"Soft Machine" by the Teddy Bears captures songs that epitomize a combination of pop and chillout. "Yours To Keep", "PunkRocker", "Ahead of My Time" and "Automatic Lover" are among some of the great tunes on this cd. I admit that I found out about this group through Pandora Radio and only wish that more songs were included. "Soft Machine" by the Teddy Bears is great for those who enjoy electronica music.

I picked up this album not expecting much, but it has quickly become one of my favourite albums of this year. Tracks 2 through 6 are catchy, upbeat and euphoric - music that makes you want to reach for the remote and turn the volume right up.

As if that wasnt enough, Iggy Pop on 'Punkrocker' really stands out. It won't be long before you scream 'Cos i'm a punk rocker, yes I am!' along to the music.

This is really a brilliant album - it's supposed to be in the 'Alternative' genre, but its got funk, electronica and awesome guitar riffs. Oh, and it is a long way from inferior work like the boring and tedious album contributions of The Fratellis, White Stripes, We are Scientists, Editors or The Automatic.

If you're considering getting this then just do it! There is such a variety on here from the collaborations, it works really well. I have it on in my room all the time when I'm getting ready or tidying up

Captures a certain amount of Zeitgeist 3 Oct. 2006
By David E. Gregerson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Disclaimer: this is not my usual genre of music, inasmuch as I prefer rock and adult contemporary. After hearing the appetizer "Cobrastyle" as a current staple of the alternative radio realm, I was anxious to see the full menu. I also heard an interview of the three core band members from Stockholm about 3 weeks ago.

The album is an eclectic mix of techno pop, shining brightest when showcasing the irresistible thumping dance rhythms. The overall experience brought back a certain frenetic dance energy I haven't felt in over 10 years. Overall, I am very glad I bought it. I expect it will be a hit at any party. Turn the volume up and let loose!

The highlights for me are "Cobrastyle", "Different Sound", and "Little Stereo."

Global and Generational Appeal 3 Mar. 2007
By Mark A. Smiddy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Normally I avoid Punk,Techno-Dance, types of music like the plague. But after purchasing and listening to TeddyBears "Soft Machine," I'm sold and this is coming from a 43 year old American male. Good music like all art spans the Globe, Cultures, and Generations.

Techno Goodness! 13 Dec. 2009
By Marcus C. Neeley - Published on
Verified Purchase
Like others who have reviewed this album, I am NOT a big fan of punk rock.. but after hearing the track "Punkrocker" on XM, I knew I had to have this album. As it turns out the entire album is awesome! It is techno punk, yes.. and repetitive at times.. but catchy as heck. lol. I find myself skipping around to different tracks trying to decide which is my favorite. It's still Punkrocker. lol

Maybe not the best music of the century.... 1 Jun. 2007
By M. Emrich - Published on
Format: Audio CD
But honestly I cannot think of a more FUN album since, I don't know, the first English Beat album. I vacillated between giving this 4 or 5 stars, because I cannot say it is great music it is just so damned fun. It opens with the appropriately titled "Different Sound" which sets the sort of retro theme for the disc. "You move to a different sound" are the lines you'll hear as you catch your body swaying and you won't stop moving through the majority of this disc. "Cobrastyle" follows and it is one of the two strongest cuts with its incomprhensible dancehall lyric featuring some guy named mad cobra, it should be the number one track in every dance club in the world. Then comes Neenah Cherry guesting on the poppy "Yours to Keep". "Throw Your Hands Up" is another cut that should be played nightly in every club with a Jamaican by the name of Elephant leading this dance anthem. Next comes the discs first forgettable cut "Black Belt" which is no longer on my Ipod. "Punkrocker" is apparently in a car commercial, but it is the best David Bowie song that David Bowie had nothing to do with ever written. Along with Cobrastyle, it is one of 2 surefire hits. I will say this though, it sure makes sense that Punkrocker is in a car commercial because it begs to be played full blast in your convertible's stereo as you drive down the Pacific Coast Highway on a perfect spring afternoon. Heck it begs to be blaring as you pull into the West Des Moines Dairy Queen in your Geo, if that is your more likely place in the world. Then the disc gets a lot more techno and I see most the rest of the cuts being used in a Michael Mann film. "Riot Going On" is so Gary Numan. "Little Stereo" is a weird sort of singalong that I would have to label new wave dancehall, whatever the heck that is. Great Stuff throughout and a superb use of the guest celebs. Buy this disc so these guys will do another guest celeb collection. They have been around since at least 1993. Why is this the first I've heard of them?

An enjoyable time-capsule of a dance album 20 Feb. 2007
By A. Rose - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like many Americans, my first exposure to the this Teddybears album was through the Iggy Pop-voiced single "Punkrocker". I've always had a fondness for European techno (unlike Americans, the folk on the other side of the pond seem to understand the idea of using variation to keep their mixes interesting), and the synthesized background tracks were catchy, so I went to check out the whole album. The results were a little different than I expected - while "Punkrocker" is definitely in the same vein as the rest of the songs, it's definitely not representative of the album as a whole. There is a wide range of themes and attitudes here, as evidenced by the myriad guest vocalists. What ties it all together, however, is the persistent dance sound that will have you moving to the music almost subconsciously.

Whether or not you'll be into the album as a whole depends mostly on whether you're open to revisiting the 80s early-techno genre. For those who appreciate the style, there's much to like - old-school primitive synthesizer tracks are overlaid with some excellent vocal turns (other standouts include Elephant Man's "Are You Feelin' It" and Neneh Cherry's "Yours to Keep"). The experimental time-capsule nature of the album verges on self-awareness at times, with results ranging from biting (the lyrics of "Punkrocker") to amusing (the vocal appearance of the Fred voice of the Macintosh Classic in "Automatic Lover"). And while the lyrics are hardly multilayered, the tracks themselves are more than enjoyable enough to justify repeat listening.

"Soft Machine" may be a bit simplistic in scope and execution, but this is a nonetheless enjoyable album that makes a nice alternative to much of the other bubblegum-pop ear candy on the radio today.
