Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the long-awaited sophomore album from the Electronic/Dance duo feature Jesse Keeler (formerly of Death From Above 1979) and Al-P. Since their 2007 debut album, The Looks, the duo have been busy remixing projects for other artists while piecing Fist Of God together. The duo's biggest influence on Fist Of God is legendary House producer Armand Van Helden, who advised them throughout the recording of the album.

Electronic duo MSTRKRFT's sophomore CD "Fist of God" features guests like Ghostface Killah, Lil Mo, N.O.R.E, and John Legend, the latter whose presence drew my attention to the disc.

They fall into the same musical bracket at Prodigy, Justice and Daft Punk, and the album features club anthems with static-sounding fuzzy and buzzing riffs. Opening cut "It aint love" featuring Lil Mo is one of such. "1000 cigarettes" is a head-pummeling Prodigy-style electro instrumental, which appears again later in the disc featuring rapping by Freeway.

The fuzzy "Bounce" does as its title says and features N.O.R.E. and Isis. "So deep" is a hypnotic Techno-ish gem featuring the soulful vocals of Jahmal, who appears again on "Breakaway" which sounds like some Chicago House music classic. The fuzzy Rock-tinged "Click click" features rapping by E40, while the atonal "Word up" features an expletive spitting Ghostface Killah.

There are instrumentals like "Vuvuvu", and the swirling "Fist of God", but my favourite is the more sublime piano-sprinkled "Heartbreaker" with a (fitting) languid performance by John Legend. It is different from everything else on the album, more like what one would find on a Röyksopp or even David Guetta album.

Guaranteed to keep you up all night dancing!

Let me start by saying I am an avid music listener, DJ, and musician/producer. This is a very good album and flows well. The production on this album is really flawless and drives a consistent chrome-like sheen through the whole record. It features some interesting collaborations in a dance record that makes for some good fun and some words to hum on your way to work... or to the dance floor. Stand out tracks are Click Click, Word Up, and Break Away, but honestly there are no bad songs here. Everything is worth listening to and there are no fillers. If you liked The Looks this album has large parallels but takes everything to the next level. But also, just a great album in general. If you like being boring and only listening to music that suits your current social identity, then skip this album.

Man this album is a bitter pill. When MSTRKRFT's first album came out, Justice had not yet taken their throne as the kings of electrohouse, and this band looked to ride the crest of a new wave in electronic music, then they waited forever to release a new album, and the scene passed them by. Ed Banger records came to fruition and quickly stole the thunder these two had started, making Paris the new hot spot for hard electronic music. I saw MSTRKRFT on their Fist of God tour recently, and they played a banging set of electro, house and even rock against a backdrop of flickering television sets that was truly mesmerizing. However, the album of the same name wreaks of 2006, with tired synth sounds, lame guest vocals, and not enough hooks to ground a memorable dance album. I hope the next time around these guys come with something more original to set themselves apart from the hundreds of clones now claiming the same sound.

This is a straight up awesome album. Like MSTRKRFT says, they don't know what kind of dance music they make anymore, they just make what they like and it shows. The album is packed with energy but it's the nuance that make this album great. FoG sounded good the first time I heard it and rapidly became a favorite with subsequent listens.

The Amazon track previews mostly speak for themselves but I do want to point out that Vuvuvu in particular isn't done justice with a 30s preview... This track is a Jam that really develops.

Check out this album, but more importantly check them out live; they really put on great shows.

Well the canadian duo lost something here compared to their first album. I was never a fan of death from above but really was impressed with THE LOOKS album. The fist , is just that a 'Fist' full of hard over the top messy dance beats. On one hand the experiments of driving complex dance electronics collaged can work, but not for a whole album. what happened to that unique Canadian sound that emanated through the first album. Now they sound more like Chromeo and the presets and too many others. The first track is so disparately trying to be commercial a la Britney Spears and I am disappointed. The Looks album was so tight and beautifully - the song Easy love bounced perfectly.

MSTRKRFT tears it up. This hard hitting album is a great blend between techno, dubsteb and rock. You'll dig it
