Some might call it “maturing”, but rumour has it, Gossip have ditched their rough, fiesty sound and employed a much slicker sound. Sadly, it’s all true. While Beth Ditto and co. will always find a way to make a melody that sticks with the listener, now, there is no edge.

It’s all rather nice and comfortable, which is exactly what Gossip shouldn’t be. A glance at the moody accompanying video for “Perfect World”, confirms that the once in-your-face and controversial band have begun to take themselves a little too seriously or started pretending to be something they’re not.

Can we have the old Gossip back please?
