Product description

Review

The two loopy English knob-tweakers who created these 13 hyperkinetic, hypnotic sound collages and dance tracks ... are musical sushi chefs.... They are purveyors of techno, or electronica, the studio-assembled hodgepodge of canned, synthetic drumbeats, tape loops and snatches of melody sampled from old records. Happily, [they] also wisely incorporate flesh-and-blood performances by ... Shirley Bassey, De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers. The guest turns make for the album's most appealing tracks.... -- People

Since the Chemical Brothers explosion, new big-beat acts from the U.K. are greeted with skepticism, but Propellerheads are no copycats. Alex Gifford and Will White did the usual groundwork by releasing singles and EPs before giving up a full album. The groovy single "History Repeating," featuring '60s cabaret vocalist Shirley Bassey, plays slightly into the lounge revival of the late '90s but with a James Bond-esque style that grabs attention similar to Portishead's "Sour Times." The recurring spy film theme makes this a perfect soundtrack for Austin Powers's first rave--"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is actually a Bond remake. Propellerheads also slip in full-on "rock" jams ("Bang On!") and slick urban cut-ups reminiscent of De La Soul, who appear on "360° (Oh Yeah?)." Shifting tempos from laidback to lightning-fast with exceptional ease, Decksandrumsandrockandroll is a solid collection of funky, jazzy, hip-hop-influenced dance music that has earned its mainstream acceptance by delivering the goods. --Liisa Ladouceur
