Telepopmusik rose quickly and subliminally to fame when their single "Breathe" appeared on televisions around the world in Mitsubishi's Eclipse advertising campaign. That single, which spawned remixes from the likes of Massive Attack, Jori Hulkonnen, Markus Nikolai and Markus Schulz, to name but a few, was part of an album which, for all of its good intentions, failed to live up to the hype of the single. 2002's "Genetic World" was a postmodern hodgepodge of tracks, many well-crafted and inspired, others flailing. On "Angel milk," their second outing, Telepopmusik have matured. This album is more coherent. With the departure of Portishead, trip-hop has yearned for a loungy, bluesy voice to replace Beth Gibbons, and McCluskey seems to have responded to the call. "Angel milk" is quintessentially noir. However, as in the last album, this album's low moments come when vocalist Mau pays too much tribute to Tricky. Telepopmusik are much like Portishead, only they are less gritty and more ethereal, not spooky but instead dreamy. They should focus more on being themselves and less on paying tribute to trip-hop's past, and their music will suffer less for it.
