5.0 out of 5 stars Innerpartysystem Makes The World Go Round 20 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a different Innerpartysystem to the one you probably know already. After the loss of their guitarist, the band opted to change their musical style rather than replace a musician, which is a very bold decision to make.

As such, the songs are much more electronic in nature than their previous record. Driving beats and catchy synth hooks are coupled with some weird sampling tricks to create something familiar yet unique.

Tracks like "And Together" and "Money Makes The World Go Round" demonstrate this new style most effectively. You will also notice a lot of vocal modification being used, particularly in the latter. Not auto-tune as such, but it creates a powerful effect and adds depth to the songs. Look out for plenty of artificial voices too.

"Artificial" seems to be the theme of this EP/Mini-Album, with the band constantly discussing how we all seem to think and act the same, instead of doing our own thing. Lead single "American Trash" is similar to earlier song "Don't Stop" both musically and lyrically (and the music video for the former is one of the best I have seen in a while, I may add). "American Trash" is probably the closest you'll get to old IPS on this EP.

The second half of the EP contains an 8 minute epic, "Not Getting Any Better", which, despite the title's claim to the contrary, does make the EP better, as the song cycles through pulsing beats, crooning vocals and a driving bridge near the end. "Squid" winds things down with a cooler song that lacks the heavy beats of the previous tracks but packs just as much of a punch.

In conclusion, I'm loving the new direction IPS have taken with this EP, they are due an album later this year and I'm sure it will be brilliant. I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the first album, or anyone who likes electronic music with some actual meaning behind it.

its a really good ep, different to their older stuff - alot more refined and a little more commercial but they've done it really well. No complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars American Trash 25 Mar 2011
By Barry W. Enderwick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Giving this E.P. 5 stars based on three things. The music, lyrics and video for American Trash. Have listened to the rest, and like it, but AT is so damned on in every respect that I can't stop listening to that one song.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little different from their LP, however still enjoyable and gives off the innerpartysystem vibe. 29 Nov 2012

It's a shame these guys are on hiatus. This album is much more electronic than their previous LP, however, still is filled with creative sound, complex instrumentation and beautiful lyrics. Definitely worth your time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, Accessible, and Intelligent 20 May 2011
By Mislav Forrester - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Opener "And Together" starts with an inhuman voice saying "and together." The accent is unusual, and the syllables are delivered rather awkwardly. The human vocals don't begin until more than two minutes into the song, and they are preceded by some circular melodic figures courtesy of a synthesizer. The piece has virtually no lyrical content, but it flows very well and provides a perfect opening to the EP. Its minimalistic lyrics can be interpreted in almost any way, and therein lies its charm.

Innerpartysystem's strength lies in their delivery. The music is poppy, catchy, accessible, fun, rhythmically and melodically easy. If you don't listen to the lyrics, it sounds like generic dance pop music; however, the brilliance lies just beneath the glossy surface, in the lyrics. Songs address topics such as social alienation, materialism, apathy, and romance. It sounds like Daft Punk at times, Anberlin at other times (at least in the vocal delivery, which certainly are reminiscent of Stephen Christian's).

This is social criticism at its finest - sabotage from the inside. Some lyrics from Money Makes the World Go Round sum up how ironic the band can be: "Crack the bottle, so electric, pour it on me, so productive." American Trash is pure irony, providing an ideal dance tune disguising biting social commentary. Innerpartysystem succeeds where bands like Rage Against the Machine and downset. failed - they've managed to coat their bombshell in a layer of delicious ear-candy. Highly recommended.
