CMX: Lepattajat

CMX: LepattajatCD, Herodes/EMI Finland 2003

Track list: Lepattajat - Ruisperkele

CMX was my favourite band for long, but slowly my interest is waning. At least I'm seriously considering the need to buy every single they release. Of course, it's good to hear some tasters of the coming album - especially as I don't listen to radio. Their b-side songs are usually interesting, as is the case this time. Both "Lepattajat" and "Ruisperkele" are good songs, there's no doubt about it. Don't let the bad rating mislead you, it's not the songs. But the price! The bloody two-song six-minute single cost 5,95 euros! That's theft. It's good I can split the costs with my girl friend, but still it's too much. I'll be buying their albums, but I'll have to reconsider the singles. **

Cosmo Jones Beat Machine: NegrospiritualizedCD, Hot Igloo 2003

Track list: Aboriginality - (Doin' the) Jonestown Stomp - Stripped-Down Spirituality - Dinin' with the Mau-Mau - Jesus Don't Mind My Drinking - Mississippi Sound System - EuroLeroy - Voodoo Audio Blues - Parallel City - Preachin' the Gospel - Hellbait - Smilin' Snakes

I liked My Style Is Eurostyle - the previous album from Cosmo Jones Beat Machine - a lot. That's kind of curious, because my first contact with the band was a gig I didn't like. It took them a long time to release their second album, but here it is finally - and it's way better than the first one! Their rhythm'n'blues stomp has a bit more variety than before, but the wicked groove that makes your head nod and feet click the beat is there. Simply the best blues I've got in my collection. ****
