4.0 out of 5 stars Not as many KICKS as usual..., 7 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: DJ Kicks - Nightmares On Wax (Audio CD)
Don't ever listen to anyone that says Nightmares on Wax doesn't know how to write a phenomenal tune. He certainly does, and the strength of his solo albums Carboot Soul and Smoker's Delight will demonstrate this to anyone who cares to listen. However, there is a massive difference between the melodic pulsing rhythm of these previous albums and the more orthodox side of hip-hop that is on offer here. A noticable failing is that this quickly becomes very 'samey' - i loved the other albums because of the contrast of tracks like Nights Interlude, Me + You, Morse etc. This album sticks to its origins - bouncy hip-hop - perfect if that's what you want, but you kind of get the idea that Mr. Evelyn just got into and out of the studio as quickly as he could, picking up his cheque on the way out. Just look at the expression on his face on the sleeve... Hardly enthralled himself!
It still gets 4 stars, cos i love listening to it, and it really does have quite a bit to offer, but don't expect it to be one of 'those' albums - the ones you tell all your friends about (and often complete strangers too). You realise that DJ Kicks are never going to get a result like the Kruder + Dorfmeister album. They made themselves a milestone which looks like it'll never be passed.
