  • The second album from Justin Robertson's crew of British DJ renegades (this time with some live guitars and an MC tossed into the frantic mix) covers a lot of electronica ground on its 14 songs, sticking pretty close to classic, surging house through the stretch. And while quite a bit of it is incidental -- the vocals are simply layered atop the wildly stammering instrumental tracks, just as sampled dialogue was randomly piled onto An Instinct for Detection -- the best cuts on City Delirious (particularly the block-party electro-ska of "Rude Boy Rock") find as much inspiration on the sweaty dancefloor as they do in the gimmick-strewn studio in which the album was made. Lionrock's big beat is also more accessible this time around, trading in some of the more obscure musical references of the past for actual, timely tuned rhythms. ~ Michael Gallucci
Professional Reviews
Spin (7/98, p.128) - 8 (out of 10) - "...It's a mod, mod, mod world on the set, with Robertson, cast as coffee-house hipster Expresso Bongo, urging the kids to jive to black culture. Drawing from a palette of shuffle rhythms, cool jazz, and Northern soul, the band re-creates a rude-boy rebellion, fortifying the live instrumentation with analog electronics..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/26-7/3/98, p.127) - "...Opening his second LP with electro-boogie nostalgia, he bounds into a ska/R&B history lesson, does the double Dutch to a house groove, and forces garage punk and cool jazz into unusual liaisons..." - Rating: B+
