By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Sept. 2009
Format: Audio CD
That Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe are back
with a new collection is a reason to be cheerful.

Despite one or two exceptional tracks 2006's
'Crazy Itch Radio' felt a bit like the guys
were coasting. A little bit tired and worn down.

'Scars' confirms that they have found their muse
and some infectious energy again.
It is a lively collection full of fresh ideas
and big danceable beats.

The only track I find impossible to like is 'Saga',
which might have been a perfectly jolly experience
had they not entrusted the vocal to Santigold.
My allergy to every sound she emits rages on unabated.

Elsewhere the collaborations are all well realised.

Opening track 'Scars' is a heady cut-and-paste tapestry,
stiching electronic choral snatches and quasi-tribal
rhythms together with Kelis, Meleka and Chipmunk's
entertaining vocal intrusions. Delicious stuff !

I'm loving 'My Turn', featuring Lightspeed Champion
(aka Devonte Hynes), which had the whole Wolf family
and an assorted collection of random rodents dancing
wildly around the first of our Autumn bonfires.
(It's that time of year again in The Home Forest).

The splendid Sam Sparro's soulful contribution to
'Feelings Gone' is another upbeat dancefloor highlight.

The wonderfully itchy 'What's A Girl Gotta Do?' is
elevated to the realms of burlesque splendour by
Paloma Faith's perky and quirky performance.
There's more than one bat in the belfry in this
terrific composition.

What can I say, Basement Jaxx have one it again with another brilliant album that is their own unique sound. My favourite songs on there are Scars, Raindrops, Saga, She's no Good and Day of the Sunflowers but the whole album is listenable which I find for a lot of albums not all the songs can be. I look forward to their next album and hope it can match; though these guys are unstoppable.........

Fantastic Album, I can't stop listening to it. The BBC review says it all. Doesn't present the listener with as many 'dance anthems' as Basement Jaxx have provided us with before, the perhaps slightly 'darker' tone of the album lends itself to a bit more 'grown up' dance tracks. None the less a more than worthy addition to any music collection, highly recommended!

Unlike some of their UK peers (who I won't name), Basement Jaxx have never taken credit for things they didn't invent. It's a tribute to them that that in 2009 their sound is bang up-to-date - not that far off upcoming producers like Hudson Mowhawke. In fact it could be argued that the Jaxx style is an early incarnation of "wonky".

However, with the exception of their masterwork Rooty their albums can, for me, be seriously patchy affairs. The last LP, the overlooked Crazy Itch Radio, was something of a return to form and as such I had high hopes for "Scars". But, like Remedy and Kish Kash before it, it's hit and miss - treading that fine line between what is cutting-edge and what is just a plain old racket.

"Scars" does start and finish strongly though. The opener (the title track - a Kelis collaboration) and the single "Raindrops" hold their own against the best of Basement Jaxx's existing back catalogue whilst closing tracks "Distractionz" and "Gimme Somethin' True" echo the best songs from the last album.

It's the middle section of the record that's problematic. "She's No Good" is BJ formula swing. "Saga" retreads the ska/reggae flavours from their first album to no good effect.

A must for any Basement Jaxx fan. Almost every track on this album is great. Typical basement Jaxx quirky sounds.

after the so so last album, this one sees a return to form.
seem to be making music that they like rather than trying to please anyone else.
result: solid songs and meaty basslines.
