EDITORS’ NOTES

“Great DJ” is all cool and sassy in a New Young Ponies kind of way, with big dance beats, hiccupy vocals, and shimmering tambourines, while “That’s Not My Name” is even more cheeky and has a kind of M.I.A. flair. “Impacilla Carpisung” is nonsensical and fun, a bit of electro-spice in the honey.

Don't get too serious...

...about judging this album. Certainly the band wasn't too serious when making it. What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a great pop/rock record with some great vocals and catchy hooks.

Yes, you might think you've heard bands like this before but you'll note that you can't really pin down who, where or when. And no, they do not sound like the B-52s. Far from it.

Anyway... all the bickering aside, this is a great album, and again--the vocals are just plain awesome.

Makes Me Wanna Dance!

This album is in one word...awesome. I love love love the way Katie White belts out those lyrics and how totally in synch she is with Jules De Martino's percussion. So catchy...with plenty of attitude...lots and lots of fun. You know an album is great when it makes you dance right out of your car seat! This is pop at its absolute best. While all of the songs are strong, I'd give top marks to "Great DJ", "That's Not My Name" and "Shut Up and Let Me Go" (if you've seen the latest Apple commercial you've heard this track). Recommended if you like Cansei de Ser Sexy, Gorillaz, Beck.

One Of The Best Of 2008

If you don't know The Ting Tings, they are featured in the latest Apple iPod commercial. This album s so creative. It's possibly the best album I've listened to this year. It's in it's own genre almost, and almost any person could enjoy at least one song on this album. Truly amazing!
