  • Summary: The electronic duo from Germany release their fourth studio album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 13
  2. Negative: 0 out of 13
  1. There is little doubt they will be soundtrack composers in the years to come, but this is their bread and butter, and makes for an extremely impressive addition to an already formidable canon.
  2. This album might not carry the sub-woof weight of its predecessor but it carries the icy menace of producers at the peak of their powers. Cooler than a liquid nitrogen drip.

    It's an album the way a band would do it, meticulously mixed together by two of Germany's best electronic producers. A little bit tanz, a little bit rock and roll.
  4. For the most part, the beats and the synths are the stars of the show here. They're not as compelling as in the past--maybe only four albums into their career, the duo is preferring to color inside the lines.
  5. Here they get back to where they once belonged, layering all manner of squiggly synth riffs over the kind of sleek techno grooves that define Get Physical, the well-regarded Berlin label they helped found. That gives the music an appealingly relaxed vibe, but it also produces the slight scent of concession.
  6. It's the interplay of textures and surfaces that facinates, only faltering on the choice of guest vocalists. [Jun 2010, p.120]

    The resulting album, which has been 18 months in the making, is certainly more complicated, although not more sophisticated than previous work.
