This review is from: Songs For Creatures (Audio CD)
Although awarding five stars to this album would be an exagerration of its qualities, the Psychonaults have proven themselves to be more than great technicians but also strong songwriters. From the psychodelic crescendos of Circles to the fantastic dance-floor electro funk of Empty Love and Joy Division-esque The World Keeps Turning - The Psychoanaults evoke a rich and textured variety of styles, while remaining greater than a sum of their parts. The 'hired' vocal imput - unlike many contemporary dance acts - does not grate against or spoil the carefully layered soundscapes, especially in the Beta Band dub of 'Magnetic' or the closing epic 'Take Control'. Highly promising and very commendable.
