Kish Kash

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
After two albums that pointed the way to nearly every dance music trend from electro to Brazilian beats, Brixton duo Basement Jaxx now dispense an amalgam that's simply "Jaxx music." Kish Kash is the hyperkinetic mishmash of l'mode styles amped by punk-rock energy and the Latin sass we've come to expect from Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton, minus the effervescent allure of the Next that lit up Rooty and Remedy. The pair are frankly more concerned with their own artistic development than with revolutionizing the dance hall yet again, and the trappings of this quest -- string sections, more song-oriented tracks -- make for excellent living-room listening.

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
After two albums that pointed the way to nearly every dance music trend from electro to Brazilian beats, Brixton duo Basement Jaxx now dispense an amalgam that's simply "Jaxx music." Kish Kash is the hyperkinetic mishmash of l'mode styles amped by punk-rock energy and the Latin sass we've come to expect from Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton, minus the effervescent allure of the Next that lit up Rooty and Remedy. The pair are frankly more concerned with their own artistic development than with revolutionizing the dance hall yet again, and the trappings of this quest -- string sections, more song-oriented tracks -- make for excellent living-room listening. Which isn't to say that Kish Kash lacks dance-floor propulsion -- not by a long shot. Meshell Ndegeocello's lascivious "Right Here's the Spot" bubbles over with Prince-ly bounce, and "Lucky Star," featuring touted newcomer Dizzee Rascal on the mike, is a manic rush of Middle Eastern strings and spongy bass. But new wave– and rock-flavored tracks, such as the white-hot opener, "Good Luck," with vocals by Bell Rays diva Lisa Kekaula, and the louche "Cish Cash," featuring Siouxsie Sioux 'N Sync's JC Chasez is another notable bit of stunt casting, are cut out for headphones or house parties rather than the clubs. And the disc's dreamy denouement, "Feels Like Home," shows the duo with their sights on Jaxx music that has nothing to do with dancing at all. Maybe this is where their head's at; the upshot is the first Basement Jaxx album that insinuates more than it dominates.
Rolling Stone - Ernest Hardy
The energy never sags and ideas never flag.

Blender - Dorian Lynskey
Their most violently inventive album yet.
