Reseña de álbum

Breathlessly anointed by the British press as pioneers of the "new rave" movement, Klaxons aren't quite as radical on Myths of the Near Future as they've been made out to be — but they're not as grating as the hype around them would suggest, either. Their sound is closer to dance-punk than revamped Madchester giddiness, more like Bloc Party before they got very, very serious than the Happy Mondays or Stone Roses. "Atlantis to Interzone" is the band's most overtly dancey song. Opening with shouts of "DJ!" sirens and guitars that sound sampled, but aren't, then segueing to beats and rhythms that soar and plunge like a roller coaster, the song is the closest approximation of what a "new rave" would actually sound like. Fortunately, though, Klaxons don't limit themselves to a strict diet of shouty vocals, angular guitars, and loping basslines (though these are all present and accounted for on less interesting tracks like "Magick" and "Four Horsemen of 2012"). Myths of the Near Future's layered, deep-focus production prevents the band's sound from getting too boxed-in, elevating "Forgotten Works" and "Isle of Her" with choral vocals and a chilly atmosphere reminiscent of Gary Numan, "Ashes to Ashes" Bowie, and the colder side of Wire. Paradoxically, Klaxons' more classic leanings are what make Myths of the Near Future's best songs sound fresh. "As Above, So Below," "Gravity's Rainbow," "Golden Skans," and "It's Not Over Yet" range from brisk, witty pop to radiant ballads, but they all boast hooks and melodies that many of Klaxons' more straightforward indie contemporaries would be proud to call their own. It's a little uneven and definitely not the reinvention of music as we know it, but Myths of the Near Future is a strong enough debut to survive a level of hype that has crushed other bands, and enjoyable enough to return to when the hype dies down.

Klaxon Madness

When I first bought this cd I wasn't too sure I was going to like it. After listnening through it twice I realized that it may be the most addicting disc I've ever listened to. Their sound is like nothing else I've heard. It's relaxing and upbeat at the same time. I love it. Not to mention the lyrics are pretty interesting. I would definitly reccomend picking it up.

Not Quite Outstanding, But Very Good

A surprisingly solid debut from a much hyped band. Plenty of reference points I can think of, but I have no idea why people have tagged them new-rave - much more of a danceable indie feel to this album. Really like the multi-layered vocals. Golden Skans is brilliant and I immediately liked Forgotten Works a lot too. Shades of all good guitar bands that make you want to dance, but with vocals that don't remind me of anyone- a good thing. Very close to 5 stars.

I'm Sold

I've noticed a pattern to these reviews... it seems everyone is skeptical at first. (I was no different, I have to admit.) This review comes with a warning: if you want the same old thing, don't download this album. However, if you are in the market for something different, you'll find this music not only addicting but also mood elevating in a way your not use to.

The London-based Klaxons feature the combined talents of Jamie Reynolds, James Righton, and Simon Taylor. Despite being a rock band at the core, Klaxons are heavily influenced by dance music, particularly the late-'80s/early-'90s U.K. rave movement. (Reynolds has even dubbed his band "nu-rave" to further emphasize the inspiration.) By the time Klaxons released their second low-key single, they had become a favorite of publications such as NME and wound up signing with Polydor Records. As the group...
