After such a long wait (including false release dates....) they're back!!! There are some belters here - not sure how main stream will take these tho? So many others have tried to "sound" like the B's (Scissor Sisters, Mika - all great) but they have outdone themselves. This is classic B's with an ultra modern twist. This will be a huge club hit, especially with the remixes :-)
Look out for "Eyes Wide Open" and "Love in the Year 2000"
Well worth the wait!

I've had the pleasure of listening to this over the past week and I
am so impressed by this, start to finish, you can't help but smile inside-
out. I have listened to the Bs music since the late 70's so when something this fresh comes out after such a long time between albums you're ears naturally perk up. "PUMP" starts this party off and from there
one song after the other this band just comes alive and throws down the beats
and attitude, this is their best collection since they first cut the rug and
yelled for us all to get down, down, down with Rock Lobster. You have to start
with Keith Stickland for his genius and raw energy and taken the time to get this sound right. His guitar is so
awesome, simple but creative and sets the stage for Fred, Kate and Cindy to invade these tunes
and make them all so vibrant and danceable. Steve Osborne and crew give
these tunes a modern electronic edge that move the B's into the 21st century. My favorites on this new collection(like every one!!), "HOT CORNER", "DANCING NOW", "FUNPLEX",
"LOVE IN YEAR 3000", "PUMP" and the absoulte killer "Juliet of the Spirits"
is worth the price of admission. Taken these songs out on the road will
be a party to remember. Radio has been so stale since we last heard a
proper B-52s collection. I'm hoping radio programmers give this masterpiece of dance rock heaven RADIO PLAY!!! Its been along while and
The B-52s are back and ready to roll. Everyone involved in this project is pumped and gives their best efforts, its the BEST COMEBACK OF THE YEAR, try the Century! Long live the B-52s, Rock Gods!!!

well, i've held my breath for 16 years, and finally here is the new B52s album... it's been on constant rotation since i got my grubby mitts on a copy last week, and i have to say, it is completely brilliant!!!

knowing nods to their '70's roots, their early 90's heyday, and to the future B52's... from opening electro-rock out 'Pump' (any album that opens with the line ''i look at you, and i'm ready to pump, luminous heart throb, ready to jump'' is a winner in my book!!! to the closing chant of 'Keep This Party Going' (and you know they mean it), it's a superb piece of work.

I especially love the ethereal Juliet Of Spirits (excellent multi layered guitars and harmonies from Kate & Cindy), the throbbing, industrial tinged anthem Love In The Year 3000, a chant about London buses on rocky 'Hot Corner' that will lodge in your brain and never leave, the inspired 'Ultraviolet', and the strangely obtuse but beautiful Eyes Wide Open.

After the musical behemoth that was 'Love Shack', and the massive selling 'Cosmic Thing' album, it is easy to disregard the B52's as novelty. There is however a good reason they're still churning out the non stop party albums after 30 years, and this is a brave, intelligent and inspired collection of tip top songs that has me throwing back the roof on my convertible and waiting for the summer to come!!!

A non stop electro rock out for pop fans the world over...

how did we manage without you for so long? Welcome Back B52's - we've missed you loads x

When I heard there was a new album coming out my first thought was, "I hope they don't spoil their legend with this..."

This had the potential to be embarrassingly awful. How fabulous then to hear such an unbelievably great album. Full to busting with top top tunes and unsurpassed energy. Just buy it. You will not be disappointed.

I've been a fan for longer than I can remember. I first heard 'Rock Lobster' in the bar of the Scala cinema in London when I was probably too young to be there! The next time I remember hearing them was in HMV Oxford Street sometime in the 80's. The song playing that day was 'Girl from Ipanema goes to Greenland'. I didn't know who it was by at the time, but when I found out and listened to the rest of that album (Bouncing off the Satellites)I was completely hooked.
In my opinion, they haven't really made a duff record (maybe one or two naff tracks, but that's about it). Consistent, original, great melodies, out-there lyrics and have worked with some of the best producers of all time. The B-52's have influenced so many bands over the years and continue to do so.
Yes, you can probably tell I like them but even if you've only heard 'Rock Lobster', 'Love Shack' (that great wedding disco classic) or 'Roam', do yourself a favour and get this record because I think you'll like them too.
This is a true classic and worth the wait. I truly hope there will be many more B-52's records in the future because the world needs more of them!
