5.0 out of 5 stars Cisse Scores on his Debut, 21 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Music and Me: the DJ Inside Me (Audio CD)
In so many ways the selections contained in "Music and Me: the DJ Inside Me" mirror Lord Cisse of Frodsham's other career as a highly successful football striker. Envied by supporters of unambitious teams the Tyne over, Cisse's defiantly charismatic style and unwavering self-belief are writ large across 15 of the most exquisite dance tracks ever laid down by a footballer.
From the raw grooves in opening tracks "Shake" and "Superstylin'" he appears to grow in both confidence and style with the more assured anthemic beats "Express it" and "Masters at Work".
"Got to Get Away" hints at Cisse's restless soul with a plaintive plea that echoes his dissatisfaction at being played out of position by a ruddy-faced ice cream salesman from Madrid.
The harder edged African rhythms of "Tatana" and "Viel ou La" see the Lord hark back to his Ivorian roots with a pair of powerful romantic ballads apparently inspired by the love of his life, Lady Jude of Frodsham. "My Body Over" is a darkly poetic statement of defiance - surely a reaction to his career threatening injury at the hands of a gang of thuggish Lancastrians.
After a sojourn through world music influences Lord Djibril returns to form with "Where U At?". A question many of his UK based followers had posed over the last two seasons. "Tribal Fiction" gives us a telling insight into the incessant media hype and gossip surrounding life at the very top of the game. While "Watch the Sunrise" could be a direct quote from an interview he gave regarding Cisse's latest move to Sunderland, a team for which a bright new era appears to be dawning.
The final track is the standout piece in this melodic tour through the musical mind of one of football's most enigmatic figures. "Ogun De Gara - Shaft the Toon Mix" is destined to be a crowd pleaser for many seasons to come.
