#25-CRYSTAL CASTLES-Crystal Castles II (Polydor)

The Brooklyn duo that crafted one of the most original electropop albums ever by using the 8-bit sounds of arcade video games from the 80’s – unfairly dismissed by many as a one trick – returned in style. The strength of their second album, where Crystal Castles has expanded the sonic range of their debut and showed a keen eye for good tunes, was enough to silence even the most sceptical. ‘Celestica’ became a favourite and they ended the year scoring extra points by recruiting Robert Smith for their cover of Platinum Blonde ‘Not In Love’.
