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.
