Editorial Reviews

Robots In Disguise’ self-titled debut album was released in 2004 to critical acclaim. The Robots, members Sue Denim and Dee Plume, are back with their DIY attitude, while adding a dance floor factor.

Produced by Chris Corner of the Sneaker Pimps, the second album has a broader appeal, with songs that are as refreshing as they are dance floor oriented – as evidenced by their intergalactic singles like "The DJ’s Got A Gun," and "Mirror Rorrim," or their daring cover of The Kinks’ "You Really Got Me."

Don't let the drum machine fool you. RID are an indie band, who sometimes use lots of synths, and sometimes use guitars. They are also clever and VERY wry. The vocal hook from the first track "The DJ's got a Gun", a sarcastic swipe at the club scene, is a vocoded "everybody get your hands in the air and get down on the floor." If you don't find that funny, you probably won't "get" RID. I prefer their previous album, which is more musically sparse with heavy-handed bass, to this album, which is more 'neo-new-wave', but this is still a good CD. Favorite Tracks: "Turn it Up" (more like their first CD) and "The DJ's Got a Gun".

Wasn't sure about R.I.D to begin with, mainly because they sound a bit like Shampoo at times, but this album's a grower.

Best of their 3 CDs in my opinion, Turn it Up and DJ's got a Gun are the stand out tracks for me.

If you like 80's synth pop, and modern takes on the genre (Chromeo, Har Mar etc ..), you'll love this.
