5.0 out of 5 stars OMD 2010 10 Nov 2010
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was an unusul choice for a single from the new album by OMD. Its not the best track to have released as a single. But having said that I actually realy like the track and in fact this is a good release.
there are four tracks on this single. This is the one to get. Dont bother with the two track version. This release has the single "If you want it" which is a great OMD track. Then there is track two which is not on the album. Its a good mix of the song "alone" finally
there is two remixes of "If you want it". Both are interesting and worthy. The album, and all the tracks on this single have a typical OMD sound and this sound is very much a continuation of the 90`s OMD.
I personally think that the post 80`s OMD was just as worthy as the early OMD its just different. And all those that moan about any OMD later that 1987 seem to forget that true creativity cannot be realised by churning out the same early 80s sound. This is OMD 21st Century and its a good and enjoyable original track. I highly recommend the album History Of Modern and if you are a true OMD fan I also reccomend this single release.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hmmph! 29 Sep 2010
By Daglow
Format:Audio CD
Of all the tracks on the new album, this is one of the least obvious single releases. I'm in complete agreement with Dread Council. Not good.

The album, as a whole, is good and quite enjoyable, though no new departures for OMD. It's very much a case of doing what you do best and of it ain't broke, don't face it. And let's face it, OMD were good at it. Is there a gap in todays market for it? Even with the huge resurge in 80's style music, I think the only people to buy this album will be the 80's generation of electro fans and retired New Romantics. Still well worth a listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars If You Want It...no, not really 13 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
Oh dear. If the official press release is to be believed, this is "classic OMD given a contemporary shot in the arm." In actual fact this song wasn't even meant for OMD and stems back to the period when singer Andy McCluskey was plying his songwriting trade in the girl group market (namely Atomic Kitten and Genie Queen) - its co-writer, Tracey Carmen, even helped to pen one of the Kittens' hits.

This comeback single is the first single to be released by the classic 4-piece line-up since 1988's "Dreaming", and the first `original' track to feature the OMD name since "Universal" in 1996. I mention `original' in inverted commas because the cliché-ridden "If You Want It" is nothing of the sort - it is actually an unashamed rewrite of the last top 20 hit, "Walking On The Milky Way." Musically it is clunky and uninspiring, and easily the worst OMD single since 1987's "Shame." But, if you dress it up in an eye-catching Peter Saville sleeve and get it remixed by the likes of Villa Nah and Club Royale, I guess you can call it `contemporary.' The remixes are a mixed bag. Pick of the bunch is a stripped down mix of the song by Finnish electro duo, Villa Nah.

Far more interesting is the Eastern-flavoured b-side "Alone" which contains a breathy stream-of-consciousness narrative from McCluskey.

Parent album, "History of Modern", is another mixed bag, but there are better contenders for singles on there...tracks that are far more deserving of the `classic OMD' tag.
