4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of pop/ country songs. June 1 2008

If anybody in the States is familiar with this band, then it's probably because Flight of the Conchords have become popular and, if you know about Flight of the Conchords, then you probably know about "Eagle vs Shark" and that The Reduction Agents appear on the soundtrack.

"80s Celebration" is a great pop song. But this album is so much more than that song. There's the other singles, which you can check outon ("The Pool" and "Waiting for Your Love") which are both good songs that start to show how varied The Reduction Agent's sound is. This album sounds like a mix tape; a very good mix tape complete with a country song that doesn't suck or just sound like classic rock with a twang.

I hope The Reduction Agents stick around for a while and get the dues they deserve, because they've created a really, really solid album here. The songs are all unique, smart, and catchy enough to warrent more attention than just being known for appearing on the soundtrack of some film.

I found this band while sampling 'Lil Chief (and Auckland based label)'s roster. The Reduction Agents and The Nudie Suits, both very different, are the best by far. Though, I have yet to really listen to Lawrence Arabia...
4.0 out of 5 stars buy this and tell your friends!! March 7 2009

This is a very interesting CD from an under-rated label and music scene. Lil chief records in New Zealand has been putting out a number of quirky gems. This particular release by the Reduction Agents is very good. Depending on your taste it could be described as "varied" or it could be called "inconsistent." Regardless, when it is good it is reeeaaally good, and the less good songs are still enjoyable. there are no clunkers here.

The "hit" from Eagle Vs Shark "80-s celebration" is a great, catchy pop song that, while fairly simple, stands up to multiple listenings.

To me the best song by far is "waiting for your love" which feels like a classic from the best of the early 80's new wave era (maybe a little like Aztec Camera?). Again, it is a fairly simply structured song, but it builds tremendous emotional tension. It's just an awesome song.

So, please buy this record (directly from lil chief records...sorry Mr. Amazon), love it, then tell all your friends.

Also, Lil Chief has a pretty diverse batch of videos available on youtube.
