Lords Of Acid

Little Mighty Rabbit

Ten years of silence for this? You've got to be kidding me. With a sound pitched somewhere between My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult's cast-offs circa the "Dasiy Chain 4 Satan" sessions and, like, Kei$ha, "Little Mighty Rabbit" could be seen as a return to form, of sorts, but that form is unfortunately disposable Eurodisco cheez. You can almost guess how the song sounds without hearing it - female moaning in orgasmic delight? check! generic techno beat? check! distorted vocals? fucking check! - total formulaic disappointment.

Oddly, with rave about to make a comeback as the likes of Tiesto and Swedish House Mafia storm the charts and dudes like Skrillex take dubstep to the teens, with the right remixer this may very well be LOA's moment. Which reminds me, besides the three new numbers, "Little Mighy Rabbit" is padded out wtih no less than nine (!) remixes of the title song. And shame on KMFDM and Chris Vrenna for being two of those remixers.

Thumbs down.
