I haven't really weighed on Crystal Castles' new album yet. After hitting a listening party a few weeks back, then grabbing the inevitably subsequent leak, it's safe to say that it's been one of the most played and replayed discs in my beastly repertoire as of late. Yep, the noisy, punk, thrashy, radtastically awesome duo are back and better than ever.
Without changing a ton since their last offering, the Ontario pair of Ethan and Alice have found little nuances to up their game. For instance: Suffocation...a bit lighter and wait, is that Ms. Glass actually singing in lullabic tones? Never fear though...the same raging and rompish beats and bangs are generously dispersed throughout the album.
Baptism has quickly become a fan favorite, for it's heart attack-inducing synths. Buddy boy Anthony likened the chorus arrangement and rises to.........Justin Timberlake's My Love. To be honest, I hear what he's referring to, and think that the comparison is both comical yet true. (You can read more of his initial analysis here.)
Aside from JT, cool dudes The Hood Internet decided that maybe a different popstar would work better with the christening tune from CC. Grab your Rihanna-ic fix below. It's pretty damn good.
