SFS CD Review:

"Crystal Castles sound like a whisk full of electro-punk splattered with Mario Brothers’ video game musica and "anti-this, anti-that rhymes". Their moniker was tagged after She-Ra’s castle, her place of power, from the 80s cartoon, "He-Man, Masters of the Universe"...
What glosses this album is the smart mix of their old and new sound, plus -- it's intelligent music. The older aggressive songs smack your face with a rubber mallet while the mellower songs take you on a hip, cerebral and robotic trip, with electric tenderness like Royskopp. So if you are into electronica, there’s something for everyone here. It’s electronica heaven with Crystal Castles at the console.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars."

"Crystal Castles is a Toronto-based band, described by Loud and Quiet as "the most exciting and original band in the world right now" consisting of multi-instrumentalist Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass. Crystal Castles are known not only for their own efforts as a band, but also because Kath has remixed songs by a number of other groups, including "Leni" by GoodBooks, "Hunting for Witches" by Bloc Party, and "Atlantis to Interzone" by friends and label mates, Klaxons." -- Wiki
