A Bit Of A Let Down :(
on 22 September 2009
I'm a huge, and I mean huge fan of Basement Jaxx. Having been totally bown away and sucked in By Remedy back in 99, to dancing like a crazed fool in the rain at their 2007 appearance at V, they have fast become one of my facorite bands (mainly for their outdoor live appearances, Where It's At is still the most amazing song I've ever witnessed live,don't believe me, search You Tube for "Where's your head at 2004", worth a watch !!!)
Anyway, enough of me bigging them up.
This album is a let down for me, it's not so much of an album than a collection of songs that don't really seem to fit. It's the England football team, a few stars, some over rated players, a couple of ugly ones, the real thing is though they dont work as a unit. That'd be this album.
With the exception of the Title Track Scars, the incredibly catchy single Raindrops and Twerk, everything else is a bit, hmmm, how to put it, forgetable.
I've only listend to it three or four times so far, maybe it's a grower, I hope so because I genuinely want to love this album, at the moment, I feel a little underwhelmed, here's hoping that changes with time.
Oh and the Yoko Ono track is woeful, but worth a listen just to hear her sound like she's given birth to John Lennons Corpse.
