3.0 out of 5 stars Dark dance music! But alas the song I bought it for is not on it..., 4 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Crystal Castles [II] (Audio CD)
This album is quite unique, unlike anything else I've ever heard. If I really had to compare them to anyone, I'd say Crystal Castles are a little like the Prodigy in their early days - think 'No good (start the dance)' and you'll have a rough idea of what to expect.

In general, I like the album, though some of the songs are a bit samey in my opinion. There is 1 song (I forget the name as I listen to this in the car) which is pretty awful as it sounds like a mashup mix of samples that just don't work together. If you buy this album, you'll know which one I mean! I actually purchased this because I kept hearing 'Not in love' on the radio and I just loved it. However, this album does not contain the version I was accustomed to, the version featuring Robert Smith from the Cure...VERY disappointed, as the album version is nowhere near as good. Instead, it features a synth'd voice (as do many of the songs) which is okay, but nothing like Mr Smith's excellent vocals on the single version. So if like me you wanted that song, either buy it as an MP3 download or wait for the day this album gets re-released with the PROPER version on it.

Overall, I'd say this album is most likely to appeal to early 90's ravers and anyone else who appreciates that sort of music.
