By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 23 2006
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.

HASH(0x9dde3e1c) 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.
HASH(0x9dde3e70) out of 5 stars Unique & fun! Sept. 17 2015

I have a very eclectic taste in music but I must admit my favorite genre is Classic Rock. This is NOT classic rock but it is so unique I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with a eclectic taste in music. "Flaunt It" fills all my Sigue Sigue Sputnik needs. I was introduced to this C.D. back in 1986 by a young lady I was dating she stood 5 foot 2 inches tall unless you factored in her bright blue hair that stood straight from her head like a propane flame & stiletto heels on her feet that made her tiny frame appear closer to 6 foot 8 inches tall! She was heavily into "New Wave" , "Punk" & "Alternative Rock". I only had to hear "Flaunt It" once to realize there was a lot going on here musically, The songs were catchy & I was able to get past the techno sound easily because there was so much to hear. I remember back all those years ago thinking this sounds ahead of its time, kind of futuristic. Well I just listened to it today on a really good surround sound stereo system & it still sounds futuristic. With all its snippets of classical music, looped phrases from movies, shredding guitar riffs & bizarre advertisements between songs coming alternatively from every speaker channel it gave me the feeling I was at a carnival & swept up in a tornado that had also swooped up a tenacious techno punk band that refused to stop playing & we all kept swirling around my living room until the music finally stopped!!! I can't lie , while this brought back some good memories for me & was a lot of fun to hear again I can't tell you its the greatest music you will ever hear! I can say with a certain amount of confidence that it may be music like you've never heard before. And is such a unique novelty you might appreciate having it in your collection, especially if your musical taste lean towards New Wave, Punk or Techno Club genre's. Or if your like me & have a very broad range of music you can enjoy listening to.

HASH(0x9ddf0168) 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.

HASH(0x9ddf069c) out of 5 stars Once in a lifetime recording Jan. 15 2016
By Lucas Biddle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When this album came out in 1986 I was 14 years old going on 15. It wasn't something I'd have bought myself, but when my schoolmates played it frequently on a bus excursion it grew on me. Not only that, the first track of the album was featured in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

In the year or two after its release, the album was played at various parties I attended, during which my schoolmates and I got comfortably numb from alcohol. The music, the drink and adolescence went together very well, and a strong bond with this album was forged.

I still listen to it sometimes in my mid 40s and reminisce about that time in my life that was, in retrospect, glorious (to paraphrase G.K. Chesterton, if he actually said this).

I will love the music on this album till the day I die.
