Adam Ant is back! And what a comeback it is! Absolutely amazing album. Raw sound and mixed genres, yes he has grown as a musician and artist but this is no bad thing. Favourites for me are cool zombie, punkyoungirl, cradle your hatred, shrink, and the one with a swear word for a title, haha. Since I got this havent stopped listening to it, perfection!

  Ant music is dead !!!!!

Waited so long for some new material after being so let down with the last few albums, those long years have been wasted with this album, sorry Adam, you always be my childhood hero but this new stuff utter rubbish, painful to listen too...that musics lost its taste so try another flavour, just not this ant music :-(

I have been looking forward to a new Adam Ant album for years and have to say i am very impressed by just how good it is. Some seem to be against this as they don't see this a proper studio album,just demos. But i say,sounding this good,i don't care how this album came about,i'm just glad it did.
From the opener to the end,there's no denying it's still Adam,from the chants to the unique music style to the quirky lyrics,it may not sell anywhere near as many copies as albums from years ago,but it certainly has something about it that leaves me in no doubt,he's still got a lot of talent.
The odd titles have enough brilliance to back up the unusual ideas. A lot of it does sound like ideas Adam's been carrying around for years and finally got around to putting down,but i wouldn't say that loses any quality,it all sounds great. Some may not like the sound of this cd and argue Adam's made a mistake,i say hardly,give it a chance before listening to the negtives. If Adam can keep this up,then i'm really glad to have him back and this album will be played many a time,for me it's quality.

As a blue eyed 13 year old I blown away by Kings of the Wild Frontier.
From a time when creativity was at the fore.
I was sceptical about this re birth of my hero.
Firstly I bought tickets for his recent tour. My wife came along with me with a look of I would rather be shopping. Adam was on stage stage for almost two hours and my wife was jumping around like a teenager..enough said there.
The album is different to say the least. It's not over produced to the point of being totally sterile, a little rough around the edges but I can say hand on heart I love it.
There are influences from the early days which pop up from time to time.
Stand out tracks for me so far are Vince Taylor, Dirty Beast and the fabulous Cradle Your Hatred.
The other 14 tracks are growers.
I heard that some of the major labels were fighting each other to make this album but to his credit Adam has recorded it on his own label in his own way and probably the better for it.
Ant Music is back....

  SkegAnt, Long Overdue...................

Well the wait is almost over, i can almost taste the anticipation (no pun intended).
Having seen Adam and his new band play twice within the past year, i can't tell you just how excited i am about this long overdue release.
Early highlight is the track Vince Taylor, which was premiered on the recent tour.
Antmusic has certainley not lost it;s flavour, so do yourself a favour and get this pre ordred NOW!!!
