Customer Reviews

complete and great

Been a NP fan for a few years, have Mass Romantic and Electric Version in my collection. Both those albums have music I really love on them, intermixed with some songs I always skip because they are just silly or annoying to me lyrically and musically. I think that's the product of the divided duties among the band members who get to showcase their songs, and they are just different stylistically yet jammed together on the same record. That problem has been solved on Brill Bruisers. I heard Champions of Red Wine and Backstairs on XM. Those songs reflect the best of what NP offered on previous albums, so I decided to get Brill Bruisers expecting the usual "skippable" filler content. There is no filler in this new album. So many great influences bubble up in these songs. I hear Buzzcocks, ELO, Stranglers, Futureheads, Styx, B-52s harmonies. It's got insistent driving bass guitar and sharp harmonies, clever lyrics and hooks in every song. I'm trying to limit myself to one listen front to back each day, but it's hard because I keep whistling the tunes. Their best album by far.

Great pop record!

AC Newman is once again channeling his inner-Jeff Lynne, and it's a very good thing!

Another great album from The New Pornographers!

This is another very strong album from the new pornographers. I've had a chance to listen to the entire album a few times and there are a number of really good songs. Some of my favorite so far are "Backstairs," "Bill Bruisers,"You Tell Me Where,""Born with the Sound," "Fantasy Fools." Heck, the entire album is really good!

Newman began the band in 1996 as a lark after releasing Zumpano's Goin' Through Changes; one by one, the other members joined the fold, and the New Pornographers' first official rehearsal took place in 1997. By the following year, the group had completed...
