    Yes. Skrillex is awesome. But so many more people would buy a clean version of Rockin roll will take you to the mountain. I love that song but I can’t buy. Since it’s EXPLICIT. Plz Skrillex make a clean version. I would buy it for twenty bucks I’m sure lots of others would to. Have a nice day! - Emarald Dumand

    Can You Hear It?. Mister Moore calls his mixes chaotic. I call them complex. <\*/>"KILL EVERYBODY." This song truly breaks new ground in that it forms a genuine melody out of utterly different sounds. These sounds pass at such a dizzying speed, you may not distinguish a melody. Like ever! You may, like its creator, simply hear it as chaotic. Fortunately the sections which form this spectacular melody --- the oom-pah Swedish keyboards, the goofy hoot, the brief guitar strumming, and a more traditional truncated keyboard melody --- is repeated before the song goes back into the chorus. I use the term chorus loosely, because he it cutting new territory in so many ways. But I refer to the chorus as the vocoder kill everybody in the world sounds. The only thing truly grounding this piece is the kick drum. Solid as a rock. Otherwise, it requires imagination to hear. This song, even better than the song Nice Sprites(!), presents music so differently that Skrillex himself may not be aware of it. I suspect not, because he does not seem to play a discernable version of it in performance. Particularly with Diplo. It's like no one realizes how good it is. I have heard music since you could fingerb*ng discs, and this joyous thing is a transformative experience whenever I hear it. The question is: Can you hear it?

    I miss the good old days. This is his best work, after Bangarang, his songs got worse and worse. I’m sorry Skrillex, you were the best at your work. Now Virtual Riot, Snails, and many others are going to replace you.

    Oh god no. I can't believe people actually like this. There's only one song that isn't bad, which is "All I Ask of You". The rest? I don't understand why people call this music. By the way, my eardrums are soon going to have to be fixed if I preview some of the songs one more time. And this is NOT the future! If all the music in the future would be like this I wouldn't even live on this planet anymore.

Skrillex - Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites Album Wiki

Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites is the second extended play (EP) by American electronic music producer Skrillex. It was released exclusively through Beatport on October 22, 2010 through mau5trap and Big Beat Records, while being released on December 20 for digital download via other online retailers and on March 1, 2011 as a physical release. It was recorded in 2010 at Skrillex's apartment using a laptop. The EP features guest contributions from Penny, Foreign Beggars and Bare Noize as well as remixes done by Noisia, Zedd and Bare Noize. It won two Grammys at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards: one for Best Dance Recording, and another for Best Dance/Electronica Album. The EP received generally positive reviews from music critics and became a moderate commercial success, reaching number 49 on the Billboard 200, while also topping the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and reaching number 28 in Australia. As of November 2011, the EP was certified Gold in Canada with sales exceeding 40,000 copies. The EP's lead single, "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites", was a moderate commercial success internationally, peaking within the charts of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Sweden. It was later certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), with sales exceeding 500,000. On November 30, 2011, it was announced that the EP was nominated at the 54th Grammy Awards for Best Dance/Electronica Album. On February 12, 2012, the album won the Grammy for that category. A follow-up EP, More Monsters and Sprites, contains several remixes of the title track done by Dirtyphonics, Phonat, The Juggernaut and Kaskade. It is named after David Bowie's 1980 album Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)..
