This review is from: Reflektor (Audio CD)
I've only had this album for a few days but I'm starting to really like it even thought I was worried that I might not. An added bonus is that ( at least to my ears ) it's not as religiously lo-fi as the first three albums. Lots of nice songs, and James Murphy's input certainly adds something to the whole.
However, one think stops me giving this five stars, and that's the decision to split it into two 35-minute CDs rather than simply amputating five minutes of pointless electronic onanism from the end of "Supersymmetry." If I wanted to get up and change discs halfway through an album I'd buy vinyl ! Perhaps Win and Regine are getting a little too far up themselves ? I can't help thinking this was done for "art" rather than for musical reasons. Oh, and the sleeve is rubbish - like a vinyl double album ( Ummagumma ? ) but with no protective sleeves to keep the discs in. Still, it doesn't detract from the music !
