    This is a very cool & LONG awaited album from the first and only all girl band (not group-there is a difference) to score a #1 album. Fresh & fun, looks like some things never change.

    The only blemish is that it took so long -- 17 years? There seems too much contemplation on the years instead of spontaneous music. But, who am I to complain?

    I Love this CD! It is absolutely enjoyable from beginning to end. Each song brings a sparkle to my day and a smile to my face. "GOD BLESS THE GO-GO'S" isn't just the title of The Go-Go's new album, it is also a true fact!

    Louder, more confident, and more interesting than one might expect. It is a refreshing sound when compared to the monotony of most pap er pop music on the radio today. If guitar based, hook laden music is your thing, you will love this. God Bless indeed.

    You take 5 gorgeous musicians (seemingly ageless), you reunite them after each has honed their respective instrument skill for 17 years, you stir in razor sharp production along with hypnotic harmonies and melodies and what you get is God Bless The Go-Go's. Each one still very much a BEAUTY with one hell of a collective BEAT

    The album is fun, however the songs could use a bit more edge. Most of the songs do not sound like they were quite "finished" at the time of recording.

  1. The fab five has more than made up for lost time with the deliriously buoyant God Bless the Go-Go's.
  2. Veteran alt-rock producers Paul Q. Kolderie and Sean Slade give the record surprising bite and contemporaneity. [18 May 2001, p.80]
  3. Overall, God Bless the Go-Go's is a spirited, entertaining album that was worth the wait.
