The Virgins have done their best to be authentically 80's, and have pulled it off. They sound like The Strokes with a more pop edge. Their sounds mirrors early new wave and mid 1980's pop music. Any one of these tracks (bar the rather awful Fernando Pando) could show up in an 80's compilation between Girls On Film and Blondie's Atomic without standing out as the impostor.

While I am not a fan of 80's pop in general, I couldn't help tapping my feet and nodding my head along with this disc. If the sound were rawer and the guitar a little more angular, this could be an alternative Strokes album - think Is This It? rather than later efforts. The song writing is good, the choruses exuberant and the attention to detail - even the packaging makes the disc look like an early CD from the 80's - commendable.

Perhaps this band will be a one-trick pony, perhaps not. Regardless, here they have produced 9 stellar pop songs (and one misfire) which will appeal to any old enough to remember new wave, or young enough to be coming to it anew.
