The 80s in a box from the 00s? Loved this back then and was always pissed off there was no vinyl. It would have been good as a triple with Cyan, Yellow and Magenta discs! Come on, music on vinyl, press it on out!

Groove Armada has given up their melodious downtempo of albums past (the less said about _Lovebox_, the better) in favor of some dub soul and rock funk on _Soundboy Rock_. So when Stush takes the mic for the beatdown "Get Down" or Simon Lord hovers above the indie-tinged "The Things That We Could Share," you’re in for a whole new Groove Armada. But they haven’t lost their knack for melody, either: "What’s Your Version" has a sweetness about it; "Paris" is a semi-Gallic slice of soul; and "From the Rooftops" drifts about quite nicely. If you just want to get your party on, switch over to "The Girls Say," an old-skool acid-electro 80s flashback. But, for my taste, nothing matches the pure pop confection of "Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)," an infectiously catchy track that goes from Gary Numan-style electro to some New Order-style rock dance, all anchored by the unwavering voice of Mutya (late of the Sugarbabes). It’s a pure blast of joy. Welcome back, Groove Armada.

They did it again.
Why again? Because, like The last two studio albums: Goodbye Country(Hello Nightclub) and Lovebox, this record is a well-balanced and complete set of songs. Each one is unique and different. Starting from club house in the 1st cut "Get Down", Groove Armada guys find a way to greet different musical tastes.
Yo can find soft techno in "save my soul" and "lightsonic" to harder in "Drop that thing". We delight a delicious roots song, the one that gives name to the album: "Soundboy Rock".
Of course, everything is not that fantastic in here.
"Song 4 Mutya" looks more to a MTV Fast-food music track than to a song and the CD intro, "Hasta luego Mr. Fab"... why is it there?
To conclude, let us say that GA are still rocking and if you liked last albums you will love this one but, if you are looking for a different thing... just download it.
Be Good
