Maybe I'm being nostalgic, remembering past days of dark, dodgy warehouses, frenetic strobes and ray-gun lasers cutting through suspended iceburgs of smoke...but this album is a classic piece of dance music history which belongs in anyone's collection. "Big Fun' is the crossover tune that simply never crossed over (except in dance music hungry 1988 Acid House U.K, where it went top 10). The fattest bass, the crispiest high-hats and the happiest party vocals ever made this track an anthem, and a lifestyle manifesto. 'Good Life', and ' Do You Love What You Feel' continued the party vibe created by the chunky techno-tinged house of veteran Kevin Saunderson splashed with the gospel-on-ecstacy vocals of Paris Gray. Yes, it's a classic, and yes, it's old school, but it's just as fresh today as it was in 1988. Get it if you were there, get it if you want to know what it felt like!

I wasn't a clubber or a party animal but this is still one of my faves of all time. The Chic of their generation. yeah, that good. Much imititated never bettered etc etc. One of THE seminal dance records.

Being an old man in his late thirties, I can well remember the advent of house and techno music. Picture the scene: synth-based
musics had been the subject of a media/music business backlash by the mid-eighties and then house started to happen.
Not big-time but almost secretly, like the new romantic movement
of some years before; people searching out obscure dance records from the states, dancing to them all night illegally in warehouses and fields. The police didn't like it, neither did the media or parliament. So what! We were on one and that was it! This was black America with a European twist. Weird!
Inner City were just priceless. Paradise is a great album, the singles proving golden milestones as house and techno exploded to
enslave the UK charts forever with the silicon beat. Kevin Saunderson had the funk big-style; I understood his Kraftwerk/
New Order/Moroder fixation and appreciated just what he was doing. Always the more commercial and varied exponent from the
Belleville Three (the Detroit techno godhead of Juan Atkins (Model 500/Cybotron), Derrick May (Mayday/Rythim is Rythim) and himself), 'Reese' knew the stuff inside out. Tracks like 'Power of Passion' show just how talented they were. The album was 'Big Fun' indeed. To be alive in 89 with their sound around you was pure joy.
Whatever happened to Inner City? I bought the latter singles like Do Ya? and Anonghay but something was lost. We are a sadder
nation for that. Buy this album - it's just superb.

Some house and techno outfits have made better 12"s but no-one has made a better album. Paris's voice bursts with emotion and yearning while Sanderson's understated, powerful electronics have inspired such unlikely movements as British hardcore and drum and bass. This album's never been topped, and I don't think it ever will be.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. You can't beat a bit of 80's dance. Big Fun being the best 80's dance track EVER!
