4.0 out of 5 stars grower., 14 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Much Against Everyone's Advice (Audio CD)
I first heard of Soulwax when I saw them support The Wannadies?! They clearly blew them out of the water, and every other band that followed them on their many festival appearances that year (2000). After getting this album I had to wonder whether I had been a bit too drunk on those occasions. It seemed to contain none of the power that I had remembered, and I was disappointed by how flat it all sounded. Anyone who's seen them live will contest that the human breakbeat solo of the recorded version of Too Many Dj's pales in comparison to what they did live.
Despite this I still listened to the album (rarely) because I really liked one or two songs off of it. Then by late 2001 I realised it was getting played at least a couple of times a week (Just kind of crept up on me.) so I have to admit it, every cut on this record is really good and as a whole I love this album. It still pales when compared to their live work, but they are an exceptional live act - kind of remind me of The Who who are my favourite band, I love every album but none of them match up to my live recordings.
If you like guitar music with intelligent lyrices, then you need to own this record.
