5.0 out of 5 stars A New Standard, 1 April 2011
This review is from: Further (Audio CD)
I'm not going to analyse every track, it wouldn't do them justice. This album sets a new standard for Electronic music, it's that simple. The rest will have to catch up. If I could give it 4.99 I would, and that's only because it is a tiny little bit over-produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just get better and better., 24 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Rolling Blackouts (Audio CD)
The Go! Team's third album is more of the same yet better structured and produced, the songs seem tighter yet without losing their loose, thrown-together sound and this is no bad thing. Opening with the crunching T.O.R.N.A.D.O you know you're in for a wild ride. There are the usual cutesy numbers such as The Secretary song and Ready To Go Steady, as well as the excellent instrumentals - Yosemite Theme being the stand out track here, it could have been written as the theme music for an epic Western. Then there are the rest of the songs, insanely catchy pop songs like Buy Nothing Day, Apollo Throwdown, Rolling blackouts, Back Like 8 Track. The band is currently on tour in the UK and we caught them last Sunday in Liverpool and what a live show they put on, the sound quality is better than the album! Sam and Jamie jump around like mentalists pumping out their killer riffs and basslines, Ian playing his harmonica like there was no tomorrow in Yosemite theme, Kai keeping it all together with her precise drumming, Kaori just seeming to enjoy herself getting to play all those different instruments, and Ninja, what can you say this whirling, dancing singing machine? Full of attitude yet making the crowd love her with her easy banter between songs. My wife hasn't really been a Go! Team fan, saying that the songs are cross between tracks from Sesame Street, The Banana Splits and the Brady Bunch, she's converted now though, that 70's TV sound is what makes the Go Team tick. See them live AND buy the album if only for one reason - we had a great view of the stage and it's obvious that Ian needs the cash to buy some new trainers!
