Now Thats What I Call Real Music
on 16 January 2002
I cannot recommend this album enough; it slipped out towards the end of last year and somehow managed to escape all the usual media hype - and the end of year music polls, which really is a sad reflection upon music magazines. Every man and his dog have ranted on about the retro-chic joys of Daft Punk and The Avalanches, yet Trevor Jackson has quietly created the best dance album in years.
Whilst drawing on traditional influences as diverse as funk, punk, disco, hip hop and reggae the album is still so amazingly fresh and modern its makes you wonder why so many dance producers get it so terribly wrong. Every part of this album, from the collaborations to the packaging, is absolutely spot on.
The only negative thing that I could say about this album is that it makes most other dance music being released at the moment look like total bobbins!!!
