International Language tones down the few Chicago house elements which had creeped into Plasticity, replacing them with sublime acid-electro, tribal elements on several tracks, and the same emphasis on samples which occasionally distorts the value of the underlying music. Though the melodies and chord progressions sometimes verge on the obvious, International Language is a worthy addition to CV's mammoth discography.
Plasticity...with some extras
Plasticity get's a re-working!
Subtle yet stunning electro-smog.
Do not be deceived by the slick beats that anchor and propel the glowering atmospheres and dubby textures that skulk in the background. Messages flicker, just out of view, deep in the sonic murk and in the corner of your vision. The Cabs were never euphoric dance, all of their 90s output leaning more toward braindance/bleep home listening -awkward, nervous and sinister electronic music. Taxi Mutant is a robo-funk revision of an intense rhythmical workout of theirs from 'Johnny Yes/No', an early Eighties release. A fascinating release, not as superficial as a quick first listen might reveal.
