Fans who have bought the last two albums where John has collaborated with Louis will know the two combined talents spark off eachother perfectly. The results are a mixture of bleepy trippy songs and 4:4 club cross-overs, keeping keyboard elements from Metamatic era (arguably his best solo period) in the mix alongside sparse but catchy modern production. His lyrical visions are as alienated as ever, robotics, technological jargon, shadowy forms and bleak scenery - but overall this is probably the most upfront of their albums to date. Drive pulsates along, if a little monotinously at times, but is a great contrast to the more plaintive Cinema. Highlights include Broken Furniture (could be a single, if they chose...), the excellent trippy Sidewalking (Kraftwerk, move aside!), She Robot and the very fierce title track. But there isn't a weak track here, particularly after a few listens. Vocally this set seems a little stronger than Pleasures of Electricity, and musically covers 80s to 2003 in styles - albeit a mechanical electronic 2003! Some of the tracks have less melody, but their sinister momentum keeps you hooked. Some nice 'dark' photo images, as usual, in a deluxe booklet round off this package perfectly. Well worth a listen!

After the musical desert, in terms of output, during the late 80's and early 90's John Foxx seems to be trying to make up for lost time in recent years.
This is an enjoyable record. It is less 'Kraftwerk circa '77' than 'The Pleasures of Electricity' and is better for that. The tracks where a harder edge come into play such as the title track and 'Drive' work best with a smattering of cyber-punk almost perceptable.
Where I think the record lapses a tad is in some of the tracks such as 'sex video' and 'she robot' where I got the sense that someone had thrown in a few fillers. Even so, if you enjoy electro-pop/rock with references to the ground breaking electronic early-eighties records that have taken us to where we are now, then you will enjoy this record.

Great stuff, absolutely great stuff! This one is marvellous! Sounds like Metamatic in 2003 with some modern elements but also the ARP Odyssey and the CR78 drummachine do their greatest work. Ultraviolet/Infrared, Sidewalking, Crash & Burn (fans of industrial and EBM will love this one) and Broken Furniture are the best tracks. But none of the tracks is bad. Edgy sounds, odd lyrics and a lot of analogue mayhem make this album one of the best synth-pop releases this year. Great work John and Louis. Hope to see you around Germany in the upcoming months again!

Quite simple, "Crash & Burn" is a great album.
Last year's "The Pleasures of Electricity" (which I'll just refer to as TPOE) was a brilliant album in my opinion; retro electronica yet contemporary at the same time (yeah).... an album containing some great songs that never got the recognition they deserve.
Crash & Burn is really a progression from TPOE, minimal, often dancey electronica with a real energy and drive.
It's quite an accessible album, and given some good promotion, it could stand a chance of having a hit single. Every song has a mass of interesting, intriguing and often bizarre lyrics, which instantly bring a variety of images and atmospheres into the mind.
The album artwork is as good as ever - this particular package has a variety of black & white images in the booklet, which look like stills from 50s sci-fi b-movies... buildings, cars, hands, people, faces, places. Foxx has always used a variety of perfect and interesting images that seem to match his music so well. Here's a classic example.
Crash & Burn seems to revive that period from the late 70s / early 80s when a bunch of artists emerged, including Simple Minds, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk's work at the time and early Human League, all who produced such individual, often futuristic sounding music, some of which was way ahead of its time, and my some accounts, still is. Specially when you compare it to what else was around at the time.
This album has many tracks that would not sound out of place on a dancefloor. In fact, if it was given the chance I think people would love it. The opening number, "Drive" is certainly addictive, with its synth riffs and driving beat, not to mention its memorable lyrics. "Broken Furniture" has some pretty obscure lyrics, but another memorable and addictive tune.
