If you want to like LCD Soundsystem but find Murphy too drab/tryhard/longwinded, Zonoscope is a record for you. If you legitimately like Cut Copy, this is a record for you. If you want to hear music that sounds like the album's cover, this record is for you. You can blast this one from the tops of skyscrapers when the ice caps finally melt and flood the world, and the apocalypse will be alright.
"Zonoscope" (11 tracks; 61 min.) is not another "great leap forward", but instead a confirmation of all the good things we heard on "In Ghost Colours". The album starts off somewhat tentatively with "Need You Know", which is followed by a nice "Take Me Over" that reminds me somehow at times of another Australian band's (Men At Work) "Down Under" single. Could it be a subtle homage? The album now is firing on all cylinders. "Blink and You'll Miss a Revolution" is an irresistible dance-along, just perfect from start to finish with a strong melody that keeps going and going, and you just don't want the song to ever end, THE highlight of the album for me personally. A short instrumental after that ("Strange Nostalgia For the Future") ends the first half of the album. The second half kicks off with another great tune "This Is All We've Got". "Alisa" continues the good vibes. "Hanging Onto Every Heartbeat" is the only pensive tune on the album, just to catch your breath before the last 2 tunes, "Corner of the Sky", another dance-romp, which set us up for the album closer, the 15 min.Read more ›
I was instantly put in another place, one far away from the New England blizzard where my car was idling. "Blink & You'll Miss A Revolution" was familiar in that old time feel though it commanded my attention; a sound which is fresh, unheard of before... Then the song was over....
The station DJ was a novice, he made no attempt to explain the names of any artist he played during his set break. In fact, he did not say much at all. My iphone "Shazam" app didn't want to cooperate either. The radio station had a web page but no listed phone number or e-mail address. Just a contact form, you know the type; the form which you never get a response from.
Through some miracle of fate and fortune, I eventually traced the song back to the artist because a few random lyrics popped into my head day's later. I love Google & I love this album!

Album arrived in great condition. This is another great album from cut copy. The sound ISNA little more mellow than in ghost colors, nothing as euphoric as hearts on fire.Published 18 months ago by Michael P. Krajewski
