Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The debut album from Reading electro-punks Does It Offend You Yeah? slots neatly into the slipstream behind fellow rave/rock fusioneers The Klaxons and Justice, an energetic splicing of bratty vocals, ribcage-quaking synthesisers, choppy rhythms--and occasionally, a few ideas that are all their own. So, while the opening trio of tracks aim mostly to bludgeon in a Justice style--"We Are Rockstars" hitches tapped cowbell and pneumatic beats to keyboard riffs that buzz like angry wasps--a little further in, DIOYY? tone down the technological assault and stretch their songwriting muscles. "Let's Make Out" is snotty in a faintly dislikable way, like the caddish male answer to Reverend And the Makers' "He Said He Loved Me". A couple of tracks prove they've got hearts under all the bravado, though: "Being Bad Feels Pretty Good" and "Dawn of the Dead" are anthemic electro-pop in the vein of mid-period Human League, complete with very '80s live bass and curiously, in the case of the latter, steel drums. --Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album, leaves me needing more! 8 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I originally saw this band at Reading Festival and they blew my socks off. I got home, and immediatly brought the album.

To hear the tracks that I had gone crazy to live, Doomed Now, Lets Make Out, Rockstars to name a few are just as crisp, and are truely Rock and Dance crossed over in genius fasion

Where this album faulters, is the Jekyll and Hyde like faces of this Album. The one side is the Rocking tracks, the other are the more sombre (not slow) tracks, which sound kinda similar, Making you wonder, did they run out of ideas? I hope not, as they really are a cracking new british band.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be glad you got into it though! 15 July 2013

Amazing album from one of the most adventurous and imaginative groups around. Mixing ripping rock with erratic electro the songs are a collection of funny yet dark, driving yet fresh examples of what can be done if a little time and thought and skill are put in.

Cracking album

Brought this Album because I originally downloaded it illegally when i was younger and have felt dirty ever since. It was also one of my favourite albums. Well worth a listen

4.0 out of 5 stars Great nu rave with some boy band intrusions 27 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
First of all, can I just repeat the message - if you get a chance to see them live, go! They turn up on stage looking 19, with hoodies, keyboards, guitars etc and just bring so much energy. Blew me away.

Anyway, the album is a bit of a mix. You've got nu-rave electronic mash ups like Battle Royal, We Are Rockstars and Let's Make Out, which are just great. Air meets Chemical Brothers meets Prodigy. Guitars, decks, samples, effects all over the vocals. Inventive, fresh, just exciting new music. Beating the Klaxons out of sight. And then you've got boy band pop punk tunes like Dawn of the Dead and Being Bad. It's an odd mix. An identity crisis being played out on record. Most of it is really good but the odd couple of tunes just don't fit, and are a bit lame really, imho.

I just hope that they go the hardcore route and don't sell out.

Oh, and go see them live. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew what I was getting myself into! 24 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Awesome awesome album.
Having downloaded weird science and we are rockstars some time back, i decided that Leeds Fest was the time to finally see them. They were immense. Not what i was expecting either. I get the feeling most of the people in the tent didnt know what was going on, but most loved it.
I cant get enough of high energy music (sounds naff written here), i always want to hear something that sounds like the band has loved every minute of what they were doing and put everything into it. This has it, all of it, everything!
Let's make out is my stand-out track, but it's all excellent. I quite like hadouken because they are stupid and arent ashamed of making something to fill a hole (music-wise), but they arent a patch on these guys.
As many people have already said 'This is real Nu-rave' or at least what it should be!

this is a brilliant electronic rock band and the reason they called the band does it offend you is not because the think their music is offensive it is because they named it after a qoute on the office when ricky gervais said "does it offend you, my drinking ?" so before you start slagging them off, buy a penis , stick it on and go **** yourself :P

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the real Nu Rave! 21 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
After reading various reviews, I was a little bit worried, but I' so glad I got it anyway! This is pure electro rock gold! The perfect rock version between Daft Punk and Justice. They really define Nu Rave so much more than the Klaxons or Test - Icles managed. If you like electro, or most forward moving indie bands (Foals etc) then you'll love this!
