5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece! 22 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm sorry, but I just could not relate to the article underneath. This album is wonderful! Having listened to a lot of western and Japanese music alike I recently became bored and found a lot of things rather repetitive until I stumbled across this band after watching Appleseed (they do the soundtracks for Vexille too) and I have never looked back.
The band is Japanese but sings in english, with fresh sounds and lyrics to accompany in. Songs you can completly relate to, from the calm medlodies of Let It All Come Down to the upbeat and defiant Ride On, there are songs for all personalities. the song combines guitars (acoustic and electric) to the pounding sounds of drum n bass mixed with elctronic sounds, all with a male singer whose pitch knows no bounds.
A rare gem and an excellent work of art, I'm so glad to discover it on Amazon, I highly recommend this!

1.0 out of 5 stars a bitter disappointment 4 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
I had bought the boom booms previous album "out loud" and really liked a couple of the tracks, in particular "push eject" and "on the painted desert". The former was a quite forward looking (its ten years old now)drum n' bass / metal-ish crossover with hard guitars against funky beats.
The latter song took the kind of sound the Chemical Brothers had on "psychadelic reel"(?) and ramped it up till it was even more stunning and dreamy than that song - simply amazing.
Anyway the point is this album is just rubbish in comparison with only one track that is any good, and even then it is a very traditional gospel sound with little of the innovation they showed on the tracks I mentioned before (bar the obvious one of a japanese drum and bass outfit doing gospel in the first place).
There are more vocals than before which is troubling because the group is japanese and dont have the best grasp of english - which is what they unfortunately sing in. The songs are more lumpy affairs with less
futur-y drum beats and more heard-it-before kind of guitars, on the strength of this album they are well on their way to being an indie band!!
It reminds me of UNKLE and the album "war stories" but without everything that made that album such an usual pleasure for me, here the Boom Booms are a bit turgid and it has put me off looking for any new albums from them if this is the sound they are pursuing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of New Directions and Experiments 14 April 2005
By Kyte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
2003's Photon album left off with Boom Boom Satellites continuing along their amalgamation of trance, break-beat, acid jazz, rock, and everything else under the sun. Almost two years later and the dynamic duo of Michiyuki Kawashima and Masayuki Nakano return with a new spin to their eclectic brand of music.

Full of Elevating Pleasures is, in my opinion, quite a departure from their earlier material. I remember hearing that the guys were going to go for a more "punk"-like sound on this record, but I wouldn't classify it as punk, at least not by American standards. However, this album is definitely more rock oriented than anything else in their catalogue.

Leading off the record is "Rise And Fall", a slow build on a moving song. The added vocals of back-up singers on this song (and a few others) give it almost a Southern-soulfullness to the techno-enhanced guitar and drum work. "Moment I Count" is probably my current favorite song just because of the strange vocal stylings and effects on said vocals. "Propeller" goes back to a hip-hop influence that hasn't been heard much since Umbra's "This Reality is A Fantasy, But This Fantasy is Killing Me" featuring Chuck D. I'm not much of a fan of either of those songs, but it's an interesting departure from the rest of the music on the album and the song clocks in at under two minutes so I'm not going to complain any about it. "Dive For You" was featured in the new Appleseed movie and was the first bit of new music from BBS that I had the pleasure of hearing, and now hearing the full song it's even better than the taste I had of it some time ago.

I'd highly recommend the new effort from Boom Boom Satellites if you're already a fan of their talent. If you're into more of the electronical side of their music, it does seem to take a bit of a backseat this time around, but it's still there. If these guys couldn't pull of the rock I wouldn't be giving it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS CD IS FULL OF ELEVATING MUSIC PLEASURE 12 July 2006
By Kira - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'M A BIG BOOM BOOM SATELLITES FAN AND THIS CD IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY. THE SONGS ANTHEM AND DIVE FOR YOU APPEARED ON THE APPLESEED SOUNDTRACK AND THEY REAPPEAR HERE. BBS HAS MASTERFULLY COMBINED VARIOUS SOUNDS AND RELEASED YET ANOTHER GREAT ALBUM.

WHEN YOU HEAR THE OPENING TO RIDE ON, YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT A GREAT SONG. THE JAPANESE DUO IS ABLE TO CREATE GREAT SONGS AS IF ITS LIKE BEATING SSX TRICKY, YET THE SONGS AREN'T SHORT. A WORTHY BUY THIS CD IS.
5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to this and your ears will thank you. 8 Sep 2009

I often say that you need at least three people to be a good band. These TWO guys make that theory shaky. They mix the rhythm of electronic with a little pure rock bass. While the album features two tracks from the film Appleseed ("Dive for You" and "Anthem(Reprise)") the real audio pleasure comes from songs like the energetic "Moment I Count" and somber almost reflective "Let It All Come Down". This was a must have for quite a while before I picked it up and I think you'll enjoy it too.
4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this album 6 Aug 2007
By E. Bowman - Published on Amazon.com

I got turned on to Boom Boom Satellites about 2 years ago and have been a fan since. This was probably my favorite album that i've heard from the group. I really enjoy their sound because it's so different. My personal favorites on the cd are "Dive For You" (from the Appleseed movie),"Let It All Come Down" and "Stride". Great album!!
