Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The global success of Belgium's Euro-pop artists Ian Van Dahl and Milk Inc, and the continued Belgium adoration of Kim Wilde, explains a lot about the style of Some Things. Like their peers, as well as Lasgo having the knack to produce addictive pop cuts, lead singer Evi has a strikingly similar voice to Wilde's, with the synth sound of the album drawing heavily on Kim's 1984 LP "Teases and Dares". Other 80s stars who also liked tinkering with their Roland's are subtly quoted on the album too, for instance the Thompson Twins ("Follow You"), Depeche Mode ("Blue") and A-Ha ("Cloud Surfers"). While Evi provides the vocals to the majority of the tracks, fellow group member David takes the lead on "Cry" and "Don't Belong To You". There are two instrumentals as well, the Giorgio Moroder inspired opener "Intro", and the "Take on Me"-with-added-bagpipes track, "Cloud Surfers". While no Euro-pop artist to date has ever been able to come up with anything more than catchy cheese for lyrics, the excellent keyboards successfully distract you away from the traditionally mindless verse. More poppier and a lot less pretentious than the work of other 80s electronica impressionists such as Fischerspooner, Some Things is one of those rare, half-decent Euro-pop albums. --John Galilee

All I can say is WOW! We've heard 'Something', we loved it!
We've heard 'Alone', we loved it! But is there anything else worth loving on this album? Yes there definatly is! I must admit the first time I listen to the whole album at once, I was impressed with about 50% of the tracks and mabe thinking "oh well, thats what you get with albums". But these other 50% grow on you like nobody's business. Within a few days, I was listening to the whole album through everytime, no skipping tracks, just enjoying every second of it. Theres only a couple that I would even consider skipping, but the rest are absolutely fantastic.
The CD is throughout very 'Lasgo' sounding, so if you didn't like their previous releases, then obviously it wont be worth buying this CD, but if you were crazy about them as I was, then this is definatly an album worth getting.
I was even going to mention my best tracks from the album, but I started to do it, but realised there was no point, as I was putting virtually all the tracks down because they are all amazing!
I had to go out of my way to get this cd imported from Germany. Luckerly its out now in the UK so you can simply buy it from Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lasgo crazy! 3 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
OK so another Belgium trance act hits the scene? In one sense yes but somehow the first single "Something" sounded a little different with those Kim Wilde-esq vocals sitting on top of seemingly perfect production sounds. With Lasgo's second single "Alone" sounding even better the album looked promising. "Some Things" is a melancholy album with "Intro" (leading into "Something") setting the mood beautifully as an instrumental taster of what's to come. You could argue that there are a couple of "fillers" on here but at 15 tracks long that can't be bad! A real surprise is "Cry", again a slower very melancholy track this time with vocals from David Vervoot (producer, keyboards and vocals) and real pianos - I think this shows a diversity lacking in other bands of the same genre. Interesting to note that the much later UK release of this album sees not only redesigned (and much more sophisticated) packaging but more tracks most notably the best track (for me) on the album "You". For me this is the most catchy tune. Very high energy production sounds, superb vocals from Evy Goffin, will make you dance and cry all at the same time - this has been spinning in my mp3 player for days now! The repackaging and re-shuffle of the track listing shows Lasgo are taking the UK market seriously and it has paid off with a top 10 entry in the UK album chart - this album deserves to do well not only for Lasgo but for all fans of dance/trance/euro music and it's good to see them in our charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting, enjoyable and damn right good album 30 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
After listening to a few of the album audio samples from the Lasgo website [...], I rushed out to buy it. The album consists of 15 tracks, but 13 separate songs (One remix, one 'Intro' track). Two of the 13 tracks are ballards, but the rest are high energy, uplifting, banging dance/vocal trance tunes. Yes, COME ON!!! The vocals are spot on, the lyrics are great and easy to learn, basslines are thumping and the synths are just magical.
Serious, this albums just rocks. Slap it in the CD player, turn up the volume and just let yourself go! This album is definitely a party starter. It will not let you down. Ok, some people might say that it's commerical euro trash, but so what? It doesn't pretend to be anything else. If you like Flip & Fill, Milk Inc., Lange, Ian van Dahl, you WILL love this album.
A well justified 5/5! Roll on the second album :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic dance choons! 10 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a huuge fan of 'Something' and 'Alone', I had been conttemplating buying this album for a while....and when I heard 'Pray' on the radio recently, it was the decision maker!
If you are a fan of Lasgo,then this album is certainly for you. Was surprised to hear some slow songs..almost ballads..but they work really well,and still have that Lasgo sounding beat.
This is a great album to bop along to,getting ready to go out.
BUY IT NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning 14 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
I really love this CD. Strong lyrics with the distinctive and powerful voice of Evi Goffin backed up with a high energy trance sound. The music bridges the gap between pure trance and pop songs. I've been living and breathing this music for two weeks now and its one of those CD's that really takes you somewhere else. Highly recommended!
