BBC Review

Looking at the evidence of Robots In Disguise makes you feel a little like a musical Loyd Grossman preparing to ask the question 'what sort of person is a fan of a band like this?'

Think about it - the attachment to the Shoreditch set, the appearances in The Mighty Boosh, the oh-so-clever fake names of Dee Plume and Sue Denim; surely every right thinking music fan should hate them?

Yet, in We're In The Music Biz, the Robots have produced an album that not only makes them pretty adorable, it also shows that they are more than capable of introducing a fine slice of electro into the bargain.

Maybe some of that is down to their producer, ex-Sneaker Pimp Chris Corner, but credit where it's due, Sue and Dee are more than worthy of their place in, well, the music biz.

Combining tongue-in-cheek lyrics - see the autobiographical title track's 'stalked the journos round Reading/we got tagged in your mag as Britain's worst band' or the brilliantly honest single, The Sex Has Made Me Stupid - with sturdy basslines and simple melodies, the pair have hit on a formula so ferociously simple and utterly addictive, it makes you wonder how you could have ever considered not loving them.

Most stunningly, they've even got two songs, The Tears and I Don't Have A God, that a certifiable 'proper dead serious' band would saw off their arms for, coming as they do with just the right level of epic chorus, angry verve, resigning pathos and driven beat to make them more captivating than even the cover art (look carefully, you'll suddenly get a shock).

So what sort of person does like a band like Robots In Disguise? Well, pretty much anyone who enjoys pop, doesn't take life too seriously and is prepared to approach new sounds with an open mind - in short, any right thinking music fan. --Chris Long

This is a review for two albums: Get RID! (2006) and We're in the Music Biz (2007).

This review comes from an internet game. You buy an album you've never heard of from a shop. Then you write your impression of it before and after listening to it for the first time.

---BEFORE LISTENING TO IT---

WHY DID YOU SELECT THIS ONE? I know `Turn It Up' (the first track on Get RID!) as I bought it as a MP3 download from eMusic circa five years ago for 20p. I really like the song and it has a good number of plays on my iPod as it ends up on many different playlists. It has the same sort of plastic heart that Mini Viva's `Left My Heart in Tokyo' has.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE COVER?

Not too inspiring. The Get RID! cover is a photograph of their backs, with `Robot' written over their black jean covered arses. It does not suggest sophistication. As it's obviously a pop album I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

We're in the Music Biz has photo of the two girls screaming at the camera. On closer inspection their white blouses are not what they seem. They are topless (I assume the trousers are real) with blouses and ties painted onto their skin. It's maybe a bit better than the other cover, but it's still pretty poor. The painted skin reminds me of the rather weak cover art Those Dancing Days used on their album Daydreams and Nightmares.

WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC ARE YOU REALISTICALLY EXPECTING? Straightforward pop without pretentions to be much more than that. I expect synths to completely dominate with maybe only a few bits of guitar. Mostly up-tempo as I imagine their slower numbers might feel a bit contrived, as though they are ten year olds pretending to be older by slowing it down.

The Robots 3rd outing leans towards rock as there is much more electric guitars and shouting going on. As much as I like electro, I also love a bit of angry rock, so this album pleased me greatly! 'Animals is far and away my favorite track on here - it's sexy and has a nice rhythm to it. 'The Tears' really got into my head, and 'I live in Berlin' is noisy in the best way. I really like 'I'm Hit' because it's a bit messy. In a world full of over produced, autotuned pop music, I'm glad of bands like RID who have a 'recorded in the basement' sound about them!

probably my favourite album, if you like RID you'll like this, it's typical of their style as well as being more upbeat than the previous album :)
