Product Description


While Attack Decay Sustain Release is the debut album by Simian Mobile Disco, James Ford and James Shaw have been here before – before SMD, they were one half of shambling, psychedelic indie outfit Simian. On that band's demise, Ford and Shaw fostered something as a reputation as remixers and producers, tweaking knobs for The Klaxons and Arctic Monkeys. Here, though, they return to the artist's chair in their own right - and if you were one of those people complaining they couldn't hear the 'rave' in new rave, Attack Decay Sustain Release should make you very happy. Tracks like "Hustler" and "Tits & Acid" are unmistakably pitched for the dancefloor, layered constructions of wobbly bass, ecstatic analogue synthesiser washes, and rave blips, presented with a muscle reminiscent of their Parisian rave compatriots Justice. "It's The Beat", featuring Ninja from The Go Team, takes a 'keep it simple, stupid' approach to lyrical ingenuity: "You know it's the one for the treble/Two for the bass/It's the beat". And while in general, there's few signs of any remaining indie sensibilities, "Love" –- featuring guest vocals from Barry Dobbin of Clor – features the sort of choppy punk-funk bass that should keep the Rapture fans happy. An impressive reinvention. –-Louis Pattison

Product Description

SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO Attack Decay Sustain Release (2007 UK 2-CD album set - You may think this debut album from James Ford [Arctic Monkeys & The Klaxons producer] & Jas Shaw would be a thrashing indie affair but from the jaw-juddering reworkedversion of last years underground anthem Hustler to the pumped up hip house rave anthem reborn that is Its The Beat this album is one big gloriously debauched afterhours session in an electronics shop and includes a Bonus Disc featuring full length dub mixes of all 10 album tracks)

3.0 out of 5 stars Waaaaaaay Overpriced!!! :( 25 Jun 2007
By JBizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Me being a huge fan of "Hustler" by SMD was totally excited to see they were putting out a full album. Needless to say, I was a little let down. My main gripe is the length of the CD. The main album clocks in at only 36:57, with the longest track at just 4:59, & the majority are only around 3 1/2 minutes long. What makes it worse is this supposed bonus disc is again just under 40 minutes. This one only has 6 tracks with remix's & a couple full versions. Why weren't these both just put on one disc? My other issue is on the 1st CD there are only 10 tracks to begin with 3 of those 10 are complete throw away filler tracks the worst offender of these would be the last track "Scott". Ya know, if you're gonna make an album close to 80 minutes & you need to throw something in to fill some empty space, fine, but when your CD is only 20 minutes long to begin with, can we do with out the filler stuff? I don't know, I like alot of the music on the album, it's just probably not gonna get alot of repeat play out of me because it's so short:(. I don't wanna keep hitting play every 30 minutes, or have to stop & put something else in. SMD would've been better off releasing a extended CD single with the 6 great tracks on the CD. I hate to say if I had to do it again, I would skip this release & just DL the good tracks, this was not money well spent:(. If you can find it cheap check it out, otherwise I would suggest passing on this release.
