Product Description

Amazon.ca

Like so many Japanese artists of late (Cornelius, Zoobombs), Boom Boom Satellites take Western music and reinterpret and reinvent it with dizzying results. Boom Boom's stratospheric flights of big-beat frenzy recall Phil Spector producing the Chemical Brothers or deviant computer nerd Aphex Twin jackhammering the funky breakbeats of the Propellerheads. Expanding on the big-beat genre with the occasional punk vocal or fractured dub symphony, Boom Boom make music for the mind, mad soundscapes of cosmic riffing, vicious stereo panning and organic pile-driver beats. On "Push Eject," a Noel Gallagher-esque vocal and a Hendrixy guitar warp intertwine, creating a hallucinogenic sound not unlike that of falling into a bottomless volcano. Instruments blur and collide, only to resurface elsewhere. Titanic, John Bonham-ish beats and ricocheting Moogs fill "Limbo," a gleeful treatise on headphone sex. Free-jazz saxophone and flute play Humpty Dumpty solos in "An Owl," while "Oneness" approximates the Zoobombs' taste for raging Stooges-style punk. Even string quartets are spliced and diced in "On the Painted Desert," a majestic, classical gas for club kids. (Note: listen for the buried radar "ping.") The effects are the icing, but as with most of the global big-beat posse, slamming rhythms are the heart of Boom Boom Satellites, be it a braggart hip-hop bounce or hard-driving funk pummel. That, coupled with the duo's mind-blowing dub treatments, makes Out Loud one of the year's most vital electronica releases. --Ken Micallef

1. Missing Note: Excessively slow to start (every time I want to listen to it I have to fast forward at least a minute), but when it finally gets going from the painfully slow intro it's very dark, deep, and heavy. It's also much too long. Not the best on the album, but something cool and different to come back to now and then. 3/5
2. Batter The Jam No.3: Like Missing Note, it takes a little while to get started, which does hurt it a bit. It would sound good as a shorter song, but it's awfully repetitive and the beats just don't vary enough. 2/5
3. Push Eject: It's not hard to see why this is a popular single, it's an extremely fast-paced breakbeat frenzy with an outstanding guitar solo. Good vocals too, but the english is a little iffy. Still, definitely one of the best on the album. 4/5
4. Limbo: A very good song that is on the slow side, but very catchy and uses some effects from Push Eject nicely without being repetitive. A little long though. 3.5/5
5. Intruder: Very short and fast, it's an outstanding piece with a huge concentration of breakbeats and outstanding drumwork. A prelude to the real meat of the album. One of the best. 5/5
6. An Owl : An extremely well done song, the jazzy effects complement the drumwork creatively. It suffers from being a bit repetitive though. 4/5

7. Oneness: The oddest track on the album, this is essentially a rock song with lots of guitar and heavy vocal work. That said, I didn't like it that much at all. The guitar drowns out the vocals unnecessarily and the track seems overly noisy. Could have been a lot better with some remixing. 2/5
8. Scatterin' Monkey: A song similar to Push Eject in terms of drum effects, it's very heavy on the breakbeats and is quite creative and nonetheless stands out from the other tracks well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beats That Move You May 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first found out about BBS from Ridge Racer V and their song Fogbound, I was instantly hooked. After listening to a few more of their songs, I bought Out Loud and haven't stopped listening to it in 2 days.
It's an amazing mix of some AWESOME drumming (Intruder is possibly the coolest drum solo I've heard), great beats, and some nice singing (such as Push Eject). If you want something you can move to, this is a MUST have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good to miss April 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
These guys manage to be new and old at the same time. You think it's 21st century electronica, but it's not, it's freakin' jazz. Jazz as good as any of the luminaries of the last century could manage but with some new instruments, some new techniques, and some new styles thrown in. Okey, it's electronica, and techno, and whatever else you want to call it too but more than anything coming out today (and much of today's techno/electronica could be classified as jazz) this is honest-to-goodness jazz, pushing boundaries and demolishing preconceptions. You listen to some guys with a turntable and a dub machine layer on an ounce of distortion and some FX on a sample and you think you're listening to the cutting edge. You aren't. You listen to these guys and they slice into your brain with a razor sharp beat honed to infinite sharpness. Just listen to "Missing Note" or "Push Eject" or "Oneness" and tell me there is anyone else out there that does anything close to that as well as they do it. Yeah, they're good, they're damned good, and I would advise anyone with real taste in music to give this album a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Innovative Oct. 8 2002
By Kyte
Format:Audio CD
The first Boom Boom Satellites song I ever heard was "Push Eject". For me it was something fresh and different, a hard hitting creative song. Eventually I tracked down the "Out Loud" album and I was simply speechless. This is the first electronic-type album I ever purchased as I'm no fan of Crystal Method or Chemical Brothers. The range of emotions and musical styles that this album alone cover are almost limitless. For a debut album, BBS really knew what they were doing. From jazzy to atmospheric and touching on industrial, adding some break-beat, this album is simply a masterpiece of sound. I recommend this to anyone that says they are a fan of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The joys of electronica done well Sept. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As the RPM (techno, industrial, goth, electronic, new wave, gabba, poa, rave, etc.) Director of a College radio station, I have to listen to a lot of music that I have to determine whether or not I want to play it on the air. I must admit, there is a lot of crappy music that gets sent to us. This is not one of them. If you wish to expand your musical tastes beyond the simple loops of Chemical Brothers, beyond the same 'ol synth stylings of Crystal Method, and move into an etherial world of drum and bass with no boundries, this is your chance. This is just beautiful music. I have become tired of the how mediochre popular (American) music has become, and I'm glad that the Japanese are looking into the world of music the same way they look at technology, taking a concept and re-inventing it, making it a thousand times better. One request - please don't whine about how it's not like Crystal Method. There are other things out there. Expand your mind. Amazon.com is a portal. Use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember when electronica meant innovation? March 7 2000
By J. Tidwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These guys do. I'm not sure why all the comparisons to Crystal Method (even in their days at City of Angels, CM never sounded like this) or why someone would put Photek in the same category as Crystal Method. Disregard all of that. If you've been a dance fan long enough to remember that the genre is all about pushing the envelope then you will love this CD. Insane structuring, inventive vocal overlays, just plain good.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent!! Oct. 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
will you quit this crystal method thing, lord CM's gotta be one of *the* most overrated electronic acts out there, they're just dead horrible..wannabes. now if u want just great, refreshing electronic, then get "out loud". I was blown away by this debut. It has such a wide variety of musical elements blended in. jazz, strings, guitar all nicely welded together with d&b and frantic breakbeats. go buy it - now =)

5.0 out of 5 stars A real trip July 22 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Boom Boom Satellites has come up with a very strong debut release. I believe this album is highly intelligent mix of drum and bass, clever lyrics, outstanding accompanying instrumentation, and superb sound engineering. The songs vary in moods from the insane and fast 'Oneness' and 'Push Eject' to the intense and somber 'On The Painted Desert'. All the songs are tirelessly crafted, so no endless loop beats here, the rhythms are dynamic and jive in a dizzying array of methods. Jazz elements can be detected in a sharp flight of the bumblebee, Dizzy Gillespie sort of way. Classical and other international elements can often be detected overlaying heavy bass and break beats. All in all if you are looking for a real music trip, the best of Japanese techno, and excellent instrumentals wrapped into one package, this album hits the spot.
