BLOGTOBER 2009: Music Reviews (05 of 22) Basement Jaxx, Scars

Basement Jaxx put out their first album since 2006 last month. Scars continues with their usual slew of guest vocalist, and this bunch is especially eclectic, don't like Kelis on Scars, don't worry, you 've got Yo Majesty on Twerk, or the surprisingly effective Yoko Ono on Day of the Sunflowers (We March On).

The songs are as varied as the guest vocalist, from the spare electro-hip hop of Scars, to the dub step of Saga (featuring Santigold), to the Funkadelic-ish She's No Good (featuring Eli 'paperboy' Reed).

It's a crazy journey, one I personally enjoyed going on, I'm sure this isn't for everyone, but it worked for me.
