Contender For Best Dance Album Of The Year, 16 Jun 2007
I've Been impressed by pretty much everything I've heard from this French duo for the past few years. Their tunes have been rocking club nights all over the world and their debut LP does not disappoint. At first listen, this has all the hallmarks of a genre defining album like Daft Pumk's 'Homework'. So if you've been disheartened by Daft Punk offerings of late this album will certainly quench your thirst for that mix of funk, 80's chic, filthy synths and insatiable beats.
Just from the grand intro of 'Genesis' into the raw but emotional relentlessness of 'Let There Be Light' you know you're listening to something a bit special. The single 'D.A.N.C.E' is probably the most commercially accessible in the same school as the very successful 'We Are Your Friends' but still maintains that aura of french chic. By the time you reach the bass and distorted synth overload that is 'Waters of Nazareth' you'll be gagging for more.
Expect this to be THE dance album of 2007.
