5.0 out of 5 stars review of a review, 4 April 2011
This review is from: Prince Charming (Audio CD)
Whoever wrote the blurb about the CD at the beginning obviously has no understanding of Adam Ant whatsoever. I quote "although "Ant Rap" is a serious low point" You had to be there to understand and when this track came out as a single, we were all enthralled because it was so different from the new romantic stuff that everyone else seemed to follow. I can never forget the first thrill I felt when I heard Adam Ant for the first time. Antmusic came on and I just remember thinking "Oh my god, who is this?" I went on to become a life long fan and whether its the first album - Dirk wears white sox - whiich was so raw and different again or Prince Charming you could always rely on Adam to go his own way and not follow the crowd. Like everyone points out there are many songs that could have been serious soundtracks for films including Bond and Adam really didn't get the recognition he deserved at the time. I laugh when I hear people of the latest generation talking about eighties music and I am glad that it is going through a revivial as I don't feel that it has been truly explored, whereas punk has been done to death in the form of the Sex pistols and the resulting documentaries.
Wouldn't it be great to have a documentary about Adam.
If anyone hasn't heard this album I would really recommend it but I would recommend starting at the beginning of the journey i.e. Dirk and listen from there. It really is an experience not to be missed. The man is a genius. He is just about to embark on a tour so if you google Adam Ant you may even get to see the legend - and he looks great!!! I can't wait.:)
