The Gossip - Music for Men

Fucking hell this is a GREAT album! Wasn't expecting this at all. Can't stop listening to it.

I expected it. It sounds exactly like their last album. I kinda miss lo-fi Gossip.

I think I just heard one song from this and it was cool. But I agree about Lo-fi Gossip.

I didn't realize it was out. Is it import only right now? I just ordered a copy from an Amazon seller for $7.00.

Yeah, it's available for download (legal and otherwise), but a US CD release hasn't happened yet - they're way bigger in UK and Europe, so they're concentrating there right now. And yeah, this new album's produced by Rick Rubin, if that means anything to you.

Thanks for the info, Slop.

Count me in as a bigger fan of the "low-fi" sound.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

This is my album of the year so far! My stand out songs, '8th Wonder', 'For Keeps', 'Pop Goes The World' and 'Love Long Distance'.

Here's the video for Heavy Cross:

Pop Goes the World? As in a cover of the Men Without Hats song from the 80s?

Edit: Just heard it... it's a totally new song. Still cool, though.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

great suggestion!

just finished listening, and it's great. "spare me from the mold" is a very x-ray spex sounding tune.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

call me insane, but i think this is the first 5/5 album this year. i've never even listened to the gossip until this suggestion, but twice through the album i've enjoyed every last note.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

Finally listened to this and it's pretty damn good. Definitely more consistent than the last album, but also much poppier. Might end up being one of my favorites for the year.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

i'm surprised at the negative/mediocre reviews it's receiving. yeah, it's just like the last one, but the production is catchier and i think the poppier elements are what make it shine.

been through it about 10 times now.

What negative reviews? I've seen nothing but good write ups.

These, perhaps? "8th Wonder" is fantastic.

Re: The Gossip - Music for Men

I'm loving the new album. I do enjoy the earlier albums more, but any new Gossip is good.

I'm still playing this album daily. So far, my favorite of 2009.
