    Hmm, Builder? I’ll take that, although my facial hair looks more like the leather-clad biker.

    For me a very housey album, with that "after party" vibe. Got that proper "we've burned it, and now we're chillin" thing going on. Probably perfect for being sat round in said situation, but listening to it as an album at home now? Not so much.

    Da Funk & Around The World are the obvious mainstream highlights, but Fresh's intro stands out in particular as really nice, and Teachers provides a much welcomed change of pace with the lyrical content & funky stye. Fave track on the whole album is probably High Fidelity, a bit more classic dance-esq, with Alive being a type of dark ambience which I like too.

    Most other tracks are steady enough, but not that much on the album gets me really going either, despite the fact that a fair few are mostly listenable tracks, enjoyable in their own litte way. Rock N Roll however I found 7 min worth of total fucking ear-bleeding bollocks though.

    I definitely find each section on most tracks repeats too much for my taste too, and usually needs halfing for me to not get bored. Rollin and Scratchin' a perfect example of a track which kicks in 3min too late for me. Understandable in context of the era & track purposes though (obv usually mixing with other tracks).

    Not an album for me. I was just never one for the after party vibe and I found it a slog to get through all 16 tracks several times over. Just too much filler.

    What album's up next chaps?
    How about Parallel Lines by Blondie... A real classic that marked the move by Blondie from pretty shit American Punk wannabees to something altogether more musical.

    Hmm, not sure about that.

    Blondie were an important part of the New York punk scene; I wouldn’t call their early work „pretty shit“, as it was during that period that Debbie Harry became an icon.

    And yes, I still would.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Sounds good to me

    Got that on Vinyl too, so I'll save my listening for Sat night

    Has everyone posted their thought on Homework yet? Only seen a few.

    I went to see Blondie at the Cambridge Corn Exchange a few years ago.
    Debbie Harry was massive, and not in a good way.
    The band were excellent.
    As for their early work - they were on their uppers because their fan base for records was pretty small.
    Mike Chapman came on board to try and rescue Blondie from oblivion and was the genius behind Parallel Lines.
    Without that change in direction and Chapman pulling the band members away from the course of self destruction they were on, I doubt whether they would have lasted long.
    Of their earlier stuff the only number that sticks in my mind is Rip Her to Shreds.
    So are we revisiting PL, or does someone have a selection that the rest would prefer?

    I had a couple of listens & for me G&R are a bit too heavy, the hits are great but wasn't fussed on the rest

    Listenable but I wouldn't go out of my way for it

    My plan is to stick Appetite for Destruction on later tonight, hopefully on celebration of a fine Forest performance.

    Absolutely fantastic watching live music tonight. Treat yourselves guys to Randy and the Rockets streaming live. A band and a roulette wheel deciding what song they are playing live every Saturday night from 7.30gmt on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch.

    Fabulous thread this. Only just seen / skimmed it.

    Funnily enough (as 1994 was mentioned) I have just been listening to jar of flies by Alice in chains. Not heard it for years and love it. Really took me back. Reckon that was 1994.

    Just another plug for these guys, they are live again next Saturday and we have ended our evening singing along to Guns n Roses. 100% my new favourite band.

    Blondie - Parallellelelelelelelele Lines

    Mmmmmm. That delicious 70's Blondie sound. The one thing that stands out to me first of all is just how much the production on this captures that magic 70's crossover of punk, pop, disco, prog etc. And what a way start to it too. I fucking THRIVE my cockbox off at Hanging On The Telephone. Very few weeks go by where I don't play it, and it's defo in my top 50 "songs I wish I'd have wrote misen" list. One Way Or Another drops and keeps that momentum going nicely, and then it all settles down with Picture This. Not my fave song of theirs, but works well in context of the album.

    There's real nice variety of styles throughout the whole album too. Good example being listeing to the 60's bubblegum style of Pretty Baby, then jumping straight into the dark phrygian riffs in I Know But I Don't Know . One thing you can't accuse this album of is sounding all the same.

    But with all that said, I do find that some of the songs in the middle of the album lack hooky vocal chorus' which the music deserves. 11:59 a great example, of a song which I love listening to musicaly, but I'm gagging for a chanty release somewhere in there. "11:59, and I want to stay alive"? It just falls flat for me. And so sometimes the constant changes in song style, combined with that lack of core hooks, leave things feeling too disjointed.

    But then that rolls into the likes of Sunday Girl & Heart of Glass picking it all up again, and giving everything a clearer focus. Heart of Glass obviously needs no introduction, and I wouldn't have it as a particular fave song of mind, but I do love listening to it as it's just really absorbing, and Deb's Vox on that track give me tingles from my acoustic meatus to my anus.

    A really cool and enjoyable album, but also one that fights itself a bit too much between freshness & hookyness in the middle.

    Being a prog and blues man in the main, I was seduced into buying this album when it was first released by Debbie Harry's seductive voice and sexy look.
    I was young and impressionable at the time!
    I have never regretted spending a hard earned 30 bob on it as for me it is one of the best albums in my collection - ok, it is the pop side of punk, a bit bubble-gum in parts, but it was a great album to play at parties, to get the dancing going.
    None of yer techno/house/drums and bass.
    Just sheer enjoyable good fun well structured pop tunes.
    Having just played the LP (pops and scrartches and all) it still gets the feet tapping and the sap rising!
    The opening is a statement: the phone rings a couple of times then Debbie hits you with her demanding, urgent, needy vocal.
    One way or another I think every red-blooded male would want to be the guy she spent an hour watching him shower!
    The pace continues with One Way or Another, before a more meduim paced third track with some melodic guitar riffs and still that "come and take" me voice.
    The tempo is slowed with Fade Away and Radiate, which is a more dramatic song with a more soulful vocal.
    The variation in tempo continues and the album concludes with a couple of really commercial, really sharp songs.
    The only criticism I would make is the placement of "I Know But I Don't Know".
    Personally, I think this sould close side 2.
    Chapman has done a great job on production; the sleeve design is simple and very effective.
    As a collection of songs this is as fresh today as it was when it first came out.
    There is no pretension: it is what it is, a band led by a sexy woman with a producer who got the absolute best out of them.

    Blondie are timeless, some of their hits and even videos were like something from the space age and even now sound ahead of their time. ‘Atomic’, ‘Union City Blue’, ‘Dreaming’, ‘Hanging on the telephone’, ‘Sunday girl’... all brilliant songs.
    They had that New York ‘street’ image about them, the music was a cool mixture of post punk, bits of disco and pop, all fronted by an iconic looking Debbie Harry.

    How cool is this?
