Editorial Reviews

2010 sophomore album from the Aussie trio, the follow-up to their debut, Dystopia, which launched them into a vortex of global intrigue. Befitting the DIY ethic of their self-owned and operated Siberia label, Midnight Juggernauts again opted to produce the album themselves, with engineer Chris Moore facilitating. An album that veers from percussive, hypnotic grooves to luxuriant jams, via rich Morricone-esque textural diversions, walls of sound, and '70s AM melodic forks, The Crystal Axis is a 50-minute symphony of Synth Rock invention.

....a GREAT followup to that unbelievable debut album.....some branching out with different rhythms and musical directions, but the addictive Juggernauts beat and hypnotic songwriting are a total joy from start to finish to replay...and replay......you really can't categorize their sound (everyone tries, check out the blogs) so whothehell cares, just jump on and blast off........keep it coming, guys, and you gotta do Chicago again on your next tour!!

I happened upon MJ a couple of years ago and was captured by their sounds and vocals. I am not big on follow-up albums by artists in dance/eclectic genres but I was pleasantly surprised by this album. If you are like me you get a taste of each song and then decide which songs you can do without. After many samples I did what I usually don't do....I bought all the songs. They blend and fuse together well. If you are an aged music fan you will find Midnight Juggernauts much like Heaven 17 from the late 70's early 80's, except more refined. This is a must have.

There does not seem to be a genre that describes this album adequately. Midnight Juggernauts have evolved from a band making cleverly produced danceable electronica into something else, something that almost makes one want to take a deep breath and say "progressive". While most of the album is still danceable, these songs have a depth to them that repays repeated listening.

Moreover, this feels like a constructed album rather than a collection of songs. From the eerie opening notes of the opening instrumental "Induco" through the synth-pop of "Vital Signs" and "Lifeblood Flow", the frantic E.L.O.-sounding "Cannibal Freeway" and the pounding "Winds of Fortune", to the strange shimmering finale, "Fade To Red". this album has a cohesiveness. To call it a concept album would be a stretch, but the songs are linked by futuristic themes and electronic effects that would make it a great backdrop for a science fiction movie epic.

I instantly loved "Lifeblood Flow", one of the more "accessible" tracks with a chorus that has a seriously memorable hook. Some of the other tracks took me a bit longer to like, but they are worth the effort. "Lara Versus the Savage Pack" seems to plod along at first, but builds into an amazing instrumental climax that reminded me of nothing so much as ending of "Supper's Ready" by Gesesis. "Virago" has a slightly menacing African backbeat; "Dynasty" on the other hand is pure pop that would not sound out of place on a Bryan Ferry album.

The production is a bit flat and harsh in spots; also the vocals are not superb, the vocalist is no Freddie Mercury. I give it 4.6 stars, rounded up to 5.
