Disco Inferno - D.I. Go Pop

After an initial listen of D.I. Go Pop, you can't help but think about just how ironic the record's title is. With repeated listens though, the title of the album becomes more and more appropriate. Buried beneath the band's groundbreaking (and in many ways, still unmatched) use of layered guitars, bizarre sound samples, ambient noise, and at times industrial inspired tunes, are beautiful pop compositions. Unlike most bands, Disco Inferno challenges their listeners to find the hidden pop hooks, which creates a much more rewarding listening experience. I can't stress enough how essential this record is, just be patient and let it grow on you. Bands don't make albums like this anymore.
