I only accidently stumbled upon the GoGos music lately because of my love of Belinda Carlisle's music, I decided to check out the sound she was involved in creating with the GoGos. This band is quite special, I've never heard anything like their sound before, they are so energetic in their own unique sound, the guitar's, drum's and keyboard work is excellent along with the incredible vocal talent of Belinda Carlisle and when the rest of the GoGos sing in the backround a beautiful sound is created. This album "Talk Show" is not easy to get but if you like the GoGos already then don't hesitate, go after this album, its brilliant. I bought "God Bless The GoGos" as my first GoGos album and I was totally addicted, that was a superb album but this album matches it in quality. This album "Talk Show" is maybe a little rockier in volume but every bit as good. As in the words of one of their albums, God evidently did bless the GoGos, with incredible talent.

For some reason the Go-Go's appear to be criminally overlooked when it comes to those periodic 80s revivals. Despite first getting noticed in the UK (a demo of breakthrough single We Got The Beat was recorded here and got them a record deal when they returned to the USA) they appear to have never been as popular in the UK as in their native America with singer Belinda Carlisle's solo work probably better remembered. This was the last LP the group produced before splitting up in a haze of drug problems and personal acrimony.

I've had this album on repeat listen for well over a few weeks and, in addition to the catchy tunes I can't help marvelling at Martin Rushent's crisp production. Compared to some music from the same era it doesn't really sound at all dated (nary a hint of the horrid synths and nasty drum sounds so prevalent back then). By 1984 most of the rough edges from the group's punk origins had been smoothed away and I could easily imagine a modern all-girl group singing most of the songs here. However, the difference between the Go-Go's and groups like Girls Aloud, The Saturdays et al is that the Go-Go's actually wrote and played on all their own records - something of a landmark at the time.

Thankfully the group reconvened in 1994 to celebrate the release of a compilation Return to the Valley of the Go-Gos which also contained at least one new classic track:

Turn To The Go-Go's 14 Dec 2000
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the hit or miss affair that Vacation was, the Go-Go's finally took a break from their rigorous touring schedule. They returned back on the top of their game with Talk Show. The album combines their punkish attitudes with a slick pop production. The pounding piano on "Head Over Heels" practically begs you to get up and dance. "Forget That Day" shows Belinda Carlisle's ability to perfectly portray the girl with the wounded heart. "Yes Or No" & "Beneath The Blue Sky" or good pop songs as is "Capture The Light". The highlight of the album, and possibly their career, is "Turn To You". The song is a perfect synthesis of their early punk rocking days and their recorded pop sheen. The song has a frantic driving guitar and slamming drums, but it also has a stop and go sound with perfect harmonies. A true triumph. Unfortunately the band imploded after this release, but they did leave behind three great albums.

Without a doubt, this is the best Go-go's album. On this album, the music and the songwriting is more mature than the two previous albums "Beauty & the Beat" and "Vacation". For me the best cuts on this albums are "Head Over Heels", "Beneath the Blue Sky", "Forget that Day" and "Capture the Light". If you're looking to buy an album by a group of really hard working women, this is it, nothing comes better than the Go-Go's. Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine and Jane Wiedlin are indeed THE greatest female rock group in the world. Forget the Spice Girls and any other girl group like them, THE GO-GO's are the real deal.

WHO KNEW...? 29 Jun 2005
By J. Brady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Third time's the charm, I have always been told, and this is a shining example of that theory. After their debut "Beauty and the Beat", Go-Go's were looked upon as something of a novelty. A group of women who not only played their own instruments but wrote their own songs. A REAL band, in an era ( the early Eighties ) of manufactured, visually driven MTV pop. Unexpected platinum sales for the debut lead to unreasonably high expectations for the follow up, and when "Vacation" underperformed with critics and fans, the Go-Go's retreated for a break and returned two years later with this incredibly solid album. It rocks surprisingly hard. It SOUNDS great ( kudos must go to producer Martin Rushent ). The songs are all tight and just hooky as hell, despite the fact that many are rather dour lyrically. This is where it all fell into place - the writing, the production and mixing, the performance. This is the Go-Go's finest hour. Three fantastic singles. Many fine album cuts, not a clunker in the bunch. Highly recommended for fans of the band, as well as pop-rock lovers who like tunes with just a little edge.

Brilliant, hard rocking album --- 1984's best 18 Dec 2004
By Robert Bykowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Talk Show is a punchy, hard rocking, brilliant pop masterpiece. It was my choice at the time as 1984's best album, and it is the only one of the Go-Go's first three albums that still does not sound dated. The production by Martin Rushent is superb --- the drums slam in your face, the harmonies give you goose-bumps, the guitars jangle and soar harmonically and rock down 'n dirty. "Beneath the Blue Sky" and the great single "Head Over Heels" are the best tracks, but every one is a winner and shows off the band members' virtuosic songwriting skills. Truly a great album, and perhaps the best pure pop album of the '80's. A criminally overlooked work -- get it now !

Best for last--Go-Go's 3rd album was their best 22 Aug 2003
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When Universal Records wisely decided to reissue Vacation and Talk Show, I was elated. Given the hard-driving punk/surf guitar/new wave sound of their third album, they should've been going strong. They feel stronger here than their first two albums, and as a result, I say this is the best album they ever released.
"Head Over Heels" alternately charms with the ongoing piano and really packs a punch with the lead heavy rock guitar. The heavy clap that sounds in the chorus is kinda neat too in this hard-driving track.
Belinda tries to coax someone scared of love in the equally driving "Turn To You." There's even a Beatles-like "ooh la la" mixed in there. "You think falling in love means falling to ruin" sings Belinda, explaining a flaw present in both sexes. The strong surf-punk sound gives the chorus an extra punch.
"You Thought" has a lot more spit and grind than its cousins "Lust To Love" and "Fading Fast" from Our Lips Are Sealed.
Kathy Valentine's pulsing bass sets the rhythm for "Beneath The Blue Sky". The blue sky is the illusory calm that hides the stormclouds brewing between two people. Wonderful guitar solo and rhythm guitar work from Jane in this singleworthy tune.
Rhythm guitar and piano underscore the sad "Forget That Day" about trying to forget a lost opportunity: "I can only kneel and pray/try and try to forget that day." Why do those days have to be rainy days?
The grinding and snarling guitars make "I'm The Only One" the "We Got The Beat" of this album, complete with a drums and vocals section just like that song.
"Yes Or No" sort of slows the pace, although the same sound is present. "Capture The Light" recaptures the chugging rhythm guitar and tells how everybody wants their own piece of happiness. In one inspiring part, Belinda sings how "[I] used to hunt for darkness/and it would follow me/wherever I'd go/now I'm looking up again/I got no more time for feeling low."
The last two songs, "I'm With You" and "Mercenary" are slower, but still have a strong sound permeating throughout the rest of the album.
After Talk Show, first Jane Wiedlin, replaced by Paula Brown, then Belinda Carlisle left the fold, and the Go-Go's were no more until God Bless The Go-Go's in 2000. What's important is that each member of the band did their own thing. Belinda Carlisle had the best solo career of the lot, followed by Jane Wiedlin who also did some acting. Gina Schock did the short-lived House Of Schock, Kathy Valentine had the Delphines, and Charlotte Caffey teamed up with Meredith Brooks and Gia Ciambotti for the Graces. And there aren't too many other groups who do that.
