Fischerspooner, 'Entertainment' (FS Studios)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Barry Walters

For a performance-art/synth-pop duo seemingly designed to self-destruct in a blaze of hype, New York's Fischerspooner have outlasted not only their lusciously flashy 2002 single "Emerge," but also a substantial yet ignored 2005 second album, Odyssey. But Entertainment fails to deliver on any of that promise: Warren Fischer's zealous arrangements can't mask Casey Spooner's auto-pilot vocals, underdeveloped tunes, and glib sociology; the lengthy, giggling spoken intro to "Danse en France" sets up a punch line Spooner never hits. The surface- heavy results suggest painstakingly remixed outtakes.
