Music Like Dirt

Soul Hooligan's ambitious debut album, Music Like Dirt, is a disc that adheres to no one style in assaulting the listener's senses with some of the most unusually styled combinations quite possibly ever mixed together. The band claims to be similar to the likes of Badly Drawn Boy, Portishead, Buffalo Springfield, and Fatboy Slim, and while all comparisons are quite accurate, you can just imagine what the end result must sound like. The album opens with "Algebra," which bears an uncanny resemblance to a similarly eclectic European group known as Gorillaz, yet relies more on the strengths of hip-hop then the moody rock the aforementioned band revolves around. The beats on this album help sustain it when the songs falter (as is the case on "Night Owl"), which allows for constant entertainment even for fans not accustomed to the big beat and soul styles presented among the more common radio-friendly alternative rock and electronica which invades many of Soul Hooligan's tunes. Honestly, Music Like Dirt is either hit or miss, as its daring attempt at always shifting from genre to genre through the course of one song can easily confuse a listener looking for more straightforward rock, yet this is also its greatest strength for those who look for something more inventive in their music. If nothing else, Music Like Dirt is an album that never slows down to become predictable, and has the ability to surprise you from start to finish. Artistic and unique, Soul Hooligan doesn't settle for average, pushing themselves to the limits to prove music can be adventurous if one really tries.
