Album Review: Simian Mobile Disco- Delicacies


It was said by someone long ago that if you give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters they would, thanks to the laws of probability, eventually write Hamlet. Simian Mobile Disco must have been aiming for something similar when they decided to produce their album “Delicacies”. Sadly though the monkeys failed, and the guys behind the mixing desks didn’t craft something spectacular. No. Instead they merely pressed button after button to create songs that, although may have been quite at home as the soundtrack for an 80s side scrolling video game, made me want to repeatedly bang my head against the keyboard. hard. I’d recommend giving this particular CD a miss, unless of course you want to reminisce by raving along to something that seems to have been inspired by the familiar tone of the old dial-up modems.
