Product description

Product Description

When Parisian trio, The Teenagers, burst into our lives with EP `Homecoming' in 2007 - with its no holds barred lyrics set to a gentle lo-fi backdrop - we all fell in love. Not just with them, but with everything they see - and you see - through their teen-tinted glasses.
Now unleashing their debut album, Reality Check, we can all have a piece of their nostalgic humorous world. Featuring new single `Love No' ,The Teenagers continue with their cleverly crafted brand of synth-pop with candid lyrics about everything you say - but never hear on a record!

i think this album is simply fantastic.i have not stopped listening to it since i bought it and it makes me really cheerful everytime i hear it. Although it has a quite unique sound, there is a air element to the album. It also reminds me of a happy placebo with alot more synths.all in all if you want a lovely blissfull 40 minutes to brighten up your day, this album is for you.An essential buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haha 11 Dec. 2012
By Michael Austerlitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What a good album. It's funny, catchy, and fun. This band came out of nowhere for me as they're French and I'm from the states but I just love this album.
5.0 out of 5 stars Top-rated, top-played 14 Jun. 2012
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I listen to this album fairly frequently. It's a concept album about teenagers doing irresponsible things, which is conveyed in the lyrics to danceable music. The lyrics can be a bit misogynistic, but again - - this is a concept album from the perspective of irresponsible teenagers. I'm a city girl, so Reality Check is the perfect soundtrack for a ride on the train or while I'm working out. It's a top-rated album in my collection and one that I listen to often. Also, their accents are incredibly sexy.

Recommended tracks: Homecoming, F*** Nicole, Streets of Paris

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 7 Jun. 2008
By Michael L. Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay, so they're not very original in their sound, and the Teenagers may turn over the same tricks more than a few times, but there's no denying the appeal of their kitschy debut album. The lyrics are hilarious and biting ("Aspirin and alcohol are not enough to die, Nicole"), and the production - if somewhat repetitive - is tight; the songs hold together fairly well. This album reminds me very much of the Francois Ozon film "Criminal Lovers" - trashy, stylish and sexy. Delicious.

Key tracks: "Homecoming," "F*** Nicole," "French Kiss"

1.0 out of 5 stars "You can get an American to buy anything..." 22 May 2008
By phairphair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Or at least that seems to be the theory this French band is pushing with this album.

Bland beats and lyrics fittingly filled with all the profanity and none of the subtlety or insight of a true teenager.

Their stupid, sneering anti-Americanism shows that these cultured continentals have spent too much time sitting in front of the tube watching American re-runs and thinking that "The OC" portrays American teens as they really are.

The most interesting thing about this album is it's unintentionally ironic title. They condescendingly proclaim their album to be a mirror for the American listener, when really what it does best is expose their own naievete. Not surprising though, since isn't most hate spurred by ignorance?

To buy and listen to this album is a true excercise in self-loathing for any American. These guys hate us with every fiber of their being. So if listening to how much you're despised set to overly repetitive beats and derivitive New Order guitar sounds like a good time to you, then go for it.
