Definetly a good one;>

Far from home is something smiley track, ideal for happy days.
you gotta want me is like a late 90s disco hit. and its great^^
high school is anothet electroclash track, good one too.
pleasure from bass is in my opinion like the dave clarke's just ride (rap, hard bassline, snares). not as good as that was, and is a bit out of the album, but its still good.
pleasure from the bass is a rather exhibicionist and minimal stuff. with some acid^^
down in it... well, NiN, yes. rather depressed one. very good, but its a bit too depressed for this one, i think. or just tiga is far more mature, than you think from far from home.
ballad of sexor is a slow electro one. and it has great sounds^^
good as gold is my favorite. its speed is good, the bass is good, the vocal is excellent, everything works just as it would be. perfect.
speed of sexor reprise: a bit faster than far from home. this version is also good^^
burning down the house is i think a little weaker than the others. its not bad, it has some very good samples, but not that great at all.
3 weaks: ah yeah, without your beloved one... not as depressed and good like down in it, but still a good one
3 brothers: very good track, i like it very much.
sad sad sad: a slow electronic one... sad, but beautyful.

well, 4.5 points of 5. well, burning down the house is not the only reasen, for not being 5/5... the long silences in the last track could be explained, why they are there because of some artistic reasons (which i do understand)... but when you like the album that much, that you listen to it all afternoon (not happend with me for a long time^^), its simple annoying. its a really good album^^

Tiga's long awaited debut. Besides the well-known You Gonna Want Me, Louder Than A Bomb and Pleasure From The Bass, there is little on offer here. In particular, I enjoyed 3 Weeks, which features an engaging distorted electro sample, and I expect a single with remixes of this track. Definitely one of the best in the album. Other noteworthy tracks are High School, Good As Gold, (Far From) Home (The Speed Of Sexor Reprise) and Sir Sir Sir. One of the weaknesses of this album is that all the versions are short and some tracks, particularly the new ones, should have been extended. Nevertheless a good collective effort by Tiga, but could have been better.
