iTunes Editors’ Notes

As long as guitarist Andy Gill can lay down a guitar line and singer Jon King can rail against capitalism, there can be a Gang of Four. Sixteen years since their last studio effort, Gill and King hitch up bassist Thomas McNeice and drummer Mark Heaney and resurrect the sound that put these guys on the cutting edge at the onset of the ‘80s. In the interim, they’ve influenced innumerable groups, but there’s nothing quite like the seductive funk of “I Can’t Forget Your Lonely Face,” which sounds like David Bowie with serrated edges. “You’ll Never Pay for the Farm” has a driving and hypnotic grind to its discontent. “It Was Never Gonna Turn Out Too Good” works with electronically manipulated sounds. “She Said” rails with ominous radio tower interference. Gill’s guitar is particularly crisp for “You Don’t Have to Be Mad.” The band may be down to the original frontmen, but they still commit to their sonic and political convictions like the full band of old.

Customer Reviews

Really Good!

So glad Gang of Four is back with this album, it does not dissapoint. Never mind it's not the original line up, it sounds like they got back together and rehearsed Entertainment and went into the studio and recorded this. It's that good.
Hopefully, this album will turn the younger fan base on to Gang of four and some kid will go buy Entertainment after hearing this, and become the next Iggy Pop. If you have the chance to see them live, do not miss it.

Great ComeBack Album

Have been a Gang of Four Fan for awhile...Loved the first album.."Entertainment"

The subsequent albums & songs I have been luekwarm on...Liked a few songs here and there
But with this album they are back with an uptempo beat and more livelier vocals..more like "Entertainment" musically
The songs arent as somber and depressing....more energetic
Love the sound!

In This album the songs/lyrics are geared more toward interpersonal relationships and social interactions
and less to do with political issues and social commentary

They have made themselves relevant again..capturing the non personal, smart phone climate

Also get the song "Second Life" released a few years ago..GREAT song...Classic Go4 song...Whitey remix is the best

New Gang of Four!!!!

Too soon to tell since this just came out. May need time for it to settle af ter a few more listens. Parts remind of "Hard" which I remember was really unsettling when it came out because it sounded so un-Gang Of Four. By that I mean it had more pop hooks to it and a jarring contrast to someone who liked the intensity of "Entertainment" and "Solid Gold". As time went on, I grew to really understand and like "Hard." So I will give this one a shot. Gang of 4 tour Detroit please!

Formed in 1977 by Leeds University students Jon King (vocals), Andy Gill (guitar), Dave Allen (bass), and Hugo Burnham (drums), Gang of Four (along with the Fall, Mekons, and Liliput) produced some of the most exhilarating and lasting music of the early English post-punk era of 1978-1983. Fueled by the fury of punk rock and radical political theory, Gang of Four successfully welded the two in an inspired display of polemics and music that addressed the vagaries of life in the modern world (including...
