After releasing a series of dance floor dominating singles over the past few years, Todd Terje tries his hand at the long playing format, and the results are pretty successful. Whilst avoiding the traps and pitfalls of just producing a mere collection of singles, or worse still, padding out the hits with similar but less inspired filler, Terje does a Daft Punk and delves into dance musics 70's roots with a selection of retro tracks that just about evade the 'derivative' label.

As you'd expect there is a heavy disco influence (in the more European, heavily electronic Giorgio Moroder/Patrick Cowley/Koto vein rather than the live band, syncopated Nile Rodgers style), but on top of that there's tracks that are pure Herbie Hancock style jazz funk, spaced out lounge/easy listening reminiscent of Herb Alpert or Henry Mancini, some esoteric stuff that sounds like it could have been included in the Katamari Damacy soundtrack, like lost gems from the golden age of library music.

However, all this retro referencing and nods to musical influences is all well and good but the main thing here is that this record is just fun. It's good lighthearted catchy pop music and upbeat dance music. The only real exception is the the Robert Palmer cover with Bryan Ferry's vocals which is like an emotive centre amid all the campy spacesynth and Eurodisco. There are even a couple of mini song suites which does sound quite proggy on paper, but Terje completely sidesteps the chin stroking in favour of foot tapping. Plus the album closes with 'Inspector Norse', which is nice.

This is a delightful album. It is, for the most part, instrumental. Listening to the tracks I couldn't help but be reminded of the work of Jean Michel Jarre, albeit that the songs here are noticeably more fun and funky than some of Mr Jarre's work. There is some very clever use of keyboards and synthesisers, although nothing too experimental. You could compare some of the more synth-based tracks to artists like Air and Royksopp, and yet there is a happiness in this music, which makes it less pensive than some of the other artists I've mentioned. I've only just recently discovered the miserably undervalued electro-pop tunes of Pete Lunn (Peachland), and this effort from Todd Terje is an equally pleasant surprise, no doubt soon to be heard in a cool winebar somewhere near you

I went into a cafe in Norwich for lunch and they had this on in the background. I was unable to concentrate on what my wife was saying during Deleorean Dynamite. It was the first time I'd heard it and I was swept up. I'm a big fan of electronica and this is the most exciting thing I've heard in years. Well since the last Orbital album anyway. Its like Air meets Kraftwerk meets Disco meets Yellow Magic orchestra. Parts of it are nearly House, I would expectthere are some banging refixes of some of this.

Absolutely cracking album.

I felt compelled to write a review for this album. For me its not often that you get so many good tracks on an album to make a pleasing whole. If you like electronica, dance and disco, and can see the sense of melody and rhythm to music, as well as its originality with lots of layers and influences, this album will be for you. Its one of the most raved of electronic albums of 2014 and I can see why. You need to put it on and listen to it throughout as its crafted as one and not all the tracks are to the same ilk, plus it moves through different electronic genres. At first listen you might think its a little cheesy and unimpressive with its staccato café style on some tracks, but give it time and patience and it will reward you. Oh boy will it do so - a real builder album and the best are so! You could be forgiven (at the start) for thinking that listening to any one given track in itself might not be absolutely amazing, but as a whole this album builds and its for those that really take the time to appreciate music. Proper music and none of this online single track cherry picking. I happen to think at least 8 or 9 of the 12 tracks are brilliant. It hails to the current Scandinavian tradition of using lots of synths, some of which will be familiar in the sound of well known artists like Royksopp. It starts off with lots of Scandinavian sampling and synths, moves into chilled café lounge type music akin to the backbone of a something out of a 60's Rivera film, then carries on this tradition before moving into what sounds like Brazilian café lounge. All the time keeping it's disco and electronica stance. Then back onto club/disco and what sounds like house with lots of synths and key changes.Read more ›

Lets face it, this is probably the most anticipated record in a long time. Todd's been dropping EPs left right and centre, and the question on most people's lips was "when's the album coming Todd?"

After a long period of making disco edits; Todd Terje moved into the world of his own productions. The first I heard of was inspector Norse, with it's pulsy synths and exciting pace. I really thought it could get no better.

I'd obviously not heard Delorean Dynamite - a beautifully crafted 6 minute piece which takes you back to the past of synth music, a time when Jarre was king and the Arp synth was considered hardcore. At the same time Todd makes us feel like we're in a new future we have never seen coming, and this is why this track is so important. He's thought of everything here, from the bumpy beats, cloudy synths and the funky rhythm guitar - this is the sort of track that sells albums, and Todd's hit gold.

Other massive tracks include Todd's homage to Robert Palmer with Johnny And Mary, which features Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry. It's a very nice cover which makes you feel all fuzzy and warm.

The rest of the album is just as good, with it's funky disco feel and retro synths. Svensk Sås is a stand-out here. I'm not really getting a feel for Oh Joy yet, but I guess it won't be long until I like that too.

This was well worth the wait-it's funky, fun, retro and different. It really reminds me of when Royksopp first hit the charts back in 2002, it's new different and just cool. I would highly recommend checking out his Soundcloud as there's always interesting sounds coming from him.

Brilliant début, worth every penny.
