Performer Notes
  • Delivered eight years after the reunited Blondie's second effort, 2003's The Curse of Blondie, 2011's Panic of Girls rushes forth on a sleek new wave disco pulse that's entirely unconcerned about whether `80s retro is in style this season or not. This is fashionable music existing outside the realm of fashion, Blondie updating their classic styles -- disco-rock, reggae-fied pop, garage bubblegum -- just enough to modernize yet not enough to be unrecognizable. Certainly, Blondie bear some signs of their age -- Debbie Harry's voice may sound a little rough around the edges but the band also has the casual professionalism that comes from decades of play -- but this is not a nostalgia trip, something that's evident from the new millennium paranoia of its opener, "D-Day." Modern topics collide with contemporary sounds and if not everything here is convincing -- notably, the Parisian kitsch of "Le Bleu" strikes a discordant note -- the band's cosmopolitan cool remains attractive. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Professional Reviews
Spin (p.80) - "With synths buzzing like neon, reggae barely winking at dancehall, and Debbie Harry intoning lyrics in French and Spanish, it sounds more '80s than the actual '80s."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hankfully the best tracks on PANIC OF GIRLS have some edge and bite. 'Horizontal Twist' is a neat conflation of irreverent garage-punk and airy, synthesized chorus..."

Format:CD (0 Disc)
Release Date:14 July, 2011
