"Ich R U" is my Song of the Year 2012. Catchy as all get out, fits into and out of so many genres.sub-genres.
"What You Want", "XTC" and "Missile" are just exactly what people expect from BN, yet still impress. "Merlin" and "Reality" move into longer, deep waters wonderfully. "Touch It" shows that Alex, even with all the acclaim he's attained, is still willing to wear his Daft Punk fandom on his sleeve (and the record sleeve too). "Rocky 2" and "Circus Full of Clowns" could be better, and the Snoop Dogg track is easily the weakest on the album, but these little blips do nothing to blunt the brilliance of the rest of the album. As raw, straightforward, "in-your-face" techno as the album might appear at first blush, there are a great number of little touches and influences of other types and styles lurking beautifully under the surface, making Out of the Black a truly rewarding experience for the intent, knowledgeable listener, as well as the kids who just want to rock the party, which it will most certainly do.
Own it electronic/techno/rave/acid house fans.
"Rocky 2" A bit too busy for me. Good thing it's a short song.
"Circus Full of Clowns" featuring Gizzle. This song is growing on me, but I still think it's not necessary to be on this album.
"Got It" featuring Snoop Dogg. The track makes no sense, the background music is borderline annoying, and it is totally unrelated to the rest of the album. The only smart move was to put it at the end.
On the flip side, "Stop" is pure genius. Daft Punk must be very proud.
"Out of the Black" is an absolute gem. The album, as are all of Boys Noize's, is heavily influenced by the trademark Ed Banger/French style of electronic music, think Justice's "Cross," but with his own twist.
Every track is as raw, and hard-edged as the last, a truly fantastic addition to the Boys Noize repertoire.
If you are on the fence about whether to buy the album check out: XTC, Rocky 2, and Stop.
"Stop" - My favorite track, is a clear homage to Daft Punk's "Homework" (by far their best album), more specifically "Rollin' and Scratchin'" and is one of the absolute hardest techno songs to date. Put this song on your headphones, turn the volume up, and try to stay still.
"Rocky 2" - Sounds like a computer generated metal band, with bursts of raw noise, and twisted computer vocals over top. This track could either cause you to rave or start a mosh pit in your living room.
"XTC" - The first single off the album is equal parts funky and equal parts a club banger in every sense. Another comparable track is "Oi Oi Oi's" opener "& Down"
Keep in mind this is a list of my favorite three tracks from the album, if I were to say what I like about each track I might end up producing a novel.You need this album in your collection, so do your ears the pleasure of checking this album out.

Boys Noize has done it again. If your a fan you already have it and have grown to know the quality that comes from BNR releases. This one does not disappoint. Read morePublished on October 21, 2012 by The D
