5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh & Different - But Brilliant! 25 May 2010
By Gordz
Format:Audio CD
Ever since Scott Mills on Radio 1 had The Baseballs on his show I've been patiently waiting for their album to be realesed.

And now I've got it, I think I'm now officially hooked on The Baseballs!

This album is so fresh and different. I love it when artists come along and re-work chart songs in to different genres. Usually it's dj's re-working modern songs into dance songs, or solo artists slowing songs down (or it's the glee cast ruining them!), but The Baseballs are completely different to all them and almost do the opposite of that.

They get top chart songs and re-work them into 50's American 'Elvis style' songs. And you wouldn't have thought it would work, but trust me, it really really does!

I played this on the drive home from the shops yesterday with the sun gleaming down and the windows down, and I know already that this album is going to be a perfect feel good cd for the summer. I had a smile on my face all the way home :-) (which is hard to get from me while driving as usually I'm quite an angry impatient driver too!)

Anyway, if you're thinking of buying this album but are sceptical to whether their style actual works and is any good, well trust me on this one, it does!!! Just buy it! You wont regret it and I guarantee you'll be playing the album all summer long like I will be.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Baseballs - Strike! 9 April 2010
By E. Ward
Format:Audio CD
The concept of this album is simple; covers of songs with a Rockabilly, Elvis-esque twist. There's no way that this should work as well as it does, and the reulting album is surprisingly fantastic!

The opening track, Rihanna's 'Umbrella', is so instantly recognisable I jumped out of my chair when I first heard it on the radio. Its a very good version of the song, and so infectious you just can't help singing along! This is definitely a stand out track, as are 'Hey There Delilah', 'Hot 'n' Cold' and 'I Don't Feel Like Dancing'. Some of the tracks don't work as well as others, perhaps because they aren't as well known / as recent as others, but the excellent ones more than make up for it.

This CD is great fun and feels like a warm summers day. Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a hit 19 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I heard the band being interviewed on the radio. They said that they want there music to get everybody moving - thats just what this album does. I challenge anybody to not foot tap along or sing along to this album.

It's great!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Rockabilly lives 23 Nov 2009
Format:MP3 Download
I enjoyed this album greatly and it was a different type of album with modern songs given the Rockabilly treatment, but done very well and had I not known the originals i would never have guessed, some songs did work better then others, but I am looking forward to the next album and hopefully a few more original tracks, but this album is very catchy and fun which is what the band seem to be having.

5.0 out of 5 stars Umbrella 14 Feb 2010

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this cd for the Umbrella number. In fact, the rest of the album is ok, but Umbrella is by far the best track.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Summer Album of 2010! 14 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have played The Baseball's version of Umbrella to all my friends and family recently and without fail every one of them have loved it... if it does not make you want to dance, sing or at least tap along then there must be something wrong! Seriously, whatever music you normally listen to i challenge you to not enjoy this album! It is hard to explain why it works so well but i guess it is something to do with the combination of great songs, fantastic voices, a really authentic '50s sounding', extremely talented backing band and some fantastic arrangements (done by the band themselves i think?). And it really does not matter whether you like the original versions of these songs or not - in some ways the fact that they are modern pop hits is irrelevant as they could just as well be covering Motown or country covers and i'm sure they would still sound as great.

I heard them being interviewed by Scott Mills on Radio 1 recently and it only made me love them even more. They did not take themselves too seriously at all and had absolutely no pretense of being anything other than a fun 'pop' band with a bit of a difference. That said, they are clearly passionate about the music they play and have studied their inspirations (Elvis and other 50s bands) to great detail in order to be able to do the style (and hair/fashion!) full justice. Not that it would have made any difference to the enjoyment of the music, but it was good to hear that they are not a 'manufactured band' and actually formed the group themselves after meeting at rehearsal studios whilst with other bands and realising they all shared a love of the same types of music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Undecided 23 July 2010
By Mal Page VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm still undecided whether I love this or hate it. I bought it after seeing a video ad and thought it was a good way to get the modern songs I liked without buying loads of CDs. I also admired the sheer front of doing such a variety of material in a rock and roll style.
However, the songs seem frantically cheerful after a while and become a bit 'samey'. Unless you're in a good mood it can really grate. Some of the production sounds 'tinny' (but that could be my ancient kit).
Having said that, it does what it says on the tin. If you have a glass a wine and are prone to dancing round your living room inappropriately dressed, you'll probably love it!
