3.0 out of 5 stars After over a year of waiting, Hadouken! finally deliver their album debut, 17 May 2008
This review is from: Music For An Accelerated Culture (Audio CD)
Hadouken! have been receiving enormous hype from the likes of NME and X-FM for a long time now and, after a string of highly praised singles, this album comes bundled with a host of high expectations. One year ago, the Hadouken! sound and flavour was exciting and original, but this far ahead it's become a bit less powerful. It's a shame, because if Hadouken! had released this album back then, instead of the gimmicky USB mix tape, this could have had a far bigger impact. But, despite that, `Music for an Accelerated Culture' is still a decent debut. The singles, while not necessarily as exciting as they once were, are still great. The new songs are hit-and-miss; some of them (such as `Game Over') are great, whereas some of the others are somewhat unmemorable. This album makes for good background noise to accompany an alcohol-fuelled night out more than anything else. Despite its shortcomings though, there is certainly enough here to warrant a purchase if you liked the singles.
