Like 2003's Fantomes, Monsters & Silly Songs is a sprawling, whimsical album, and its singles are the clear-cut highlights, surrounded by experiments that engage as frequently as they leave no lasting impression. Though it trails Fantomes by nearly four years, it's surprising it came out as early as it did.

Joakim - Monsters & Silly Songs I think 2007 is going to be a good year for Joakim. He's already released a slew of great remixes, the mighty 'Drumtrax' (that electro house song with the 'French Kiss' style breakdown) and now this, which is a very good album. Funnily enough, 'Monsters and Silly Songs' is made up of monsters, one-minute slices of controlled interference/noise, and the silly songs, which have a pleasantly wide scope: piano solos, electro, weird effects, pop and rock n roll.
