umm, yes ok....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crystal Castles (Audio CD)
Waited ages for these guys to release a record. It comes out, stick it on and....It all sounds really flat and rigid. Nearly every track has the same basic beat behind it (yes even "love and caring" except they stuck it through some distortion). With this they add a few sound effects and then shout or whatever (as if this is something new?). The thing I noticed about each song is that they stick to a single style or approach. For example, one style of song might be bleeping, glitching all over the place and then the next style of song will be relaxed, something to chill to. They don't mix the styles.
Its a right mixbag of songs on this record too. Some filler, a remix, and a track that appeared yonks ago on "digital penetration". The last track is well out of place, its as if they got bored and decided to do a bit of shoegazing.
If you like Kylie Minogue but rather her shouting/screaming over her music then Crystal Castle's is for you.
