The Definition of DISCO - The definitive Donna Summer albun!
on 7 January 2003
I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviews....
I just wanted to re-emphasize a couple of points: Like a previous reviewer mentioned; Anyone who has ever said DISCO music is crap, or childish, or rubbish, or whatever, etc., etc., etc., has never heard any tracks from this album...and if they ever did, had no idea they were actually listening to so-called "DISCO" music.
If you never buy any other Donna Summer album (or any other disco album for that matter) but still want to have an idea of what all the fuss on DISCO was about back in her hay days, this is the album to get....original sequence or not. Having said that about the sequence...this album still has to be treated (and listened to) like you read a book, meaning you must start with track 1, and listen unbroken to the end of the whole album - because it is essentially a story set to music - IT COULD REALISTICALLY ACTUALLY BE CONVERTED TO A STAGE MUSICAL - AN OPERA! (which is why I reckon it had to be a double album) as a standard 2-sided single album would not have been enough time to do the story justice!
The music was way, way ahead of its time, and still is...because I listen to this album today and wish music being made today still sounded this gorgeous --- think of it as delicious ice cream for your ears!!!
