4.0 out of 5 stars A new "Prince" is here., 28 May 2004
Felix Stallings’ obsession with Prince is well documented. On this, the follow-up to 2001’s electroclash-defining ‘Kittenz And The Glitz’, he reprises Vanity 6 – the all-girl group seen in the 1984 Prince flick ‘Purple Rain’ – with his own girl group, Neon Fever. Given that none of them have a musical pedigree, ‘Devin Dazzle…’ could so easily have gone wrong. Instead it goes very, very right. ‘Devin Dazzle…’ encompasses DFA-like disco-punk (James Murphy guests on ‘What She Wants’) along with his more familiar ‘80s reference points, while ‘Watching Cars Go By’ and ‘Everyone Is Someone In LA’ are sizzling fusions of punk guitar, lady shouting and Felix’s light synth touch. Meanwhile, Tyrone Palmer, who sang on 1997’s ‘My Life Muzik’, delivers the album highlight, the mournful electro house of ‘Ready 2 Wear’. This Housecat has certainly got the look.
