Album Review

The most varied and accomplished of any synth pop debut, Yello's first album presents a few irresistible pop songs (the hit "Bostich," plus "Bimbo" and "Eternal Legs"), Boris Blank's synthesizer interpretations of several different forms of music ("Downtown Samba," "Bananas to the Beat," "Rock Stop," "Coast to Polka"), and even a three-song suite of atmospheric industrial music that functions as a miniature invisible soundtrack. The dark lyrical concerns and futurist electronics immediately lifted Yello above the rut of Kraftwerk imitators. [This edition of Solid Pleasure, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Unbelievable

How Yello never got the recognition as one for the most inventive electronic band of the 80's I'll never know. There isn't a single aspect of this debut album that doesn't drip with originality, vision and outright riotous FUN. The vocals are theatrical, loony, passionate and distinctly nuts. The sounds are polished, thumping and epic and take you on journey across the musical globe.

Unlike almost every other band in those early years, they refused to pigeon-hole themselves with a 'sound' or even a style... and maybe that alone made it hard for people to get their heads around them, but for the rest of us, they stood out heads and shoulders above the rest.

Yello have a huge part in the history of electronic, they were the antithesis of Kraftwerk, rather than narrow down to perfection, they pushed down the walls of convention, set up a poker table, ordered a cocktail and laughed at the rest of them.

Fab band, fab album, fab tunes!!!

Loved this album when it was first issued and still love it. "Bananas to the Beat" is my favorite!

Yello invented trance and electronica by just doing what they do.
