Judging by the style of their debut album, Fragma appear to be treading the same route as Dario G, Robert Miles, Alice Deejay and the Vengaboys. Establish your reputation with a cutting-edge but memorable dance track ("Toca's Miracle"), and then guaranteeing future chart success by recruiting female session singers to perform catchy Euro-pop compositions ("Everytime You Need Me"). This method may not guarantee longevity, or demonstrate avant-garde creativity but it certainly generates the cash. Drawing on the pop-pulling power of session artistes Damae, Coco, Maria Rubia, Eva Martinez the album contains plenty "Everytime You Need Me" type songs. "Reach Out" and "Magic" are healthy top 10 league singles which are pleasantly catchy, and are guaranteed club floor fillers from Inverness to Ibiza. "You Are Alive" and "Move On" provide a surprise, darker edge to the album, mixing early-eighties electro-pop similar in the style of Visage with more contemporary trance sounds. Sophisticated Euro-pop at its best.--John Galilee

As for the other tracks, some build up slowly and finish in style such as 'Everybody Knows' and the slightly haunting 'Do You Really Want To Feel It'; whilst many of the shorter tracks instantly get stuck in your head. I must mention the highlight of the album which is 'Magic'. The perfect title for a faultless song that has absolutely everything: a great beat, top vocals, variation, and the most catchy chorus in the world. Finally the new single 'You Are Alive' is also superb.
This album is so full of energy and spark that it is perfect for a party. However it is also great to chill out to on your own. Congratulations to Fragma the best DJ on the planet for producing such a masterpiece. To all music fans out there, and particularly dance fans, your record collection has got a huge gaping hole in it the size of the Grand Canyon if you do not buy this album. Listen and enjoy.
Sooooo, first things first: It's definitely worth buying if you like dance music, because this is the best out of the whole genre, and it's definitely worth buying if you liked their released singles. It is a great album, not one of the songs sound similar, which is a problem in a lot of the other dance albums around. The songs have strong beats and the voices don't just repeat themselves, they actually have verses and choruses. There are a few more instrumental songs here, but they too are fresh and original.
This was a song written to springboard the career of up coming UK based Gospel Vocalist Coco (Coco Star) back in 1994. Fragma spliced it with the great instrumental "Toca me" to create "Toca's Miracle".
At the time it came out it was alot better and stood out a little more back then. Although i dont particularly like this album im still going to give it 3/5 because i know quite a few people who like this album (or like i said, used to until a wider selection of dance/trance was available on the shelf)so i feel i ought to give it a fair judgement and not just generalise my tastes. if it was my rating alone id give it 2/5 because:
a) i feel many of the tracks were fillers and weren't produced to the standards found in productions of groups like Lasgo,Ian Van Dahl and Paul Van Dyk (i admit they also have album fillers, but not as many).
b)many of the tracks lacked good vocal backing, and a decent base. i generally like a good melody and a reletively hard beat (the track doesn't have to have vocals but my favourites tend to do-but if vocals are included then they ought to be either good or just left out) and i feel that many of the tracks were flat, lacked a decent beat (alot of the beats felt like cheap techno efforts-not dance or trance)and i would say many of the songs lyrics and vocals are poor.
But on a positive side i wouldnt be complaining if a club DJ put 'Tocas Miricle', 'everybody knows', 'you are alive' or 'everytime you need me' on to dance to (just as long as it isnt every week!)as they are decent dance tracks in my opinion..but none the less not worth buying an album for although i could see a few people liking the album if they are not looking for anything Hard.Read more ›
