Album Review: Digitalism - 'I Love You Dude'

Album title aside, not a bad listen

Album Review: Digitalism - 'I Love You Dude'

6 / 10 This has got to be the worst album title so far this year. The German duo changed it from the mooted ‘Tourism’ to give more of an impression of the euphoric, pilled-up vibe. Yet cringingly vibed-up first words aside – where we’re also leaving the Eurovision cheese of ‘2 Hearts’ – the follow-up to 2007’s debut, ‘Idealism’, is not all bad.

‘Forrest Gump’ – co-written by Julian Casablancas via email – is indie electronica with legs that could creep up on the outside as a sleeper summer hit; ‘Reeperbahn’ comes on like The Prodigy ripping up a zombie apocalypse, and ‘Just Gazin’’ is saucer-eyed stupefaction. Love may be too strong a word, but this is alright, dude.
