5.0 out of 5 stars Electro-brilliance 31 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
After reading the one star review posted about this album, I was releuctant to invest in it. As I grew to love the robots' other two albums I decided to ignore the negative review and I have not regretted the decision.

The first album of the robots in disguise (Sue Denim and Dee Plume), which benefits greatly from the production skills of Chris Corner (The musical genius behind the Sneaker Pimps and IAMX).

The album consists of catchy, memorable songs, which you'll find yourself constantlyre-listening to. The 'bots use a wide variety of stlyes to create an interesting and absorbing collection of tracks.

Short summaries of stand-out tracks;

Argument, menemonic, cycle song; (almost worringly) catchy, the dialogue backed by upbeat synths and criminally catchy basslines.

50 minutes; Sounds *almost* like a splinter-era Sneaker pimps track - drum beats, synths, occasional beeps, soft sensitive vocals, simple yet effective lyrics, catchy chorus, haunting melodies - will stay with you long after you stop listening to the track...
DIY; sensitive, less agressive than the rest of the album, backed by softly chiming synths, witty lyrics.

Boys; "Let us celebrate the foreign glamour of boys", song about the 'bots relationship with boys. Catchy lyrics, memorable bassline.

Bed scenes; Fun electro-punk, shoutier than some of the other tracks, but also with melodic harmonies.

Hi-Fi, Transformer; Hi-fi is slightly more acoustic than the other tracks on the album, strong beats push the tracks forward...

I felt that I had to write a review in order to prevent people being put off buying this amazing album.

TO SUMMARISE IN ONE SENTENCE; CATCHY ELECTRO, WELL WORTH INVESTING IN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transform-us.... 16 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic debut album from the two Robottes disguised as earthling girls. The clever mix of Low-fi electronica and girl-fuelled power-punk is the perfect thing for those who want to both chill out, or show out!

With the help of Sneaker Pimps/IAMX's Chris Corner, the girls stir up memories of 80's girls such as Cyndi Lauper and Strawberry Switchblade but with a modernist twist, flitting between ballsy shout-fests on songs like 'Bed Scenes', and pretty soft harmonies and atmospheres on 'Postcards from...'

The CD has a general childlike nostalgia about it which is reflected beautifully in this early work, and almost pumps your ears full of hormones as you listen! It is innocent yet mischevious at the same time, and overall fantastically produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars the only Robots in Disguise worth listening to 21 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
melancholic and ironic "electro clash" record that mixes beats, keyboards and acoustic guitars with girl harmonies, the highlights being The Argument (about two girls insulting each other constantly), Boys (being in love with boys just for their bodies), DIY (play on words with love, DiY art and breaking (he)arts)) . they did a mini LP before that was understated and beautiful but never did better than 1 or 2 song by LP. Disguises is their masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never get bored of this album 19 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this is the best RID album. It's their gentle electro one, full of pretty melodies, soft voices and nice harmonies. It's twinkly electro! 'Boys' is one of my favourite ever songs - even after all these years I still never skip it when it comes on. 'DIY' is charming, almost glittery. '50 minute's is a sexy tune, and 'Arguments' is at it's best in a car at insane volume. I really recommend this album to any electro lovers. It's a great debut and I never understood why the Robots didn't get right up in the charts with it!

1.0 out of 5 stars total shock of crit 24 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
this has to be the worst thing I have ever subjected my ears to. I can only assume that the previous reviewer is one of the so called robottes as why anyone would want to subject another "earthling" to this tosh is beyond me. What a shame that they have dragged chris corner's name into peddling this rubbish as his work is brilliant and it was this name dropping that brought me to the attention of this diabolical pap. Avoid at all costs this self absorbed, aural naval gazing amateur night at the karaoke that has been recorded on this disc and go and give your money to some crooning tramp found outside your local at closing time - much easier on the ear and by far beeter value for your hard earned.
