3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars... the beginning of VHS or Beta October 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have come to just love VHS or Beta in recent months. I've seen them in concert a couple of times, in support of their excellent 2nd album "Night on Fire". Just recently I picked up the debut album.

First things first: the album I bought is the just rereleased "Le Funk" (originally released in 2002) which now carries the original 6 tracks, plus 3 bonus tracks (9 tracks, 60 min). "Le Funk" has the instantly recognizable VHS or Beta sound, but hey guess what, this is an instrumental album all the way through! That threw me for a loop, since "Night on Fire" is not (but for 2 songs). That said, the album has plenty of great "disco" songs from the 80s remade for the 21st century. The best of the bunch is "Solid Gold", the single from the album. After that, the 2 live tracks ("Flash" and "Teenage Dancefloor", recorded at the band's hometown venue Headliners Music Hall in Louisville) are also great. The 3 bonus tracks are remixes of the "Solid Gold", which are OK, but non-essential.

"Le Funk" is a nice introduction of VHS or Beta. But truth be told, "Night on Fire" is a much better album, and I would urge you to seek that album out. Also, if you have a chance to see VHS or Beta in concert, don't miss them! They set the place on fire with their insanely catchy set.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Band Out of Louisville.........EVER!! December 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This first release from the legendary band from Louisville Kentucky represents their mindblowing sound perfectly. It's funk/house/rock groove shakes all booty that isn't nailed down. Very reminiscent of Daft Punk and they have the rock sensability of the toughest rock of the 70s and 80s. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!! IT IS BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!! And watch for this quartet to gain fame very soon!!!!!
PLUS: 2 live tracks that are absolutly incredible!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh disco funk....with real instruments November 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I caught onto VOB after hearing "Night on Fire", and while there's a lot to love about NOF ("Nightwaves" and "No Cabaret" are personal favorites)....this album is quite different. And it has some aspects to it which are better than NOF...namely the whole French disco feel it has.

Some of the inspirations to NOF are apparent here....namely every track being an instrumental and the familiar spacy aura to each song, but it just plays on this band's strengths. They are excellent musicians who can hook together a great disco tune, and make it sound real and very alive. There's an intensity and relentlessness to this music which makes it feel different than music coming from a machine. The opening track "Heaven" is simply one of the most beautiful tracks I have heard in a long time....it has the ability to sound like the past, while allowing me to know full well that it is recent work.

I very much recommend this if you liked NOF....it won't be the same though...it will sound more raw, but it will still sound good.

I LOVE this CD...there really is no "classification" of this music. It is so fresh and new, so much variety yet consistency of intense and gently flowing sound. Bring home the sound of the new generation before it comes to you. I recommend this CD to everyone. god bless america.

5.0 out of 5 stars the music the music November 11, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ok....i'm so sick of reading reviews about bands where some idiot has talk about the clothes the band is wearing. go listen to justin timberlake and hang out with your fashion experts and quit trashing everyone. although this music might not be for you, i happen to think that there is so much more going on in vob's music than "roland drum machines".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD! August 21, 2012
By Marco
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Probably one of their best albums! I have been jamming to this cd non stop since I got it. I had the cd once before but friends kept asking to borrow it and I eventually lost it and I can understand why. Every song jams and its my go to cd when I'm driving to work. Yes, I know that VHS or Beta has come out with other CD's however this is one of my favorite and I imagine if you pick it up, it will be yours too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Music June 22, 2010
By Branden
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those post-rock-with-an-80s-flare fans of VHS or Beta, this album is fun. I've had all the VOB stuff on my iPod for a long time now, and this "Le Funk" album has gotten the most plays. Less "pop"ish than their later albums, Le Funk is nonetheless filled with solid music that's always fun to listen to.

As the last few tracks drag into one Solid Gold version after another, that gets a little bit tiresome, but the beginning half of the album makes up for that.

In my opinion, there's no reason for a VOB fan to skip this album, and doing so would be doing yourself a disservice.
