Product Description

CD Description

For Fans Of: Abba, Chic, Studio 54, Philly Soul, The Human League, Motown. The Pipettes were never your typical pop band and now they re back to prove it. They ve put the polka dot dresses on ice, brought the boys out of the shadows and had a change in the girl department too. Their musical roots of sculpted, self-confessed, unabashed pop remain intact, but with a fresh new take.

Review

(Stop The Music).. has the sort of chorus that makes you go a little bit wobbly and misty-eyed and we like it very much indeed. --Popjustice (Song Of The Day)

Yes, we can all mourn the loss of the polka dots and other two Pipettes from the debut album, but things have moved on, as any biography will tell you. If you loved the catchy pop of the debut album, I see little reason for you not to take this album to your heart too. It feels more like another debut rather than a follow-up album because of the many changes, but the all-killer-no-filler pop is still there, with verses that are as loveable as the choruses. This album cheekily ends with the lyric, 'go right back to the start', which is what I can't help doing each time it finishes. It's the catchy tunes, pretty vocals and pop-disco sound that makes me press play again and again. It's an album that's been worth the wait. Good luck to the new-look Pipettes, and good riddance to the tedium of line-up changes. Buy it because you're worth it and you'll get your money's worth from repeated plays. Thanks for reading.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Jan. 2011
Format: Audio CD
The listening world's music press have not been entirely kind
about The Pipettes second album 'Earth vs The Pipettes'.
It depends how you like your pop I guess. Shallow? Mindless?
Vacuous? Tick all three if you are a grumpy curmudgeon! If
on the other hand you don't mind a bit of harmless jollity
then these twelve tracks might be right up your street.

We find a trimmed-down edition of the original line-up here.
It has come down to sisters Ani and Gwenno Saunders to carry
the brand into perpetuity with the guidance and inspiration
of writer/producer Robert Barry (aka Monster Barry).

The album is unremittingly upbeat and nothing wrong with that.
It's all a bit rough around the edges and clearly hasn't got the
kind of money behind it which propels the likes of Girls Aloud
or The Saturdays into the airwaves and you know what, if there
has to be such a thing as a girl band then I'll settle for this
one please! Yes, there are shades of Bananarama here and a glimpse
of Sophie Ellis-Bextor there but I'm not gonna complain because
I like them too. The tunes are good and that's what matters.

Things kick off with a real stormer in the shape of 'Call Me'.
It's got the kind of chorus which (however cliched) wants to make
me sing along with my hands in the air (not a good look for any
carnivore over fifty I know!) It's got more than a whiff of
Hazell Dean (remember her?) about it which is bound to make it
a winner in my books! The crisp and dry harmonies are delightful.

'Thank You' is another perfectly lovely composition. The
flattened Southern-county vowel sounds make it extra special!
Pop by numbers for sure but completely sincere and unashamed.

Loved their first album, the whole sixties style Spectorish pop joy bundle and looked forward to their second album. It's a totally different kettle of fish, and I don't like fish. Insipid pop nonsense best left unlistened to.

Great sounds, high energy, fun, entertaining. All words that are NOT applicable to this album. You liked the pipettes previous albums?, well you are going to loathe this. They now sounds like a bunch of wannabee's from X-factor. They have transformed into a dull, boring, bland, generic girl band. Quite a transformation indeed. Yes, I bought this (and the vinyl), oh well, we all make mistakes. I challenge anyone who is familar with their previous work to identify any track on this album as having the 'The Pipettes' sound. Maybe they should change their name to match their new image, maybe 'The Generic', or how about 'The Dull', or even 'The Why Bother Putting This On My iPod As Flash Memory Isn't Free And I Had To Work For The Money To Pay For It'. Not angry, just very very dissapointed. Nuff said.
