This album is the test of whether, deep down inside, you're a cynic. There's an earnestness, a sincerity, and a thrilling honesty to the songs here. The title track is a quiet little classic, but there are many things here far better than the follow-up "Moonbeam" single. "On Tuesday" is a beautiful song by any measure, with delightfully lyrical flute work by Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, and "In the Name of Angels" should very well make your hair stand on end and make you think about all the time you've been wasting in life as you leap into action. It may sound odd but this band is kind of like the "Peanuts" comic strip set to a dance beat--kind at heart, gentle, fun-loving, and intent on saying something real, damn the fashions of the day. As you might guess from the cover, being a child at heart is a good qualification for appreciating this album--but it also offers dreams for the grown mind.

On a personal level, this was one of my favorite albums of the 80's. On a musical level, this is one of the most keenly executed, most perfectly recorded pop albums to grace the music world. Long underappreciated for their place in the musical structure of the 80's (save a Best New Artist Grammy nomination), Ivan and Stefan Doroschuk's high concept, storytelling album revolved around the characters of Johnny and Jenny. The infectous title hit introduces the pair. From 'On Tuesday' (which features Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson on flute) through the closing track, 'The End (Of The World)', the album takes the listener on a magical journey through Ivan's storyworld, ripe with unique musical landscapes. This album stands as the band's crowning achievement...elegant, uplifting and, foremost, fun.

When I was younger I listened to Pop Goes the World and Rythm of Youth constantly. I was just a goofy kid growing up in the suburbs; the music of MWOH was my soundtrack for life. Then I grew up and lost my cassettes. Now that I've finally heard Pop Goes the World again, I forgot how brilliant this eccentric pop outfit from Canada actually is. The music sounds better now than when I was 13. That's all I wanted to say.

Although my tastes have drifted towards progressive rock and metal in the years since this came out, I still love this album. In fact, in a listener-friendly way, it is rather an 80's pop version of 70's art rock (it feels closer to old Genesis than 80's Genesis). It's pretty, bouncy, and has nice touches of pop-friendly art. (The previous album, Folk of the 80's Part III is also great).

Men Without Hats were not one hit wonders as many people might think. They had another hit, "Pop Goes The World" in early 1988. I have all four, full length albums from Men Without Hats: Rhythm Of Youth (1983), Pop Goes The World (1987), In The 21st Century (1989) and Sideways (1991). "Pop Goes The World" is their most cohesive and consistent effort. They were an usual band with unusual ideas for synth-pop music that might have frightened the average 80's keyboard band. Their strengths show on this album with tracks like "Pop Goes The World", "On Tuesday", "O Sole Mio", "Lose My Way", "The Real World", "Moonbeam", "In The Name Of Angels", "Jenny Wore Black", "Walk On Water" and "The End Of The World". Not your average 80's fare, Men Without Hats were a head above many other now forgotten bands. I've noticed that "Safety Dance" is a staple of many radio stations' 80's hour. It's comforting to know that people still enjoy a song I grew up with in a day and age where originality seems to be sacrificed for bland teen pop.

When my spirits are low, this is one of the albums I reach for - cheerful, upbeat and brimming with joy and optimism, but without becoming saccharine...not that I have to be depressed to enjoy a listen. There is a bit less emphasis on synthesizers on this album than on "Rhythm Of Youth" and "Folk Of The 80's", and the production is much much cleaner - excellent, in fact. This is MWH at their best. There are no weak tracks (not counting the minute long interludes). "O Sole Mio," "In The Name Of Angels" and "Jenny Wore Black" are superb songs in the same mold as the title track, "Moonbeam" and "Walk On Water" are faster songs, and "On Tuesday," "Lose My Way" and "The End (Of The World)" are mellower, more lush tracks. Add them all up and you have an extremely solid and consistently enjoyable album, which really deserved more attention than it got. For cheerfulness, it is only topped by Book Of Love's "Candy Carol" (which admittedly can be a bit cloying at times), but for craftmanship and sheer enjoyment there are few albums that can come close to this one. It's easily worth the high import price. Whether you like 80's music or just brilliant, upbeat pop, "Pop Goes The World" is a must-have.

I accidently bought this tape when I was in 6th grade (I thought it was those "at work" guys). I listened to the tape so much that it came undone at the spool. This album changed the way I thought about music and made me set new standards. This album is musically amazing and lyrically inspiring. Everything comes together on "Pop"!
