I don't know why, but when I first heard the name Digitalism, I thought it referred to an underground rapper. At any rate, there are nice danceable tracks like "Jupiter Room", "Zdarlight" (good luck trying to pronounce that) and "The Pulse". And while the cut-up sample of the Cure's "Fire in Cairo" for "Digitalism in Cairo" seems a little lazy, its counterpart "Departure from Cairo" fares much better.
I didn't really care for the opening track "Magnets" either. While I think it's too soon to compare Digitalism to Daft Punk, Idealism is still ideal for fans of house music.
I'm definitely keeping an eye on this group.
But I needed something to work out to that was often wordless. Idealism by Digitalism, along with Sound of Silver by LCD Soundsystem, have been the two mainstays for working out. Digitalism is especially great. I've tried out Daft Punk, Justice, MSTRKRFT, as those seem like the most suggested groups for Digitalism fans, but none of them are on the level of idealism. This is a five star not on a pure musical level, but for its ability to push me every time I work out.

I have to admit, when I first heard Digitalism, I thought they sounded an awful lot like Daft Punk, but I wondered why they were using the same lead singer. Read morePublished on June 23, 2010 by silhouette_of_enchantment
This is one of those albums that you put on as background noise at a party. It all sounds relatively different but I can guarantee no one will ask you what it is. Read morePublished on November 9, 2009 by Media Man
