Editorial Reviews

Continuing in the darkly epic vein of 1999’s The Contino Sessions, Death In Vegas’s Scorpio Rising layers psychedelic fuzz and electronic scenery over slow-burning dance-rock. DIV’s DJ duo Richard Fearless and Tim Holmes veer madly between new wave revivalism ("Hands Around My Throat") and straight-up rock remakes ("So You Say You Lost Your Baby"), with shoegazer clamor and goth treacle in the crawlspaces. Like Sessions, the record features high-profile guest vocalists; this time, Oasis’s Liam Gallagher, Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval and former Jam frontman Paul Weller are on hand to juice up the record’s pop-dance hybrid appeal. Gallagher has the most success, putting his scruffy rock god pose to good use on the intensely catchy title track. There’s nothing here that significantly changes the band’s formula, but Scorpio Rising stays interesting and relevant with a jumble of high drama and chaotic influences. --Matthew Cooke

3.0 out of 5 stars identity crisis September 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
i guess Death In Vegas have a few famous pals and these pals were gracious enough to lend their vocals to some of these songs. the basic mood here is dark rock music with a danceable edge. or perhaps the other way around. but there's alot of shifts in moods and atmosphere. the opening track kinda reminds me of some of those 4AD bands like Swallow or maybe Ultra Vivid Scene, with it's distorted bass and cool breathy female background vocals. a pretty good way to start the record. but as the album continues, there seems to be a lack of focus. this record doesn't really grab me as a whole; even though there are some good songs on it. one feeling i get is that i am never really getting to know Death In Vegas for who they are. it's like all their songs were specifically written for their special guests. the mellow acoustic numbers go to Hope Sandoval, the electro groove numbers go to the more throaty singers, etc. it seems a little too safe and in the box. but like i said, there are some nice moments. Scorpio Rising is a fairly enjoyable album, just not an essential one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss October 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd because it has the song "Girls" which was used in the film "Lost In Translation". I found that track to be a lovely mix of soothing voices and modern rock sounds. The rest of the album has moments that are just as good if not better, but it also has moments that don't work well. The collaboration with Liam Gallagher on the title track is cool as well as tracks 6 and 10 which feature a very nice female vocalist who you can't really comprehend lyrically. The opening track "Leather" is an upbeat intro and gets the album going on an engaging start. Track 3 "Hands Around My Throat" kind of ruins it for me though. Not much to that one. Unfortunately, the others I haven't mentioned also fall into that category which makes this a 50% listenable experience. I don't know that I could truly reccommend this unless you blow money on music frequently. Nothing amazing on this disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great (dare I say it) chill-out music... April 15, 2006
By Nicky P
Format:Audio CD
Death In Vegas' "Scorpio Rising" is a delicious mix of slow burning rock, ice cold electro and hippy mantras. Some would be familiar with "Girls", a slow burning rock fuzz track with dreamy vocals (included in the Lost in Translation OST), others would know the Liam Gallagher - Scorpio Rising track (not to dissimilar with Liam's previous collaborations with the Chemical Brothers) - so so catchy. Others would know the bitter icy track of "Hands Around My Throat" - where Death in Vegas use the electroclash sounds to brilliant effect (my favourite track).

Death in Vegas step in and out of various musical styles with the slightest of ease throughout Scorpio Rising. This is the sort of CD that is brilliant for dinner parties and such. Cool, modern and sexy.

One small blip on the CD is the misjudged "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" with Paul Weller - a out of place rock tune which just grates against the smoothness of the rest of the CD.

Overall - if you like (dare I say it) "chill-out" music - then you will probably like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars BAM. a new death in vegas album. June 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
yes, it's like an instrumental enema. while you listen you may think, "what kind of music is this?" well it's DEATH IN VEGAS. this new album continues slithering in the same direction as its predecessor, the Contino Sessions. this is talent perverted at its best- and the songs vary dramatically, as do the guest vocalists. as usual, it may be hard to listen to at first for most people, but it will sink in.. and eventually overpower you. play it in the background of a late night party.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Death Are back October 16, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This latest Album from Death In Vegas has to be there greatest work yet. The title track Scorpio Rising with Liam Gallagher supplying the vocals has to be the pick of the bunch. This one track is worth the price of the album, however you shouldn't think this album is a one hit wonder all the other tracks are excellent. They will reach out and tenderly rap themselves around your ear drums, until you find yourself play the album over and over again. Well I did away, just buy the album and you will find out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death in Vegas still alive September 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
That this album still sounds fresh is testimony to it's quality. Do yourself a favour, if you don't have it - buy it just to hear Liam Gallagher's snarl. One of my favourite records and an essential in my view

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! April 26, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Many people will not like this CD because they don't get Death In Vegas' style. They're very much into giving their listeners something new with every track. Girls, Hands around my throat, Scorpio Rising, 23 Lies all sound different. It's insane how good they are! Get this album for something original and refreshing.
