    This album is a wellspring of the bandmates' combined creativity and an ode to free-spirited artistic expression. Bravo.

    In a place where post-Warhol art-as-disposability has turned into all Snooki/Britney/Lindsey/Khardashians all the time, Blondie strikes a blow for pop culture that's not stupid, wasted and empty.

    Panic of Girls rushes forth on a sleek new wave disco pulse that's entirely unconcerned about whether '80s retro is in style this season or not. This is fashionable music existing outside the realm of fashion.

    None of it will set the Saturday dancefloors on fire with pouting thrills, though it may sound cool enough over coffee in the cafes of Sunday morning.
  5. If only the other half of this album didn't spiral off into wretched reggae stylings, this would be alright.

    The weakness is the music. [Aug 2011, p.79]

    They reportedly had some difficulties securing a label for this release. And Unfortunately, it's easy to see why; Girls hits the panic button pretty early on. [Jul 2011, p.78]

    A fan's opinion: Panic of Girls is the best after Eat to the Beat. Many of the songs take us back to their career highlights. What I Heard has the powerful sound of Union City Blue while The End The End leads me to The Tide is High. It is amazing to see how Debbie's voice fits perfectly in the sound. I just hope Ghosts of Download to be released without label problems. Expand
