|Take Me Back To Your House|
|Everybody's all alone Everybody's had enough It's gettin' ugly I'm so tired, so tired, so tired So take me home It's gettin' late in here Come in...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
BlenderWay too much fun. [Oct 2006, p.130]
FilterUncharacteristically lazy beats, chintzy instrumentation, ambiguous "sexy soul" vocalists and third-grade lyrics. [#22, p.96]
For all the colour and flair apparent on Crazy Itch Radio, and despite some genuine gems... a reliance on production and arrangement where some more killer tunes would have worked more memorably is, perhaps, an indication that the Jaxx have, down the years, simply set the bar high.
neocellareOct 10, 2006I love this album, truly, i just can stop to hear it.
SunilVSep 5, 2006Give it time! Are they back to their formal glory? Well, yes and erm, no. You see, in many ways Kish Kash was their most cohesive album and Give it time! Are they back to their formal glory? Well, yes and erm, no. You see, in many ways Kish Kash was their most cohesive album and Remedy their least, but no one will forget the hit singles from Remedy, so it all depends on what you're looking for. I've had this playing on itunes almost continuously for a day and boy does it grow. There's enough innovation (banjo anyone?) and trademark Basement malarky to raise this well above the usual dance dross and the more you listen the more surprises ensue. Cohesive - not every time (and the interludes are just dumb, though the intro is perfect leader stuff). Without a doubt, this album raises the spirits and makes you love dance music all over again.… Expand

JoonLSep 11, 2006I feel the singles collection and Rooty has raised expectations for Basement Jaxx to absurd levels. Crazy Itch Radio isn't a I feel the singles collection and Rooty has raised expectations for Basement Jaxx to absurd levels. Crazy Itch Radio isn't a masterpiece, but it's still a fun listen and interesting considering a vast portion of mainstream dance music nowadays sounds like generic Ministry of Sound remixes. Also, while the album seems to mix too many eclectic influences together, I'd rather have a group trying too many ideas than too few.… Expand
Dec 7, 2010Although this will never be the album that you want to listen to over and over, it will be the one that you'll still find new reasons to loveAlthough this will never be the album that you want to listen to over and over, it will be the one that you'll still find new reasons to love later on. The Jaxx's weakest album, but it's still a joy to listen to.… Expand
DanSep 13, 2006Probably really give this a 7.5. Some tracks are forgettably mediocre, but others are triumphantly swell. It's still above-average Probably really give this a 7.5. Some tracks are forgettably mediocre, but others are triumphantly swell. It's still above-average altogether, but below expectations for what I wanted out of a new Jaxx LP. Definitely check out standout tracks like "Take Me Back To Your House," "Hey You," and "Everybody."… Expand
