Editors’ Notes

The British dance duo of Jules de Martino and Katie White wander through the musical countryside nicking what they need with a casual authority that makes the outcome pleasurable and deliberately lightweight. "Silence" starts things; it's slightly hungover from the previous party. "Hang It Up" begins up with the opening flash of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" before reviving the awkward rock-rap category. "Guggenheim" furthers the rap influence with an insistence that the group will one day perform at the art museum. "In Your Life" turns in a nocturnal ballad that sounds like Nancy Sinatra discovering Tindersticks. The success of The Ting Tings' debut album left the duo skittish, trashing one album's worth of material for this one (the story's unclear of how much input the record company had in this decision). "Give It Back" ramps up the enthusiasm found in the infamous hit "That's Not My Name" from their debut album, We Started Nothing. This album's deluxe edition features demos, unreleased tracks, and remixes that double its playing time.

Customer Reviews

Its an odd album, but still has some highlights.

This is a very ecclectic album, and whilst about 7 of the original songs are very good, the rest is.....odd, its like a load of genres mixed together, like they couldnt decide on the direction of the album and just chose to put a song of each genre on it, which means it doesnt flow that well, we go from a 90's sounding rnb track to a more synthy one, then to a more ballady one and then to an indie one.
The deluxe edition is a mess, some of the remixes are absolute class! But they're far too many, if we were getting more original songs i wouldnt mind, but 6 remixes?! Four of which are all the same song but just a different remix!
I think its pretty obvious that they've had label interference, hopefully the next album will flow better. Im also hoping it wont take as long to make as this one did!

Ignore the other reviews

I was considering not posting this as it is a little bit off topic but compared to the the last three reviews it actually appears both intelligent and insightful... Then again, so does this - 💩

Firstly, Simon, the term "one hit wonder" was coined to refer to an artist who has released one hit single and then disappeared. Their first album alone contained four hit singles.

Secondly, Leigh, if you'd rather listen to Dolly Parton, go and do so and leave a pointless "review" there. This isn't a section for you to list artists you'd rather listen to, that's a personal preference and has no bearing on whether or not someone might like or should buy this album.

A contender for best difficult second album

I always get nervous about bands trying to record their second album. Particularly when they leave it so long to get round to a second release. The stories that surrounded the recordings in Berlin did not encourage me. However, this is a fuller, more varied collection than the first album with a number of stand out tracks, all of which grow with successive plays.
Some reviews have been negative about the remixes. I do not agree. I enjoy all of then and particularly the Guggenheim remix.
Sadly I suspect this will not sell in anything like the volumes that the band deserve but I would recommend you to park any prejudices and give the album a listen. Then, after that, i would listen again.


Formed: 2006 in Manchester, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Named after a Chinese friend whose name sounds like the Mandarin pronunciation of "bandstand," the Ting Tings -- a scrappy, dance-oriented duo consisting of singer/guitarist Katie White and drummer Jules De Martino -- formed in the Salford district of Manchester, England in 2006. Prior to forming the group, the pair worked together in 2001 when White was in the all-female punk-pop group TKO and De Martino wrote some songs for them. Later the pair reunited, and with another friend formed the trio...
