3.0 out of 5 stars not bad Jan. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
apparently one of the members in the band has some background in audio engineering which shows because the drum sound on this album is extremely nice. the crisp and punchy drums provide the foundation for some quirky dorky yet catchy songs... Bank in particular is hard to get out of your head... there isn't enough on here is my only complaint. the album is short and i find it difficult to totally immerse myself in this album. shows great promise though. for fans of Out Hud

5.0 out of 5 stars great album May 9 2005
By Andrew Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You might have heard this group and not even know it. Their track "Swamp" is in the current Hummer TV commercial. Midwest Product is a trio out of Ann Arbor, MI, which is also where their label Ghostly is located. They are one of the best current bands out there that combines rock and electronic music. One of their strengths is that they combine their diverse range of styles into one unified sound. They also put on a killer live show. Their first record, Specifics, was all instrumental, but this one has lead vocals on a few tracks. Recommended if you like New Order, The Postal Service, Kraftwerk, Devo, Tortoise, or Prince.

5.0 out of 5 stars gotta see it to believe Nov. 16 2004
By Jeffrey D. Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of Midwest Product but a friend invited me to a show featuring midwest band "Calliope" and of course "Midwest product". When Midwest Product came on stage they shook the foundations. The cool collected symetry of thier studio music explodes onstage in a funk-filled blowout of electrolosis set to beats and live instrumentation that cannot be rivaled. "the 80's are back" my friend stated as they closed with a robotic but amazing cover of "when doves cry". As everyone reading reviews loves to compare artists, imagine that Mum and Mogwai were swallowed whole and spit back out again by Devo and Emperor Penguin. for starters. truth be told there is no comparison, so buy a copy for yourself and check them out live if they're around!
5.0 out of 5 stars WSOL by MP - Ghostly's best release. June 21 2014

To me, "World Series of Love" by Midwest Product represents one of the best efforts put forward throughout the history of electronic music, especially when it comes to blurring genre / style lines. MP took "four on the floor" electronica and made it accessible to dance kids, rock heads, and everything that makes up the gray area in between.

The label who introduced them originally, Ghostly International, was a small, no-namer out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, led by a young Sam Valenti IV. I believe they had four artists signed - Dabyre, Matthew Dear, Dykehouse, and Midwest Product. If the label still had just the fab four that they had launched with, I would still be a fan of the once-mighty Ghost today. Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned and business comes before creativity any day of the week.

It's a shame in a lot of ways that Midwest didn't make more music. After their break-up, Ghostly went on to sign a plethora of other artists. Sure, they still have Dear, Tycho (?), and some other names that I just can't seem to remember.

The point is that Midwest Product, for the short time that they were making music, accomplished so much with their sound, and yet only a few people know about them. I definitely feel the pain of A+R, especially since well, nothing comes close to this.

Over and out,
- G. to the L.

3.0 out of 5 stars Midwest Product - World Series Of Love Feb. 25 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Midwest Product's mini-album, "WORLD SERIES OF LOVE," adds a new instrument to the mix: vocals. From the angsty ravings on "Dead Cat" to the cool (and oddly humorous) 80s drone on "Bank" that would give Ladytron a run for their money, Midwest Product seems to be reaching for indie crossover--even though that's probably not their intention. On the instrumental tracks, "Swamp" sounds as if it could have come off of SPECIFICS, while "Avant Poop" goes for a more aggressive, distorted bass, and "Duckpond," mixes electronic atmospherics with art-rock. The chorus on "Motivator" seems a bit out of place to me, but "Umbrella" closes the album on a quiet, ambient note. Not as cohesive as SPECIFICS, I'm afraid.
