I downloaded their album last week and can't stop listening to it. Great DJ is, well, great. I love Shut Up and Let Me Go as well.

I saw them on the 15th or 16th at the Lowlands festival. It was a fun concert. I liked what I heard. Catchy bubblegum pop by that duo. Their single That's Not My Name is great too.

I've heard Great DJ and, yeah, it is not the kind of pop song you hear every day. Very unique and I like it.

What the hell, I'll be the fourth post in a row to give it the !

I love this CD. Very solid all the way through, which is a pleasant surprise when it comes to the pop music I tend to like.

Their single reminds me of New Wave female vocals mixed with Franz Ferdinand music.

I like them, and I usually don't listen to Pop bands. Catchy songs but not very clever lyrics

Well, most lyrics these days aren't clever. At least nothing that's super catchy and/or is poppy and radio-friendly.

I love The Ting Tings! Shut up and let me go is one of my favourite songs right now and the whole album is great. I'm still sad I missed their gig in Helsinki earlier this year but I'm hoping they'd return to Finland soon...I've been told they are great live.

The first I heard of them was the Video Awards show last night. Not bad. I think I will look into their stuff.

That's Not My Name is probably the catchiest song I've heard all year, but I can't say I liked anything else they've done.
