Product Details


Product Description

"21st Century Eurythmics" -- Uncut, 2007

"Dragonette are a rock band that play pop songs, We Love!" -- Out in The City, 2007

"The album is teeming with hit potential. Sorbara's voice evokes a cool Gwen Stefani, singing sassy ditties about sleeping around, being the other woman and other bad-girl antics. The slick dance-pop fits in somewhere between No Doubt, Goldfrapp and the Scissor Sisters." -- The National Post, 2007

"The new-wavish "Take It Like A Man" and futuristic torch song "True Believer" are two of the most fearsome choruses NME has heard all year" -- NME, 2007

"Think Gwen Stefani fronting The Killers. If you like the Scissor Sisters you'll love this lot." -- The Daily Star, 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome indie electro-pop Dec 30 2007
Format:Audio CD
Dragonette is far better than any other pop act out their, I can't figure out why they aren't huge yet.

If you like new wave, pop, or infectious dance music, buy this disc. It beats the crap outta Gwen Steffani or Pink

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC Album! June 29 2009
By Alexander Eilers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I discovered Dragonette in late 2007 after hunting down their song "Get Lucky" after I heard it on a JC Penney commercial.
What I found was much more than what I expected.
I was blown away.
I'd never heard electro-pop like this before.
The music is unbelievably catchy, Martina's vocals are sexy and sassy, and there is so much variety so the album never gets boring or feels monotonous.
Some great songwriting found on this album.

Stand out tracks: I Get Around, Take It Like A Man, Black Limousine, Marvelous.

If you just like good pop songs, electro-pop songs, whatever, you need this album. I've been listening to it for 2 years straight, and I still love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think you'll discover you may never recover Nov. 8 2007
By CoryRay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this group, but somehow I did, and I am all the better for it. I know some people hate comparisons, but I always find them helpful, so I am going to do it... The official Amazon reviewer got it pretty close to right on - I'd say it sounds like Gwen Stefani fronting the Scissor Sisters for an album co-produced by Duran Duran, Garbage, and Goldfrapp. I think you get the idea. This is ultra-catchy, ultra-fun electro-pop at its best. Every track is great. The album plays like a greatest hits collection, though it's amazingly the group's debut. My favorite tracks are probably "Competition," "True Believer," and "Limousine," but I like them only slightly more than all the others. This is truly addicting and delicious stuff. Definitely one of my albums of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic Dec 14 2007
By L. Stephen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I fully agree with the previous reviewer in terms of artist similarities. I happened to be with a friend at a music store, and heard this on a listening station. I am oh so glad that I did! It's a great CD - content is a little different than standard top 40 stuff (ie. 2nd track lyrics, "your girlfriend's my competition, she is my competition..." but not vulgar. Track 6 makes me happy to be alive. Catchy tunes, and each song changes drastically in composition as you listen to it - it feels like you have more songs than the 11 on here.
4.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem? Oct. 25 2008
By Laurie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I came across this band when one of their songs was mentioned in a blog I was reading. I don't remember what blog it was, or even what song it was, but I looked up the song on youtube - loved it. Clicked another music video on youtube - loved that one too. I came to find out that while their sound may not be something I usually listen to, they did it in such a way that it all worked. Even the songs I maybe wasn't so crazy about at first grew on me with a few more listens (though I do think their strong suite are the faster, more dance-able tracks). I immediately thought Dragonette sounded like a cross between the funky electro-pop of Gwen Stefani and the disco-pop/dance of the Scissor Sisters. And even those comparisons might be too generalized for them...

1. I Get Around - 9/10. Very dance-able.

2. Competition - 7.5/10. Catchy song. Something you'll bop around to with your headphones on.

3. Take It Like a Man - 9/10. Again, very catchy. Great hooks.

4. True Believer - 5.5/10. An ok song, but not amazing.

5. Another Day - 6/10. Like I said, the slower songs aren't their strong suite, but its not bad.

6. Get Lucky - 5.5/10. Kind of a weird song. It has almost a rag-time feel to it. But its upbeat and happy.

7. Jesus Doesn't Love Me - 9.5/10. I LOVE this song. One of my favorites.

8. Black Limousine - 8/10. I really like this song.

9. Gold Rush - 9/10. Probably my second favorite song off this album. The bridge is the best part of the song, in my opinion.

10. You Please Me - 7/10. Slower song, but still singable.

11. Marvelous - 9/10. This song is greatly influenced by Indian music (something I'm not into usually), but I LOVE it. Again, one of my faves.

Their cover of Calvin Harris' 'The Girls' (Which they rename 'The Boys') is also a really good track, however, it doesn't appear on this album OR on their EP. Why? I don't know. Maybe it will be on their next one, but it is a really great song as well. It starts off really odd with the talking intro, but it gets so catchy and singable that I love it now!

I also recommend the songs off their EP:

- Magical Fantasy
- Shock Box
- Teacher Teacher
3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre album with one great song Dec 30 2013
By canneddirt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Purchased this album for one song (Get Around) and it turns out it is the only song I really like. However, purchasing the physical media allows me to encode the MP3s at a much higher bitrate than those provided by Amazon (or Itunes for that matter). Too bad I couldn't get any enjoyment from the rest of the material.
