After making the 10000 mile journey from the UK to my desk this morning there was no rest for Fierce Disco V as the discs were spinning as soon as I whipped off the protective plastic....The new slimline 2 disc packaging is a big improvement and a welcome one. In today's world of endless music online and where attention on one particular album is so quick to move on, I always found a bit difficult to aurally digest the entire 3 CD's of previous Fierce Angel compilations - but no more! The 2 Disc sets are spot on, the glossy packaging and artwork are sublime...but onto the music...
No question for this listener. The best Fierce Disco release to date!!
Disc 1 is all vocals and funky disco house - what you have come to expect from the glitterball world of the Angels. "Caught Up In A One Night Love Affair" is a perfect opener. Remaining highlights include : Seamus Haji & Cevin Fisher's I Love The Music, House Republic's Nuggetz and The Phantom's Revenge's Charlie is just too cool for words!
Disc 2 threads into Deepy Fierce territory. Vocal, driving tracks with a hint of retro from Serge Devant, Edwin van Cleef & Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries - I challenge anyone to get past this pack without hitting repeat...Haze & Full Intention' Signification has a great 80's style vocal over a bang up to date groove and of course no Fierce Angel compilation would be complete without the Queen of feel good house anthems - Bonnie Bailey - so good she gets 2 inclusions!
So another Fierce Angel release and this one is something very, very special. 24 tracks spread over 2 Disc's all wrapped up in gorgeous artwork and seamed together by the compilation king Mark Doyle.
And all for the price of a few drinks!! So support the Angels, make the purchase and hit the dance floor - your summer anthems are in the bag!
