Sound — 7
This is a very electronic album and I find that it is best if enjoyed through headphones, with the bass really high. This way, especially if you are like me and are learning to play bass, you can really hear all of Jesse Keeler's bass techniques. Through headphones is actually the best way to hear the album the way it was meant to be heard.
Lyrics — 5
Some of the song lyrics were seriously hard to understand, but I feel that this was done because the lyrics were meant to be heard, for the most part anyway, as if they were another instrument, to compliment the sound rather than the feeling. Most of the albums lyrics were about sex though, which isnt bad but I feel they could have easily written something more political without much effort.
Overall Impression — 8
Youre a woman I'm a machine is an album which, I will say, is one I would play if I want to do some serious rave type dancing, or if I was partying with some friends. the best song as far as I'm concerned is Going Steady (track03) just because it it's fast and loud and catchy. I love DFA1979, I hope you do too. I reccomend at least checking it out, and if you like it and have an ipod, subscribe to the drum and bass arena podcast. DAF1979 isn't in it, but it will give you a better understanding of drum and bass music, and will make appreciate DFA1979 even more.
