ALEX DELIVERY: Star Destroyer LP (Jagjaguwar) - All the advance hype, which made references to Krautrock icons such as Can and Faust, caused me to check out this debut LP from Alex Delivery. Unfortunately, this heavily electronics-based set of tunes bore, in my humble opinion, little resemblance to the seminal sounds produced by those legends. Rather, the majority of the material on this release just sounded like sub-par electronica, lacking both the flow and charm which characterizes the best pop-oriented electronica and certainly not pushing any boundaries of hard core electronic experimentation, either. Ultimately, this didn't even interest me enough to "burn and return", it's just getting returned. Can?!? Don't believe the hype!
