I can only think that the reason no one has responded to, in my opinion, Dionysus' quite off-the-mark comment about the title track is that it is so good that no one who owns it has felt the need to defend it. Still relevant, still massive, still original. Deep, dark and twisted though subtle. Perhaps (if you don't have decent headphones) you need to hear Elephant's Parade loud to appreciate it. Absolute dancefloor destruction once it drops. Either that or he's mixed his tracks up. The jazz influence on the b-side is minimal to say the least whereas, despite it's bass-heavy nature, it was jazz what influenced the sick title track bassline.

I was about to write my first negative review of Minilogue, until I got to the flip-side of this release. Birdsong is what saves this entire musical trip, if only because Elephant's Parade is totally uninspiring, and really goes...well....nowhere. Very much unlike a true parade... it makes me scratch my head and want to ask these boys what they were thinking.

However, Birdsong redeems the whole vinyl. This is more Minilogue mastery, with sick sounds and grooves. Personally, I love the jazz influences in this song, and over the last 5 or so releases by these guys, I have discovered just how eclectic their taste in music truly is.

This is not typical "club" music, but some of the deeper and more forward thinking clubs would eat this stuff up... once again, Minilogue makes us envious that we are not them... if only the whole release could live up to their prior standards....
