The consensus on Simian Mobile Disco's newest album Temporary Pleasure is that it's not as earth-crumbling as their debut, Attack Decay Sustain Release, but some of the criticism seems to be aimed at the fact that SMD recruited some all-star guest vocalists instead of relative unknowns like Ninja and Char Johnson as they had before. Considering the quote/unquote all-stars are Alexis Taylor, Chris Keating, Telepathe, Young Fathers, Gruff Rhys, Jamie Lidell and Beth Ditto, and we're pretty sure 99% of the human race doesn't know who at least 75% of those people are, that doesn't seem like that valid a criticism. A better one would be that SMD made a mostly mid-tempo, one-note pop album instead of another crazy disco one. But there are still some jams, including "Cruel Intentions" with The Gossip's Ditto, a smoldering open-ended request for "good times." One of our young favorites, Bristol's Joker, got license to turn it into an, uhmm, electro/house/dubstep/purple/strip club/early/late/anthem? Whatever it is, Joker can do no wrong right now, and he should get as many famous people as possible on his debut album, in the works right now.
