4.0 out of 5 stars SYNTHPOP AND ELECTRODISCO, 19 May 2003
This review is from: Best of (Audio CD)
This fascinating collection starts with Giorgio’s synthpop hits from the late 1960s and early 1970s, of which Looky Looky and Son Of My Father reached the highest chart positions in Europe and the UK. I Wanna Funk With You Tonight dates from 1977 and was released under the name The Munich Machine; Knights In White Satin comes from the same album. From Here To Eternity is a brilliant hypnotic electrodisco track from his 1978 album of the same name, while E=MC2 comes from the follow-up album. Together In Electric dreams appears on the soundtrack of a popular movie from about 1984, but tracks like Reach Out an To Be Number One were unfamiliar to me. Of course, if Giorgio Moroder had to compile all the great hits he produced for artists as diverse as Donna Summer, Blondie and Sigue Sigue Sputnik, it would take a box set to accommodate them all. This album gives a good overview of the solo outings of this synth pioneer though. Recommended to all fans of Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, The Pet Shop Boys and Gary Numan.
