It's honestly been way too long since we busted out a Track Marks post [proper review of a full album]. It's such a consumption of time to do it right, so with our love of twitter, combined with an advance copy of Simian Mobile Disco's new album, Temporary Pleasure, we decided to shift it from Track Marks to twack marks! All lower case, and "speech impediment-ized", each track gets 140 characters of a review, and here's how the album fared!

Before we jump in, some info. We will be doing these twack mark reviews live on twitter as we listen to the album, so the format will be regulated, in the event followers jump in midway through.

Format is: ARTIST NAME - Track # - Track Name [Review...Grade]

Here we go!

Simian Mobile Disco - 01 - Cream Dream [rubbery beat with falsetto vocals...nice starting point...solid B]

Simian Mobile Disco - 02 - Audacity of Huge [massive beat with electrotwiddles and silly lyrics from Chris Keating...A+]

Simian Mobile Disco - 03 - 1000 Horses Can't Be Wrong [rising minute long intro segues into 3+ minutes of throttling power...A-]

Simian Mobile Disco - 04 - Cruel Intentions [initially thought it needed more punch...hi-qual does it justice...Ditto could hit harder...B-]

Simian Mobile Disco - 05 - Off The Map [heartracing beat and Jamie Lidell vocals pair perfectly to make you sweat just listening to it...A]

Simian Mobile Disco - 06 - Synthesise [this sounds like many of SMD's older works...would have liked a bass line reinterpretation...C+]

Simian Mobile Disco - 07 - Bad Blood [everything Alexis Taylor touches is rad...couldnt pay me to hate this Brazilian-influenced track...A+]

Simian Mobile Disco - 08 - Turn Up The Dial [watery intro with Young Fathers spitting fire from get go...slick move into a hip-hop vibe...B]

Simian Mobile Disco - 09 - Ambulance [schizophrenic and mucho frenetic, this one is all over the place...beat drop at 4:13 is ace...C]

Simian Mobile Disco - 10 - Pinball [with help from Telepathe, this sounds like SMD doing a Fever Ray track...i dig...good way to close...B+]

Overall, this is one album we're sure will be on repeat for many weeks to come. Sure we may skip over a track here and there, but it's a cohesive and equally danceable sophomore studio album from the London lads.
