Ok, this is a complete hype. OK, those two really make me wanna slap their face. OK, this chick's a complete fraud.

But fuck me with a stone, I like it. Listening repeatedly to the two albums, I just can't help getting mesmerized by those lo-fi hypnotic synths and vocal effects...

Every time someone talks about Crystal Castles i feel I must point they steal chiptunes tracks for their first tracks, and used an artwork from Trevor Brown without his permission and if you read his blog, you can learn they, or their manager, was bullshitting Trevor for months about their use of his artwork... blablabla.

Well. Apart from this and the hype.... Since i heard about the first album, i tried every 3 or 4 months to listen to it, trying to like it, but I could never succeed to get it.... tho I loved the Alice Practice song when I heard it in Skins, but it was a whole, the melodramatic scene charged with emotions..

On the second album there's one track I like...

I don't know why i want to like them, keeping on persisting to listen regularly etc... oh well.

another bandi found quite related, except that i loved the music a lot more was You Love Her Coz She's Dead, another thing that appeared in the Skins series

This leads me to someone who mixes Chiptunes hugely produced, i mean with a BIG sound for chip like sounds, with dancey and house y etc songs...

another thing that i shouldn't have liked, even less adored

Actually I must say what I like in CC is probably not the chiptune thing, but rather the distorted pads and repetitive sequencing that appears at times and somewhat reminds me of some 80's keyboards on Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush records.

I'm pretty sure I would dislike most of it too... But some songs just keep stuck in my head :((
