Boomkat Product Review:
The monstrous success of Roman Flugel and Jorn Elling Wuttke's Alter Ego Project is set to climb to even greater heights on the back of this latest electroid odyssey. Kicking off with the immensely silly synth squelches of the title track, the duo instantly achieve that ideal balance between tongue-in-cheek dancefloor swagger and pop fluency. The bumblebee-in-a-blender melodics of 'Gary' are similarly magnificent, keeping the drums low in the mix in favour of some outlandish filtrations and all-out electro-schlock. Keeping it foolish (as Nathan Barley might have it), two-stepper 'Fuckingham Palace' continues to use bleepy digital synthesis in the least musical fashion imaginable, yet still squeezes some sort of tune out of the exercise. Maintaining the royal theme, 'Queen Anne's Revenge' takes things to more club-friendly extremes, with some ace metallic flange making an unruly mess of the production, and bringing to mind Errorsmith's most comprehensively dismantled material, albeit with a grand inflation of scale and an added element of digital riffing. If Led Zeppelin made techno on Commodore 64s, this is probably what it'd sound like. Ace.
