    A tedious minimal-electro-pop record delivered by this Sacramento Ca. band, that helps as a shopping, or elevator background music. It just causes the boring reaction, because of its way, using almost the same regular tempo while trying to make a tribute to the disco, electro & funk records. Beware of the singer who tries to be "sexy" and stylish, 7 people on his band and no one stoped him? A perfect gift for your friend the clothes store clerk... a burned copy of course. Collapse

  1. Strange Weather, Isn't It? is not life-altering fare, but the album's 40 minutes of club-approved funk-rock signals another noteworthy entry in the band's discography.
  2. These layered, multi-directional numbers stand out rather than fit in. On either side are tunes a little too straightforward, big ideas a little too self-contained to really mesh in the way you want them to.

    Berlin's long-running tendency toward grit-glitz, which musicians from Bowie to Peaches have channeled in their work, is the inspiration for this fourth record of functional fun.
