Having heard the single Crank It Up, I was intrigued by this band who had good beats and filthy basslines, but was hoping for lyrics that were slightly less stereotypical about uploading your new mp3 onto myspace and gatecrashing house parties. Unfortunately, they seem to suffer from the Get Cape Wear Cape Fly issue of having lyrics that attempt to sound cutting edge and witty, but just end up sounding like the wit of a 16 year old. But aside from that, they have one formula which they stick to, and it works- the dance beats and programmed bassline have a mission-music quality to it. It's just unfortunate as songs such as Crank It Up, and Spend Your Life which mixes acoustic loops with Nintendo bitcrusher sounds, songs which first sound brilliant, can end up sounding so angry and teenage.

Hadouken! have been receiving enormous hype from the likes of NME and X-FM for a long time now and, after a string of highly praised singles, this album comes bundled with a host of high expectations. One year ago, the Hadouken! sound and flavour was exciting and original, but this far ahead it's become a bit less powerful. It's a shame, because if Hadouken! had released this album back then, instead of the gimmicky USB mix tape, this could have had a far bigger impact. But, despite that, `Music for an Accelerated Culture' is still a decent debut. The singles, while not necessarily as exciting as they once were, are still great. The new songs are hit-and-miss; some of them (such as `Game Over') are great, whereas some of the others are somewhat unmemorable. This album makes for good background noise to accompany an alcohol-fuelled night out more than anything else. Despite its shortcomings though, there is certainly enough here to warrant a purchase if you liked the singles.

Not quite sure why people are saying that it is lyrically weak, as Hadouken is classified as an Indie band and most modern Indie bands are stereotypical like Hadouken anyway. I don't really care for the lyrics and I think each song is great.
Though, I think the album should last for longer. 30 minutes isn't long album wise at all for me.

I would classify Hadouken as electro-grime. I saw them at Sound City in Liverpool last year and thought they were interesting. Their album is pretty much as expected. It's just OK.

They sound unique, which is great, but the album itself does not sound unique; every track sounds the same as the others, and it is lyrically weak.

They have the right idea, but I'd like to see more diversity in the sounds they produce and slightly more imaginative and credible lyrics.

Hadouken! took a while to release this, their debut album, building up rather a lot of hype and something of an avid following on the back of a few rather excellent demos and singles. Based on this, there was a lot of expectation riding on their first actual album, which in my opinion isn't really realised. Much of the album is really quite average and unexpectedly for such a hyped up band, quite boring. There is very little of the exciting, wall shaking, stimulant driven anarchy of songs like "the Bounce" and a lot more safe, mainstream dance destined for very average club nights and radio play. You can't argue with hits like "That Boy that Girl" and "Liquid Lives", and the mental police siren riffs of "Get Smashed Gate Crash" can hardly fail to get the party started, but far too much of the album seems like filler, with average beats, forgettable riffs and hurried sounding lyrics. Flashes of their occasional brilliance and some definate dancefloor hits, but a disappointing lack of the neighbour-disturbing mayhem that their previous material hinted at. Probably one for background music at a drunken party.

Dubbed as "New Rave", "Electro Indie" and a few other cross over descriptions by the industry press, this debut album is an interesting mash up of sounds and influences.

Sickly sweet 80s/90s style computer game synth overtures mixed with some rocking guitar riffs and some barn storming beats makes for an up tempo music style. Add in some top of the lungs chanty choruses and imaginative lyric spits by James, & the fun never ends!

The lyrics hit a raw, contempory nerve at times, holding up a slightly dirty and warped mirror to society and our everyday lives, whilst still remaining slightly tongue in cheek.

I purchased this album mainly because of the price, I had heard of them but not actually listened to any of their music.
I am so glad I made this purchase, this is now right at the top of the most played list on my iphone. It's difficult to put this album into any one particular genre, I suppose I would describe it as indie-style vocals with a dance music style beat.
I think this would appeal to most music fans, I myself mainly listen to Drum & Bass, Dubstep and Heavy Metal (strange combination, I know!) but it will appeal to anyone who appreciates well written, creative songs.

I'll be keeping an eye out for future releases and will probably even pre-order them (something I never normally do!)

i bought this with high hopes, liquid lives drew me to them, leap of faith made me crave more, their usb mixtape was a hit n miss affair so the expectation for the album was high.

its not bad, its just not great, i like the lyrics a lot but the tunes just sound the same and gets dull quick, its the kinda album that makes great background music at parties but not one to listen to in your own time.

i guess its lacking the energy that the band seem to have whenever you see live footage of them, the sweatiness from the dancefloor hasnt made its way to the album.
