After two superlative albums, all eyes were on Modeselektor for MONKEYTOWN, their first album on their own label. And the smooth, melodic "Blue Clouds" doesn't disappoint, and even if Busdriver and Antipop Consortium don't deliver with the same energy of TTC, on"Pretentious Friends" and "Humanized" respectively, they still deliver crunk flavor. Thom Yorke reappears on the quick, crisp breaks of "Shipwreck" and in more fragmented form on "This." "Evil Twin" and "German Clap" get back to the deep electro we've come to expect. "Berlin" gets shinier, with lyrics from Miss Platnum, but despite all these positive elements, somehow this album doesn't show as much personality as their previous ones. Nonetheless, "Green Light Go" brings some of that emotional energy back to bear, and the Zulu chant on "War Cry" gives a slight hint of their humor. Still strong, though not quite on par with their other work.
