For Lack of a Better Name (The Extended Mixes)
Label: Ultra Records, LLC
Is success going to Deadmau5's big, red-eared head? With his hook-laden electro-house continuing to convert fans by the legion, the mischievous Toronto producer frontloads his new album with three minutes of pummeling snares, then dives into a three-track passage that's more prog rock than progressive house, complete with electro-funk lashings, horror-core organs, an Auto-Tuned chorus (of course) and even rapping. But the mouse climbs back on its wheel for the latter half, delivering all the chugging beats, whooshing effects and cheeky, squelching riffage his fans have signed up for.
