3.0 out of 5 stars Looking, looking November 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
No band ever completely dies. Whenever a band breaks up or a frontman expires, you can count on at least one new band to rise from the ashes a year or so later.

So when Death from Above 1979 broke up awhile ago, it was only inevitable that something like MSTRKRFT would show up sooner or later. I have no idea what the name means, but I know what their debut "The Looks" is full of -- Daft Punk-style dance music, as done by robots.

It opens with the funky, blippy rhythms of "Work on You," which slithers around computerized beats and solid drum machines. But what makes it stand out is the robotic voice repeating, "I'm gonna make you mine... I'm gonna make you mine..." It's a bit like being ravished by HAL.

That same sound continues in the discoey and rather repetitive "Easy Love." Fortunately the sound changes dramatically with "She's Good For Business," with the girl's vocals and the hard beats, followed by the fuzz-rocky "Paris."

The beat continues through the rather repetitive "Looks," which is a good dancepunky song, but is dwarfed by the vaguely hip-hoppish "Street Justice." This short album rounds off with the swirling beats of "Bodywork," and the kitschy-futuristic "Neon Knights."

If MSTRKRFT has a flaw, it's a simple one -- all the songs follow the same formula, and they rarely stray from it. After a little while, I started to wish that they would try out something different, just to vary their sound a little.

But I have to admit, they have a knack with some dancey beats. There's a retro dance flavour to their music, and the rigid confines and slightly nuts feeling add to its appeal. And they do vary the formula a little, with swirly beats and retro-disco experimentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Looks July 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I must say, this album made me get up, throw multiple lightswitch raves, and then sit back down satisfied. Many say that it doesn't have enough to give. To some it doesn't, but I find it incredibly satisfying. If you are a Death From Above 1979 fan or just a fan of Jeese Keelers work, then I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! August 7, 2006
By JBizzle
Format:Audio CD
I'd heard of these guys before & had no idea they had an entire album out. I happened upon this gem by accident & let me just say WOW, I'm impressed. Other people are comparing these guys to the next Daft Punk & to be fare I suppose there might be a slight likeness to their music, but as a whole these guys have a sound all their own. As far as Daft Punk is concerned they haven't made any descent music since their 1st album(ya, I'm one of those guys that liked "Homework" better)and have been given far more credit than is deserved. There are 8 full length (meaning over 3/4 minutes, "THANK YOU!!!")tracks here, my favorites are #1 "Work On You" & #8 "Neon Knights", all are good though & anyone'll make your fanny shake. Any fan of electro house will totally dig this album, pure quality stuff!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This new Album from MSTRKRFT is fantastic. Work on you is super and easy love just blew me away, I got it as a free download and have waited eagerly for the album. They are a fine successor of Daft Punk and I highly recommend this.
