One of the finest dance albums of all time,
This review is from: Intensify (Audio CD)
OK, so this album won't have the groundbreaking importance of Leftism or the mass appeal of Phat Of The Land, but in terms of pure, unabashed musical quality, this is certainly one of the finest dance albums of all time.
The production is absolutely phenomenal. It is complex yet cleam, intricate yet easy to listen to, and it never, ever sounds computerised or repetitive. Lush synths, pumping beats, rhythmic breaks and emotive yet beautifully subtle vocals all combine perfectly to create a true masterpiece - a perfectly formed album of intelligent but not beard-stroking dance music.
I implore anyone with even the slightest interest in dance music to buy this album. Way Out West go about their business without much of the nonsense that surrounds other 'superstar' dance acts and DJs and it shows... As far as I'm concerned (and I run a record label so I know what I'm talking about), this album is as close to perfection as you are likely to hear any time soon. Buy it... NOW.
