4.0 out of 5 stars Like Mouse On Mars but funner 28 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has some fantastic moments of wonky funk, mostly at the beginning, and then gets rather formulaic and labours the point a bit. But it recovers at the end with Evoke An Object. It's sort of Mouse On Mars's Lovesexy, their previous experiments with dub, ska, krautrock, house, whatever's handy, rejected in favour of a playful but cohesive take on, for want of a better word, technofunk, with gorgeous soul-ish and disco-ish backing vocals and instrumental flourishes and enough detail to keep you grinning throughout. There first two tracks in particular have a hyper-Kylie sheen, Send Me Shivers is a bit regressive but lovely and Blood Comes has a fantastic build and release in the middle. The rest works the same template to less successful ends but isn't bad, by any means. Actually, Detected Beats is pretty bad, but one stinker out of nine tracks is good going. It's enough to make me want to listen to Instrumentals again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detractors be damned! 4 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
I am a long-time MOM fan since the very beginning, but gave up on them with Idiology. That album never grabbed me, and I thought they'd lost it. I only got this because Amazon had it cheap, and the reviews on Metacritic were strong. My god, what was I thinking! A band is allowed one bad album; I should not have abandoned them so soon. This album is AMAZING. It's not a return to form, it's a whole new direction, and the quality is right on par with the MOM of old. Detractors be damned, there's not a stinker on here, a solid listen straight through with a poppier sensibility than any MOM release to date. Anyone new to MOM should start with Autoditacker, then Glam, then Iaora Tahiti, and then this one. Catch them live if you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars inventive electronica 17 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album having never heard of mouse on mars before, and i'm rather pleased that i did now. Mouse on mars have a really distinct sound on this album.. I don't know what their other albums are like, but I really like the electronic, robotic, almost mechanical funky electronica they have made on this album. Stimulation for the ears

1.0 out of 5 stars Dance music for the heavily sedated 11 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The tracks on this album are dull and repetitive with a lack of ideas. The incoherent lyrics make no more sense when read off the liner notes. If you're under the influence of major sedatives you may like this. Maybe the people that made it were.
It provides little evidence of life on Mars, and should have been left there, or somewhere similarly far away.

4.0 out of 5 stars it excites and scares me 16 Sep 2004
By bowery boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you loved mouse on mars for their dreamy, otherworld melodies then you may be disappointed with "radical connector". If you liked "idiology" then this continues in a less abrasive vein. It's lots and lots of shredded, drilled, pulsating beats but little-to-no melodies. This is mOm's first full length vocal disc and it reminds me quite a bit of super_collider combined with u-ziq's "bilious paths": fat fuzzy bass beats paired with distorted, shredded-to-bits, r'n'b inspired vocals by dodo nkisi (of idiology) and German electronic artist niobe. The shimmering, goosebump inducing melodies of past releases have completely been abandoned but it's not a bad thing. If you really liked idiology then you'll dig this. `spaceship' buzzes along blissfully during it's second half recalling the highlights of idiology. Dodo Nkisi is in top form on `detected beats' recalling some of the best moments of super_collider's "raw digits" and Prince at his prime. `send me shivers' is a standout. It's a commercial ready house gem reminiscent of past mOm jewels like `schnick schnack meltmade' but without the melodies, of course. Don't get me wrong though, some melodies are still here but in a very different, funked out form. `evoke an object' is the perfect close to the disc and maybe one of the best tracks. Possibly due to the vocals and lyrics of niobe whose disc "tse tse" is the most weirdest, avant-garde electronic/jazz/torch song/experimental disc I've ever heard (with the thanks of jan and andi who produced most of it). 'evoke an object' is eight minutes of the lovely, house ready vocals of niobe over reversed synthesizer and pulsating rhythmic beats. Hands down, the niobe tracks are the best. Either you're going to love this or hate this. This is the new sound and shape of mOm. It excites and scares me. Different, but still interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the touchstone? 14 July 2005
By Peter Sanderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Between "Schnich-schnack," "Evoke An Object" and "Send Me Shivers," MoM is definitely one of the most brilliant sources of listenable music out there today. This is intelligent electronica coupled with the warmth of vocals and the energy of a house immediacy. I don't want to say "beat" because this stuff is far too subtle and innovative to slip into the doldrums of ubiquitous beat manufacture. Look upon it as a touchstone of what the possibilities of sound can do for discriminate listeners. Abstract, yes, but WAY accessible enough as to get your foot tapping and more! Honestly, I cried with joy (what a sap!) when I heard "Send Me Shivers" 'cause of the way it combines luscious vocals with such trippin' deconstructed sound waves. What can I say, it's right up there with the very best of Stereolab.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Krauts are at it again 31 Aug 2004
By jlo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
ANOTHER INSTANT CLASSIC! For over 10 years these boys have brought us nothing but top quality experimental electronic music.. this new album is no exception..Although not as weird as their last few releases, it is just as stimulating for people who are interested in something a little off center...some of this reminds me of Matthew Herbert's stuff mixed with Prefuse 73...but either of those guys would be around without MOM....buy this album and be prepared to take a musical journey to the stars..

4.0 out of 5 stars one of 2004's best .... 22 Feb 2005
By Jesse T. Sarles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are some very excitable techno tracks on this disc, but it often steps outside the genre with its creativity and exceptional integration of vocals, be they human or computer generated. "Wipe That Sound" is perhaps the most immediately accessible song, although there doesn't appear to be one bad track present. The final track, "Evoke an Object" is also 8 minutes of electronic mastery. This is what I envision music of the future sounding like, and thankfully you can go out and buy it today.
3.0 out of 5 stars Ambient Music with Vocals 14 Sep 2013
By Jane Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I gave this CD a 3 star rating because the lyrics are difficult to understand. Ambient music should not cause you to have to work at anything, such as having to read the lyrics.
