    This is extremely bad, a shame for Basement Jaxx. Unless you like cheesiness and cliche r'n'b-tracks/influences, there isn't much here for you...

    What happened. Annoying, annoying singers. Lost the plot.

    A cacophony of jumbled rhythms, r&b ripoffs and ANNOYING vocals! Some of the songs have this build-up like you're thinking, "It's gonna kick in any minute now and really kick ass"! but it never happens. Very anti-climactic as I really love the rest of The Basement Jaxx work.

  1. Crazy Itch Radio cements Basement Jaxx reputation as Britain's gold-standard dance duo.
  2. 'Crazy Itch Radio' bumbles along with mid-paced beats and, it seems, too many disparate influences to really hold together.

    Their best album since... Remedy. [Sep 2006, p.131]
