7 of 19 people found the following review helpful By russell clarke TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 July 2005
Format: Audio CD
If ever an album fell between the proverbial two stools its We Are Monster by Isolee. It's neither a pounding hedonistic pulse accelerator like say Vitalics "We Are Cowboy" or a gorgeous warm bath in lush sound like say "76.14" by Global Communication. The question must be therefore exactly what does this album have to offer?
Well on first listen, not a lot. Persevere however and some interesting nuances and idiosyncratic structures reveal themselves. "Enrico", s stuttering vocal effects are wrapped around a deep bottomed synth that seems to breakdown differently each time or maybe I just imagined that. "Schrapnell" is the most immediately melodic track on the album but it's hardly flippant stuff, every note is carefully composed and precisely dropped into the mix. No note is incidental. The sleeker more traditional "My Hi-Matic" glistens with sleekly driven purpose while "Face B" resonates with almost alien tones and textures before gliding into a crackling mood piece. "Today" uses spiralling notes of plangent guitar to counterpoint the more terrestrial bound caustic burrs of electronic noise.
Too many of the songs/tracks - you could argue that some are both and some are neither- never become more than a half realised notion in the back of the artists mind .The ten minute long "Pillowtalk" is so dull, repetitive and well boring it makes me nod off after a minute with it's aimless synth doodles and pitter patter rhythms. "Madchen Mit Hase" is as impenetrable as its title. The unquestionably intriguing stabs of random noise seem to work at odds with one another producing an eclectic mess. "Do Re Mi" takes a similar approach but seems to reconcile the arbitrary elements far more satisfactorily.

Where did this come from? 15 Dec. 2006
By Billy Pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have to admit, my interest in all things techno has waned a bit in the last few years. I rarely go to clubs anymore, and I pretty much never buy records...it just seemed like it was all the same ideas, the same sounds, the same basslines, repeated ad infinitum. So I was more than pleasantly surprised when I heard We Are Monster.

The ten tracks on this release are more like actual songs, each one individual and unique, yet adding up to a coherent and consistent whole. And even though Isolee gained a reputation for producing what is termed "microhouse"- tracks that move along at midtempo, change subtlely and are all small gestures- that is only a starting point here. He throws in elements of dub, grime, electro, techno, even an acoustic guitar, yet it never feels like a stretch, it all comes together effortlessly. No easy task, yet one Isolee pulls off incredibly well.

Constantly surprising and always enjoyable, We Are Monster reminds me why I got into this music in the first place, and why, all these years later, I keep coming back.

A Good Surprise, and Surprisingly Good 2 Feb. 2008
By FlangeMechanism - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As with the previous reviewer, this album came as a pleasant surprise for me. Like most people who have heard of Isolee, my only previous exposure to him was "Beau Mot Plage," that catchy wordless-vocal track that showed up on pretty much every deep house compilation in the early '00s. And rightly so, as it's a really good track.

We Are Monster is not deep house. It's not trip-hop, downtempo, or acid jazz. I would call it a cross between acid, drum 'n' bass, and IDM, with an indie spin. And in case you think (as I do) that "IDM" and "indie" are code words for "crap," know that this album is a very great exception.

Comparisons to Aphex Twin are probably inevitable; but I have very nearly all of Aphex's CD output, and off the top of my head I can't think of anything of his that I enjoy as much as I do this.

There are elements of house, blues, rock, jungle, hip-hop, electro, and disco, but no track ever quite fulfills any of those genres; the only consistent elements are how dark, stripped-down, and incredibly catchy it all is. You can sit and focus on this music, you can use it as a background while you're reading, you can use it to get yourself pumped up at the gym. It's nothing if not versatile.

Highly recommended, particularly for Aphex, Amon Tobin, and Luke Vibert fans.
