's never pretentious, not for a moment self-indulgent. He's like an academically uncouth schoolkid, forever acting the giddy-goat. He's the boy twitching up girls skirts with a twig, drilling holes in the shower walls and flashing his willy around the playground in a witless farrago of exhibitionism. A veritable frothing, post-punk mini-Michael Douglas in a Prussian tunic.
How could he be anything else but a sex-addicted pop subversive, fuelled by frost-bitten decadent insanity?

His songs are so much fun they should have health warnings. He relentlessly takes the mickey out of himself; by ironic spaz-dancing, in catchy thrumming choruses and even the twanging axe solo's seem to be mocking him. Freud would have a field day.

"I want those who get to know me, To become admirers or my enemies", Mr Ant chuckles, not giving a fig. He doesn't believe in long courtships, he just wants to get down to the hot and sticky nitty-gritty. He'll do roses and chocolates, as long as he gets what he want's at the end. Imagine a more-talented Russell Brand.

Here we are presented with what can only be described as a Chameleon album by the great Adam Ant! As you listen to the content of this album you can here some Jazz pop as well as that Duane Eddy Guitar Riff! What I like about Adam's music is the fact that he can mix it up and give you something new without actually changing the Antmusic model! There is not a weak track on this album. It is a masterpiece which has stood the test of time and still beats what gets served up to us now. I think Adam has a passion for breakfast cereals too as I know he mentions Shreddies in Made of Money and I'm sure he used another cereal reference in another song but that aside what you have here is an album that will shine long after the sheen has gone in most of the albums of today. So all in all If you are Made of Money you should go and buy this HONEY!

a great pop album, loved it then/still love it now, something girls, place in the country, here comes the grump [ what a title !], crackpot history, made of money, try this for sighs, could have all been singles, the whole album has a great beat and flows well, still sounds fantastic. Just watched the prince charming revue concert, what a performer, where have all the real performers gone [don't I sound old !]. At leased Adam made great music/ he also had style. Saw him in concert last year for the first time, as I was a little young the first time round, he's still performs well, but I wish i'd been at the p c revue concert.
