Somewhere between big-beat techno and more laidback trip-hop, the first album by Pepe Deluxe works in familiar territory. Many of these samples have been heard before, and the influences (ranging from easy listening to soundtracks to hip-hop) aren't very original either. Even if Super Sound doesn't earn points for the sound, however, it's an album of crisp grooves and hook-inflected tracks that never get boring.
