Felix da Housecat He Was King

Electroclash godfather Felix da Housecat supposedly wanted this album to be more pop than his past albums. He succeeded—kind of. Sure, the tracks are accessible, but they're also undemanding; the music is fun, but a little disposable. The bouncy beat and breathy vocals on “Plastik Fantastik,” for example, get boring fast. Contrast that with the outstanding “Kickdrum,” which is thick, textured, and flat-out gorgeous. “Do We Move Your World” is a light-hearted, shimmery synth-pop confection and while the buzzy, beat-driven “LA Ravers” will never make it onto Ryan Seacrest's Top 40, plenty of pop goodness lies within.
