CD Reviews

Groundbreaking and brilliant
12/02/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Playing with a Different Sex, the Au Pairs debut is a stunning, numbing album. Tight beyond belief, the bass and drums hit a mile deep groove. On top, the guitars lay down soulful, screechy textures and the hyper-political, feminist lyrics cut deep. Run, don't walk to your stereo with this album, and listen close."
A must have

"When I heard Au Pairs in the early eighties, I knew they was what I was looking for: Intelligent music. They brought us a new concept in making and playing music. It's simply a masterpiece, and an advance for the music we've heard during the next decade. Buy it! Please!"

"I first heard the album(vinyl) back in '85 and thought they were quite clever. I've been looking for the vinyl version since '95 and am glad to see it is on CD. The additional tracks are of course a bonus but the seet strains of "Headache for Michelle" and "Armaggh" stand the test of time. Forget about their obvious political sensibilities, the music alone is worth a listen."
