REVIEWS

*****
Das 2te Album von Blondie ist allemal gute Ware. Trotzdem, so empfinde ich das zumindest im Moment, ist es die schwächste ihrer Karrierre geworden..
Na gut, das war dann vielleicht doch etwas übertrieben, mit einem Schnitt von 4.75* kann man von schwach nicht wirklich sprechen.
6 Songs daraus gehören zu meinen Blondie Top-40, Denis natürlich an erster Stelle..

klar schwächer als vorgänger und nachfolger, aber trotzdem eine sehr gute platte!

highlights: "fan mail", "denis", "youth nabbed as sniper", "contact in red square", "i didn't have the nerve to say no" und "no imagination". zum ende hin wird's schlechter, doch insgesamt kann ich die volle punktzahl geben!
****
Das zweite Album baut leider gegen Ende immer mehr ab.
#9 in D, #10 in GB und #72 in den USA
****
@ remember:

Kannst mir glauben, dein guter Instinkt hat dich nicht getrogen, ist wirklich klar das schwächste Blondie Album,
auf alle Fälle was ihre beste Zeit (Ende 70er/Anfangs 80er)
betrifft.....

Nur noch mit viel Goodwill (und weil ich Blondie eigentlich
auch ganz gerne mag) reichts noch zu einer 4......

Dieses Album leitete den Übergang von der Punkband zur Popband ein.
****
Empfinde ich auch als schwächstes Blondie-Album, klingt ein bisschen so wie es einige Kritker bezeichneten, die Resteverwertung vom Debüt. "Presence, Dear" und vor allen Dingen "Denis" sind klasse, daneben gibt es einige gute, aber hier und da auch schwache Nummern. Eine solide 4 ist aber noch drin.
****
durchschnittliche Bewertung: 3,73 Sterne

persönliche Favoriten:

- Denis
- Poets Problem
*****
Ihr zweites Album bescherrte ihnen wenigstens ersteinmal Aufmerksamkeit in Europa, besonders in Holland.
Die Scheibe hat hier und da einige kleine "Schönheitsfehler", aber sie ist trotzdem ein absolutes Must Have für jeden, der sich für die Anfänge des New Wave interessiert!
