ALBUM REVIEWS : CRYSTAL CASTLES- CRYSTAL CASTLES
Some years ago I had problems finding decent releases and now I have problems to check 'em all out, writing about 'em and raving about 'em but so the kid in me stays satisfied I guess. 2010 also wellcomes the new album by the Canadian electronic popduo Crystal Castles. Ethan Kath and Alice Glass are still using the same ingredients. Harsh beats, loud distortions, samples taken from old Atari-games and poppy melodies. In comparision with their previous one is "Crystal Castles" a bit of a let down as it misses the catchy melodies from ...ahum that other album called "Crystal Castles". Will they do like Peter Gabriel and name all their albums the same? I hate such things as automatically in a decade later, our conversations will go like "yeah that album from 2008 was better than the one from 2010".... Will Crystal Castles still matter a decade later? I think so...
