This is a weird album. I was into Electroclash for a while, back when it had it's fifteen minutes of fame in the UK, and I came across this album when I read a review for it in Mixmag (not one of the best music mags out there. It's probably the Rolling Stone of electronic music (in my opinion), which means most of its content is ads and shit. It's entertainment, go figure). Anyway, I must have listened to this album from start to finish a number of times, and I'm still not sure whether I love it or hate it. It has its moments, and most of the tracks have a catchy hook or two (and lyrics on some), which makes them worth listening to (at least once if at all). If I can say that I love any of the tracks on this album, the first three stand out. The rest of the album isn't as great. I'd say if you like Electroclash, and you're looking for something that's a bit out there, pick this up. Otherwise, it's probably nothing you should put on your "must have" list.

I am not a great fan of Dj Gigolo but Crossover seem to prove there's more to trash than the trash itself. Interesting fact about Crossover is they don't generally fit in with Gigolo's mumbo-jumbo trash. The reasons lay in their sense of melody rather than pure jerking out over synthetics most other Gigolos practise as the label's trademark.

Crossover's obvious influences come from the 'Clockwork Orange' - with 'Phostographt' headlining as one of the most bizarre language plays in music. Rap that isn't rap ('Lucida Obskura' or 'The Great Katanza') heading towards 'gangsta' twisted some steps further. The voice is familiar with Miss Kittin only less deadpan, more pleasant and mature.

Crossover are two wicked 'kids' in their early thirties playing with 'fairy tales' twisting them into perverse reflections ('Lady Dragon Slayer' and bouncing 'Extensive Care'). 'Kobe' seems like a dark humourous strip-off of 'Love Is In the Air'. A deserved listening.
