Age of Consent songs Product Information
Age of Consent album for sale by Bronski Beat was released Apr 18, 2000 on the London label. Bronski Beat's debut album sounds every bit as startling today as it did upon its release in 1984. Age of Consent CD music In a year where the British pop consciousness was dominated by the coy antics and over-the-top production of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, this trio was the anti-Frankie. Over simple, almost minimalistic synths, Glaswegian singer Jimmy Sommerville sings, in a truly scarifying falsetto, blunt, no-nonsense lyrics about the emotional life of gay men in the UK at the dawn of the AIDS era. Age of Consent CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

||EXCELLENT MARKER OF ITS TIME.|
This album probably paved the way for most of the gender-twist artists who came later. Jimmy does sultry soul siren better than any one.Antony and the Johnsons would certainly own up to the influence. NEED A MAN BLUES, SCREAMING, and NO MORE WAR, sound contemporary now, and this sonic upgrade is worth the money. SMALLTOWN BOY remains the definitive gay anthem.

I had this cassette on it's original release. I guess I never really paid much attention to the lyrics back then. Listening to it one can really hear the frustration and anger surrounding the persecution of a young, gay man growing up in 80's Britain. Very interesting.... on another "note", this cd rocks!!! The keyboard programming is classic.... too bad "Junk" wasn't on the "Supersize Me" soundtrack. It would've fit right in.
