Review in Short
MSTRKRFT - Fist of God

Fans of huge breakneck electro bangers should love the sophomore LP from MSTRKRFT. Fist of God is tailor made for the clubbing hipster. Thirty-eight minutes of high energy future dance, that more than overtly tips its hat to Daft Punk and Basement Jaxx. Of course, this duo never reaches the complexity and overall genius that is DP, but there are definitely moments of pure ear candy here. I particularly dig the big hard-hitting track "Click Click", "Heartbreaker", featuring John Legend, and the first single "Bounce". The album also features contributions from E-40, Ghostface Killah, Jamal, and more.

Fist of God has an overall slick production quality, resulting in a smooth and consistent sound. And I love how each track blends seamlessly into the next. But overall it feels like things could have gotten dirtier.
