5.0 out of 5 stars Synth rock at its most potent July 23 2006
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a synth fest set to driving and bubbling beats celebrating technology, computer games and power politics, executed with plenty of gusto and energy.

Love Missile is thunderous and energetic with lots of echo, unexpected samples and galloping synths, while Atari Baby is slower and atmospheric, reminding me of Alan Vega's psychobilly excursions.

Rockit Miss USA is catchy power pop, Massive Retaliation is a charming mix of beats and samples and Teenage Thunder sounds like Suicide at its most hypnotic and is full of quotes like "money makes the world go round." She's My Man starts with a cheeky quote from the advertising copy for a certain hair gel.

In its innovative use of synthesizer Flaunt It is on a par with Sparks' great masterpiece No. 1 In Heaven or Alan Vega's Collision Drive. Giorgo Moroder's talent was here applied to create a stirring, over-the-top post-modern rock statement. I still love it after all these years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Sputnik Corporation Feb. 1 2003
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the weirdest and most exciting novelty albums I ever encountered came out in 1986 in Britain and didn't make its way to the states till the following year. Looking at it, I see that it was way ahead of its time in its techno-punk hybrid, random sampling, and a product of the computer and technology-obsessed 1980's.
"Love Missile F1-11" opens with Martin Degville crying out "I Wanna Be A Star" before the signature Sputnik sound, a backbeat of quick-paced Generation X-ish technodisco punctuated by an electropump bass, combined with sliding punk guitar, computerizing samples of Beethoven's 9th, the William Tell overture, Japanese vocals, Ms. Pacman dying, distorted effects. This song featured in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. A few lines condemn a vision of Reagan's America: "U.S. bombs floating overhead." and "multi-millions still unfed.
"Atari Baby" would be Sputnik's equivalent of Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face", a quiet song with a running percussive beat and the usual effects, with some female vocalists going "d-d-d-d..aah aah".
"Sex Bomb Boogie" is as crazy as "Love Missile", opening with that piercing space guitar and the pounding technodisco. There are a few weird effects but not as much as its cousin. It ends with a girl going, "Mmm, that was fantastic!" Which it was.
"Rockit Miss USA" has imitated effects of Dirty Harry, "Go ahead, make my day", someone saying "Get away from the gun!" and a black guy asking subway shooter Bernard Goetz for $5.00. There's a constant anti-gun theme going on here and a Cold War one as well. On one occasion one hears "Reagan rocks my baby" another time, "Moscow rocks my baby."
"21st Century Boy" opens with Bach's Fugue before a computerized voice announces: "From the 21st century, we present the next generation of rock and roll, starring... [the names of the band members]" and a technobeat rivalling "Love Missile". Much of the lyrics are a description what would be seen in the future, "satellite TV, laser beams, Chinese-speaking split-TVs,..etc." The term "Elvis 1990" accurately describes the sound. "I am the ultimate product" is what Sputnik would be for the music of their world.
"Massive Retaliation" samples a bit from Beethoven's Fifth." the repeated refrain "Shut up" a booming drum beat, and words that don't add up to any kind of theme: "Stimulation, baby/inspiration, baby" finishing up with "Moscow hit back" or "Bangkok hit back." Nothing about nuclear war here.
By the last two songs, the same crazy sound is there, which is fine, except that there's nothing unique to pick out.
Oh, inbetween each song are paid commercials for certain products, such as Tempo Magazine, Network 21, Studio Line of Loreal, the Sputnik Corporation. They're brief snippets, but add to the feeling of music and technology for the 21st century.
I envision a metropolis embodying concepts from Blade-Runner or William Gibson with this kind of music. 17 years after its release, it still rocks out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flaunt it is Awesome! June 25 2000
By Stephen J Veeder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You gotta like this album. Futuristic samples and whiz guitar work by Tony James (Generation X w/Billy Idol) is incredible. Still have the LP and posters from the concert. Pick it up before it's gone.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Flaunt It" if you got it. Nov. 9 2006
By Troy-david Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's been over a decade since I last owned this album, but it had the same impact now as it did then.

Each song has that unique electronica 'zap' from one track to the next. The bridges between the songs are pretty humourous as well.

From the first track ("Love Missile F-111") to the last ("She's My Man"), Sigue Sigue Sputnik serves up a dish that any fan of Cyberpunk, Anime, comic-book superheroes, and over-sexed media can enjoy over and over.

I give it four stars, especially for the tracks "Teenage Thunder", "Sex-Bomb-Boogie", "21st Century Boy", and "Massive Retaliation".

It's an ultra-chic thrill ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flaunt this! Nov. 1 2011
By Sean O. Ferry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If cyberpunk was a term that could describe a band then Sigue sigue sputnik would be just that, They where a piece of the puzzle that made electronica, industrial, and I don't think Marilyn Manson would of had a clue if it was for these pre-Armageddon Atari babies, I have been with these guys since the original release, and that may say something about my age but hey, At least I had a chance to live there spectacle, and go crazy in my youth with this fluid computer generated rock and roll. Nothing come close to even competing with there greatness, and originality. but there is still time for the youth to hear real technical wizardry in this age of Corporate generated junk. Just buy the album... buy the albummmmmmmm.
