Still danceable, after all these years-
Jason A. Gagnon | Cobleskill, NY USA | 12/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Hold on, I know, this is the epitome of cheese-pop, right? Well, maybe, but don't scoff! You're not reading this review on accident- you're here because you're trying to work up the courage to buy an album you may be a bit embarrassed to buy in public. Where someone might see you. And snicker.
Don't worry- you're anonymous here. Heck, pick up some ABBA and Neil Diamond while you're at it - you know you want you.
What makes this album so good? It is infectiously poppy and danceable- you cannot listen to The Sign without wanting to boogy down- perhaps in the secrecy of your own home, with the shades drawn, but boogy you will! You will sing from the top of your lungs All That She Wants- you'll remember all the words, or at least pretend you do, from your first re-listen on. It'll be like 1994 all over again!
This album is catchy, quirky, and better than you remember it- and, if you leave it out when friends come over, you'll soon discover you aren't the only one who had been missing it."
