Gossip - Love in a Foreign Place

my first listen of ‘A Joyful Noise’, quickly became the second, third, fourth, and really, I could go on forever. that’s how amazing it is. I’ve been a Gossip fan since “Music for Men” and oh yes, this new one just hits all the right spots.

the whole album is packed with their signature brand of power pop; it’s bold, catchy, and absolutely takes no prisoners. the indomitable Beth Ditto’s voice soars and dips, putting in a tender touch of emotional vulnerability even as it delivers an aggressive punch. fine examples are ‘Casualties of War’, ‘Involved’, ‘Into the Wild’ and the awesome ‘Love in a Foreign Place’.

yup, it’s a picture perfect world here.
