Amazing band. That's all that can be said.

Eh, I'm not feelin it.

It took awhile to grow on me. I've known about them for quite some time and the first time I heard them I was like, eh, it's cool. But now, it's like there's a certain depth to them that's to be appreciated. I didn't post their most popular stuff, maybe you should start off with that.

Btw, are you into Electro? Almost everyone who likes Electro likes CC and I've never heard anyone talk bad about them or claim they're overrated. They're just a class band in the Electro scene.

I used to be completely into electro but now I'm mainly a classical music guy.

They're alright. I like the Bloody Beetroots and Art versus Science better.

The two bands I mentioned are the strongest things keeping me interested in Dance music. I used to hate it, except that it's very easy to dance to.

Have you heard much of either? I don't know how big Bloody Beetroots are over there, but I was fairly certain Art Versus Science were only popular in Australia, given they only won the Triple J Unearthed comp like 2 years ago.

Yeah, not really. I don't think either are very big out here. I don't know much about either band, though I think Art vs. Science might have a bit of recognition out here.

I love Crystal Castles! There's a song besides Baptism that I listen to while rolling a lot, but I'm drawing a blank right now and can't remember... ahh! I will ask Vi to remind me when she wakes up. Btw that girl in the Baptism video looks like she's rolling balls in the very beginning lol. She seems kinda strung out actually :|

Crystal Castles is an amazing band... The first song I heard was Reckless but Baptism and Year of Silence are my faves.

If anyone hasn't already...

Check out "Not in Love" by the Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith (lead singer of The Cure).

It's damn good. ^_^
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Cool!

You mean the lead singer? lol.

She's probably on a psychedelic or rolling most def. Plus, her music is great for partaking in such activities. :P

Yes, Baptism is epic. Year of Silence is eerie, but i like it!

Yeah, that was one of the first I heard, though for some reason it's not among my favorites.

As far as Crystal Castles goes, they've been one of my favorite electro artists for a few years now. This is a favorite of mine..
