Is it rock or is it Memorex? The Propellerheads have the trademark Big Beat aesthetic, thumping trancelike rhythms, along with a level of rock intensity. Overall 'Decksandrumsandrockandroll' combines thick heavy backbeats with guitar-vitriol, creatively chosen samples/overdubs, making for a fast-paced relentless sound. This CD stands above the rest of the Big Beat genre, with the same type of free-spirited abandon reminiscent of 70's rock, plucking strands from a wide range of musical elements in typical electronica fashion. Yet this is not some hastily put together computer driven beat-fest, it's musically challenging, exceptional production, demonstrating artistic integrity all in the spirit to create. Exhilerating, hypnotic and rhythmic. Born to run, born to dance, and feel free to imagine the wind blowing against your face.
