iTunes Review

Considering how popular and influential the '80s are to musicians coming of age in the 21st century, it makes sense that Minneapolis’ Suburbs should reunite in 2013 and release their first album of new material in 27 years. The band’s 1984 hit “Love Is the Law” has been an anthem for same-sex marriage proponents who finally saw Minnesota make it legal in May 2013. These positive times for the remaining band members (guitarist Bruce Allen died in 2009) have led to an album that’s as powerful as any The Suburbs made in their prime. A horn section punches up several opening highlights, while Chan Poling and Beej Chaney sing with conviction and style. “Born Under a Good Sign” and “Turn the Radio On” show a positive and spirited sound that’s both reminiscent of the group's early-'80s glory days with just the right touch of modernity. “I Liked It Better When You Loved Me” is a smart, poignant ballad that proves classic songwriting never goes out of style.

The Burbs are Back!

I have been a long time Suburbs fan, been following them since 1985, own all their releases, and I LOVE this record. This record to me, is a natural progression from their self titled release "Suburbs" back in 1986, which by the way, was their last record. It might have taken 27 years to release the follow up, but it feels like it could have been released just a year or two after. "Turn the Radio On" is definitely my favorite, and written for the late wife of Chan Poling, it's a beautiful celebration of their love for each other. "What's It Like Out There?" is probably the most powerful song on the album, powerful in the sense of emotional. It's a great tribute to the late Bruce C. Allen, the late guitarist for the band. Other standouts include "Reset The Party," "Born Under A Good Sign" and "You've Got To Love Her." While they might not sing about Cows, Chemistry Sets or Cig Machines, and some of that bizarre quirkiness is not there, don't blame them too much, we all have to grow up sometime. This is still a great record, and fits in beautifully with the rest of The Suburbs catalog...


Rockstar performance! So excited to have you guys back in the mix on my playlist.

Let's get started

An absolutely stellar album. Layering in depth by harmonic contrast, speaking with crudeness that translates into a beauty both reflective of both the pain and joy of life. Great introductions to songs coupled with fantastic composition and wonderfully simple yet resoundingly true lyrics that speak to both the inner child in us all which is confined by social norms and has experienced the pain of, just that, experience. Passed the acid test which was a 280 mile odyssey where I found myself tapping to the beat and singing to the songs as I had the infectious album on repeat. An absolutely fantastic album. Glad I stumbled upon it.


Formed: 1977 in Minneapolis, MN

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

While the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, and Soul Asylum were the Minneapolis bands that took the city's underground rock to international attention, the Suburbs were the Twin Cities' biggest local act of the 1980s, packing the biggest clubs in town with a smart, challenging, and darkly witty combination of punk energy and snark, new wave polish, tough guitars, and hooky dance rhythms. The Suburbs were formed in 1977 by vocalist and keyboardist Chan Poling and vocalist and lead guitarist Blaine John ("Beej")...
