Basement Jaxx's albums have always suffered from the "singles 'n' stuff" phenomena (also known as "killer 'n' filler." For every marvelous track, there's one that makes you reflexively reach for the fast forward button. But on their 5th album, _Scars_, I think they've finally broken the curse. It holds together remarkably well as a cohesive work, and while there are weaker tracks, there's nothing that makes you wonder who cut the Jaxx boys' dope with chalk. Certainly, they lean more towards the slower side of things, but this helps them show their more sensitive side. "Stay Close" might be wan R'n'B, but the French vocals of "Distractionz" are the thing of pure romance. The guest vocalists are of particular note here: Santigold juts her hip out in "Saga" and Sam Sparro lends a high-energy pop vibe to "Feelings Gone." Even Yoko Ono's hippie freakout on "Day of the Sunflowers (We March On)" has its peculiar charm. If you just want the danceable singles, "Raindrops" leads the way. But my money is on country music-inflected "A Possibility" (with the inimitable BJ Cole) or the surprise hit, the gentle and quietly gorgeous "My Turn." Well done, boys: these are scars worth showing off.

Well it's been a while. From RED ALERT to ROMEO to RIGHT HERE'S THE SPOT to RUN 4 COVER now to RAINDROPS, their latest album will blow you away, whether your a hip hop hipster, house junkie, pop diva, or alternative freak, this album brings many new things to the music industry. Anyone who has been a fan of Basement Jaxx form the beginning knows them to be more Hip Hop/House oriented. But with this latest installment we find that they have broadened their scope. Things are gained and things are lost. For example, in this album are the traditional hip hop/house tracks but with new songs mixing pop, alternative, and world. You get some surprising guest artists that will blow you away. You lose in this album the famous interludes, but you really don't mind it. The album art has to the most unique, strange, yet, truly descriptive of the album: a collaboration. The two new singles from this album are RAINDROPS and FEELINGS GONE. RAINDROPS is the first song ever to have a member of Basement Jaxx sing lead vocals and it is amazing and so is the music video. FEELINGS GONE however is a more pop directed song whose video is a shame. This album could go down as their best if not second to Rooty.
