CD Reviews

A new kind of revolution...
Kendall A. Bell | New Jersey | 06/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The second full length album from the Glasgow, Scotland trio Bis shows marked growth in all areas: lyrics, vocals and musicality. The album is like a mixed bag of styles. There are harder, driving rock/punk oriented songs like Manda Rin's 'The Hit Girl', a trip-hoppy, Portishead-esque song, 'Detour', as well as their all out pop blasts like 'Shopaholic' and 'Action And Drama'. Again, Rin has one of the album's strongest songs...Equal parts whip-smart and witty, 'Social Dancing' is the best pop album of the year. All others can only pale in comparison to the burgeoning talents of Manda, Steven and John."

"I was surprised when listening to this one, produced by Andy Gill (of Gang of Four). I know Bis has youth and energy on their side. All the more reason to hate them. But by the time you hear songs like "I'm A Slut" and "Eurodisco" you want to be jumping around the room high on E too. The enthusiam is catchy. I saw this woman stumbling on the corner of 10th and C this afternoon, high on some non-motivating drug. She obviously hadn't heard this Social Dancing record. This Scottish group is all about looking good and buying the right accessories. Even by the end, Social Dancing is inventive and doesn't let up. I know Bis has released many EPs in the past. I know many people wrote off Gang of Four when they came out with "Hard." Not me. Hats off to them for giving us a long playing delight!(www.freewilliamsburg.com)"
