      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Massive, creative, stylised tunes.

      I cant remember how i first discovered Simian Mobile Disco, but i do remember the day i first sat down to listen to 'Attack Decay Sustain Release'. I was wowed from start to finish and even though it was released in 2007, its still heavily listened to.

      The album starts out quiet and slow with the opening of 'Sleep Deprivation' where it builds and builds before exploding in a festival tent filling monster. Possibly my favourite track on the album 10/10
      Next up are "I got this down" and "It's the beat" both very electronic, vocal sample filled tracks. Definitely good for a party. 8/10 and 9/10 respectively.
      "Hustler" starts next. With a catchy vocal and a fantastic breakdown in the middle. 9/10
      "Tits & Acid". Well, wow. Tied with 'Sleep Deprivation' possibly. I love this tune. Turn it up and enjoy. Its an absolute monster of an instrumental. 10/10.
      "I Believe" slows things down (just a little) with some vocals and a very spacey feel. 9/10.
      This is where the album sort of turns for me. I really dont find the second half as enjoyable or powerful as the first.
      "HotDog", "Wooden", "Love" and "Scott" dont really jump out at me, and alot of times when listening through this album, i will stop after track 6. However, 'Love' is the best track out of these 4. 4, 5, 7 and 4/10 respectively for these ones!

      James and Jas are both incredibly talented (with James Shaw, for example, being a producer for albums by Arctic Monkeys and Florence & the Machine to name just two), and going on their subsequent releases and live performances - which have to be experienced to be believed - the duo deserve alot of attention.
      This album is where it started after 'Simian' broke up, and its definitely one of my favourites from the past few years.
      Id give it 4 1/2 if i could. The first half of the album is worth 5, but it starts to tail off.
