iTunes Review

In a decision that would ultimately rip the band apart, The Go-Go’s attempted on their final album to appeal to both the punk fan base from which they had originally emerged, and the Eighties radio landscape that had made them Top 40 icons. Producer Martin Rushent — known for his work with British art-punks The Buzzcocks and the Stranglers — was brought in to bring an edge back to The Go-Go’s, but a spiky sheen couldn’t disguise the fact that Talk Show fully embraced the adult-oriented pop the group had hinted at on Vacation. Despite its personality crisis (and one of the Eighties’ most embarrassing album covers) Talk Show catches the group in top form on songs like “I’m The Only One,” “Beneath the Blue Sky,” and “Turn To You.” And while one can hear Belinda Carlisle bordering her future as an AOR staple on “Capture the Light” and “You Thought,” “Head Over Heels” might be the group’s most sublime synthesis of sharp edges and pillowy pop.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding Pop/Rock - Crunchy guitars, slamming drums, great harmonies

This CD is really incredible - great rock, catchy hooks, and if you like slamming pop, with loud drums and great harmonies, get this.

Even thought this album only has ten songs it was still really good!

The Go-Go's were the most popular all-female band to emerge from the punk/new wave explosion of the late '70s and early '80s, becoming one of the first commercially successful female groups that wasn't controlled by male producers or managers. While their hit singles -- "We Got the Beat," "Our Lips Are Sealed," "Vacation," "Head Over Heels" -- were bright, energetic new wave pop, the group was an integral part of the Californian punk scene. And they did play punk rock, even if many of their rougher...
