Editorial Reviews

2013 release from French IDM artist Jackson Fourgeaud AKA Jackson & His Computerband. When Jackson emerged from the lingering Disco after-smoke of the 'French Touch' scene that nurtured Daft Punk and Phoenix amongst others, Paris and the rest of the world were changing. Slowly and methodically, strands of music were moving from warehouse raves into the global mainstream and at the time of his debut Smash, in 2005, he and his Computer Band embodied the bleeding edge of this transition.

Just when it seemed that Jackson Fourgeaud was destined to fade into history as a one-album wonder with his excellent 2005 release Smash he returns from seemingly nowhere once again with his "Computer Band". While I was hoping for a modern take on Smash's glitchy/fragmented formula what is delivered with Glow is in actuality very different. While I don't fault an artist for not wanting to be tied to a specific style or genre the risk Jackson has taken on this new release has him almost completely overhauling any past remnants of his earlier works. I think his new "sound" works, but during the course of the album the results vary greatly in both tone and quality.

Unfortunately what is keeping me from giving this a higher recommendation is the poor songwriting that mars much of the album, particularly during the first half, where there are some questionable attempts at quirky pop songs. I don't know what to make out of the laughable accent/pronunciation on the vocals to "Dead Living Things", the singing is weird and kills the mood of the piece (whatever it might have been aiming for). "GI Jane" is a weak hybrid of Rock and Electronic music, never seeming to want to commit to one style or the other, making for a muddled musical environment for the song to exist in. ("Blood Bust" tries the same blend with marginally better results.) "Memory" is probably the worst offender, as I could not find anything memorable about it. The opener "Blow" is a mess.

Glow begins to redeem itself in the second half. Here Jackson flaunts his talents with more engaging instrumental passages that work as dance music.

Love the sound, but it's a jumbled mess.

It's not mixed in mind for audio systems with enhanced bass. Completely washes my system over in bass on a few tracks. I really like "Seal," "Arp #1," and "Billy." I love the fundamental sounds and the extravagant aggression of Jackson's style, but the album doesn't feel like it has cohesion or proper structure. I couldn't fully get into it.

The other reviewer was way too analytical, at least in my humble opinion, as this album is incredible from start to finish. Another fine Warp vinyl.
