5.0 out of 5 stars Destroy it! 28 Sep 2005
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Isle of Skye is not the prior origin point of bright, inventive new electronica. But that is where label founder/artist Mylo got his start, crafting complex, warm and danceable electronica on his computer. Now he's being put up as the savior of dance music.

Why? Apparently he says he's "just having fun." Here's hoping he keeps on having fun, for the sake of music fans. His debut "Destroy Rock & Roll" is a surprisingly fresh and fun sound, with bubbling electropop, staccato breaks and unstoppable basslines.

The first trio of songs show the sunnier side of Mylo -- it starts off with a warm wash of summer electronica that seems appropriately called "Valley of the Dolls," some languid downtempo, and some fun dance music that would sound at home in a kids' video game.

Then things take a slightly harder line, with rapid electronic jabs, computer twiddles and sampling. Songs like "In my Arms" sound like thinking men's club tune, danceable but also very complex. Then there are songs like "Guilty of Love," a smooth, sweet, still catchy number. The title track is a break from the usual, with a tongue-in-cheek recitation of all the legendary people who have contributed to the "destroying of rock'n'roll."

And as the album winds down, Mylo gives his colorful album another twist. The final three have a stately, almost classical downtempo sound, with yearning vocals layered in. Listening to these, it's impossible not to wonder where Mylo will go next in his career.

Like any other kind of music, electronica is hard to do -- for every genius, there are a bunch of idiots who think a catchy beat is all it takes to make it memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this 26 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
I don't agree with the other review. This album has lots of merits especially for a debut. You only have to look at how popular this guy is live. Check out mylo.tv for the recently added one hour live set. I love the simplicity of this album and yet there are many layers to it. Actually it grows on you a lot and I think it deserves the 5 stars! Get it

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this too! 15 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
This has barely left my player since I bought it on release, this is well and truely the shot in the arm that dance needed. I saw them live at Reading and wasn't that impressed, mainly because the dance tent was packed and I had to listen to them from outside!

Buy this album, you won't regret it. The mixes/bonus tracks are really worth going for the green version too.
