5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold 8 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Golden Boy through fashion magazines as part of the 'electroclash' movement and the release of the single 'Rippin Kittin'. Together with Miss Kittin, he has produced an album full of excellently structured songs and melodies.
Miss Kittin's usual deadpan, monotone commontaries on her previous work with Felix Da Housecat and The Hacker, are softened and she sends tracks like 'Autopilot' and the fun 'After 8' into moments of pure joy. Overall this is a warm, fun album which will get you tapping your foot and whistling along... and most importantly, making you feel glad you invested in a great modern dance album.
My favourite tracks are 'Rippin Kittin', the darker track about Miss Kittin's murderous tendancies (the version included here is not the single verion, which has a lush chorus), and '1234' a great track with a lovely Euro-fun melody, and Miss Kittin rambling on about not knowing what to say and a subtle knowing wink to her known lyrics about celebrity and parties.
This import features a short and sweet intro by Miss Kittin, and features better artwork (in my opinion) than the ordinary UK release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Boy gets a golden award... 22 Nov 2003
By English Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is another excellent release from Emperor Norton, and "Or" actually has one of the best synth-pop/electroclash songs ever on it! Before my review I want to mention some other Amazon.com reviewer's own comments: One guy went and said "Rippin Kittin" is by far the worst song on the album and he heard it in a gay club, so the song is "gay". Someone also wrote that "Rippin Kittin" is dark and not typical of Miss Kittin to sing this way. Those comments seem to be anything but the truth!
"Rippin Kittin" is by far the BEST song on the album, and probably the best synth-pop/electroclash song of the entire movement! Sure, the lyrics are dark, as Miss Kittin talks about killing with her parents weapons. But haven't we all heard Miss Kittin sing before? She has also sang about having dirty sex with rich and famous people in the back of a limousine, and she even laughs that Frank Sinatra is dead. She has even gone as far as singing about selling her body for sex in the stock exchange! As a matter of fact, "Stock Exchange" from Miss Kittin's first album, and "Madame Hollywood" from Felix Da Housecat's album both seem like prequel's to "Rippin Kittin". These are the three best songs by Miss Kittin, and of course, come from three different albums
As for "Or", the debut album from Golden Boy, we are presented with an extremely interesting album that has some very similar synth-lines when compared to the lead-in song, "Rippin Kittin". For example, "Kix" and "Kuckucksuhr" are both excellent songs that sound a lot like "Rippin Kittin" but without vocals. The same goes for "After 8". As a matter of fact, all the songs are great and danceable, except of course, the "Intro" track.
I would suggest buying Miss Kittin's "First Album" and Felix Da Housecat's "Kittenz And Thee Glitz" before purchasing "Or" by Golden Boy if you are new to this genre of music. All three albums have some very good songs, but "Or" will take the most getting used to for a new fan, because it is the least commercial. I would also suggest getting a hold of "Madame Hollywood" remix by Tiga. Tiga actually replaces the vocals of Miss Kittin's with his own male voice. He tends to say "...like the big dipper" repeatedly, but it is (in my opinion) a much hotter remix than the original version!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply delicious! 15 Jun 2002
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album I've been waiting to hear for a long time - before I even knew it existed...stompin, house tracks. Great techno and a real nice lively and, dare it say it, retro disco feel without sounding corny or cheesy at all.
Totally unpretencious this album parties with an aloof nonchalance that makes it simply divine. Great for parties, driving ... ;-) or just grooving in general. Get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This takes off where Felix Da Housecat ended Kittenz and thee Glitz. Slightly poppier, but with excellent techno rythms, electro synths, good vocals and even funkier 80s arcade game sounds. Oh, and Rippin Kittin is a nice dark song thrown in for good measure. Definitely one of the best tech-electro albums, but with Miss Kittin on it you can hardly go wrong anyways.

3.0 out of 5 stars he should be very thankful to Miss Kittin. 7 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I picked this up a while back because I love Miss Kittin. Unfortunately, the tracks without her vocals are rather bland and do not hold my attention. "Rippin Kittin" is amazingly good, as is "After 8," but Golden Boy's instrumentals aren't catchy or original enough to warrant repeated listens. Miss Kittin's work with the Hacker and Felix da Housecat are much more satifying.
3.0 out of 5 stars great after 8! 22 Sep 2003
By bowery boy - Published on Amazon.com

This is the weakest of the three Miss Kittin collaborations but don't be discouraged. If you're a Miss Kittin fan you won't be disappointed. Miss Kittin and the Hacker is the best although it's tongue-in-cheek 80s revival sound can be a bit too much at times. Felix da Housecat's Kittenz and Thee Glitz is really good too, especially `Madame Hollywood', not too cheesy with it's electro beats and retro sound. The only drawback to Felix's disc is not enough tracks with Miss Kittin on vocals. Goldenboy's `Or' is not bad but I must say `Rippin Kittin' by far is the worst track on the disc. It has a cheesy Europop gay disco sound to it (I've even danced to `Rippin Kittin' at the local gay niteclub ... didn't realize it was Miss Kittin on vocals until I purchased this). I think this is in part to the fact that Miss Kittin tries her hand at singing. She isn't bad at it but I prefer Miss Kittin's flat deadpan vocals to her attempts at sounding like a typical dance diva.
`After 8', `Autopilot' and `1-2-3-4' are by far the best tracks here. On the plus side Miss Kittin does vocals on six out of ten tracks so it's a must have for any Miss Kittin fan. Essentially, this is a disc of fairly good thumpy bumpy poppy house music that's doesn't tread new ground but is pure fun simply because of Miss Kittin. The tracks without her really are pointless.
