Broke my heart at the Funplex (yes you did, yes you did)




Dear God I love them so much. I have been really really looking forward to this album and it really doesn't disappoint. Every track is a sunshine filled poptastic joy, from the exuberant opener "Pump" (best opening line of an album in a long time - "I look at you and I'm ready to pump") to the closing bars of "Keep This Party Going", if you don't have a smile on your face and a bounce in your step with this album, then check your pulse as you could be dead. The bonus live track of "Private Idaho" made me shed tears of joy as I supressed the urge to dance down the street. Sixteen years since their last studio album, this is a long awaited and frankly joyous return, so welcome back, B-52's. It's been a dull place without you.

How magical.
I'm listening to music on shuffle. A second before I clicked on this post, up comes "Ultraviolet" from Funplex.

I was just going to ask you what you thought of it.
