Product Description

Brand new studio recordings from Canadian New Wavers, Ivan Doroschuk and Men Without Hats, produced by Dave Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson). Men Without Hats have been creating iconic and irresistible pop music for three decades. Their hit song "Safety Dance" was a breakout success and top ten single in multiple countries in May 1983. Led by charismatic front man, Ivan Dorschuk, the band has surged back starting with a breakout show at 2011's SXSW and followed by an extensive, well-received tour across North America with 80's stalwarts, The Human League and The B-52's.

I seriously LOVE this album...it's everything great from my 80s youth AND Men Without Hats. I really didn't appreciate this band until I accidentally stole (honest) my friend's copy of Pop Goes the World in '92. I adore that album start to finish and I adore Love in the Age of War, too. My favorites are too many to list, actually, and there's not even one that stands out more to be at the top. MAYBE Head Above Water or Girl with the Silicon Eyes. Hard to say, LOVE it. Love that they went retro with the synths, too. (Can you tell I like it, lol)

ONLY slight and totally liveable letdown was that I bought the hard-copy vs the iTunes download because I wanted the credits, etc - more detail, whatever else would be included. NADA! :( But again, I can live with that.

Essentially if you love MWH, you should love this album. It's so unabashedly 80s (to me) in all the best ways. Enjoy!

I'm writing this after having just seen this tour and it blew me away. This is Men Without Hats completely returning to form with their best CD since Pop Goes The World. Ivan is the only original 'Hat' left but that never mattered to me. Ivan is and always will be Men Without Hats. He's the driving force, primary songwriter and he generally played the majority of the instruments on all MWH CDs. Saying that, though, he has recruited a stellar lineup this time around with Lou Dawson (secondary and backing vocals, tons of synths and programming), James Love (aggressive, driving guitars) and Rachel Ashmore (additional synths and additional backing vocals). To top that off, here is a band who actually cares to listen and talk to their fans after shows. Good people.

Now, on to the CD. This CD gets 5 stars from me just for the succession of these 3 songs: Everybody Knows, The Girl With The Silicon Eyes and This War. This is pure MWH as everyone will have remembered but with a shot of adrenaline. Everybody Knows could easily have been on Rhythm Of Youth or Folk Of The 80's (Part III) but it's much more amped-up than those CDs are. Ivan's distinctive voice shines through and you know immediately who you are listening to. The next track, though, is a career highpoint IMHO. The Girl With The Silicon Eyes has become my new favourite MWH song. For me, it's up there with Living In China, I Know Their Name, Security and In The Name Of Angels. This is MWH as you've never heard them before.

Men Without Hats have returned after several years with the album of their career. 'Love in the Age of War' is a compact work consisting of 11 songs (1 being an intro). It's very well-produced by Dave Ogilvie. Each one of the songs is amazing with the best being the 1st single "Head Above Water". It's probably their best song ever, very catchy... familiar yet forward looking. The lyrics and music throughout is a highlight as well. If given a chance, a few songs could become hits on the radio. In all, I'm very impressed with this recording. Please give it a try and support a great Canadian band.

Many synth pop fans will be excited to see Ivan back in business, albeit with a band of new hires rather than any of the original Men. But the baritone voice is back, and it's great to hear it again. The songs on this new album are ... well, all pretty similar to each other, mostly up-tempo, focusing on a very pure retro-synth sound that becomes rather wearing after a while. MWH's last effort, NHBTP, also had the same issue, and was even duller. The thing is that Ivan can write some great songs, and two or three here are worth repeated listens. But overall I was hoping for more variety in approach -- when compared to later '80s masterpieces like "Pop Goes the World" or "In the 21st Century," whose intelligence, lush production and near-symphonic arrangements gave them a real emotional punch, this album comes off as a semi-ironic, retro-focused attempt to resurrect the earliest incarnations of MWH for a new hipster audience, though with notably thinner and less interesting results. More inventive production and arrangements might have revealed Ivan's talents to better advantage. Among fave synth bands of the 80s, rather more substantial efforts at return and reinvention have recently been put out by OMD, Ultravox and Blancmange, for example ... Still, it's nice to have Ivan back.

An amazing new album by Men Without Hats. A mix between the original 80's sound with a modern production (by Dave "Rave" Ogilvie by the way). Can be put in shuffle with the old hits :)
