A great album of chunky beats and rawkus guitars in the noughties!
Who'd have thought it possible?
Well Armand's pulled it out of the bag.
Some of the tracks on his previous lp hinted at a move towards (dare I say it) a big beat sound and now he's gone for it big time.
The tunes seem to be built around the vocals rather than the usual "electronica" effect of it seemingly being whacked over the top. The rock rawness for once seems at one with the dance construction.
Armand's house roots are blatantly there in the relentless, building rhythm of the album.
Dance albums are supposed to get your head nodding and this doesn't disappoint.
It may be house, it may not be, but it definitely rocks.

I only bought this album for the one song, I heard My My My on the radio and couldn't get it out of my head, but I ended up getting a whole album I love. Sometimes on an album of this genre the songs can begin to sound quite 'samey' but not on Nympho, every song is unique.
