After releasing a series of dance floor dominating singles over the past few years, Todd Terje tries his hand at the long playing format, and the results are pretty successful. Whilst avoiding the traps and pitfalls of just producing a mere collection of singles, or worse still, padding out the hits with similar but less inspired filler, Terje does a Daft Punk and delves into dance musics 70's roots with a selection of retro tracks that just about evade the 'derivative' label.

As you'd expect there is a heavy disco influence (in the more European, heavily electronic Giorgio Moroder/Patrick Cowley/Koto vein rather than the live band, syncopated Nile Rodgers style), but on top of that there's tracks that are pure Herbie Hancock style jazz funk, spaced out lounge/easy listening reminiscent of Herb Alpert or Henry Mancini, some esoteric stuff that sounds like it could have been included in the Katamari Damacy soundtrack, like lost gems from the golden age of library music.

However, all this retro referencing and nods to musical influences is all well and good but the main thing here is that this record is just fun. It's good lighthearted catchy pop music and upbeat dance music. The only real exception is the the Robert Palmer cover with Bryan Ferry's vocals which is like an emotive centre amid all the campy spacesynth and Eurodisco. There are even a couple of mini song suites which does sound quite proggy on paper, but Terje completely sidesteps the chin stroking in favour of foot tapping. Plus the album closes with 'Inspector Norse', which is nice.

Lets face it, this is probably the most anticipated record in a long time. Todd's been dropping EPs left right and centre, and the question on most people's lips was "when's the album coming Todd?"

After a long period of making disco edits; Todd Terje moved into the world of his own productions. The first I heard of was inspector Norse, with it's pulsy synths and exciting pace. I really thought it could get no better.

I'd obviously not heard Delorean Dynamite - a beautifully crafted 6 minute piece which takes you back to the past of synth music, a time when Jarre was king and the Arp synth was considered hardcore. At the same time Todd makes us feel like we're in a new future we have never seen coming, and this is why this track is so important. He's thought of everything here, from the bumpy beats, cloudy synths and the funky rhythm guitar - this is the sort of track that sells albums, and Todd's hit gold.

Other massive tracks include Todd's homage to Robert Palmer with Johnny And Mary, which features Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry. It's a very nice cover which makes you feel all fuzzy and warm.

The rest of the album is just as good, with it's funky disco feel and retro synths. Svensk Sås is a stand-out here. I'm not really getting a feel for Oh Joy yet, but I guess it won't be long until I like that too.

This was well worth the wait-it's funky, fun, retro and different. It really reminds me of when Royksopp first hit the charts back in 2002, it's new different and just cool. I would highly recommend checking out his Soundcloud as there's always interesting sounds coming from him.

Brilliant début, worth every penny.

This album has quite simply been on a loop for the week that I've owned it. In a world where a lot of music just serves to tell you how great it is to have loads of money / fast cars / bling, or bleat about how tough life is on the streets, Todd Terje has produced a rollicking album of pop/house/funk-infused dance. It is classy, lighthearted, immediately accessible and - heaven help me - fun.

This is a quality album that does not for one second even think about taking itself too seriously. Having said that, there is some absolutely blinding music that you just have to keep coming back to. Stand-out tracks for me are the trippy, trancy, dreamy chords of Delorean Dynamite, the chilled, arpeggiator-laden loungecore of Preben Goes to Acapulco, and the absolutely exquisite Oh Joy, which starts off like the Get Carter theme and turns into a stonking, piano-driven dance anthem. Having said that, there isn't one duff track on the album, and it's a joy from start to finish. An interesting break in the mayhem is Bryan Ferry's breathy, laid-back vocal cover of Robert Palmer's Johnny and Mary.

The musical styles are pretty varied. 70s is writ large all over. I get hints of Emerson, Lake and Palmer (particularly with the cheesy synth leads) and turn-of century Darude with the chunky basses, but it's totally unique. There is even an insane samba track, Alfonso Muskedunder.

I actually adore this album and it's the best thing I've bought in ages. Perfect antidote for all the crap and with summer coming this will get plenty of play. Bravo, Sir!

I went into a cafe in Norwich for lunch and they had this on in the background. I was unable to concentrate on what my wife was saying during Deleorean Dynamite. It was the first time I'd heard it and I was swept up. I'm a big fan of electronica and this is the most exciting thing I've heard in years. Well since the last Orbital album anyway. Its like Air meets Kraftwerk meets Disco meets Yellow Magic orchestra. Parts of it are nearly House, I would expectthere are some banging refixes of some of this.

Absolutely cracking album.
