ABC avait été un coup de foudre immédiat pour moi, avec leur brillantissime 'Lexicon of Love", coup de foudre confirmé par une excellente prestation scénique le jour de la St Valentin qui avait suivi (on était en 1983). Et puis la passion s'était très vite étiolée, à cause d'un second album sans inspiration, puis d'un troisième assez consternant, suite à quoi Martin Fry avait disparu des radars, a priori du fait de sérieux problèmes de santé. C'est donc un véritable plaisir que de retrouver le glamour chic et la pétulance mélodique de ABC, ramené au duo Fry - White, dans cet "Alphabet City" de très bonne facture. "When Smokey Sings", en particulier, est un petit bijou pop qui peut figurer parmi les meilleures réussites de Martin Fry, et plusieurs autres morceaux retrouvent l'élégance suprême des premiers jours. Globalement, l'album reste néanmoins nettement en dessous de son illustre prédécesseur, paradoxalement parce qu'il reste trop dans la même ligne tout en nous décevant par ses orientations un peu plus américaines, un peu plus banalement funky (la faute à la production de Bernard Edwards ?). ABC n'est plus (ou "pas") un groupe exceptionnel - ça, on le savait depuis longtemps -, juste un honnête dealer de sensations sophistiquées mais superficielles.

HASH(0x91ca8510) étoiles sur 5 ALPHABETICALLY YOURS 20 mai 2003
Par Michael Butts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When looking back to those dazzling disco/techno pop days of the eighties, there are so many acts that had one or two songs that were really memorable. ABC, however, rises above this "one hit wonder" status, and none so as eloquently as in this "Alphabet City."
What has always worked for these debonair gents is their flair for esoterically correct vocals and their stunning string arrangements. And while many of their songs can be considered a little "glitzy" or "forced," the songs on this collection work because of their unique approach to their subject matters. "When Smokey Sings" is a tribute to Smokey Robinson, and has some clever lyrics, and while it may be seen as a self-confident ode to themselves, I think it's more of a salute to a man whose influence in popular music cannot be underestimated. The synthesized instrumentals saluting "Minneapolis" and "Chicago" are filler fluff, but not bad in that respect. For me, the album's showcase is both the opening "Night You Murdered Love," and it's counterpart (The Whole Story). In this version, the female responds to the male's accusations. It's done in rap and it's so funny and appropriate; also shows that rap music can be done with orchestral backups and gives the singer much more support and is much more interesting than the garbled garbage that exists in rap today.
A clever, well produced and truly listenable musical experience. Hats off to Martin Fry and Mark White.
RECOMMENDED.

HASH(0x91caa3e4) étoiles sur 5 Nothing can compare! 28 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

What is it about ABC? If you're familiar with their albums, you know what I mean... there's something about them that seems so wonderfully starry-eyed, from the twinkly styles that decorate their music to their love of filling both their lyrics and their album covers with references to beautiful clouds, starry nights, stars (LOTS of those!) and lovely cityscapes at midnight. That's part of the reason I love them so, of course. There's no denying that their work, as catchy and funky as it is, is part of the great "starry-eyed disco" tradition, if you know what I mean, music created that seems to be dropped from the same edge of heaven that gave us Saturday Night Fever's gorgeous Bee Gee tunes and The Electric Light Orchestra--music which is not only dazzlingly fun to dance to but is also beathtakingly beautiful at the same time. And WOW, WHAT A VOICE that Martin Fry has (in elegance and range, it can top George Michael's)! The only thing that amazes me is how this album can be out of print in the USA when it had so many hits on it in this country--deservedly so. "When Smokey Sings", their tribute to Smokey Robinson, still shines on and the entire album continues from there in the same note. A masterpiece--and be sure to also check out "How To Be A Zillionaire" and "Abracadabra", if you can! CHEERS!

