“Deserter Songs”

published 09/04/2003

ProMaking the Indie-Dance Crossover Genre Cool Again.

ConsCan't Play This Album Using Winamp Because of the ...

Riding on the back some impressive critical reactions, I went out and bought this album without even hearing a single track. I always find this exciting, as you never really know what to expect when the laser hits the groove. More often than not if there is a common consensus that an album is...

“A Fearless New World”

published 11/10/2000

ProA groundbreaking album of unique vision

ConsNot for the average listener

Death In Vegas' s first album Dead Elvis was a mixed bag of styles. With music ranging from dance to dub to hard edged rock. The Contino Sessions sees Death in Vegas working around a more focussed sound, a dark psychedelic music closer to the sound of sixties proto-punk bands like MC5 and The...

ProNew. Fresh. Musical. Thought Provoking. Unique.

ConsSub-culture turned pop.

I was introduced to Death by music television. Pictures of victims slowly appeared on an otherwise black screen. Typewriter style text told how they died. “Shot in the head. Age 17.” “Hit and Run. Age 83”. In the background a slow and soulful dirge played. I waited for the...

“I never thought it possible”

published 03/01/2001

ProSome remarkable tracks

ConsOnly one or two harsh tracks

One thing I thought I would always be sure of was that I would never find music by a band with a name like Death In Vegas remotely listenable...but it just goes to show that you should never judge a book by the cover! Actually, the only reason I bought this album was because of one track, Aisha...

“Good - yes. Classic - no.”

published 17/09/2000

ProGood guest vocals.

ConsInstrumental tracks are too basic.

This is not the album many critics say it is but it's definitely worth a look. My only complaint would be that, at heart, the majority of the tracks are pretty basic and hardly cutting-edge stuff, really. It takes the presence of celebrity vocalists Iggy Pop, Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Dot...

Prooriginal

Consnone

DIV's second album marks a move away from the at times oppressive sonic assault towards a more tuneful style. DIV are a heady mix of styles, they incorporate the hypnotic repetition of can, the edgy riffs and experimentalism of the Velvet Underground and even the populist organ licks of northern...
