Destroy Rock & Roll

Mylo

2004

Destroy Rock & Roll

Album Summary

Destroy Rock & Roll is the first and only album by Scottish record producer and DJ Mylo (real name Myles MacInnes), released in 2004. The album samples many 1970s and 1980s soft rock songs that Mylo heard on the radio as a child. The single "In My Arms" combines hits by Kim Carnes and Boy Meets Girl. The title track samples a fundamentalist Christian sermon, while "Drop the Pressure" is based around a vocal recording made by Mylo himself and edited with a vocoder. The album was re-released in 2005, and peaked at number 26 on the UK Albums Chart. The re-released contained a new remix of "Drop the Pressure", called "Doctor Pressure" (vs. Miami Sound Machine), which was also a number 3 single.

There's no chance of this destroying rock & roll. It doesn't have the energy for that. It's just going to sit on the couch, baked out of its mind, and talk shit about rock & roll instead.

“Destroy Rock & Roll” by Mylo (2004) First time for this album & artist. Music to listen to while on hold. Music to listen to while on hold. Music to listen to while on hold. Music to listen to while on hold. Music to listen to while on hold. 2/5

Definitely did not need to hear this before I die, because I have a feeling this is what will be playing in hell and I’ll hear plenty of it then. Also, decidedly false advertising in the title there, Mr. Mylo.

What an absolute fucking ripper. Have heard Drop the Pressure 1,000,000 times before on dance floors but so good to hear it in the context of its album. Has all the best elements of Sneaky Sound System, Pnau and Groove Armada. Improved my mood a lot after listening.

From the first track, I loved the sound. Wild smooth samples and if you like lo: fi Hiphop / Trip hop, House, delicious solos, nostalgic beats and electronic music from the beginning 2000, then this album is one you must hear. You probably know Drop the pressure, but this album can do a lot more than that.

It's now been almost two months since the last 5 I've given in the list. I've been bombarded with some very forgetful music since (not all of it of course) so I wasn't expecting much from this one but it has stopped me on my tracks. This is awesome music, I can't believe I've never listened to it. I mean, I know why, I was very into indie at the time of its release but after that I think I should have run into it but certainly didn't. What a shame. This takes heavily from Homework and YCALGB without being derivative. I think it should be a 4 but dammit, after all those dreadful records the algorithm has given me, it’s going off with a 5.

Me gustó mucho. Algunos temas me hicieron acordar a Royksopp y la voz digitalizada de "Drop the pressure" me hizo acordar a Daft Punk. Este es el tipo de album que usaría para programar: es fácil de escuchar, no distrae mucho y está bueno. Es muy difícil lograr ese balance: que sea una canción que pueda quedar de fondo y que no aburra al mismo tiempo. Voy a escuchar este album seguido. Bienvenido Mylo a mi vida. 4/5

El primer género musical que escuché en mi vida es "la marcha" jajajaja nótese la edad. La música electrónica en cualquiera de sus derivados y géneros me parece espectacular y siempre la voy a armar. Este disco es simplemente precioso. Drop the Pressure es mega conocida, más allá de los obvios 13M de reproducciones que indica Spotify pero in "My Arms" también es espectacular. Tiene el sample del tema "Bette Davis Eyes" de Kim Carnes muy a la vista y es precioso. Lo escucharé nuevamente. 8,5/10 ludomatics.

Un álbum de electro house adictivo. El ligero pero solido debut de Mylo no decepciona. Desde los momentos más downtempo hasta los más funky nos encontramos con tracks memorables pero por sobre todo atractivos, lo que lo hace de este un álbum de electrónica muy accesible para cualquiera. Para mí un sólido 7/10

A very enjoyable start. Valley of the Dolls is meh, but Sunworshipper is good fun, Muscle Cars is atmospheric, Drop the Pressure is an absolute TUNE and In My Arms is actually more enjoyable than its sample source. A rarity, the back end of the album is actually better! Destroy Rock and Roll was a favourite back in the day, but it gets glitchier and a bit more disco towards the back and all of it is really enjoyable. A really strong album. House for those who don't normally house!

Someone else has said in here that they’ve already heard this album every time they’re on hold, which is accurate. Also you you what, it’s pretty good! What’s wild is this album came out in 2004 and had a remaster in 2005. I guess it’s because it didn’t come out in North America for a bit.

