Review: We got a repress of this gem this year thanks to the lovely people at PIAS, a body-pumping amalgamation of synth-pop and electroid deluge. In an interview, Alice was asked: Q: "What’s the lyric you’re happiest about? It’s a song about using the bodies of people in taxidermy. A way of preserving them forever.”Vocals produced by Squeak E. Crystal Castles' first album was the anthem of many drunken dance parties in the summer of 2008 and helped solidify electronica as a huge part of my existence. Sampling an underground chiptune producer, and then having the balls to say "We get sounds no one else does." in interviews.

There's a lot to say here, so I'll try to keep it short and get the obvious outta the way: I don't mind sampling, everyone does it, but they were so snotty about the way they did it.
