Album Review

It'd be a bit limiting to call the Boom Boom Satellites the Japanese version of Prodigy or the Chemical Brothers, though the comparison goes a long way to describing the sound of Out Loud. "Push Eject" features a breakbeat attack with a set of vocals from Michiyuki Kawashima very reminiscent of Keith Flint (though admittedly he sounds more like Mark E. Smith a couple tracks later). It's clear that this album is much more than just a party record — the vocoder dub of "Limbo" is impeccably programmed, and the live drums by Naoki Hirai add much to "An Owl," with trumpet, sax, and flute as well. What sets this album apart from most big beat casualties is the production — like Si Begg's work as Buckfunk 3000, the Boom Boom Satellites embellish their version of rather uncomplicated breakbeat trance with dozens of little sonic touches that set each track apart. It's not the hackneyed Miles Davis impressions on "Batter the Jam No. 3" that make this a more important record than Crystal Method, it's just the natural ease of a well-produced album.
