Crystal Castles - (III): Wikipedia Album Entry

Crystal Castles are back with their third full length, the appropriately titled III, produced entirely by Ethan Kath. "We Wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience," explains Ethan.
"Any keyboards and pedals used on I or II were traded for different keyboards and pedals so that there would be a new palette of sounds to work with. We wouldn't allow any computers near the studio, everything had to be recorded to tape. We'd limit ourselves to one take because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea."
Together the Canadian duo has conjured up a collection of songs that are as raw as they are well rounded. As III unfolds, each track will take you to greater heights and equal lows, as you enter the sometimes afflicted, and often polarized world that is Crystal Castles.
