I've been a long time fan of Basement Jaxx and have enjoyed most everything they've done over the years. Crazy Itch Radio is an incredibly fun album. There's a nice variety of tunes, some amusing interludes, and as always, an amazing opening track (Hush Boy) that's basically worth the price of the CD itself. Crazy Itch definitely follows the Jaxx' stylistic development. It's a logical progression from Kish Kash, but is, in my opinion, a superior album. The production is pretty amazing. The songs are packed with little sounds, odd samples, and intricately arranged parts, which all find their own space in the mix.
Although there is a sort of narrative element, this isn't really a concept album, per se. It's thematically unified, but that's about it. The songs stand on their own. Of course some are better than others. I won't waste your time describing all the songs I liked - you'll find your own when you listen to it. I will say that you won't be disappointed. If you are familiar with Basement Jaxx, you pretty much know what to expect. If you're new to this music, this is an excellent place to start - it's a toss up between Crazy Itch and Rooty.
As an added bonus, you can watch the video for "Oh My Gosh". There's also an MP3 of the song. I'm not sure why it wasn't included on the album as it's incredibly catchy.
Ultimately, this album was worth the wait. Basement Jaxx is as creative as ever. I can highly recommend purchasing this album. For fans it's a no brainer. Enjoy!
