Crazy Itch Radio is the fourth studio album by English electronic music duo Basement Jaxx. The album features Linda Lewis and Swedish popstar Robyn among the guest vocalists. The album was listed on several publications' year-end lists, including The Observer and PopMatters. The Crazy Itch of life is the thing that inspires and motivates you to act," explains Felix Buxton about the title of the album.

Crazy Itch Radio isn't a bad album by any means; it just doesn't scream "best album of the year" from the moment you put it on. On the other hand, it could be a brand new kind of Jaxx album: A grower, one that doesn't exhaust you the first time around the track but one that accrues meaning and gets more enjoyable with each new spin. It's certainly less front-loaded than their first three records.

Mixed By – Andy Hughes (tracks: 1, 9), Basement Jaxx (tracks: 1 to 9, 11 to 14), Jason Boshoff (tracks: 2, 4, 5, 7, 10). Musical Assistance – Gavin Wright (tracks: 1, 4, 10, 11, 14). Photography By – John Short (2). Producer – Basement Jaxx. Strings – London Session Orchestra (tracks: 1, 4, 10, 11, 14). Written-By – Buxton (tracks: 2, 4 to 14), Ratcliffe (tracks: 2, 4 to 13).

Out pops Crazy Itch Radio, a disc loosely wrapped around the concept of the duo running their own station. They could have just as easily sold this as an original cast recording to a nonexistent stage production. Then again, the music is so color-packed, so off-the-wall that it could also work as the soundtrack to Rat Fink renderings of scenes from a movie dreamed by Baz Luhrmann.

By Crazy Itch Radio, Basement Jaxx has perfected their craft of mixing loud pompous and danceable music with diva-like or soulful female vocals. While the formula hasn't differed much since the splendid Rooty and the slightly uneven Kish Kash, the music here still seeks to thrill. Sounding more carnival than ever, each track has a happy and melodic vibe. Can they still keep relevant? This is the question that haunts Basement Jaxx's Crazy Itch Radio. These musical polyglots can still craft cracking tunes, whether the banjo-smacking and strings of "Take Me Back to Your House," the Balkan-inspired horns in "Hey You," or the gospel/Bollywood stomp of "Everybody. But you also get the feeling that they're recycling several of their earlier ideas.

Crazy Itch Radio' bumbles along with mid-paced beats and, it seems, too many disparate influences to really hold together.
