If you're one of those lucky souls blessed with the gift of synesthesia, you may not feel so lucky when listening to this album. What you'll picture in your mind's eye when you hear Darkdancer is the worst music video you've ever seen: feather-haired folks in red leather jackets with a surfeit of diagonal zippers wandering through a landscape of fluorescent geometric shapes. At the climax, everything moves in slow motion. Welcome back to the '80s. Les Rhythmes Digitales, a.k.a. Jacques Lu Cont (an Englishman despite the name), digs that woebegone decade enough to make up for everyone else's lack of enthusiasm. On what is for all intents and purposes his debut, he's aimed his arsenal of vintage analog synths at your nostalgia and pleasure zones. The result is a smooth tour of Eurythmic bass lines, vocoderizations, and a guest appearance from Canadian big-in-the-U.K. '80s singer Nik Kershaw. Considering how gimmicky the conception is, it's a surprisingly amenable listen from start to finish, though only on the astonishing single "Jacques Your Body (Make Me Sweat)" does he tweak his source material enough to make clear he's capable of keeping some distance from his silliest indulgences. --Jeff Salamon

I've owned this album in it's former incarnation for 5 years now and I still listen to it most weeks. Check out the reviews for the 1999 version of this album for some pretty accurate descriptions. A truly fab album.

No longer stocked in most UK music stores (and if it is, i can't find it) I had my copy stolen a while ago and i have missed it ever since. So, thank you Amazon for reuniting me with what feels like an old friend.
Yes - the whole album has an 80's flavour running through it.
Yes - Jaques Lu Cont is not French (a bonus maybe?) but he does remind me of Daft Punk, Cassius et al.
And Yes - Nik Kershaw does appear on the album.
But - it works! It really does.
Basically if you love dance music with a wicked vocal hook, you will love this album. I urge you to buy it now.

I got this a couple of years ago not knowing much about (just liked the cover I believe) but when I did actually listen to it I thought it was very contemporary. In fact, looking at the recent electro/clash wave, Jacques was rather before his time. Musically, the 80's influence is rather obvious though not as much as his offshoot Zoot Woman, and this much more dance-orientated from disco to electro. Highly recommended!!!

As a massive Stuart Price fan, I had high hopes for this. The tracks aren't mixed together, which I think might have helped the overall impact of the CD. It has moments of greatness, but it is just not as exciting as his more recent work. The stand out track for me is "Sometimes". I can listen to that one on repeat.

I heard the track "Jacques your Body" on the TV advert, and decided to buy the album. It's not the *best* album I have ever purchased, but it is good. The second CD contains mainly remixes (Jacques your Body appears three times in total, which I found a little excessive), and two videos.
I would warn anyone with young children be careful at allowing them to view the video of Sometimes (on the second CD), as it is based around a teddy bear committing suicide (which I found a little disturbing).
If you've heard the track on the advert, then the album is a reasonably good buy, but because of the videos, I have only given this 3 stars (without the videos it would have been 4 stars).
