I tend to lean toward the older end of the music timeline nowadays but once in a while I hear some tunes that I think deserve a few more moments of my time. I love to listen to Daft Punk, 80's electronica, some modern dance, even David Guetta has become a regular on my playlist so a friend of mine tipped me a wink toward deadmau5. Having listened I immediately bought two more albums and I can honestly say, have not looked back. Mellow, soulful tunes, some 8 bit type tunes for us indie gamers and some cracking dance tracks. Each album usually has the remixed track containing every track from the album, so you can just fire it up and listen to it as one long track. Perfectly crafted music by the big eared one, again.

Who needs an album title when you're music sounds like this? Over the last few months Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman, has been steadily growing in demand as both a DJ and producer. He has written some of the summer's best dance tunes and in recent years has collaborated on awarding winning tracks like `All U Ever Want' with Newton-Davis and `After Hours' with Melleefresh. Last year he released his debut album called `Random Album Title' which was hailed with critical acclaim and was rewarded by a number one in the US Billboard Magazine's Hot Dance Airplay chart. In 2009 he has been heavily in demand as a live DJ performing headline slots at Oxegen, Leeds and Reading as well as Creamfields. This is Deadmau5' year and it's not over yet since he has just released his second album `For Lack of a Better Name'.

The album then starts with a lovely drum roll and echoing bass hits like cannon fire before it cracks into the majesty of `FML'. This is a taste of the dance credentials that will swell throughout the rest of the album. It has a persistent but not unoriginal beat and a nice break half way through the track, as well as moments that break the whole atmosphere down to nicely show off a lead line before building it all back to another break. `Moar Ghosts `N' Stuff' is named as though it should just be a lead in to the storming single of almost the same name. Instead Deadmau5 fills this track with some really nice moments. It is a strong bit of electro/dance in its own right. It has a useful beat and nice hook with some subtle little touches and variations that keep you guessing as to what might happen next. The previously mentioned `Ghosts `N' Stuff' featuring Pendulum's Rob Swire then kicks in and it sounds as glorious in your living room as it does in any club.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Oct. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Mice are, on the whole, annoying, frivolous and unnecessary creatures.
Of little use to man or beast - or Wolf come to that!
An unsatisfyingly meagre meal and notoriously difficult to digest.

Now that the nights are growing colder they arrive in their dozens
seeking warmth and sustenance in our cave. It is mostly a nuisance.
Other than Scatty and Gritz (the cubs) recruiting them as, somewhat
unwilling, playmates, they serve no useful purpose whatsoever.

Not so Deadmau5 (just loving that "5"!) - aka Joel Zimmerman when
in human form; a Canadian DJ, Producer and Composer.

His new album 'For Lack Of A Better Name' delivers some fine tunes.
In fact, there is much that it is possible to dance to here (I have
put this to the test when I thought nobody was watching but am sure
I heard Mrs Wolf giggling in the kitchen on more than one occasion!)

The beats are BIG; the bass subsonically intense; the musical
ideas, though hardly original, are none-the-less intelligent.
None moreso than opening track 'FML' which sets the bar pretty high
and then struggles elsewhere to deliver similar energy or complexity.
It is a demonically raucous percussive composition whose
interlacing sections generate visceral excitement and electricity.
Music for a house party in Hell!

'Moar Ghosts 'n' Stuff' and 'Ghosts 'n' Stuff' (the latter featuring a heavily
vocoder'd Mr Swire) are both uplifting stomping and storming highlights.

'Hi Friend' would have been a whole lot better without MC Flipside's vocal
interventions - "All systems go out on the floor-this is what you came here for"
- erm...as I said...a WHOLE LOT better!

'Soma' chugs along happily in its own company.

I was so disappointed with this deadmau5 album.

There is a lot more techno influence on it compared to the mainly house sound of the his first album (Random Album Title), which would be a wonderful thing if he was good at making techno, but in my opinion he isn't. I gave the whole thing a fair listen and found about 20 minutes of decent music beyond track 7.

Randon Album Title was one of the first electronic albums in ages that i've been truly excited about - i think it's one of the best ever made - so i was expecting a lot from the follow-up. But it's mostly average, sometimes silly, and only occasionally interesting.

Which is a shame!

I know this isn't many peoples favourite Deadmau5 album, but I found this perfect, In my opinion, this beats 4x4=12, as there are less vocals, and I like the fact that this is more minimalistic that most of his other albums, for the CD it has a nice case, and came undamaged. Overall 8/8
