Almost Too Cool
on 10 January 2004
I've been a fan of the Jaxx since the day 'Remedy' was released.
But for me, this album's much more of a grower than the previous two – I couldn't get into it for several listens. Some songs grab you straight away ('Right here’s The Spot', 'Lucky Star' and 'Plug It In') but others just sound like crazy random noise (esp. 'Supersonic', 'Tonight' and 'Living Room'). For this reason, I couldn’t make my mind up.
After a few listens, however, I was hooked and I now love this album to pieces!
The first few tracks give a great start to the album and ‘Good Luck’ will makes a great single. But then 'Supersonic' is a slight departure, although it picks up towards the end. 'Plug It In' is amazing, but leads on to the weakest track of the album, 'If I Ever Recover' – it’s just too slow! Don't worry though, as its only 3 minutes long and creates great contrast with the next song, 'Cish Cash'. This leads on to the end section which is very cool, esp. 'Hot 'N Cold' and 'Living Room'.
All in all, 'Kish Kash' is an amazingly cool fusion of funk, rock and house with some pumping tracks that'll be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Great grooves, top vocals and beats you MUST crank up the volume to fully appreciate.
Give it time, it will pay off.
