However something different doesn't always mean something good, but this really is different and it really is good. The pace of the album varies keeping it exciting and the lyrics are extremley catchy along with the beats which wouldn't sound out of place on an N.E.R.D album. Palumbo is as good as ever and it is refreshing to hear him with a completely different style. It is also good to hear him with Tim Armstrong on 'Dance party plus' as they both have such different voices.
This album really does deserve five stars and is the best album i have bought for a while.
The band mix electronica with hip hop beats,funk and at times its very boggie,the structure of the bass and drums keep the feet going mad,and there are crazy organs and the guitars keep in line with rock and punk at times but this album doesnt want to tip its toes into metal although at times the guitars do rock like the proverbial.
Those who know glassjaw know that daryl has a corking voice,almost distinctive at times,here daryl works with his clean vocals and has a voice that is impossible not to warm too,his style suits the style of the music and thats why this works.
The album opens with the track 'at the speed of a yellow bullet' and right away you will have a sense that this will be a fun album and with the next two storming tracks,least of all 'beating heart baby' which once you hear you will never forget,all that is proved.The album never takes itself too seriously but all the while has the word infectiuos stamped throughout,'the razor' and 'disco party plus' came the standards from falling but like the majority of albums there is the odd wasted moment and here it happens on one song which doesnt have the quality of what else can be found here but thats a small dip in form,but for that you get ten tracks that are just great,and i mean that,for those that think panic at the disco are the kings at this then you better think again,this is the business.
Beating Heart Baby
Brooklyn is Burning
Dance Party Plus
Disco Hades II
This album is a great mix of rock/pop/dance and it works really well. Great riffs along with Darryl Palumbo's soaring vocals really catch the ear and just ask for repeated listening.
So buy this album!
Also, the new album 'Popaganda' is out June 6th and on the strength of the 4 songs i've heard on the Head Automatica MySpace page (inlcuding the fab new single 'Graduation Day'), there is no doubt that the second album will be up there with the quality of the first - 5 stars
