BBC Review

After a couple of below par albums, Armand returns with a mix CD of considerable substance and varying musical depths. His plan was to create a typical slice of New York nightlife, where a kaleidoscope of sounds clashes with one common theme - to move the crowd.

To be fair, he more than achieves it, and with some room to spare. If eclecticism is you thang, then it doesn't come more diverse than A New York Mix Odyssey that's book ended by Blondie's electric riffs on "Call Me" and the Monsters of Rock thrashing guitars of peroxide rockers Yes, with their Kerrang psalm to solitude, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart".

From the electronic pop synths of Soft Cell ("Tainted Love") and Yazoo ("Don't Go"), to the contemporary angst punk-funk sounds of Klonhertz, Felix Da Housecat and Aloud, this collection mixes and matches the past twenty years seamlessly for today's more esoteric dancefloors; it's amazing what can be achieved in Pro-Tools with a little patients.

No Van Helden set would be complete without a fair helping of his own productions and/or remixes. Here it's just the former with a trio of new tracks, including the recent top 40 hit "Hear My Name" featuring Spalding Rockwell. It's likely that at least one of remaining tracks will also be elevated to single status via his recent pact with Norman Cook's label. "My My My", which samples Gary Wright's influential "Dreamweaver" and oozes gospel reference with a French disco-undertone the most likely of the pair. The effervescent "Let Me Lead You", featuring La Rok, remains true to his Freestyle roots, and a little too-dated sounding alongside Company B's similarly styled "Fascinated".

Elsewhere this is all the stronger for the clever, and oh-so-true-ode to anyone and everyone that wants to be a DJ on Heavy Rock's "(I Just Want To Be A) Drummer" and the still essential filtered mash up of AB/DC (the nom de plume of Arthur Baker and Dave Clarke) with the two-year old "This Feelin'".

By refusing to adhere to any one musical style, AVH has become one of the most misunderstood artists the dance generation. But it's clear to see where his real passion likes - rock with a penchant for house. This is Armand's world and we are mere tourists! --Jack Smith

Format: Audio CD
Armand Van Helden is back, and this time he's got a mamouth task on his hands - making a mix CD which captures the vibe of a New York night out, not very easy as there are so many styles. If you listen to the intro, Armand himself describes the difficulty of doing such a CD.
Armand has collected some of the more popular NY tunes, Blondie's Call Me, which was pumping out of discoteques all over NYC. Armand cuts and slides into his own track, "Hear My Name", a sort of dancy afair with a grown up house sound. It's very different to his garage sound he was pioneering back in 1996. His music seems to have matured, and he's using an artilery of instruments.
Moving on, Armand flips some punk onto the decks: Klonhertz's sound is rough, yet reminds you of the days of The Clash. His mixing skills are amazing, he can mix directly from punk to electro house, Felix Da Housecat's rather repetitive punk track steams in. Excellent.
One thing you have to admire about this mix CD is it's diversity, something a lot of DJs cannot do, and a lot of record companies would refuse to do, but Armand has stuck to his guns and brought this excellent record. Other great moments come in the shape of Yazoo's don't go, which is quite refreshing after headbanging house. Other greats include Soft Cell's 80's electronica "Tainted Love", Armand's new tracks and the finale of Yes' "Owner of a lonely heart", which to me is a great way to end such a diverse mix.
A lot of people said it couldn't be done, but Armand has done a sterling job. Brilliant, would suggest it to anyone who enjoys music from the 80s, punk and rock, and of course house music. Brilliant.

WOW!!! what an album!, this is the first AVH album i've ever bought and initially it was a present for my sister but i LOVED it so much i had to get myself a copy! From the expertly selected opener of Blondie's 'call me' to his gut churningly good, 'hairs on the back stander upper' new single MyMyMy (which never fails to make me jump around with euphoria!)I can honestly say there is not a bad track on this album!!! More of it please!!!

I bought this album as I had previous AVH albums and was keen to get his new one after the release of possibly THE BEST dance single EVER released, Mymymy. But I was bitterly disappointed. I'd never really seen myself as an 80's music fan and was horrified to find that the 80's tracks listed on the album weren't cunning dance remixses but the originals!! The other tracks seemed a little strange (Watching Cars Go By and I Just Wanna Be A Drummer) leaving Armand's tracks as the saviours of the album!
Deciding to give it a chance, as AVH surely is the God of all Dj's, I kept listening...and before I knew it I was hooked. I mean, big time. I couldn't get the songs out of my head and craved listening to all the 80's tunes!! I soon realised that his Mix Odyssey is actually musical genious spanning decades of dance floor fillers. I have to admit I was wrong. This album is FANTASTIC. Yazoo's 'Don't Go' is amazing, as is the track by the Romantics, with AVH's own tunes putting 5* icing on an already top notch cake.
I saw Armand Van Helden play last weekend and got to meet him, I told him exactly my old concerns over the album and how I was now hooked and he said he wasn't surprised, a common reaction I'm told!! (Really cool guy by the way!!)
Roll on the release of Nympho!!!

Where has this man been for so long?? To say this album is pure genius would be an understatement – I haven’t stopped playing it yet and the more I listen to it the more I begin to fully appreciate the size of the task that faced Armand Van Helden. To create an album that symbolizes a night out in New York is a tough task with the multitude of music available but to mix today’s music with tracks from the 70’s and 80’s is daunting – not only from a selection perspective but also the skill to be able to mix the tracks. Armand Van Helden delivers a seamless selection; his own are by far the best on the album. “Hear My Name” is awesome and “My My My” is brilliant. My personal favourites(track 1 is actually an intro from Armand Van Helden) are tracks 3, 5, 9, 10, 12 and 14. If you’re reading this review thinking should I/shouldn’t I, just buy this you will not be disappointed. Please Armand, don’t keep us waiting as long for the next one!
