Mint Royale, On the Ropes. by Mint Royale - 13 Tracks - 52:55. Release date 10/11/1999.
But here are Mint Royale, spinning off of a trapeze (ooh), putting their heads in the lion's mouth (ahhh), and yes, walking that nefarious tightrope between overjoyed good times and drunken annoyance
Mint Royale has put out a complex, upbeat, fun, musical party masterpiece of an album. This mere density of melodies and content of this album is amazing. Deadbeat" is a bubbly, hyperactive dance tune of whimsy that will send all of its listeners into an orgasmic twirl. On the Ropes is probably one of the best CD's in my car. For the first three weeks I had it, it never left the player. This CD is for anyone looking for an easy first step into broadening their musical tastes to include electronic pop.
