Synopsis

Amazon.com
Including 4 new songs and 13 remixes, Expand Your Head slices, dices, and reassembles the Lords of Acid's X-rated techno-raunch into a towering stack of dance-floor trends. Opening with the new "Am I Sexy," the Lords follow suit à la the campy big beat of Dimitri from Paris. Newbie number two, "As I Am," is standard-issue rave-alert acid house, while "Who Do You Think You Are," with its lyrically colorless rap screamed above industrial guitars, is a toss off (ahem). The last new song on the disc, and the album's shining moment, is the hidden 17th track, a righteously down-and-dirty rendition of Patti LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade." Here, the Lords are in their element creating heavy, electrifying waterbed rhythms as Jade-4U seductively beckons, "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?" The rest of the album is a collection of singles remixed by some of electronic music's biggest superstars, including KMFDM, Luc Van Acker, Joey Beltram, Frankie Bones, and Richie Hawtin, a.k.a. Plastikman. The songs are clearly remixed into each artists' signature sound (ranging from industrial to Detroit techno), but most are too heady, sapping the bump-and-grind oomph from the originals. And none of the tracks are representative of the remixers' best work. Lords of Acid arbiters will be underwhelmed. --Beth Massa

CD Reviews

I would give it 5 stars but.........
Stephen J. Dumont | Dallas, TX USA | 10/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love the Lords and have all their stuff, but this cd really disappointed me. I do like some of the songs, but not too many. The bonus track is definitely the best and I am VERY surpised I haven't heard it on the radio. If you are going to buy your first LOA cd, do not make it this one. Get Lust or Voodoo-u first. Those are the best of them all. Then you can get this one after you see what the Lords really can do!"
Fun to listen to

"First of all, if I could have given it 4.5 stars, I would have, but it just barely falls short of 5. Anyways, that said, Expand Your head is a really fun album to listen to. Don't buy it looking for profound lyrics or thought provoking sounds. Do buy it if you just wanna listen to some mindless music with a fun beat and some raunchy lyrics. It's sure to stick in your head for a while after listening to it. My personal favorite is track 1, Am I Sexy"
Awesome remixes
