CD Reviews

Other best album of the year

"how can chicks on speed have the 2 #1 albums of the year? well, this and rereleases of the unreleases are essentially the same album. well, actually this is the album, and rereleases of the unreleases is a collage of sorts featuring remixes, interviews, out takes, etc. of these songs. so, if you like albums, buy this one. if you like random craziness, good time summer, and mix tape fodder buy rereleases. or you can buy both! whoo!oh yeah, in case you were wondering: atari teenage riot + oval + le tigre + books on dadaism = chicks on speed."
These Dadaist Supremes reign supreme!!

"Having had the fortune of seeing this band live, I can say that they certainly do live up to the promise of the title: Chicks on Speed are a high-spirited, avant-gaurde electronica Grrl group that deconstruct house, electronica pop, new wave, while generating a deadpan critique of glamour, beauty and fashion. Purely having fun with the form, they recontextualize the pop sound with early synth beats, vocoders and beatboxes. Editting is jumpy and do-it-yrself, experimental sounds puncture songs, while vocals are refreshingly unenhanced. "Give me back my Man" becomes an industrio-beat box cold play, while their cover of "Warm Leatherette" is perhaps the most athletic and nihlistic its have ever been performed (just to the left of Grace Jone's cover in 82!). "Glamour Girl" is about the only radio/dance-floor friendly listen, but the undertone's are largely absurd and hilarious. Do yourself a favor and check this disc out, and oh yeah, catch their live show if you ever have the chance!"
WOW! Amazing work of musicart redefines music

"With the way in which American music is now directed (far downward), it is nice to see such a band as Chicks on Speed gaining momentum here in the US. I first heard Chicks on Speed at the WMF Club in Berlin, fell in love, and had to buy the first WMF album, just to get another taste of COS's raw energy. C.O.S. is a refreshing blend of powerpop, techno-euro-trash, angry girl rantings, tri-continental lyric sensibilities, and sampling techniques which make you scratch your head and think..."Huh?"C.O.S. is definetely its own breed of music. However, it is also very accessible. One might easily dismiss it as simple "Arthouse-chic-snob-music", but it really is so much more. Among the tracks, "Kaltes Klares Wasser" is a standout. It has the perfect mix of beat, smart lyrics, and a biting undertone. That, mixed up with a little bit of German, is the formula that works. COS definetely deserves to be noticed, so get used to them, they will "save us all"...right?"
