This review is from: Crystal Castles (Audio CD)
I never thought a band like Crystal Castles could ever hold my attention long enough for me to consider them anything other than a novelty band, but this debut has proved me wrong.
The glitchy, game boy style production really works, offset by the singer's brilliant mix of disjointed screams and tuneful mumbles. Between the sheer electronic anger of Alice Practice, or the slow paced synth of Untrust Us and Crimewave, to the sheer trippy Alice In Cyberland feel of Air Wars, this first album has it all. Well worth a listen.
