5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic volume, 13 April 2012
This review is from: Disco Discharge: Disco Exotica (Audio CD)
It's no secrect that I love this series so I find it somewhat annoying when people post such negative reviews on here. Don't get me wrong - everyone is entitled to an opinion but if you're in the market for disco then I just don't understand the criticism. I am a die hard disco,Italo and HI NRG fan and as such really appreciate all the hard work that goes into putting these albums together. My view is that there hasn't been a more consistent series of disco compilations. Sure I'd like to see El Coco on an album but that track has long since been absent from any album so there must be a good reason for that. For myself I would reccomend this album whole heartedly. Particular favourites for me being 'Dancin' Machine' by Who's Who, 'House Of The Rising Sun' by Hot RS, 'Dirty Talk' by Klein & MBO, 'Soft Emotion' by Azoto, 'Dance To Dance' by Gino Soccio &'Il Veliero' by The Chaplin Band. And then there's the slightly guilty plesure of 'Don't Say Goodnight To A Lady Of Spain' by Jeanette and the glorious 'Hurricane' by Bette Midler. Anyway you get the picture. I love it.

Yes, we get the picture: your reviews of this series are so uncritical that everyone knows in advance that you'll give a five-star review to anything released under the banner of Disco Discharge. Statements such as "I am a die hard disco,Italo and HI NRG fan and as such really appreciate all the hard work that goes into putting these albums together" are not useful. They make you sound like you work at Harmless.

I'm not denying that some of the DD releases have been good. The first two quartets were of a generally high standard. But by the third and fourth rounds, with editions such as 'Euro beats' and 'Disco exotica', they really are milking the success of their own brand, irrespective of whether they've found anything worthwhile in the vaults.