HASH(0x91caa6c0) étoiles sur 5 Lexicon Of Love revisited 30 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This fourth ABC album marked a return to the sound of their debut, and even though Beauty Stab and How To Be A Zillionaire were good albums, this blue-eyed soul is the type of music that suits Martin Fry and Mark White best. The sales revealed that the public thought so as well. Big, lush production with layers of keyboards and string arrangements on funky rhythm tracks is the essence of this album, on which The Night You Murdered Love (a great Chic pastiche), funk/disco thumper Think Again, the rocking Ark-Angel and the delicate ballad Bad Blood stand out, showcasing Fry's typically quirky lyrics. I'm probably not the only person wishing that ABC will one day return with more of this. Please.

HASH(0x91caabf4) étoiles sur 5 24 Carat Plastic! 1 février 2006
Par G. Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Another very nice ABC reissue CD package - this one contains many 80s PWL remixes and BONUS tracks, including the cool B-sides "Minneapolis" (paying homage to Jam & Lewis) and "Chicago" (paying homage to Marshall Jefferson and the early house scene), but the real gem here is the previously unreleased "24 CARAT PLASTIC," which sounds like "When Smokey Sings - Part Deux" - a really amazing "lost" ABC track I have never heard before - and I'm a big fan, so that's worth the price of admission alone, but new liner notes/original sleeve graphics are nice, too!
HASH(0x91ca8168) étoiles sur 5 Sums Up ABC's 80's Musical Adventures Very Well 7 janvier 2012
Par Andre S. Grindle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Officially this was not ABC's final album of the 1980's. At the same time it did a lot to some up these survivors of the 1980's. In many ways the 80's had a few different pop cultural periods. And when each one was over,it was over. There was new-wave/synth pop early on,then it evolved into a more dance/pop sound and by decades end it was getting into different house/DJ dance music variations. ABC had seen themselves through the first two of those movements very cleanly. Even surviving a bit of a near miss with their second (and under appreciated) sophomore album Beauty Stab. They came back with vigor to spare on their follow up How to Be a Zillionaire and stayed on track. Even if as the decade wore on pop music was becoming less and less fashionable,especially with more adult listeners ABC remained on a roll after this. Even as pop music listeners found other things to listen to. But creatively and commercially they were very much in their peak when they made this,their fourth album. And it shows.

Basically this album features songs that,both musically and lyrically are more balanced than anything since their debut The Lexicon Of Love. Presented almost as a loose follow up with bluish cover art and a movie poster like liner not presentation the songs here very much stick out as well oiled...80's pop basically,bringing in all their elements from the Motown inspired "When Smokey Sings",with a similar rhythm to the Smokey/Steve Wonder track "Tears Of A Clown",praising Smokey and (seemingly) Marvin Gaye as influences to the band. Excellent artists to be inspired by musically anyway,especially for pop/soul oriented people. "The Night You Murdered Love","Think Again,"Rage And Regret" and "Ark Angel" all have a more down to Earth pop/funk-dance sound without a lot of the heavy sound attack of the proceeding album. Rhythm and catchy melody are the kye to these songs. "King Without A Crown","Rage And Regret" and "One Day" showcase a heavy contemporary (for 1987) sophistifunk influence and a somewhat more philosophical lyrical bent than the more direct musings of the past.

The album closes with one of it's finest cuts "Minneapolis". Needless to say,it's totally a Jam-Lewis/SOS Band styled number musically,not dissimilar to what you might hear on a record such as Sands of Time. To be honest it's kind of too bad Jam/Lewis didn't produce ABC as they did Human League and Robert Palmer. Their style of polished,electronic sophistifunk would've been ideal for ABC's stylized sound,probing melodies and lyrics. Over the years I've heard ABC's singles and always been on the cusp of picking up a compilation of them. But being an album listener I had this feeling it might be the best way to deal with their particular musical bent. And it was an excellent choice too. ABC craft these wonderful little mini synth/pop/dance/funk symphonies,complete with strong arrangements and harmonies on their singles. But they definitely carry that over into album length concepts as well. All of ABC's first four albums are very strong musical affairs. Full of liveliness,energy and some extremely celer buts of writing. And to hear them all back to back..well at least on my end I know what I've been missing all this time.
