They clearly blew them out of the water, and every other band that followed them on their many festival appearances that year After getting this album I had to wonder whether I had been a bit too drunk on those occasions.
It seemed to contain none of the power that I had remembered, and I was disappointed by how flat it all sounded. Anyone who's seen them live will contest that the human breakbeat solo of the recorded version of Too Many Dj's pales in comparison to what they did live.
Despite this I still listened to the album rarely because I really liked one or two songs off of it. Then by late I realised it was getting played at least a couple of times a week Just kind of crept up on me. It still pales when compared to their live work, but they are an exceptional live act - kind of remind me of The Who who are my favourite band, I love every album but none of them match up to my live recordings.
If you like guitar music with intelligent lyrices, then you need to own this record. Soulwax are an amazing live band and the Dewaele brothers are fine DJ's, but 'Much Against Everyone's Advice' doesnt really put this across.
The maverick singles are all there, 'Conversation Intercom', 'Too Many DJ's' and the title track itself, all reminders of what got you interested in Soulwax in the first place, and what led you to witness the avalanche of style and sophisticated Belgian quirkiness that is their live show. Reminders of why you spent hours trawling the internet for those bootleg remixes of Beck, Skeelo and the Prodigy that represent the fruits of the Dewaele's disc-spinning prowess.
But they are not on this album, nor is the exquisite live version of Prince's 'Pop-life'. You dont get a free strip-light mic stand with every purchase and Steven Dewaele wont come round your house and play keepy-uppies like he did at V last summer. So what do you get? So should you buy it? Go and see them live and you will have no choice, but fear not, you wont regret it, even if it is just because you have secured ownership of a piece of memorabilia connected to the best Belgian band in the world.