Part RJD2, part Daft Punk, Part 2ManyDJs, part Boards of Canada, Mylo's sole album is solid entry overall in the IDM/house/electronica genre. The first two tracks are enticing and mellow, the ones that follow ("Muscle Cars", "Drop the Pressure" and "In My Arms") are absolute dancefloor bangers, and the rest of the album flows neatly from one song to the next. A special mention should go out to the title track, with its hilarious sample of a Christian fundamentalist's rant here turned on its head to become a celebration of everything that gathers us all here on this very app. That some music fans in this group can't understand that *Destroy Rock & Roll* is first and foremost an ironic title--or pretend not to understand it--is baffling to me (see some of those 1/5 reviews at the bottom of the page). Some people *do* have a very short attention span, don't they? Well... Listening to one album a day is an arduous process, i'll give them that... :) That being said, that *one* review claiming this music is the sort of of stuff you hear while you're on hold on the phone might *also* have a point, and it made me laugh, I admit it. It's indeed probable that the album's beats and grooves sound a little dated to some ears today. Yet one could argue that there are still enough little touches here and there to make such sound timeless in its own special way (vocal samples, funky basslines, vocoder-tinged vocals, ambient layers, etc.). On a side note, it must also be pointed out that *Destroy Rock & Roll* foretold the mash-up craze of the mid-aughts. I don't know if we can *really* thank Mylo for that (that craze deflated pretty quickly, and this for good reasons), but there's no arguing he was ahead of the curve when he released that first album of his. *Destroy Rock & Roll*, might not be an essential listen for some, but to me it still deserves its four stars, if only for this--not to mention the fact that the record displays richness, inventivity and, most of all, a very solid list of tracks. Number of albums left to review or just listen to: 966 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: 14 Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 8 (including this one) Albums from the list I will *not* include in mine (as I think many others are more important): 11 Albums I might not be able to judge (some might end up on my final list but it's because I recognize how culturally important they are): 2

My first thought was who the fuck is Mylo, never heard of 'em! But it turns out I've heard "Drop the Pressure" dozens of times and always assumed it was a Daft Punk tune. I guess that's where this album sits? About half way between Daft Punk and Röyksopp? Hmmm, I'd probably give this 3.5 stars if I could, but I'm in a good mood so will round up. Fave track - "Drop the Pressure", I guess. It's the main banger...

08/24/2022 This album was sooo fun and truly exceeded my expectations. It’s wild that this album is almost 20 years old, but some of the songs sound insanely modern (looking at you sunworshipper). Also I could immediately envision the gays throwing it back at Heat nightclub for a song like Drop the Pressure. I listened to this album while I was working in studio today and couldn’t stop bopping my lil head!!! It does get a bit repetitive and lackluster toward the end, but I will definitely be listening to this album again. — Today was great! We presented our models assigned earlier this week and one of my classmates said that mine were the most well crafted in front of the entire class, I was SHOOK. But yeah, I whipped out some drawings really fast and then attended the school’s back to school party and talked to lots of thesis students who were all very nice. I went to my landscape architecture class and DIED bc it was outside and it was humid and hot ASFFFFF, however we got to go into this mini museum installation on campus about things that thrive through human contact but have grown out of human control. 9am class tomorrow morning, still need to read. Good night <3

I was surprised to like it so much - it's definitely not something I'd have picked up if it wasn't for this list. But I really liked it, especially the more downtempo parts in the beginning and ending. Tracks such as Valley of the Dolls, Sunworshipper, Zenophile, Need You Tonite, Emotion 98.6 gave me a nice dancey vibe with a bit of nostalgia which suits this early autumn weather just perfectly. At times sounded a lot like Royskopp, which is perfectly fine with me. Drop the Pressure is pure fun. 4.0/5, will definitely be going back to this one

A misleading name, more downtempo than destructive. An enjoyable listen, even though I slightly question whether this deserves to make the cut of this type of list.

+ Valley of the Dolls, Drop the Pressure, In My Arms, Guilty of Love - Sunworshipper, Destroy Rock & Roll Chill and suave, relaxing, good for concentration, until it isn't...Some of the tracks feature spoken samples that are repeated OVER AND OVER ("Missing Persons, Duran Duran")...This might be acceptable in early electronic music where voice samples were a novelty, but this album is from 2004 where they have no excuse for it.

In 2009 I spent a decent amount of musical bandwidth trying to understand electronic music.I especially wanted to "get" techno and tap into the weird joy that stoic Germans experience after dancing for 2 days straight in an abandoned East Berlin factory, but I never got in. House music, though, was much easier to feel. I loved today's album. It's fun as hell. Not at all challenging. Very standing desk dancable. Production is bright and welcoming. It's easy to anticipate the loud-soft transitions - you already know where each track is going even when hearing it for the first time. It all seems very connected to some natural inner programming. Does a truly great album have to challenge the listener? Can consistent good vibes dance music be considered great? Why the hell not. B+

But not something I would put on to jam out in the car or hanging around the house. 1) Valley Of The Dolls 2* 2) Sunworshipper 3* Defintly a song I could see sitting on the beach laid back with a drink in hand enjoying the sun. 3) Muscle Cars 3* 4) Drop The Pressure 4* Reminds me of 80's new wave mixed with Under Pressure by Queen 5) In My Arms 3* 6) Guilty Of Love 3* very jazzy feel. 7) Paris Four Hundred 3* 8) Destroy Rock & Roll 3* 9) Rikki 3* 10) Otto's Journey 4* only because it reminds me of late 80's and early 90's Hip Hop 11) Musclecar 3* 12) Zenophile 2* 13) Need You Tonite 2* Chill relaxing 14) Emotion 98.6 2*

vibey for the most part, although i really didn't like the title song not much i would recognise if i heard it again - not particularly memorable great background music flowed well

It's nice, very pleasent electronic music, but a lot of it seems relatively simple -"Drop The Pressure" was the first track to stand out -"Destroy Rock & Roll" is cool

Liked it overall. I notch up from "background music" for the energy and it was mostly engaging. There were a couple of really solid tracks but I also didn't care for the ones with the vocal clips looped on them. Art, I guess. 3.5 though

This is ahead of its time and the apt evolution of pop music skewing away from rock. It’s sad in retrospect but these beats are the start of edm.

