Product Description


A squiggly, delirious house-pop classic that’s easily among the best albums of 2003, this British production duo’s third album is an interesting parallel to Outkast’s Speakerboxxx, as both albums make their funk the P-Funk, Parliament and Prince looming large throughout, but always in innovative ways. No album (and it is an album, a satisfyingly cohesive and narrative whole) of any genre in recent memory has done the guest vocalist thing as perfectly or as eclectically. Meshell Ndegeocello delivers two of her finest and sexiest performances yet; Lisa Kekaula from garage-soul rockers the BellRays revs up her delicious, Tina Turner -y vocals to near bursting point on "Good Luck." Meanwhile, ‘N Sync's JC Chasez remakes himself as a sort of electro-punk Michael Jackson on "Plug It In"; and speaking of electro-punk, on the anthemic "Cish Cash," Siouxsie Soux herself returns to show all the Liquid Sky’d-out denizens of Williamsburg and Berlin what a postpunk diva really sounds like. This is joyous music as innovative as it is bootylicious. With all its genre-defying tricks, Kish clearly owes a debt to the millenarian bootleg craze, but these songs are more than novelty mash-ups, they’re songs, and this is an album you’ll play years from now. --Mike McGonigal

4.0 out of 5 stars The Jaxx deliver again! Feb. 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Kish Kash is one of the best electronica/dance CDs out right now. It ranks right up there with the Chemical Brother's "Singles" and mr.deviant's "Techno Obsession". Basement Jaxx have always been known for merging dance music with experimental electronica...but they do it in a good way. Basement Jaxxs succeed where other experimental acts fail, because the Jaxxs know their fans want to move and groove to the music, Kish Kash delivers the goods in the groove department. Kish Kash is an excellent CD that is still spinning weeks after being dropped in my CD player. Should be a must buy on every electronica/dance fan's list.

4.0 out of 5 stars just barely misses the mark July 15 2004
By B
Format:Audio CD
I bought Rooty without hearing a note of it. I was disappointed at first but I eventually thought it was awesome. I bought Kish Kash not even knowing there was another album coming out and expected to be blown away. Good Luck delivered pretty well as an opener, although I thought sometimes the tension-building drum rolls ended up being anticlimactic. Right Here's the Spot (guest artist! i'm supposed to be excited) is standard funky Jaxx magic; it feels kind of like yo-yo but a whole lot better. Okay, i have high hopes for the cd now. Lucky Star is awesome too, even though Dizzee Rascal is the most unintelligible rapper ever born.
Then there was Supersonic. I don't like it. Maybe the blues funk techno thing with a weak backbeat just takes a lot of getting used to, but it sounds like a dusty rodeo of broken singing robots. Plug it in was very good even though I was embarassed about enjoying a song with you know who on the mic. Cish Cash was also to strange for my taste; the dirty backdrop might have been cool if the lyrics were tolerable at all. Then Tonight is kind of a slow burner, but it feels underdeveloped. Hot 'n Cold is very infectious, but it's as bare bones as anything the Jaxx made since Remedy. Then Living Room...I mean COME ON! again with the drum crescendos that go NOWHERE. Speaking of nowhere, Feels Like Home still seems to me like a bloated and overly pretentious idea, even though I may not be giving the beat-less limbo of a song enough of a chance.
I hear they updated their mixing equipment for this album, and on many of the tracks, the sound is much bigger and thicker, but sometimes it ends up sounding more sterile and less direct than Rooty sounded. This wouldn't matter as much if the album didn't contain total lapses of judgement like the last two tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars heroin-chic, acid-infused pop June 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is perfect for summer. I must admit I was a little phased by some songs upon first listen - at how really bizarre they are!
But its truly a venture into this hyperpaced, acid-infused carnival. Every song is pure hyped up fun - but not without a large dose of serious musicianship, computerization, and thought.
If you arent too sure about it at first...I recommend playing it while working out or getting pumped up for a fast night on the town.
This is the first online review I've given, basically because you wont regret getting this CD. Its like Groove Armada's amazing 2003 disc "LoveBox" - just far better. And Outkast will be long forgotten if this disc really gets its arse out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible. There, I said it. May 5 2004
By Nox6xuL
Format:Audio CD
I've steadfastly loved everything I've heard Basement Jaxx put out to date. Until I heard this mishappen mish-mash of ... whatever this is.
I wish I could say that it's something I could see myself liking after I've given it a few good listens ... but seriously, once is enough for me. This is noisy, cluttered, confusing, and I'm not all that sure there's a setting, a scene, or a substance that could make me understand and/or appreciate this recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's all about winning the war April 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Basement Jaxx has always been the most diverse dance music team. Far more risk taking than either Chemical Brothers or Fatboy Slim. Probably only Leftfield is more exotic. It's all about moving your body. The first two Basement Jaxx records were very different from each other. There is a lot of hard driving disco on most of their records. Kish Kash is probably more heavy funk than their past records. For this new sound they get singers Meshell Ndegeocello, JC Chasez, and Dizzee Rascal. JC Chasez rips it up on "Plug It In" and sounds like a Michael Jackson at his best in the process. Siouxsie Sioux sings the title track that sounds like a hyped up punk track, much like The Prodigy. Siouxsie sounds most unlike herself in years. Meshell Ndegeocello is the standout singer on her two songs, especially "Right Here's The Spot." A definite winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great April 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lisa from the Bellrays' appearance on Good Luck alone makes this album worth it's price. Awesome. Dizzy Rascal sounds great and weird as always. Great beats to rock out to. Buy this party album for your next dance attack.
