By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER on Aug. 31 2007
Format: Audio CD
This album, released in the middle of the 80s, was a career-defining moment for the Bangles. After the mild reception of their great debut "All Over the Place" (loved by critics but virtually ignored by radio stations, and thus a low seller), the band decided to polish their raw, 60s influenced sound and to record material that, while contemporary, would still remain true to their musical roots. And the result was stunning.

While harshly criticized by many for turning the band into a slicker pop band, the selection of material here is impeccable pop in the best possible way. Each song perfectly blends in, and there is not a single bad track here. The public mainly remembers this album for its two huge hit singles ("Manic Monday" and "Walk like an Egyptian"), and to a lesser degree for two other moderate hits ("If she knew what she wants" and "Walking down your street"), but there's plenty more to enjoy here. The emergence of Susanna Hoffs as the band's most identifiable trait is obvious on this album; however, it's the ever growing musical presence of bassist and singer Michael Steele that gave the band a whole new dimension. Her sultry vocals on their cover of "September gurls" are amazing, while her moving self-penned dark ballad "Following" was a predecessor to the entire revival of acoustic music that eventually would occur in the subsequent years. And Debbi and Vicki Peterson also turn in the goods, mostly on the bluesy "Return post" and the sun-drenched closer "Not like you". The vocal harmonies of the foursome are flawless on every single track, lifting "Different Light" well above the usual stigma unfairly attached to most of the music that came from that era; in fact, you might say that their 60s influenced vocal harmonies became the trademark of the band.

In the synthesiser-dominated eighties, the Bangles (along with a few others) provided a contrast with their guitar-driven rock music - a throwback to the sixties but with an eighties edge. The Bangles recorded a lot of upbeat fun songs so did not always get the credit they deserved. As this album shows, they also recorded some wonderful ballads.
This is my favorite original Bangles album. It contains two of the three huge international hits that everybody remembers the Bangles for. Manic Monday is an up-tempo rocker. Walk like an Egyptian is a novelty song that (to some people) destroys their credibility but I love it. This album also yielded two lesser hits, If she knew what she wants (the first single off the album) and Walking down your street.
The band wrote most of the songs but Prince wrote Manic Monday, while September gurls is a cover of an Alex Chilton song. Alex originally achieved success with the Box tops but he wrote September furls while he was leader of Big star.
Apart from the great songs already mentioned, there are many wonderful album tracks here including Following, In a different light and Not like you. While Susannah sings lead on the big hits, this album proves that they all have outstanding voices as they all get to be lead singer on at least two songs.
Anybody who loves guitar rock of the type that was common in the sixties and early seventies will surely love the music of the Bangles.

This is basic pop music. There's two good tracks where's a woman singing: "Man*c Monday" and "Walk Like an Egyptian". Other tracks were so terrible, I wasn't able to listen them! If you want serious good pop, there's Kylie Minogue who is the best female vocalist in the world! Try her instead of this!
