8/10 according to Brian (Norman Records) on Thu 07 May, 2009"Norwegian pop princess Annie". I don't need to review this single do I? She's like the Kylie it's cool to like innit? 'Anthonio' is about a failed holiday romance apparently and there's one of those "comeback" effigies from "Anthonio" titled Annie. I've always had a soft spot for quality Euro trance pop & this Richard X produced effort is a richly layered blend of clipped cutesie vocals and laser shagging candy floss synths with a perfectly adequate & unfussy mid tempo disco beat. It sounds a bit like Saint Etienne crossed with Ladytron, two huge cult concerns who probably know more about the essence of great pop than Simon Cowell could ever EVER dream of. This single is actually pretty fantastic, I even want to hurl myself around to the grinding, galloping Designer Drugs mix but I've got a ton to do so it better go on the backburner 'till I got my chinos and party shoes on and hit the tiles on Friday. Does anyone remember that Motiv-8 mix of Common People by Pulp? Now that is well banging x popBRIAN
10/10 according to Anders on
Great indie pop track with amazing remixes.I especially like Designer drugs and the Berlin Breakdown versions.Plus Annie is so cute! Indeed, she looks very good on this 12'. =)

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
