Album Review

After disappearing from American radar screens for several years — even as Armand Van Helden's trend-setting remix of "Spin Spin Sugar" remained very durable in clubs — Sneaker Pimps became a radically different group with their third album. Less experimental, less distinctive, and definitely missing the production finesse of Nellee Hooper, Bloodsport suffers musically from a lack of imagination and vocally from Chris Corner's surprisingly post-grunge style of delivery. From the sub-Depeche Mode industrial pop of the opener "Kiro TV" to the bland "Nightclubbing" sound-alike "Small Town Witch," Sneaker Pimps hardly sound like the same band that made indie pop sound hip again back in 1996.

Customer Reviews

iTunes review doesn't do this justice

I think this is a sweet electronic pop album. Different from Spin Spin Sugar yes, but a great sound for fans of Portishead, Tricky, Bjork, Everything But the Girl, Depeche Mode, Junior Boys etc.

love it!

I have waited a very long time for this album to become available on iTunes. always loved Sick, and Bloodsport, and had high hopes for the rest of the album. I was unable to find it elsewhere. I had heard discouraging reviews due to the vocalist change, though I kept an open mind. I LOVE THIS! It is AMAZING!! I get why they made the change, too Portishead with the previous vocalist; as amazing as she was..... the material on this album needed the visionary behind this band. At the top of my list always!! Please bring all Sneakerpimps material to iTunes!! There is an audience!! We need it like air!!!!!!

Nice Transition

A smooth transition to his,Corner's, solo project IAMX (which is simply amazing stuff).
