Gossip Music for Men track by track. Опубликовано: 2 июл. 2009 г. The Band talking about their latest album.
Music for Men is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band Gossip. It was released on June 19, 2009, by Columbia Records. The album's production was criticized due to its "loud" sound quality.
These songs are just as empowering as their earlier work, though they're more subtly defiant. Dimestore Diamond" opens the album with a tough-strutting anthem about a woman who's faking it till she makes it, and it's clear how much the band identifies with her, even though Ditto became an avant-garde fashion plate in the wake of Control's success
Gossip : Music for Men,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. 5. Pop Goes the World. 10. Love and Let Love. 11. Four Letter Word. 12. Spare Me from the Mold. 13. Pop Goes the World (James Ford Version). 14. Heavy Cross (Fred Falke Remix).
The result is a good Gossip album, one that could soundtrack sweaty summer dance parties, but it also isn't drastically different from their last one. They may now have major-label money and famous friends, but their bluesy-voiced dance-punk remains unchanged- a fact that is especially surprising given the waning popularity of that genre over the last four years. But there are moments on Music For Men that represent some of the most memorably melodic of their career. In many cases, that's because Ditto has interpolated snippets of classic hits into her throttling garage-disco tunes. Love Long Distance", for instance, quotes "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"'s "not much longer would you be my baby" line, and "Men in Love", this album's answer to the last record's gay-rights anthem of a title track, features a "Chain of Fools"-like "shame, shame, shame" refrain.
Becoming suddenly famous for one tune can make - or break - a band. Alexis Petridis wonders which way it will go for the Gossip. Is there a sorrier sight in rock music than the alt-rock band that becomes known for one huge, unrepeatable hit? Not even the former X Factor finalist belting it out to rows of empty seats in the Auchenlarie Holiday Park cuts such a pitiful figure: at least they knew that the spotlight was bound to swiftly shift elsewhere.

It seems to be two steps forward, three steps back with Portland, Oregon soul-punk pioneers the Gossip. Not musically you understand; they consistently make leaps and bounds in that area, but as a political entity. And they are one, albeit an incredibly catchy and danceable one. Even if they don't use soap boxes or slogans, by their very existence and excellence Beth Ditto, Brace Paine and Hannah Blilie are a positive force for change in a narrow-minded mainstream; a sharp slap across the face, waking the world up to questions about image, sexuality, gender and identity.
The Gossip's template – Beth Ditto's almost absurdly soulful vocals set against an urgent rock-disco backing – hasn't altered significantly on their Rick Rubin-produced fourth album. Independent culture newsletter. The best in film, music, TV & radio straight to your inbox.
Album · 2009 · 13 Songs. Rubin works similar magic on Music for Men, peeling back the rough exterior and exposing the heartbeat underneath Gossip’s transformative rock ‘n’ roll mayhem. Vocalist Beth Ditto and guitarist Brace Paine work in tandem to build walls sweating with emotion and verve. Love Long Distance, "Men In Love," and Pop Goes the World shows Gossip’s sharpened disco pedigree with percussion and keyboards providing ample lift for Ditto’s clever wordplay. Music for Men scrapes its nails across rock, soul, gospel, dance, drawing blood and leaving an indelible mark.
