5.0 out of 5 stars This should have made Tiga a huge star, 8 May 2009
This review is from: Ciao! (Audio CD)
"Ciao !" is the second Tiga full length release, following 2006's "Sexor", and really should propel his creator as the Prince of Electro.

Like its predecessor, it creaks with potential hit singles, and has an incredible cast of collaborators (Jesper Dahlback or the Dewaele brothers from Soulwax and 2 Many DJs, and newbies LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy or Jason "Gonzales" Beck). "Beep Beep Beep", "Luxury" and the first single "Shoes" (which does NOT feature backing vocals by Madonna, unlike web rumours suggested) are all designed to drive dancefloors crazy, while "Mind Dimension" or "What You Need" are more harsh bleep house electro efforts. The songwriting element has been reinforced here to devastating effects, as testifies the awesome 10 minute-long disco epic final "Love Don't Dance Here Anymore". Overall, it has to be noted that the Canadian artist seems to have learnt from his debut that a bit of diversity helps; where "Sexor" was a string of rather straightforward cuts, "Ciao !" showcases some lot more varied arrangements, sometimes within the same track.

Lyrically and thematically, it explores more tales of sex, lust and money, but not in a making-fun mock kinda way; Tiga's not at all a cynical dude and drives a sincere love and praise for all things showcasing social richness, and manages to sound touching and relevant at that.

One of 2009's triumphs, no doubt.
