    It is the perfect hybrid of dub,rock,electro, punk. . . oh man it is a very special cd indeed. Genre bending. You must give in to the "theme" of Devin Dazzle to fully appreciate. Excellent concept album.

    This album plays like an excellent mix disc with great flow between tracks and a nice variety amongst the guest vocalists and the different styles incorporated here (electroclash, Prince-like R&B, etc.). What a party!

  1. A technicolor blast that pairs hooky guitar and keyboard riffs with plenty of four on the floor beats and sing-along vocals.
  2. Half of the album sounds phoned-in and flat.
  3. Hyper-concept pseudo-narratives aside, Devin Dazzle is, in a word, shocking, where shocking = rocking and rocking = danceable and danceable = nuts and nuts = 80s kitsch-sex-funk-house-new-wave-punk-disco.
