The new Gossip album is possibly the worst thing I've heard in a really, really long time. The song "Men In Love" sounds like 80's era Cher. Gross.
I always liked the Gossip because they seemed to progress and reinvent themselves a bit with each new record, but this record totally feels overproduced and stagnant. Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of Standing In The Way Of Control any longer, but when it came out it felt innovative and exciting. This record feels like treading water, and I wonder if it would sound the same had Rick Rubin not had his hand in it. I miss Movement era Gossip.
Honestly, I think this might just be the most dissapointing record of the year.
