Bangles - All over the place (1984)
Top Customer Reviews
After this release their career took a more polished road towards mainstream stardom, eventual implosion and later reincarnation, but at this stage, their first full length album, they were rough, ready and compelling.
The first batch of five songs (side 1 on the original vinyl) is as upbeat as they have ever been, starting with the sing-a-long `Hero Takes a Fall' and ending with the shimmering `Dover Beach' where their steely guitars clash and grind against a stately rhythm. I remember seeing them live around this time and they played this song twice to rapturous applause.
The remainder is more mellow and includes Kimberley Rew's `Going Down to Liverpool' (the video of which featured Leonard Nimoy), but the energy levels never drop.
The recognisable hits `Manic Monday' and `Eternal Flame' would follow but this album showcases a young and hungry Bangles and highlights their mature songwriting and more than competent playing at a time when they had little recognition. A must for all Bangles fans and anyone else who like their rock a bit rough around the edges.
Though the beauty and full maturity of the later albums, noticeably their absolute masterpiece 'Everything' from 1988 is not really apparent on anything apart from 'Dover Beach', that's not to criticise. The romance that women love to staurate their albums with (see virtually every woman singer/group from 1990 onwards) is delightfully absent here on this 'get out of my face' collection. Even so, the album's top charmer 'James' (criminally ignored for a single release) does hint that Susanna can't quite get that heartbreaker out of her mind just yet. Other songs like 'All About You', 'He's Got A Secret', 'Silent Treatment' and 'Restless' either take apart in great rocky style the person who's using them, or is their message to a person being used. Ridiculously and unfairly (well it was the 80s and women singers barely mattered to the bloodsucking labels) only two singles were released, the opener 'Hero Takes A Fall'-which started the cool 'no-romance here' blueprint and the breezy, chiming 'Going Down To Liverpool'-but so many others could have been-most notably 'James' and 'Dover Beach'. Especially weird as from all albums on, the new rule seemed to be if Susanna sung it, release it! Bloody male record execs in the 80s!Read more ›
