This CD owes alot to the sound of 80's Italo Disco, it has been updated and made fresh, Very Reminiscent of Valerie Dore
records in the 80's. As a big fan of Italo Disco, I really enjoy
this CD.

I can't believe this isn't available yet, totally insane. Probably the best album I've heard this year hands down. It's a little 80's but with some extra pep. Also if Madonna still did her 80's pop synth stuff, it would be this, Sally works with this guy Johan Agebjorn, he's a genius, I found some of his stuff on myspace but basically has yet to officially release an album, this is more great stuff from Sweden and this guy really nails it, paired up with her sweet lulluby voice they are quite a team on par with The Knife. Not as dark though, more like if you were trapped in the 80's movie Tuff Turf where James Spader in the beginning is riding his bike through the streets at night this is what would be playing. So bust out them cassette walkmans and bump it. Stroll down the street in the middle of the night, or just join a dance class and bring this with you, ask the dance teacher to teach you to dance to this, no matter what mood or style of music you like, it'll make you jump up and move to the music, pheeeee nominal!!!!!!

Sally Shapiro's "Disco Romance" album is a lilting and introspective piece of work - which sounds like an odd way to describe a disco album, but it somehow manages to maintain a glacial calm and a hint of sadness in every single track, even when the BPM's are pretty fast and the drum machine is churning out robotic beats for all it's worth. Essentially a project by Swedish musician Johan Agebjorn, it's unlikely that the artist "Sally Shapiro" herself is the driving force behind it, especially as there have been no personal appearances or live performances by her to promote the album.

Perhaps it's because of this odd mix that the album stands up as a real curiosity. The style of the music harks back to the synthesized dance sound of Italo Disco: simple electronic dance music with rolling bass lines and hypnotically repetitive percussion. While this style of instrumentation is almost impossible to date, you probably wouldn't ever mistake it for a vintage 1980's production, because although it does share a lot of the same qualities, the singing style places it firmly in modern territory. I've listened to a lot of Italo Disco and if there's one thing they did with their vocals, its that they delivered them in earnest. Sally Shapiro's singing style on the other hand, is dreamy and directionless, sounding almost too measuredly insubstantial to be taken at face value. Although pleasant on the ear, to me it places the album firmly in the self-aware ballpark, and one thing about Italo Disco was that it was not knowingly designed to appeal to a cult audience, it just turned out that way.
