Product Description

Pop icon Adam Ant is making his eagerly-awaited comeback with his first album and single in 17 years, a world tour and a film. The national treasure, who rose to fame as lead singer of post-punk group Adam and the Ants in the early 80s, before embarking on a hit solo career, earned ten UK top ten hits - including three number ones - and became a figurehead for the New Romantic movement in the UK. Ant is one of the few British artists to replicate his success on the other side of the Atlantic, with a string of best-selling albums and an ever-swelling fan base in America, where he was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy; enjoyed three top 20 hits on the Billboard Top 100 and appeared on NBC s Motown Special with Michael Jackson. Antmania swept the nation, with Stand and Deliver hitting the number one spot for five weeks and winning Ant an Ivor Novello; album Kings of the Wild Frontier earning him a Best British Album BRIT Award; Prince Charming rocketing straight to number one and a further 12 singles making the top 30. At one point, he had an incredible eight singles in the Top 40 in one week. And this is why in 2008, he followed in Sir Paul McCartney s footsteps, by being presented with the Q Music Icon Award. He even excelled in a career in acting, which saw him appear in the theatrical production of Joe Orton s Entertaining Mr Sloane, a string of films, such as Nomads, Love Bites and Slam Dance and TV shows including The Equalizer, Tales from the Crypt and Sledge Hammer. After overcoming a well-documented battle with depression and bi-polar disorder, the London legend has finally bounced back with the eagerly-awaited album - Adam Ant is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner s Daughter. His first single in 17 years, Cool Zombie will be fully released on November 19th - and the album will be released in on Monday 21st January. The release will be supported by new movie, The Blueblack Hussar, produced by The Klaxons bassist Jamie Reynolds. Ant and his latest incarnation, Adam Ant and The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse are also taking in a sell-out tour of America, fresh from their successful tour of Australia. A full UK tour gets underway on 1st November in Glasgow and ends up in London on 30th November at a sold out Shepherds Bush Empire.

I'm a huge fan of Adam Ant which immediately makes me a little biased I suppose. The Ants were my introduction to music in 79/80 - my first musical love and that naturally gives them a special place in my appreciation of music. My tastes have broadened wildly since then but those formative years never go away. I've seen Adam perform live on numerous occasions since his return to the stage over the past few years. I've watched him grow in confidence and ability and it's been a pleasure to witness his return to form. However, like many, I awaited this release with anxious anticipation. I'm grateful to say that my fears have been allayed and my hopes exceeded. Adam has always been unique, difficult to pigeonhole, and thankfully nothing has changed.

This album doesn't have a 'Prince Charming' or a 'Stand And Deliver' because they were never what Adam was truly about. It's much more akin to the 'Dirk Wears White Sox' album. It's raw and gutteral. With this album he has acknowledged his past (indeed many of these tracks were born in the late 70's) and embraced the present - his present. What we get is something retro yet fresh. A mixed bag that somehow comes together as a unified whole. This album will offer surprises on repeated listens. Lyrically and sonically there are treasures a-plenty to be discovered. It's bold, unpretentious and takes no prisoners. Adam has not only returned to music...he has come out fighting.

Of all the possible come back albums that Adam could have made (after a 17-year gap since the excellent Wonderful), this is the last thing I would have expected. Spiritually, it has more in common with his punk days and the 'Dirk wears white sox' album than anything else from the Prince Charming/Kings of the Wild Frontiers era, although, to be honest, it really stands on its own and isn't truly like anything he has done before.

It has a very stripped back approach and is deliberately under produced, almost as if he and his band just turned up at the studio and started jamming. I am happy with this approach generally, but, on occasion, it can mean that his trademark vocals get buried. It is an album that does not make an immediate impact and it does take a few listens to get into the flow. But persevere and you will find some hidden gems.

So in conclusion, this is one of the most original and refreshingly different albums I have heard in a long time. Welcome back Adam.

I was a little hesitant about buying this album as it had been given a lot of hype by Adam and having looked on YouTube for some indication of what it was about I didn't want to be disappointed. I waited until all the hype was over and gave it a punt. All that I can say is that I wish that I had gone for it before. I remember Adam from Dirk through Kings and then through the rest. Friend or Foe and Vive Le Rock albums were great too. As we all know, he has gone through his share of ups and downs and this obviously affected his output (be it problems with record companies or his personal life. Good to see that he is in a good place now though). So what is this album all about. It is about where he left off when he was really hitting it and he has come back with a bang...!!! When you look at his back catalogue, he is extremely versatile and this album seems to encapsulate it all. There are hints of Dirk here and there but he has re-created himself again. Cool Zombie is a cool country bluesy track, completely Adam today. My personal favorite track of the album 'Shrink' can hold its own against any of the 'attitude' grunge metal that is out there today. Vince Taylor is a song with typical Adam swagger. Not bad for someone who is approaching 60...!!! There are some fillers on the album but what these are are going to be down to personal taste. Of the 17 tracks on the album I think he could have whittled it down to about 11 and come back with an absolute classic. Instead he has a quantity here whereby it would be difficult to fully appreciate EVERY track. On first hearing I must admit that I was a little disappointed but having given it a 2nd. 3rd, 4th go I can appreciate that it is where he is NOW and as such is not only an amazing comeback, but can also stand up on its own.Read more ›

I've never bought an Adam Ant record in my life till I heard a track from this on Jools Holland at New Year.
Had to buy this, the new style and his new band are brilliant, one of the best albums I've heard in ages ;-)

Sorry, Adam (Stuart).
Unfortunately, this album seems to have poor production values, but has the same qualities as the 2 recent stage shows/concerts I've been to.

I'm an Ant Fan from the 80s, have all of the albums on vinyl & CD. Sadly, I think Adam is being ill-advised by sycophants out to make money for themselves from his name & fame. Bring back Marco & drummers that can do the stick work for Antmuzic.

FolIowing some scathing reviews of this album, I was a bit nervous about buying as I've been an Ant fan since the early days and I didn't want to not like it. I needn't have worried, I was hooked from the first listen and absolutely love it! Adam is back!! Yes, there are some songs where his vocals could be louder/clearer and it might not be to everyone's taste because it's raw quality isn't for all. If you're a true Ant fan, who "gets" what Adam is doing and who really appreciates and admires his work, then this album is for you. Tracks like Stay in the game, Punkyoungirl and Medication are classics and what Adam does best. I can't stop playing this album and I look forward to future recordings from Adam with eager anticipation. Adam Stay in the game because you Kick!!!
