I don't know why this album gets dogged...it's friggin' brilliant. Very creative instrumentation, extremely catchy songs, excellent album flow...even the interludes are interesting. Yes it's more commercial than their previous 3 albums (none of which I'm not trying to discredit of course) but doesn't mean this a bad album!

It seems I have this version of the album since it's the lenticular slipcase version. However, the code that's written on the disc is not "IFPI LU81", it's "IFPI KA07". Does anyone have an explanation for this?

What happens when the hottest things in house music reach the point where they're no longer the hottest? Can they still keep relevant? This is the question that haunts Basement Jaxx's _Crazy Itch Radio_. These musical polyglots can still craft cracking tunes, whether the banjo-smacking and strings of "Take Me Back to Your House," the Jewish klezmer horns in "Hey You," or the gospel/Bollywood stomp of "Everybody." But you also get the feeling that they're recycling several of their earlier ideas. The "Hush Boy" recalls "Red Alert" from their debut album _Remedy_, especially with the screeching chorus. "Hush Boy" also has much sillier vocals. Even "Everybody" starts off suspiciously like "Breakaway" from _Rooty_ before it finally moves into its own. Their slower tracks like "Lights Go Down" and "Keep Keep On" show that they're not always about the beat... even if that's where their strength is. So while this album isn't a revelation, it's plenty fun for everyone.
