So sleek! So chic!,
This review is from: Cicada - Special Edition (Audio CD)
Duran Duran once described their sound as the Sex Pistols meet Chic, and Cicada's sound could well be described as Duran Duran meet Giorgio Moroder.
This is 21st Century disco music: sleek, sexy house music topped with an oh-so-cool female vocal. Just as Duran Duran (again!) set their classic videos in jet-set locations, Cicada's music conjures up images of bright young things swanning around the globe from one glamorous location to another.
This special edition comes with a bonus disc of remixes: If disc one has one foot in the eighties, disc two is very much of the moment, with each of the tracks being given an electro-makeover.
Personally, I would have loved it if the bonus disc simply contained instrumental versions of the vocal tracks on disc one, but the remixes are a great addition to an already superb album.
p.s-there are actually eight tracks on disc two (Amazon lists seven tracks): The Same Old Scene (a cover of Roxy Music's finest hour) is actually track eight. Track seven is 'You Got Me Feeling' (Cicada remix).
