Wow, why didn't anyone else think of this before? (well I mean *since* the first time around!) I guess the Zoots wanted to wait until we'd all *really* forgotten what the best bits of the early 80's were all about - make-up, airbrushing, gloss, hairspray and synths - before throwing them all back at us in such a faithful nod to the greats of the time. In a way I can't believe that this album is a new release - not only are the instruments and suits straight of the Top of the Pops stage circa 1983, but the lyrics are so appropriate to the time - there was a time when the charts were littered with songs about Jessie, and here's another one! If I were to say the words 'advertise', 'plastic', 'beautiful' and 'image', you already KNOW what this album is like!
I've given this 5 stars because I was 12 in 1983 and it was pop like this that accompanied me through my formative years. And yes, I do also own the best of Hall and Oates and the odd Flock of Seagulls tape somewhere. Track 6 is pure Bladerunner soundtrack, but the highlight is a thumping rebirth of Kraftwerk's 'The Model' - I'd like to play it all the time, it's understood! As a kitsch, retro nod to all those 'I love 1980' programmes, this definitely hits the spot, but without a hint of irony or lack of original songs. These guys get my vote.

Zoot Woman could be construed simply as a trendy 80s retro synth band, who dare to include a cover of Kraftwerk's The Model in their repertoire, and who have nothing of substance behind their uniform appearance. This would be so wrong....
This is a fantastic album, with it's wash of harmonies, driving bass rhythms and lush synthesisers. It epitomises everything that was new and original about the electronic music boom and production techniques of the 1980s and gives it a subtle 21st century twist. Tracks like Nobody Knows (Part One), Jessie and Holiday Home with those sumptious melodies, overlayered synths and wistful lyrics are a delight. The re-working of Kraftwerk's The Model is the real surprise though, taking it in a new warmer, sexier direction with the aid of backing vocals and a thrumming bass, but strangely in keeping with the original.
This album is a reminder of so many 80s bands at their peak - Human League (Dare), Ultravox (Vienna) and Kraftwerk (of course). Zoot Woman however have a style all of their own, and on the strength of this debut album, I for one can't wait to see what will follow.

Okay ,like some other reviews, the album was a bit of a disappointment at first after hearing such good things about the band.
But then the strangest thing happened. I went on holiday - and forgot to take any music except this album which was already in the car. So I played it again... then again and again and before you know it I'm hooked!
Well worth checking out for all the reasons given by other reviewers (who have a far better grasp of the english language than me).
So why only four stars? Well - I'm still not entirely convinced...

As information/reviews about this are sketchy, i'll fill in the blanks. This is Zoot Woman's first ALBUM, which, in my opinion, is by far their best effort, to date (the 3rd one came earlier this year), purely because it's subtle and has variety to keep you guessing. Anyway....
The tracks are;
1. It's automatic
2. Living in a magazine
3. Information first
4. You and I
5. Nobody knows (part one)
6. Nobody knows (part two)
7. The model
8. Jessie
9. Chicago, Detroit, L.A
10. Losing sight
11. Holiday home

it's a range of 80s inspired styles and blending perfectly to create a very accomplished album that you can listen to all the way through, as each song/track seems to flow quite well into the next one. Some tracks are slightly more indie/pop, like the superb cover of kraftwerk's 'the model' (actually sounds more like the orginal than the original!!), and the title track, while others are more straight 80s pop style songs like 'information first' and 'jessie'. Some are chilled instrumental based songs like 'nobody knows' & 'chicago,...'. It opens on an 80s disco tip with the slightly underwhelming 'it's automatic', and ends which the understated 'holiday home', but it is what's inbetween these that needs time, and repeat background listens, to find it's way into your unconcious. It's really quite a quirky one this, but i think it's more listenable than 99% of actual 80s synth-pop, so, ultimately, a worthwhile concept, executed superbly.
9/10.

There are no standout tracks on this album. The whole thing is nicely produced and there are no standout bad points either. This is Zoot Woman's first album, I've just listened to their third album and it's a whole lot better… By 2009, Stuart Price had really found his producers feet. The third album is well worth it!

When ZW do their Hall and Oates-esque songs, it just doesn't really grab me. I bought this album on the strength of 'Information First', and for that reason alone, it gets the fourth star.
The title track is also superb. Their cover of Kraftwerk's 'The Model' is absolutely stunning and you should check it out. 'Jessie' is a good 80's-style romantic, synth-pop song. 'Losing Sight' is an elegant, acoustic guitar based lament which shows another side of ZW, another good one too!
But elsewhere, 'Holiday Home' is terrible, and 'Nobody Knows' is very poor fare indeed.
A worthwhile album for any fan of synth music or 80's based pop.
