Album Capsules--Pantha Du Prince & The Bell Laboratory

Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laboratory

Elements of Light


German techno producer decides to grab two things for his new album: some buddies and a 3-ton musical instrument called the bell carillon, which is made up of 50 bronze bells.  Then he lays down some beats and has his friends go haywire on bells.  The album unintentionally evokes Christopher Walken's SNL appearance as Bruce Dickinson, producer of Blue Oyster Cult, continually demanding "more cowbell."  It also makes me think that I need to hit the snooze alarm.  Really, it's better than that, but there are a lot of fucking bells.  Pantha's other albums are better.
