5.0 out of 5 stars Experiment with Chikinki - I did.
OK, so I'm no music journalist, but I can tell you one thing; no amount of describing Chikinki's sound will suffice, you just have to hear it for yourself. If you've seen them live you'll be pleased to know this album manages to capture some of that raw energy whilst retaining that unmistakable coolness. If you havn't seen them live, you really should, the live set will...

1.0 out of 5 stars its been done before... and much better
this isn't much of a criticism of the songs but much more an expression of my disappointment why the band's electric performance can't be heard on the album! this band isn't about songs but about feeling (it) and anyone who's seen Chikinki live wants ass grabbing, ball kicking, screaming rocktronica wich somehow got lost on the way between stage and studio... the band...

OK, so I'm no music journalist, but I can tell you one thing; no amount of describing Chikinki's sound will suffice, you just have to hear it for yourself. If you've seen them live you'll be pleased to know this album manages to capture some of that raw energy whilst retaining that unmistakable coolness. If you havn't seen them live, you really should, the live set will leave you wanting more, and this album will at least give you something to chew on until your next Chikinki fix. If you've landed here from a search for the "Ether Radio" clip which featured on the recent Saab93 TV ad, trust me, get the album - you will not be disappointed. If you're new to the band, give it a couple of times over, and you'll be hooked. If you want the full experience get this then go see them on tour and you'll be treated to some classic tunes from LYT, plus some fresh and funky new ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you..., 18 Jan 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Lick Your Ticket (Audio CD)
In my opinion this has to be listened to a few times so that the songs make an impression, but once they have this is an album which will stick in your head and one you will keep coming back to. Their cool electro-rock sound which alternates between lively and spine tinglingly mellow reminds me a lot of Soulwax, so if they are your cup of tea I recommend buying this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Undiscovered Album of 2005, 10 May 2006

Mr. Maurice R. Stewart "The mighty mojo" (Liverpool, England) - See all my reviews

Wow! How this band aren't massive i'll never know.

12 Amazing songs fizzing with electro-pop energy, but also taking in the more chilled-out end of Dance music in songs like Time and All Eyes. Singer Rupert has a voice that says you either love or you don't (i do), but it adds a sense of urgency flanked by the twin synth assualt by Boris and Trevor.

The Rock/Dance hybrid formula is very popular right now, with the likes of Kasabian, The Go! Team and White Rose Movement all making waves, but these guys have the potential the be even bigger - they're already better.

Assassinator 13, Hate Tv and Like it or Leave it, with it's drum'n'bass beats and plucked acoustic melody, are my personal favourites, but it really is one of those albums you can play from start to finish.

The only one that's good instead of great is final track Forever, which is a little too mellow after the whirlwind that's gone before. Despite that, this is one of my favourite albums of the last 5 years, and as they have a new record out soon now is a great time to get this one to stay ahead of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, original, exciting, 11 Feb 2005
This review is from: Lick Your Ticket (Audio CD)
This album is full of excellent songs and the industry will soon catch up and realise that synths are the way forwards when it comes to new rock music...
You'll love Ether Radio, Assassinator, Hate TV, although I'm less of a fan of Scissor, Paper, Stone..
They're also brilliant live!!
Enjoy..x

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lick Your Ticket (Audio CD)
Bought this album on the strength of 'Drink' which was a track on a free Guardian CD one weekend. Having listened a few times over, the remaining tracks are definitely starting to grow on me. Good stuff...
