Editorial Reviews

Limited two CD edition includes bonus enhanced disc that features seven additional audio tracks and two enhanced videos. Australian pressing of the 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.

I'm not much good at writing reviews, but feel I have to put in my two cents, just to counter the other unfairly harsh "review" here. "Crystal Axis" isn't "Dystopia", that's true, but it's hard to imagine not finding something to love on the new one if you loved the first. Much of the overt electro of Dystopia has been replaced with a lush, AM radio, 70's psych pop flavor. But, it's not like Dystopia was a 4/4 technoid, dance floor workout; there was a big Electric Light Orchestra influence going on.... and it's still there, just a bit subdued. And, even though there's a stronger pop/rock vibe going on, "Crystal Axis" is still coated with synths and electronic production. There's a large handful of perfect, beautiful pop moments on here, and though I've only been able to give it a couple of listens right now, it's by far one of my favorite albums of the year so far. Check out the new vids on youtube if you're worried.... and ignore the one-star review that's here.

Boy did it take some time for me to warm up to the latest Midnight Juggernauts album, but I'm glad I've made myself deal with it. Repeated listens reveal it to be a smoothly flowing, smoldering album with strong songwriting. While their debut, Dystopia, is about half good with the good songs being outright amazing, The Crystal Axis is good throughout, but with little in the way of standout tracks. Sure the dance power is gone, but there are plenty of other bands still doing that well if you need your fix. There aren't, however, a lot of bands making nightmarish new wave and prog flavored journeys into the psychedelic future. Astute listeners will hear ELO, Pink Floyd, and Billy Thorpe filtered through contemporary electropop. It's not perfect. Lyrics are nicked from the Bible and prayer, giving it a corny heaviness. Production is a bit flat. Aside from those minor complaints, the Crystal Axis is very worthwhile If you have the attention span and time.

Shipped from afar, took a while to get here, but well worth the wait. This CD is different than the last. I do not think it is bad, in fact is very refreshing to see another style of work from them. I cannot wait for more from Midnight Juggernauts. I love this!

NOOOOOOOO! This is nothing like Dystopia :-< and I listened twice. Do NOT buy this if you are expecting good Electronica.