Ihan okei konemusalevy. Ainahan nämä alkavat loppua kohden puuduttaa, mutta tässä mielenkiinto ja pieni jamittelu kestivät aika pitkään. Ei ollut ihan pelkkää monotonista jumputusta. Levyltä jäi mieleen kappale, jossa listailtiin eri bändien ja artistien nimiä.

This album is bookended by some very nice songs, but in the middle Mylo disappears up his own asshole. Good for making playlists, but not for sitting down and listening for an hour, as that's liable to drive one insane. Best track: Emotion 98.6

Dit album begon goed. Tot track 8 - de titeltrack. Die dreef me echt tot waanzin! En alles wat daarna kwam kon me toen ook niet meer zo bekoren. Maar voor de eerste 7 tracks dus toch nog wel een dikke voldoende.

Some standout hooks and beats, and nice steady flow in the mid-tempo range, but like much else in this genre, it gets a little samey and stale, and the tech sounds dated.

I didn't really like it all that much, apart from a couple of songs that had famous samples of songs I do love. And the title track, that was very interesting. Might be one of the most interesting songs I've come across in a long time.

Again, hats off to this project for introducing me to music I'd otherwise never hear. This one is quite a departure from most of the music I've listened to, and I really enjoyed it. I don't know much about this genre and how the production process works to make it, but the end result is engaging and catchy. Some really great beats throughout. Fun stuff.

This is the first and only album from DJ Mylo. It's house music that DJ Mylo made by sampling soft rock songs from his childhood in the 70's and 80's. Because of this, it's a unique album that many people liked. This album was fun to listen to, but I wouldn't say the title is correct - it didn't destroy rock & roll.

Some interesting jams but overall doesn't go into a direction beyond fun dancey tunes. Definitely a vibe better suited for the dance floor than an album listening experience.

To me, DJ Music always seems so... light and inconsequential. I put it on and listen to the whole album, and not even notice when it's over. There's nothing ever profound there. It's music to take some E to, get out on the dance floor and have a good time. Like, who cares if it's the UK version of the album or not, where they had to re-record tracks because of sampling? No one goes to a rave and listens THAT closely. "Ohhhhh, listen to the beat, they used THIS kind of drum machine instead of THIS kind." You're listening for that BOOM BOOM BOOM to bump and grind, get blitzed to and have some kind of communal, dance experience. So deep listening to this is almost impossible. And giving it a high rating is almost impossible too. It's the fast food of music, it will satisfy, but will you really remember it afterwards?

It's got a good beat and you can dance to it I guess. Mostly generic club music (this coming from someone who hasn't set foot in a dance club since, I don't know, the mid 90s?) and that's fine but not always my thing. I like the songs with the fundamentalist Christian fascist guy rattling off the 80s musical artists and the woman naming cars, respectfully. Other than the occasional sample I recognize, nothing really stands out here.

I'm surprised just how much I like this. I normally despise house music. This is just chill enough for me, probably those soft rock samples. Like most house music it does have really good bass synths they manage to not be overwhelming which tends to be a rarity in house. The rest of the synths find a somewhat peaceful balance too, again a rarity. It is a very very rare day when something listed as house or electronica gets higher than a two from me. The titular track is just weird, funny but very weird. Quite a few good names there (though some pronounced horribly wrong). Not sure I love that with the title itself makes me concerned. Though after reading the Wiki page about the song those both make so much more sense. But anytime you name drop my hometowns most famous band I'll like it. I have to be an REO fan by law. Though this being on the list and none of theirs being here should be against that law.

It's possible that I've heard music from Mylo before, but I can't say for sure. Destroy Rock & Roll was all new music for me. Sometimes I listen to some generic synthwave music to play as background noise to get me through the work day. This album felt very synthwave, and relatively generic. Most of the album was okay, but around the title track my individual track ratings were dipping in to the 2 star range. I did mark the opening and closing tracks ("Valley of the Dolls" and "Emotion 98.6") as tracks to come back to. I'll let the start and end keep the album afloat in the 3 star range (after rounding).

Écoute un peu distraite. Bonne musique de fond avec plusieurs bonnes grooves. Je n’étais par contre pas assez concentré sur mon écoute pour évaluer le montage des samplings vocaux qui sont supposés être humoristiques. Il faut tout de même considérer cette écoute comme l’écoute d’un œuvre du début des bedroom producer. Pour ça, c’est quand même bien.
