Action Action

An Army Of Shapes Between Wars

Victory 2852

Released on January 24, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

ACTION ACTION exploded out of the New York scene in 2004 to change opinions on what pop and New Wave music was forever. With the release of their Victory Records debut album Don’t Cut Your Fabric To This Year’s Fashion in the Fall of 2004, ACTION ACTION quickly became leaders in the nouveau - wave movement sweeping across the country. Tours with THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, PLAIN WHITE T’S and MIDTOWN coupled with sales of 50,000 plus albums kick started the gospel of dark, 80’s influenced pop. Now, ACTION ACTION is back with their newest and latest offering of thick guitars layered with levels of synth and keyboards, and fans couldn’t be more ready to get dancing again. Legendary producer William Wittman (CYNDI LAUPER) returns to man the soundboard on An Army Of Shapes Between Wars and the result is no less than a new wave masterpiece that would make Ric Ocasek and Robert Smith green with envy.

I bought this cd because I saw the video for 'the game'. That song is great but the whole album is amazing! I don't normally like music like this and I can't tell you why I love it so much, I just do! I understand it may not be to everyone's taste but a cd hasn't made me want to jump around like this for a long time!

I have listened to this CD probably 3 or 4 times since I bought it. I was really disappointed. If you like Action Action, buy the old CD. But, if I were you, I'd skip this one altogether unless you're a diehard.

This c.d. is amazing. it's like a modern day depeche mode. "paper cliche" is my favorite track. i just love the bitterness of some of the songs. great album. great band.

This release is ridiculous! It is leaps and bounds above the last album and cann't REALLY be compared to anything out there today. Songs like "What temp does air freeze at" hints at a beatles-esque experimental sound while "120 ways to kill yourself" shows vocal skills lacking in all other synth-type bands out there. This disc is a must have wheteher you liked "cut your fabric" or has the mark of truely great need to listen to it more than once to "get it" but it's still catchy as Hell 1X through

Meh, this album is pretty good, Its a lot better than their first one thats for sure. The first half of this cd is Really good, i just hate how, and I think they did this in their last cd too, most of the last half of the cds songs are mainly the electronic stuff and him singing, I like when the drums and everything are in effect giving it a more upbeat tone. But I dunno, If you were into Action Actions last cd you should be pretty into this.
