dance music that does it job,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Push the Beat for This Jam: the Singles 1994-2002 (Audio CD)
I really liked the kinetic sound of this band when I first started listening to them when I was 17. At the time I was concerened with what the music sounded like and not about the lyrical content. I think this band would work better as a instrumental band with ocassional vocal songs- I don't think I have come across a band (Dance, rock or whatever) that has had lyrics as hilariously bad as this band. I seen an interview with the singer on youtube and he said he relies on an english dictionairy to write songs- you can imagine stringing random crap like 'i scream icecream in dance' together to create lyrics, realising that it makes a tiny but of sense, but without realising how mind numbingly dull it sounds having only a conversational understanding of the english language. It is unbelievable the rubbish this band samples and just puts a tiny voice over it to release as songs, but alot of the time it works. What it also unbelievable is the amount of lyrics that are recycled in future songs- I know for a fact that a 12 year old (english or german) would not be so stupid as to make the same error time and time again). If I was the singer I would whip myself everynight for such dumb lyrics. Having said that the music as instrumentals does make you want to get up and dance.
