Evil Madness : Super Great Love

Words by

Published July 22, 2011

Iceland’s electronic Travelling Wilburys are back as BJ Nilsen, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Pétur Eyvindsson, Stilluppsteypa and DJ Musician take a break from creating ambient drones.
Their fourth album is a more focused, beat driven affair with a ‘80s hard electro/proto techno sound. There are exquisite electro moments (‘Isabelle Adjani’, ‘Cafe Eindhoven’), but Jesus, there are some shockingly nasty synth sounds on this record that you’d expect from the likes of Mercedes Club, especially the track ‘Divine Sensual Love Fantasy’. A serviceable effort, but who’d have thought that Jóhann Jóhannsson was a secret Technotronic fan?
