WIRED ALL WRONG
BREAK OUT THE BATTLE TAPES
Featuring founding members of Self and God Lives Underwater who have also gone on to work with a list that reads like a who's who of what's hot in music (Paul Oakenfield, Beck), BREAK OUT THE BATTLE TAPES is an industrial rock flavored hodgepodge release that equally provides block rocking beats and toe tapping jams. Shifting between fantastic displays of danceable electronic rock like "Elevatin", nu-metal infusions like "Lost Angeles", mash-up melodies like "You're Freakin' Me Out Girl" and heavily programmed Brit-pop enchantment found on "Make a Fool", this 10-track disc finds two kindred spirits who've never worked in the same room together discovering a happy medium between lighting up the dancefloor and rocking live audiences. Slightly disposable if not accompanied with a few strong drinks and a bevy of flashing lights, this hybrid offering has the capability to keep the boys and girls that have both Linkin Park and Justin Timberlake in their disc collections shaking all night long.
