Kick-heavy squelchy electro-house - but not enough variety,
This review is from: Idealism (Audio CD)
This is kick-heavy squelchy electro-house. Digitalism's filthy and relentless basslines are getting them a lot of praise, and here is their first full album.
What Digitalism do, riding on the wave of popularity for electro-house that has been growing latley, they do really well. Tracks like "Idealistic" are excellent.
Unfortunately, the album shows that Digitalism are a bit of a one-sound band, and too many of the tracks sound extremely similar to the big remixes that they've done, or their hits such as "Zdarlight". There isn't enough depth or variety on this album to turn it into a classic. If you love some of their remix work then you'll enjoy this album on first listen but I don't think it's an album you'll be going back to over and over for years to come.
