  Not as good as I expected

Disapointed. Ive seen them live & they were amazing. Which prompted me into buying the album. It just doesnt cut the mustard. I only listened to it the once now it collects dust.

  not bad, but probably overrated?

it's a hype, but it didn't really impress me or blow my mind.
although it's fun and catchy music i think it not really all that 'WAW'.
the gimmick is there and probably it's better live, but that has to be confirmed.

Some of the songs on this album are really good however there are one or two that i find really, really boring. Worth buying. Or you might wanna just purchase some of their singles

  Pretty good

I have to admit, the Ting Tings are probably my favourite band, their sound to me seems original, so if you want different, this is the CD for you!
But I must say, some songs are strange and not very interesting, but overall, pretty good.

  Disappointing

After hearing a few singles, i decided to buy it and was quite disappointed with it.
Pretty average

Love them or hate them....The Ting Tings...... are a prime example of well crafted pop music.

The format of the band is not really that new but with the collection of songs presented on 'We started nothing' it is unlikely that anyone who buys the album will be that disappointed?

With the backing of a major label and the promotion budget to match, there was no way you were not going to hear about or see this duo.

Yes there will be those that dislike them for one reason or another but in reality the Ting Tings have presented us with a few catch phrases and some nice hook-lines.

In short they are a pop duo that can appeal across markets.....from kids to clubbers (via re-mixes) and also those of us that can just see well crafted pop music for what it is.

The title of the album may actually be a statement of fact, in that they really have not started anything, but I think the Ting Tings have a sense of humour?

All in all they have done well and I hope they shift enough units to keep the Major Label happy.

I would recommend this cd....... if you are a fan (you will be very pleased) or just buy it to hate it, then in a few years you might listen again and think hmmm they were a bit clever and come to appreciate it but if you don't you can still hate it!

I came to this band quit late, having never heard of the them until a couple of months ago, But I am now a fan, Each track on this album could be a single, and would do well. But as a complete piece of work it is even better. I just seem to be listening to it all the time, and can't get the music out of my mind.
The Ting Tings Rule OK!

  Boring beyond belief

| | See all zerocool1's reviews (21)

The most boring band of 2008 and because of all the hype that surrounds them, we'll have to endure them for another 12 months. They are completely bland and don't have an ounce of talent between them.

I've seen buskers with more talent than these two. Don't buy this crap.
