4.0 out of 5 stars A really good release, 30 May 2007

This review is from: Soundboy Rock (Audio CD)
There's a big move to 80's-retro, clicky and 'Commodore 64 game soundtrack'-style sounds in a growing wave in the wide and wonderful world of Dance Music.

Much of this kind of music doesn't do anything for me at all. It's often barely tuneful, sometimes grating, and smacks of a sound that is going to date very quickly, once folk realise that isn't nothing short of annoying to listen to. It appears that underproduction is the new overproduction.

This album goes down that sonic avenue. But this album is different - it's a pleasure to listen to! They do allow big multitimbral sounds as well as minute '8-bit' waveforms. It is reminiscent of some of the better production values of the Nu Wave and Electric era in the early 80's, and a reason to reminiscence on quality music from my youth.

Some tracks stand out in both tunefulness and sound. Tracks 4, 6, 12, 15, 16 particularly so. That, for me, is alot of outstanding tracks on one album.

As the first reviewer here has said, it _is_ a grower. Listen to it once or twice, drop it for a week or two, and when you're in a good mood, pull it out again, pump up the volume - put the needle on the record

when the drum beats go like this.....
