Album Review

Reviewed 2007-02-20 
Junior Boys deliver their usual chilled out, sugary electro-pop. If music were food the Junior Boys would be a watermelon popsicle. This album doesn’t have the consistency that their last album did (Last Exit), but there are plenty of things to like. There is more funk here, and a heavy dose of electro ballads if that is your thing. I do miss the R&B feel and skittery drum programming that made Last Exit so unique, but this album has a major home run “Caught In A Wave.” Check it out!
Best tracks: 8, 2, 3, 7

Track 1: FCC. There’s a word that sounds like the F-bomb in there a couple times. Mediocre tune anyway.
*Track 2: Bumpy upbeat tune with genius broken drums and catchy synth riffs.
Resembles the best moments on Junior Boys’ previous album.
*Track 3: Straight up chillout. Very tasteful and dreamy, I can imagine hearing this
tune next summer while watching the sun go down at Café del Mar.
Track 4: I’ve never been a fan of electronic tunes in 3/4 meter, but judge for yourself
Track 5: Supposedly the first single, but it sounds too clumsy and the “sha la la”-style
vocal refrains are annoying.
Track 6: Chunky and crisp 4x4 tune, but the crooning vocal melody makes it soundlike Sinatra on synthetic tablets. Blah.
*Track 7: Great tune. Killer bleepy synth riff, tasteful vocals (unlike the last track!), and the drums really make it move. Another chip off the Last Exit block
**Track 8: TUNE ALERT!! Crossover potential, too. This could work just as well on the beach as it could in a dark room with flashing lights. Slow but has the moody
tension to work in a heaving club at 5 in the morning. PLAY PLAY PLAY!
Track 9: Ambient, dreamy excursion into the land where songs go to die. Ugh.
Track 10: Another downtempo tune, nothing special.
