5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Perfection, 14 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Parallel Lines (Audio CD)
Blondie never got better than this. I don't think there's a track on here that I have to skip past. Every one really is a winner.

Parallel Lines is by a band at the peak of their powers. They couldn't do any wrong and the quality of their songwriting on this album is stunning. Singles are: "Hanging On The Telephone", "Picture This", "Sunday Girl" and of course, the Disco Song, "Heart Of Glass". There's more to this that a clutch of fine singles though, some of the album tracks are simply stunning: "One Way Or Another", "Will Anything Happen" and my personal favourite Blondie song "11:59", three minutes of pop perfection from Jimmy Destri.

It's nice to get a few extra unreleased mixes, demos and that, but at the end of the day, they're unnecessary. The 12 tracks are enough.

Pop perfection.

I agree that this is a great album but, as a confirmed pedant, I cannot help hating the cover of this 2008 Deluxe Edition. The cover of the original album shows the band standing in front of black and white parallel lines. The 2008 Deluxe Edition has a background of black and white lines radiating out from the picture of the band; divergent lines, this is just wrong.
