CD Reviews

It's pretty good, but not their best.
Bob | Vancouver | 03/22/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This album is certainly a fun listen, as with all of their albums. But it lacks a certain thickness their later albums such as 'You Gotta Say Yes' and 'Stella' have. A lot of the songs are very short, at least, and it keeps you listening with an interest when the songs change frequently. Bostich is the highlight, with it's innovative rhythms and Macereana like verse. This album is for true fans only, if you like bostich get it on one of their greatest hits (Essential, New Mix in one go)."
Yello's best!

"This album was, I think, first released by the residential Ralph label in 1980 (correct me if I am wrong, but at least they DID release it)! At first listening me as a Residents fan was pretty much disappointed and began to have suspicions that Ralph was turning "disco" or "commercial" which would have been anathema. Even though the flip side of the first 7" was no problem the rest seemed a little too "trendy" to suit the Ralph league.

After repeated listenings however i discovered the innovativeness and the daring avantgardish mixes and ideas, even though the beat in some instances still disturbed me. After the many years that have gone by the ideas are not new anymore, neither is the way of creating music as Yello did new. These recordings today are but historical archives of a synthesizing pop culture that has turned over into digital sampling. Although these pieces are very 80ish in most regards, they have that playful and respectless attitude with them that signified the Ralph artists. And that's the thing with them that keeps them up.

I never became a big fan of Yello although I bought all I could get of them up until '86. But the first one, Solid Pleasure, is definetely the place to start as for early Yello - and it is still their best album to date."
WOW YELLO

"If you are a fan of Yello, you gOTTa have this record.
I play it regularly and it is permanently on my iPod.
There are 6 Yello CD's in the remastered release series, I have and recommend buying them all. It's a great montage of Yello with this album being the first of the bunch.
{The rest are: 2.Claro Que Si; 3.You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess; 4.Stella; 5.One Second; 6.Flag.}"
