  • Summary: The British house trio has been performing, producing, and remixing for ten years, but 'Muzikizum' represents their first album, highlighted by the breakout UK hit single "Lazy" featuring guest vocals from David Byrne.

    An album full of highly dramatic and almost cinematic entertainment moments.
  2. 90
    This is a raging leviathan of a set, each track a powerful, swaggering anthem. [May 2002, p.97]
  3. Alternately pounding and pining, it's "faceless techno" at its very best. [Sep 2002, p.96]
  4. The London threesome behind X-Press 2 slaves to house's repetitious mechanics (check the ugly robot fart clouding "AC/DC") yet often transcends its self-imposed limitations through fastidious craft.
  5. Muzikizum is informed by a slim, spare aesthetic that sounds more 1992 than 2002, evoking simply produced, imperial-sounding tracks from Spooky and Leftfield; in other words, the glory days of progressive house.
  6. X-Press 2 are like a dancefloor Oasis; great at pleasing the crowds, less good at innovation, and fatally weakened by their reverence for washed-up old rockers.
  7. 60
    What makes this more than just efficient dance-floor fodder are the guest vocalists. [#9, p.158]
