Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 just barely misses the mark July 15 2004

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but... Jan. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Basement Jaxx appeared on my recommended list several times and I finally yielded and bought their new "Kish Kash" CD. It's an excellent album. All the songs are catchy, enjoyable and with a good solid danceable beat. "Cish Cash" is my favorite track, and it's exquisite! The whole album strikes me as being very enjoyable party music and it would be at it's best played loudly in a room full of dancing people. Unfortunately, that's not the way I listen to music.
Perhaps it's just me, but I have difficulty listening to this CD. Basement Jaxx present a complex and cluttered soundscape. Too complex and cluttered, in my opinion. In places this disc sounds as if it was recorded in a crowded and noisy room, perhaps with a couple competing stereos off in the distance. In other places it sounds "fuzzy," as if I was trying to listen to my stereo through a foam-rubber room divider. In still other places I wonder if there's something wrong with my speakers, but my speakers are new and of reasonable quality and they sound perfectly good with other electronic CDs. I take it that Basement Jaxx have deliberately produced this cluttered and distorted soundscape, and some people might even prefer it that way. My aging ears have problems with it and I long for cleaner and clearer sound. Yet the songs are excellent, and everything comes together in perfect fashion on "Cish Cash."

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucky star Jan. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
I loved Basement Jaxx's debut album "Remedy" but when "Rooty" came out, I did not like the singles from the album therefore had no interest in getting "Rooty". When I heard that my favorite goth diva Siouxsie Sioux was contributing her vocals to one of the songs on "Kish Kash", interest immediately piqued. I finally got around to buy "Kish Kash" this weekend. I immediately loved the entire cd. It was a mish-mash of hip hop, house, techno, rock and pop music. Basement Jaxx comes a long way from the duo that I became familiar with on "Remedy". I absolutely loved Siouxsie Sioux's vocals on "Cish Cash". She sounds absolutely amazing on this song, not to mention incredible after all these years in the music business. I also dug the songs the Meshell N'degeocello tracks "Right Here's the Spot" and "Feels Like Home". I am certainly not a fan of hip hop music but I love the hip hop beats heard through out the cd but especially on "Lucky Star" which features the rapping of Dizzee Rascal. It had a really good funky beat to dance to. I love "Kish Kash". This album definitely surpasses "Remedy".

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge it on the first listen... Dec 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Basement Jaxx since hearing "Where's Your Head At" on the Tomb Raider soundtrack. Their albums "Remedy" and "Rooty" are two that get heavy rotation in my music collection, so I was happy to hear about the release of "Kish Kash."
With that as background, I have to admit that upon my first playing of "Kish Kash," I had a similar reaction to some of the other reviews here - slight disappointment. Not that I found it horrible, it was just quite different from their previous work. I make a point never to judge a record on the first listen, however, so I continued to play it. AN INTERESTING THING HAPPENED! With each listen, I began to enjoy and appreciate "Kish Kash" more and more. Maybe it takes a few listens for the grooves to really penetrate? LOL Whatever it is, I now count this album as among my favorites. Great for working out (mountain biking is what I do - perfect fit!), driving fast, parties, etc. "Plug It In" is my favorite track and J.C. Chasez is a surprisingly good vocalist - who knew? It's also very cool to hear Siouxsie Sioux again on the title track!
Anyway, if you enjoy the Jaxx and don't mind expanding your musical horizons a bit, I'm certain you'll love "Kish Kash" as much as I do...

4.0 out of 5 stars It's all about winning the war
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. Read more

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. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars their worst cd
the only good song is tonight, a song you would expect from them. everything else is just poorly cut up pop-rap beats on top of bad songs.
