Product Description

CD Description

When it came to following up their acclaimed debut, 2006’s The Looks, MSTRKRFT looked to their experience behind the decks, spinning everywhere from packed, sweaty clubs to major festivals, resulting in a certain sonic (r)evolution on Fist Of God. Not only are the beats fatter than ever this time around, they also represent Al-P and Jesse’s mutation of today’s best urban music into MSTRKRFT’s distinctively brutal club grooves. Throughout Fist Of God, slamming cameos from the likes of John Legend, N.O.R.E., Ghostface Killah, E-40, Freeway, and Isis of Thunderheist all get MSTRKRFTED. , with he standout perfomance on the record being John Legend’s astonishing vocals on “Heartbreaker”—Fist’s unclassifiable, synth-pop-meets-Journey ballad co-written with Space Cowboy (Lady GaGa).

4.0 out of 5 stars Electronics that rock 25 Aug 2009
By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Fans of Justice or Evil Nine should check this out right now.

MSTRKRFT are what a rock band would sound like if they replaced every one of their guitars, basses and drumkits with synthesizers, but still managed to maintain that sheer raw rock energy. They can really make their synths scream, and you'll want to turn this up loud. These tracks are very club-minded, though most of them are provided in shorter less DJ-friendly versions than you might like.

The vocals and melodies are kept pretty straight, no major surprises. The vocals never overpower the tracks- sometimes the raps are let loose to roll for several lines, sometimes it's a looped sample, it keeps it interesting. John Legend's appearance on "Heartbreaker" is a highlight- and obviously the album's main attempt to get radio attention, as not much else on the album sounds like "Heartbreaker" really.

"Breakaway" is a nice inclusion, harking unashamedly right back to the 1980s.

It might've been nice to have a couple more sung vocals tracks in place of a couple of the rap ones, and a couple of different synth sounds thrown in to give the second half of the album some different flavours, but besides that this album does rock and is well worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music with a punch!! 21 July 2009
By Nse Ette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Electronic duo MSTRKRFT's sophomore CD "Fist of God" features guests like Ghostface Killah, Lil Mo, N.O.R.E, and John Legend, the latter whose presence drew my attention to the disc.

They fall into the same musical bracket at Prodigy, Justice and Daft Punk, and the album features club anthems with static-sounding fuzzy and buzzing riffs. Opening cut "It aint love" featuring Lil Mo is one of such. "1000 cigarettes" is a head-pummeling Prodigy-style electro instrumental, which appears again later in the disc featuring rapping by Freeway.

The fuzzy "Bounce" does as its title says and features N.O.R.E. and Isis. "So deep" is a hypnotic Techno-ish gem featuring the soulful vocals of Jahmal, who appears again on "Breakaway" which sounds like some Chicago House music classic. The fuzzy Rock-tinged "Click click" features rapping by E40, while the atonal "Word up" features an expletive spitting Ghostface Killah.

There are instrumentals like "Vuvuvu", and the swirling "Fist of God", but my favourite is the more sublime piano-sprinkled "Heartbreaker" with a (fitting) languid performance by John Legend. It is different from everything else on the album, more like what one would find on a Röyksopp or even David Guetta album.

Guaranteed to keep you up all night dancing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Timing 29 Mar 2009
By Bo E - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying I am an avid music listener, DJ, and musician/producer. This is a very good album and flows well. The production on this album is really flawless and drives a consistent chrome-like sheen through the whole record. It features some interesting collaborations in a dance record that makes for some good fun and some words to hum on your way to work... or to the dance floor. Stand out tracks are Click Click, Word Up, and Break Away, but honestly there are no bad songs here. Everything is worth listening to and there are no fillers. If you liked The Looks this album has large parallels but takes everything to the next level. But also, just a great album in general. If you like being boring and only listening to music that suits your current social identity, then skip this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Letdown of the Year 24 Jun 2009
By T Boz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Man this album is a bitter pill. When MSTRKRFT's first album came out, Justice had not yet taken their throne as the kings of electrohouse, and this band looked to ride the crest of a new wave in electronic music, then they waited forever to release a new album, and the scene passed them by. Ed Banger records came to fruition and quickly stole the thunder these two had started, making Paris the new hot spot for hard electronic music. I saw MSTRKRFT on their Fist of God tour recently, and they played a banging set of electro, house and even rock against a backdrop of flickering television sets that was truly mesmerizing. However, the album of the same name wreaks of 2006, with tired synth sounds, lame guest vocals, and not enough hooks to ground a memorable dance album. I hope the next time around these guys come with something more original to set themselves apart from the hundreds of clones now claiming the same sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars great album 6 Jan 2013
By Stu - Published on Amazon.com
MSTRKRFT tears it up. This hard hitting album is a great blend between techno, dubsteb and rock. You'll dig it

5.0 out of 5 stars MSTRKRFT is just getting warmed up. 14 Aug 2009
By TestKN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a straight up awesome album. Like MSTRKRFT says, they don't know what kind of dance music they make anymore, they just make what they like and it shows. The album is packed with energy but it's the nuance that make this album great. FoG sounded good the first time I heard it and rapidly became a favorite with subsequent listens.

The Amazon track previews mostly speak for themselves but I do want to point out that Vuvuvu in particular isn't done justice with a 30s preview... This track is a Jam that really develops.

Check out this album, but more importantly check them out live; they really put on great shows.
