Despite the varied palette, Dungen's fourth disc since 2001 is seamlessly constructed. Before transforming himself into a hip rocker, Ejstes was a DJ, and that makes total sense after listening to this record. It's as if Ejstes culled a dizzying number of classic samples from the late '60s and early '70s, arranging them into a dense pattern of sound (just like the Beatles' Love). It's cool that mods can sound like a DJ Shadow disc, but sometimes Dungen's jams are way too compressed, sounding as if they were tailor-made for the speakers on my iMac. That's great for the Cardigans, but not for a rock band pretending to be the Pretty Things.
