4.0 out of 5 stars Yabba-yabba-ding-ding, 24 April 2010
This review is from: Vive Le Rock (Audio CD)
By 1985 the King of the Wild Frontier was being overtaken by the young pretenders of the mid-80s (not to mention SAW) and apart from the bonkers Apollo 9 and the title track of this album, was hardly troubling the charts; even an appearance at Live Aid couldn't arrest the slide. To be honest, as good as Adam's string of early 80s hits were, his was primarily a singles act, and despite the consistently impressive Friend Or Foe his albums were generally unremarkable affairs. I am talking as someone who was a huge fan back in the day, so I was pleasantly surprised when I revisited this remastered LP, to find out that it has actually aged extremely well.
With less emphasis on the remorseless drumming that made Adam Ant famous, a real Rockabilly feel to some tracks, and some effervescent guitars added to the mix, Vive la Rock is a buoyant and optimistic collection that would represent a real return to form; with the exception of the two lead singles from 1989's Manners & Physique, this would be Adam and long-term collaborator Marco's last hurrah; and what a hurrah too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adam Ant at his rockin' best, 7 Aug. 2008

This review is from: Vive Le Rock (Audio CD)
Adam Ant was known for been a celebrity that had a few number one singles, even though the 'Ants' era was different music, this album is very rocky and has excellent tunes, probably my favourite Adam solo album
