5.0 out of 5 stars Best of 2013 (So Far), 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Melt Yourself Down (MP3 Download)
This has got to be one of the best debut albums I've heard so far this year, an certainly the most wild, insane and immensely entertaining. Melt Yourself Down is very hard to pin down genre wise, although it does merge together elements of Jazz, Electronic and Dance Music with a rather middle eastern feel and raw punk energy, all of which make for a particularly fine, not to mention explosive album.

This is certainly true of the first half of the album, where all of the tracks are upbeat, riddled with infectious, danceable hooks, but at the same time these tracks are quite experimental and certainly daring. A lot of them feature very few vocals, which I think works in their favour as vocalist Kushal Gaya seems to work best delivering short bursts of lyrics, roars and yelps rather than dominating the songs, as evidenced in the second half on 'Free Walk' which is rather mellow in comparison to the rest of the album and focuses a lot more on the vocals.

Aside from 'Free Walk' however, every other track on the album is a winner, particularly the singles, 'Fix My Life' and 'Release' but also the very middle eastern feeling 'Kingdom of Kush' and the stunning, riotous finale that is 'Camel.' Over all this is a thoroughly enjoyable, accessible but also unique album and well worth your time.
