Album Review
Reviewed 2003-02-18 
cd1: a nice catchy bunch electronic tunes that you'll probably hear on car commercials sometime soon. these guys' videos were heavily played during resfest 2002. all tracks are pretty good - my favorites are #3, #5, #7.
1 - mysterious, haunting, like a burglar walking around a house
2 - cheerful and whimsical. lots of twinkly noises.
3 - a loungey, rainy-day track with sweet and sexy female vocals (think portishead)
4 - pretty & melodic. not that outstanding.
5 - super catchy and danceable with sad male vocals
6 - electic bunch of vocals, robot noises, etc
7 - long, dramatic, and darker track that turns funky towards the middle
8 - poppy song w/ nice male vocals
9 - downtempo beat overlaid with jazzy saxophones and piano
10 - starts cute then gets minimal but soulful

cd2: remixes of two of the tracks on cd1. all four remixes are pretty well-done and definitely much more club-friendly than the original tracks. club DJs would like these! except for #1, most of the vocals have been stripped.
