4.0 out of 5 stars A FEEL GOOD ALBUM!
If you liked their last album 'Wild Young Hearts' it is likely you will like this album too. A brand new mix of tracks of different styles like on their last album, including Orchestral Soundtrack, Soul, Funk and Pop with Shingai Shoniwa' fantastic vocals.

The album opens like a movie soundtrack. Love it!
'I Want You Back' is a real 'get up and dance'...

3.0 out of 5 stars The magic is fading - the rhythm has been upset
Anyone buying this album on the strength of what has gone before will be left a bit deflated.
Songs like 'Wild Young Hearts', 'Don't Upset the Rhythm' and 'Don't Give up' are simply not here.

The whole thing feels a bit, well, safe. There is nothing here to give Shingai Shoniwa's amazing voice a real test of its talents. The songs all feel like the sort of...

Anyone buying this album on the strength of what has gone before will be left a bit deflated.
Songs like 'Wild Young Hearts', 'Don't Upset the Rhythm' and 'Don't Give up' are simply not here.

The whole thing feels a bit, well, safe. There is nothing here to give Shingai Shoniwa's amazing voice a real test of its talents. The songs all feel like the sort of thing that 6th form students might write - pleasant but unchallenging.

There is no doubt as to the musical skills of this band ... but the evidence is not there on this album. Lots of other bands are doing this sort of thing much better.
If you are new to the Noisettes try their earlier albums before this one for a taste of what the band CAN (could?) do - those who already know the band could do worse than to try The Bellrays ('Meet the Bellrays' or most recent outing 'Black Lightning') for the sort of thrills a good voice can bring.

Here's hoping that The Noisettes rediscover their mojo soon - or at least that Shingai gets a guest vocal slot with someone like the Black Keys!

4.0 out of 5 stars A FEEL GOOD ALBUM!, 27 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Contact (Audio CD)
If you liked their last album 'Wild Young Hearts' it is likely you will like this album too. A brand new mix of tracks of different styles like on their last album, including Orchestral Soundtrack, Soul, Funk and Pop with Shingai Shoniwa' fantastic vocals.

The album opens like a movie soundtrack. Love it!
'I Want You Back' is a real 'get up and dance' number. Sounds like it's from the 80's.
Final Call' and 'Winner' are pure pop numbers. If you like pop then these songs are for you! Not the strongest tracks on the album though.
'Let The Music Play' is a feel good funk/soul number.
'Travelling Light' takes the tempo down a notch or two. A slow soul number with a marching rhythm.
'That Girl' is one of the strongest on the album with a rocking beat. Sounds like it was produced in the 50's/60's. A great soul number.
'Ragtop Car' is an acoustic pop feel good summer song.
'Never Enough' is a big anthem style song that sounds like something from the 90's and something like Annie Lennox would sing.
'Love Power' is a pure pop number with a strong beat.
'Free' is a soul/funk number'
'Star' is another of the strongest tracks on the album. Sounds like something produced in the 50's/60's.
'Contact' is a great slow soulful orchestral track closing one feel good album. Sounds like a movie soundtrack.
Out of the bonus tracks, 'Mesmerise' is the best out of the three. An uplifting soulful feel good track.

This review is from: Contact (Audio CD)
This new album is a logical continuation if the other two albums. It's very much pop with not leaving out other influences paired with the great singer's voice. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Noistettes Do It Again!!!!!, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Contact (Audio CD)
Noisttes should be far more famous than they are. After Wild Young Hearts, they disappeared without any news. When they returned, a third of them had disappeared! They started with a teaser video of Winner (more on that later), however still the media seemed to not be interested. They announce Contact, hardly any publicity is given towards it apart from several very positive reviews here and there. After listening to it, I almost think that the lack of publicity was deliberate. This album feels very personal and like it's mine and only mine.

Transmission Will Start is the perfect way to open an album. This 40 second chunk is a fully orchestrated work of art, leading straight into I Want U Back, which is amazingly catchy, quirky and sets the tone for the whole album. Final Call starts with an airport announcement,which I think is different yet it works, which appears several times if you listen carefully. Winner, mentioned earlier, was released in support of Team GB. It is an uplifting tune which will have you humming along! Let The Music Play is the weakest track marginally, but I like the "No's" incorporated into the chorus. Travelling Light is quieter and more personal, but takes a sudden turn in the last 40 seconds to keep you on your toes. That Girl is the first single and is a really summer-o-love song.

I would track by track for an album so versatile an diverse. As the final point, I really like the contrast between the begging and the end: starting off with a 30 piece orchestra and finishing with Shingai and a guitar. Pure Magic Noisettes, how do you keep on doing it?

This review is from: Contact (MP3 Download)
When I first listened to this album I could not help comparing it to 'wild young hearts' and feeling a little unsure. After a few more times it was growing on me fast and as I got to know the songs and the way the music flows I started to love it. Shingai Shoniwa has the most amazing voice and so unique, for me she is up there with the best. Personally I would highly recommend this album.
