White Town - Women In Technology (Chrysalis)
You really wouldn't wish the tag One Hit Wonder on anyone, but after listening to this album a couple of times, there's really not too much here to inspire. Apart from the hit "Your Woman", everything sounds remarkably dated in that horrible `80s way.

The sad thing is, you feel that the results could have been different had Chrysalis not rush released the album so quickly. A lot of the ideas seem to be sound; they just needed to be worked on a bit more thoroughly. Instead there's a feeling of work in progress, of under-realised potential struggling to be heard. It almost sounds like a demo.

If Jyoti Mishra's sound reminds me of anyone it's the Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt, though Merritt's albums always sound fleshed out and complete. I hope the hit curse doesn't spell the end of White Town. There is potential. 4/10.

Women in technology is one of the must have albums of the 1990's, spawning the number one single "Your woman", but please White town are so much more then one song.
The brilliant "Undressed" opens the CD greatly, the sinlge that followed the hit "your woman" and deserved to be looked apon in the same vain, it really is a great tune. it then continues with the song "Thursday at the Blue Note" a great Jolly bouncet song with some pretty amusing lyrics.
The albums mood then mellows for the acoustic almost lounge feeling "A Week Next June" a nice little song which would not be out of place on an Kings of convienece album. After that the album reaches the song that we all know "your woman" and waht a classic it is, sampling an old 1930's song and shades of Buggles "video killed..".
After the fantastic opening the album continues in its diversity the song "white town" no prizes on the origanality of the song title is a nice little mid album interlude, and after this i think you stumble among some of the nicest songs commited to CD. The song "The Shape of Love" has a dreamy feel too it and is just bliss, followed by the female lead voclas of "wanted" another really top tune."The Function of the Orgasm" A song title thats bound to make you giggle like a school girl, Is not memorable but reminds me of the De la soul first album. After that for me the albums finest moment "Going Nowhere Somehow" Is plain brillance, with a synth hook to die for.
The closing songs on the album are top notch too The cheeky "Theme for an Early Evening American Sitcom" is so spell brindingly happy and catchy its stuff that lepracorns could have made. "The Death of My Desire" has a more rock feel to it but works and complets the musical journey nicely before the closing track "Once I Flew" Leaves you wanting more.

Great stuff

What's a funky track like you doing on a quiet CD like this? 5 Aug 2002
By Andrew McCaffrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
White Town's WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY is an interesting collection. It's also quite a varied set of music. The single off of this album, "Your Woman", was all over the radio in the year that this was released, but don't purchase this CD expecting to hear ten other songs in the same style. The album as a whole is fairly quiet, thoughtful, and reflective, and "Your Woman" sticks out like a sore thumb (albeit a thumb that really knows how to party).
It's really a pity that a lot of the song titles are more interesting than the pieces of music themselves. Don't get me wrong though, when White Town do something right, they do it very right. But when they go wrong, look out. Some of the songs on here are just painful. The lyrics are often banal and uninspired, so when the music lets them down, there's absolutely nothing of worth at all. A lot of the songs sound rushed and incomplete. I have no idea what the circumstances were behind the recording of this album, but if they did indeed hurry this release to a premature conclusion, I wouldn't be surprised.
I find myself having some difficulty explaining even those songs that I do enjoy. Perhaps if I stated that I have an appreciation for them, rather than a genuine enjoyment it would better convey my exact reaction. There are a few songs that I thought sounded very good, but my response to the music was more along the lines of "Hmmm, that sounded very nice" rather than "Holy cow, that blew my head off!" It's an understated album, but one that is often too understated for its own good.
While typing up this review, I had WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY playing at the same time, and I came to the conclusion that it works fairly well as background music. It's not an overwhelming album, but it does have several moments that broke through my consciousness and made me think, "Gee, that was a nice few seconds of music there." Unfortunately, these moments are fairly isolated at times. However, if that sort of thing appeals to you, then you might be quite happy with a purchase of this CD. But if you're looking for eleven songs that are all in the style of "Your Woman", then my advice is to search for that single on a compilation album.

You're missing the point 22 April 2000
By Algal Bloom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't usually write a review, but all of you who are trashing this album are missing the point. Don't just buy this album expecting it all to be like Your Woman, because its not. Most of the album is absolutely beautiful. I find it very reminicent of Nick Drake actually, especially A Week Next June and White Town. This is not radio pop for casual listeners. This album is for the people who truly appreciate music as an art form and something that stikes a cord with your soul.

Very Innovative 25 Feb 2001
By Newspeak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's a shame this album did not enjoy very widespread success because the songs on it are truly original, innovative and emotional. The song "Your Woman" alone is enough to warrant the purchase of this album. Be forewarned, however, if you are buying this album thinking all the song will be as catchy and immediately-enjoyable as Your Woman, your in for a surprise. The rest of the songs go beyond that and are far deeper. You have to really listen to the lyrics to truly appreciate them. When you do that you will see their meaning and beauty and hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I did. All in all I would like to see more albums like this to break away from the mold. This album is a great example of what music is SUPPOSED to be: art.

Great CD! 8 April 1999
By emoyer2@webtv.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most of the CD's I buy these days are only to get one song. I bought this disc a little over a year ago for the song "Your Woman" thinking that this was the only song I'd like. Wrong!! The entire CD is highly listenable. It is one of the few CD's that I regularly get out and give a spin. The songwriting is very good, the electronic sounds scattered about the disc are awsome.

I reccomend you buy this album now! 29 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought the single 'Your Woman' the week it came out in the UK, and i *loved* it. So, I thought, I would buy the album. Little did I know that *NO* local shops stocked it :-( As it said on the front of the single: ">Abort, Retry, Fail?_" So, a year and a half later of waiting for a shop to get it for me after *lots* of hassle, I finally got it and all I can say is buy it, especially if you like synth pop :-) Stand out tracks, apart from Your Woman are 'Undressed', 'Thursday At The Blue Note', 'Going Nowhere Somehow' and 'The Death Of My Desire'...so buy it.
