Amazon.co.uk

Alice Deejay are the all-female Dutch group who wooed Europe in 99 with a particularly nasty strain of trance-by-numbers. From out of nowhere, they released the singles "Better Off Alone" and "Back In My Life", atrocities that managed to infiltrate every youth club and boutique from Reading to Rotterdam. The arrogantly titled Who Needs Guitars Anyway is an album worth of similar crimes against humanity. It'll come as no surprise to hear that, of the 14 tracks here, there's little in the way of variation. Most songs (and the term is used generously) consist of dumbed-down saccharine riffs, simple, two-fingered Hi-NRG basslines and the kind of metronomic beats that would keep a hypnotist happy for years. The singing is equally loathsome, revelling in its attempts to exert cutesy adolescent angst over the anodyne backing tracks. Perky synth lines, crashing cymbals and funny whooshing noises might be all the rage at seven year old's birthday parties, but really, this kind of Fisher Price trance makes Sash! sound like Beethoven and is best avoided.--Paul Tierney

... cos it's fantastic! So there are 5 singles on this album which have been released so far - Better Off Alone - Back In Your Life - Will I Ever - The Lonely One and Celebrate Our Love... the album version of Celebrate Our Love isn't as instantly catchy, but it's still a highlight of the album. As for the album version of The Lonely One... it's almost identical to the radio version, but a little smoother, and in my opinion, it gets you moving even more!!! It's the song on the album which I play over and over! Waiting For Your Love also kicks some serious butt :o) If you liked any of the singles, I'd definitely recommend this. If you're wanting it for Celebrate Our Love, have a listen to the album version first. This album is a real classic... I can assure you - you won't be disappointed!

"Better Off Alone" was a wicked and catchy tune, it's one of my favourite songs on the album, then came, "Back in my life","Will i Ever", "The Lonely One", and "Celebrate our Love". All these made you want to get up and dance. I've also bought albums this year from Fragma, Sash, and Vengaboy's (Big Mistake), and Alice deejay's album is definately the best out of them all! I think that all of the songs on the album are really good and you've got to have talent to be able to produce dance tunes like that!

I shouldn't even be reviewing this Cd, i am 34 and don't even like dance music but it's one of the best Cd's i have, it's just straightforward catchy uplifting music with no strings attatched, the singles everyone knows but the rest of it is pretty excellent too, give it a go

This album is absolutely brilliant, if you love dance music like I do then you will love the dance music on this CD. It includes her smashing first single 'Better Off Alone' which in my opinion is the best song on the album. 'Will I Ever' is also a VERY catchy tune which will have you singing and dancing around the place! Also includes her second single 'Back In My Life' which is a brilliant dance tune which has a great beat on it. Brillant album, a must have.

The songs are very familiar. It's very hard to distinguish them from each other. The only ones which stand out are the released singles and 'fairytales'. It has grown on me and its good to dance to but nothing more. The other songs i like are 'I can see it in your eyes' and 'Celebrate our love'. They have over-used their trademark sound like atb. Listen before you buy!

This album is one of the best albums I own and what's more most of the production is done by a woman herself alice deejay. Now in this modern music industry what woman can you think of in the past 10 years since who actually makes her own music that you want to listen to. None of these popstar women make their music hell not many of them even write it it's pure garbage i don't even call people like beyonce and rihanna musicians they are ENTERTAINERS and not very good ones at that. Alice Deejay was a real musician and in the current trance scene more of this type of music is needed as opposed to the commercial un-melodic pap that masquerades as trance nowadays (see the Bonkers and Hardcore CD adverts)

This music may seem repetitve but as the album title says who needs guitars anyway, and if you know anything about music you will know a true MUISICIAN has a particular recognisable sound that you can recognise their tunes from the first few bars from Mozart to Dylan to this.

Before anyone thinks about how a pop/dance album can merit 5 stars, let me explain that this is simply the best album available in this type of music. Without fail every single track is uplifting and catchy, and there is some variation in the tracks too, from the chilled out vibe of 'Fairytails' and 'Everything Begins with an E' to the energetic 'The Lonely one' and 'No More Lies'. If you liked the singles that have been released so far, you'll be surprised at the quality remaining on the album. 'I can see' is simply the most amazing dance tune ever and is compemented by 'Waiting For Your love', whilst 'Who Needs Guitar's Anyway?' is the sister of 'Everything Begins with an E'. The weakest tune on the album is 'Got to Get Away' (which still is ok) simply because it's less catchy than the others. However this album overall is fantastic, and if you are a fan of pop/dance music and liked the singles, failing to buy this album would be one of the biggest mistakes of your life.
