I have been in debate as to pick this album up for quite a while now. Its seems that previous albums by !!! divide reviewers into two groups; Its either overrated yet somewhat fun, or you can dance to it so therefore its good. Im not a 'dancer', and I don't buy mediocre albums, but then again, with record sales like they are getting lately, and the cool album art of 'Myth Takes', I was inavoidably drawn in.

First listen I was hooked. There is so much stuff going on in this album that I immediately started it over. I began to wonder where the hell the negative reviews were coming from. I delayed reviewing this because I thought that maybe this album wasn't as good as my first impression had led me to believe. Again, I was wrong. About twenty listens later, this album has the same freshness and creative attraction that it did on listen number one.

This album is damn good.. and I finally realized why. Like my favorites, Pink Floyd, !!! are easily capable of cramming experimentaion, dense atmosphere, and down-right wierdness all into one album, while still being able to keep a keen ear open to pop sensibilities. You will rarely find an album this fun, yet challenging at the same time. From disco, to trip-hop, there is definately something for every listener in 'Myth Takes'; and yet with all its pop and cheese, I am still delightfully able to find something new with each listen. Head to head with Pain of Salvation's 'Scarsick' for the best album of the year so far.

This is the best album to come out in 2007.

This is stuff that almost belongs more in a night club on a Saturday night. It's a near perfect combination of live performance and electronic enhancement. But the effects don't overshadow the songs, which feature some of the most infectious vibes and killer hooks of the year.

The best way to listen to this album is from beginning to end in order. The tracks are sequenced to be a microcosm of a party - starting with ice-breaking stuff that works into a vibe getting more intense as the album works in, then winds down on the last 2 songs.

01 Myth Takes
The title track is actually the worst song on the record. It's an abtractionalist retro experiment that should have probably been a bonus track. Unfortunate choice.

02 All My Heroes are Wierdos
Shades of XTC and Joy Division - Fast raucus with several new-wavy elements. Better.

03 Must be the Moon
Takes right off with a thudding disco beat at about 120 BPM. The bass line is killer.

04 A A New Name
Another 120 BPM rocker. Best verse hook on the record with the bass and the guitar trading hits on every 3rd beat.

05 Heart of Hearts
Keeps the vibe going. The backing female vocals make bring it a little to close to KMFDM for me. Still very danceable.

06 Sweet Life
The most original track on the record, it takes a little getting used to - maybe a little overwrought for me personally. Lots of changes. Very progressive.

07 Yadnus
Has a "Personal Jesus" 3/4 beat, the song is 5:10 long and just keeps building to release over that time. Use it to fire up a locker room before a big game.

merriam-webster's new collegiate dictionary effectively defines the noun "dance" as follows: "a series of rhythmic and patterned bodily movements usually performed to music".

this doesn't even come close to the near-epileptic contortional fit that seized me about one and a half minutes into my first listen of "myth takes".

"louden up now" and earlier releases were great, in their own less-than-tethered way, but this album is a flashpaper-bright journey into a pulsating neon psychosis of dancing disco rollergirls, exploding sunsets and fields of swaying skyscrapers. if you understand that last phrase on even the most cursory level then you owe it to yourself and your future seeds to buy this album and play it until it wears out and you have to buy another copy.

what do you like? epic classic rock? drunken disco? maybe some stuck-in-my-head-like-gum-on-my-shoe pop tunes? some tribal dancefloor napalm? we can keep going, but it's all here...

for an added trip, try playing the album while checking their website [...] (which seems to have been designed by a cryogenically frozen timothy leary)while listening to the record...if you think you can handle it.

don't make a mistake, jump on "myth takes".

I just saw !!! in concert last weekend (more on that later), and have been going through a !!! reappreciation phase lately.

"Myth Takes" (10 tracks; 48 min.) is the band's 3rd album, and starts off with the nervous title track, but soon thereafter the album finds its groove with tracks like "Must Be the Moon" and, even better, the 6 min. "Heart of Hearts", which is a full-blown dance track, foreshadowing the sound on the "Thr!!!er" album. "Yadnus" is a stomping track, with great underlying drums. The 8 min. epic "Bend Over Beethoven" is yet another example of how the band's sound is evolving away from its earlier punk/rock-ish sound more into a groove based-jam. "Break In Case Of Anything" is the exclamation point (pun intended) on the album. In all, this is !!!'s second best album for me (after "Thr!!!er").

Last weekend at the FYF in Los Angeles, !!! put on an amazing 50 min. set in which they played mostly songs from "Thr!!!er" but thankfully also a couple from "Myth Takes" ("Yadnus" and "Must Be the Moon"). I can honestly say that !!!'s set was by far THE highlight of the festival for me. They are one of the top live acts out there today as far as I'm concerned. Meanwhile, "Myth Takes" is a fine album, and a must-have for any !!! fan.
