Excellent, but a mix of styles that don't completely gel

Be warned, if you buy this on the assumption that Telepopmusik are another French dance act...they are not. That isn't to say you won't enjoy this though. The best songs on this CD are undoubtedly the ones that feature the Bille Halliday-esque vocals of Angela McCluskey (Breathe, Smile, Yesterday was a lie) but undoubtedly the best song is 'love can damage your health' which is a more than sufficient replacement for the lack of Portishead material of late.
However, the pace picks up with humerous hip-hop tinged 'animal man' and 'da hoola'. Where the cd is let down is ' let's go again' which features probably the most annoying vocals you'll ever here!
I personally like this cd because it does offer a journey through different genres, but the reason i didn't award 5 stars is because i don't think they particularly sit well together, it sounds like a greatest hits compilation that records the progression of a group's styles through the years.
If you want a relaxing but dancable record i suggest you buy this cd and make your own minds up.
