Not content to let the French have all the fun with machines, German DJ Boys Noize (born Alexander Ridha) crams a storm of electronic sounds onto his debut album. He's an old-school hip-hop fan (one cut is called "Wu-Tang"; another cribs Public Enemy's "Don't Believe the Hype" title and spirit). But Ridha is at his best in "Deny Selected," which sounds like Kraftwerk, Art of Noise, and the Who firing up their synths all at the same time. Cool bonus track: the freaked-out remix of Feist's once-placid "My Moon My Man."
