[Wow] This cd must prove to all of the disbelievers that this band is where its at in the jam circuit right now. This cd takes the electronic-pulse pounding-breakbeat style of "They Missed the Perfume" and put it on songs that they have been playing live for awhile...well know songs! Ive scene over 20 shows and these guys live...well there is nothing to compare them too...they lay down the sickest groove and has anyone seen Barber??!!?? He plays the guitar not with the intention to please but with the intent to make u dislocate ur knees from dancing so hard. And for any Bisco phan...Jigsaw recorded all polished and hyped up with effects is alone worth the price..not to mention Hope, Triumph, The Tunnel and FLOES!!!!!!!!! ...everyone should hear this cd...and love the biscuits...they are unreal...

The Disco Biscuits have finally reached a level where all of their influences are at their prime. It's all here: rock, electronic, ambient and pop, all rolled into a grand statement. I was blown away at how the album starts with "Hope" and then the song comes back at the end of the album to make a complete statement. Wow! The Biscuits are innovators and are pushing rock into places never seen. Standout tracks are "Jigsaw Earth," "Float Like A Butterfly," and "Floes." There is also a cool 10 minute + ambient track that seems to be hidden on track 13. Check it out. This band will be doing stadiums sooner than you think.

The Disco Biscuits have finally reached a new level in their careers. Boombox is a great summary of everything they have ever done. From the electronic beats to the rock improv to the ambient sounds, it's all expressed on this cd. Stand out tracks are "Jigsaw Earth," "Hope," "Float Like A Butterfly" and "Floes." This band just keeps getting bigger and better. They are the future of the music world. Eclectic, yet somehow coming all together by their love of pop songs. The cover art is perhaps the best of the year.

They Missed the Perfume was a huge album; while it used a lot of sounds and ideas that have been floating around for a very long time, it kind of turned the whole electronica movement on its ... for me. A lot of electronica acts take themselves far too seriously, and the Biscuits with TMTP managed to sound cool while maintaining a sense of humor about the whole thing. Spacebirdmatingcall is somewhere between an awesome groove song and Nintendo music (Super Nintendo - Pilotwings - Light Plane). Anyway, the album was a bit of a departure: Altman didn't play a single real drum and Magner went ballistic on the overdubs. I really saw TMTP as a blueprint for where the band was going with their live act (...and the shows I went to at that time seemed to confirm that belief) and with further studio releases. So I waited for Señor Boombox with eager anticipation.
...And it sounds like they're going back in a phishy direction. Granted, Boombox is comprised of songs essential to their awesome stage show, but it doesn't take any of those songs into the sonic territory they explore on stage. And without that, there isn't much left - none of them can really sing and there isn't really an effective melody to be found on this album. Most of Barber's melodies move parallel to whatever chord progression he's written. And I repeat, none of them can really sing. You forgive all this in their live show because they freak out electronica style, and there's a great lightshow, and you've smoked a bunch of weed and you're jumping around like a fool... I digress.

I could not disagree with the last reviewer more. I think that this is the Biscuits best studio effort to date. Once again this album is very different from their other 3. I liked their last cd, They Missed the Perfume, a lot, but like most of their fans I preferred Uncivilized Area. Senor Boombox has more real instrumentation and less computer effects then They Missed.. did. This album is truer to their live presence as well. I've had this cd for over a week now and I can't stop listening to it. I really like how they transformed (one of my favorite live songs) King of the World into Float like a Butterfly (if you bought the cd from Homegrown Music then you got a bonus cd with the studio outtake of KOTW). Again I would like to say that I feel this is the Biscuits best album to date, and their true fans will love it.
p.s I'm not a stoner like the last reviewer mentioned
