The Contino Sessions (1999)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Death in Vegas

Death in Vegas' songs lock into a groove and slowly burrow into your consciousness. Breezily sung by guest Dot Allison, ''Dirge'' is pulled along by its reptilian bass line, while ''Aladdin's Story'' is the Velvet Underground's idea of gospel. With their repetitive guitar riffs echoing against electronics, DIV aren't as flashy as fellow crossover masters the Chemical Brothers, but on The Contino Sessions, their appeal doesn't fade as quickly, either.
