    I heard this group perform live almost a year ago and was blown away by their looks and their technique.

    Have you seen them on some watch commercial during the holidays?

    I too have enjoyed this group's first album for some time now. They were originally on the classical charts, only to be booted over to pop. Whatever, I don't care, the music is fun, the women are great looking and they put on a good show. I recently picked up the DVD and with 5.1 audio, an anamorphic transfer and bonus materials that include a couple of their videos and interviews, it's a real treat.

    I have seen them on the watch commercial for awhile now and always wondered who they were. Now I know.

    From the performance footage on the commercial they seem to put on a entertaining show.

    I've heard of them and think their album is great. Thanks for filling me in on the DVD, I'll have to check that out asap.

    I posted a thread about 'Bond' a couple of months ago. At that time, I don't think anyone responded. I'm glad to see they are gaining a little recognition. I even heard them on the Best Buy loop playing in their stores.
    And yes, they are very easy on the eyes as well as the ears.
    A great concert.

    I just got their "Born" CD a few weeks ago - definitely recommended.

    A shame you guys don't live in the UK. If you tune in to the satellite channel Classic FM (shows music videos from classical/new age artists), then in my experience of watching it, there seems to be a Bond video at least once an hour (ditto Charlotte Church and Vanessa Mae).

    I have their first album. I got it after seeing them on Good Morning America or one of the other morning shows. That was 3 or 4 years ago, about. I think it's intresting and different but I haven't felt compelled to hear their newer recordings. I'd grab one if I spied them at the used shop, I suppose...

    A friend played them for me the other day. It sounds very european to me... synthetic and with a hideous faux-techno beat, could have been straight out of the Eurovision Song Contest (and the quality of music normally on display there is... well, let's say it's "different".

    I finally realized who Bond reminds me of: "Eldorado"-era Electric Light Orchestra!

    I haven't got any of their stuff but have seen/heard demos in shops. IIRC they "take the piss" and perform the Bond theme in concert.

    If you've got iTunes installed, they have an exclusive video for the Bond theme. It's called "Explosive".
