5.0 out of 5 stars Along with Prince Blimey, Our Aim is to Satisfy... is among their strongest and oddly funniest works to date!, 8 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Our Aim Is To Satisfy Red Snapper (Audio CD)
"I cannot begin to tell you how great Our Aim is to Satisfy... is. It reminds you how much this band still kicks on strong and is more of an improvement and quirkier addition to their catalogue than Making Bones. This is Prince Blimey all over again but with more vocals and electronic music-inspired cues.

The two songs that steal the album's thunder a lot include Some Kind of Kink (a suggestive song full of extremely funky basslines, drums, and chaos with a disturbingly creative music video), Belladonna (a calm-tempered song that reminds you of their great acoustics), and The Rough and The Quick (a racy song full of groovy vibes and a sense of dance music wonder not found in the 2010s). Among other songs, Bussing (which has a great opening to any "trip-hop" song I've heard recently) and Shellback (which sounds like Portishead but with more of a funkier flair) steal the show here with the bizarre and danceable The Rake with rapping from MC Det.

The way the artwork on the cover, its witty cues, and the music here is presented shows you how much they put into work here to create a full-fleshed album much in the vein of their first album but with more budget. While that is a very rare thing for me to say that a later album is just as good as their original, this one and The Campfire Headphase are a few exceptions.

It is no wonder that this album got into the 1001 Albums to Listen Before You Die collection. It's just that good. Nothing more to mention. You'll have to listen to hear it for yourself."
