Gang Of Four - What Happens Next album download
Much of What Happens Next sounds like a careful effort to balance the thick but limber "neo-Marxist funk" of the band's first era with a more streamlined and contemporary electronic attack, and the result sounds a good bit less like Gang of Four than a 21st century solo set from Andy Gill, especially given the presence of several guest vocalists.
With What Happens Next, post-punk legends Gang of Four have entered the reality-TV vocal-competition phase of their career.

Upon first listen to What Happens Next, what struck me most was the lack of specificity regarding its politics. But after going back and revisiting Gang of Four’s discography, I realized they have never been all that specific in their criticisms of consumerism, warfare, and conformity in general. Rather than offer solutions or form any sort of fine-tuned narrative, their lyrics have always been more rooted in the anxiety that stems from the great human rat race, not actually breaking down the race itself. The album does hit a danceable stride early on with three of its songs, two of which are driven by The Kills’ Alison Mosshart.
When I first heard there was a new Gang Of Four LP coming out, I, like most I expect, was totally confounded. The political post-punk pioneers originally disbanded in 1983, then again in 1997, before reforming in 2004 and slowly haemorrhaging members. Much has been made in the press about the fact that the only remaining original member on board for 'What Happens Next', the 'gang's' eighth album of original material and first since 2011, is Andy Gill; the band's pioneering guitarist.
As the sole original member involved in the release of the band's new album What Happens Next, the group leader's surveys from INXS to The Fall to examine the concept authenticity. Most weekdays as I stroll through the market next to my studio in London I’m confronted with questions about authenticity
