This cd is great for background music at a party.
Pen Name
Nothing musically groundbreaking, but a great CD to dance to, and an excellent follow up to "I created Disco".

Can listen to the whole album at work without feeling bored and makes the time to pass quicker.

This is what you might have got if Gigi D'Agostino, DJ Tiesto and Mr. Iozo had a child.

It's quite different from his previous work, "I Created Disco"... I think this may be a more well rounded album than its predecessor. As mentioned, it has a different feel... more of a night-driving or discotheque feel. This can be regarded as a positive thing, I feel as though its the type of record you can put on and listen to continuously (with some exception) without the desire to skip to a different track. & dare I say more conceptual?

It's more melodic and well produced with that Euro-echo stamp laced on most of the tracks. ICD was more experimental and raw. It had more filler and arbitrary tracks... probably put in to reach requirements for a full length record. Or maybe Calvin had put too much effort into the hit singles and less emphasis on the record as a whole. Think of Daft Punk's "Homework" to "Discovery" as an analogy.

All in all, its a nice record to listen to. Calvin's skills as a producer and melody maker have clearly matured and he seems to have found a direction in which to go. It gets a little repetitive at times, it starts to sound the same... but the elements for a fun record are there. I like both his records, but RFTW tends to be a better record to play front to end.

Calvin Harris released his first album in 2007 at the age of 23 and saw near immediate success with two top ten UK singles, "Acceptable in the 80s," and "The Girls." Now, two years later, Harris is one of the biggest names in electronic dance music, competing with the likes of Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT, and Justice. His sound has a unique way of poking fun at the simplicity of retro dance music while paying homage to the style at the same time; a combination of old and new which has become irresistible in clubs.

Harris began premiering new material over a year ago in June of 2008 with the single "Dance Wiv Me" which appears on Ready for the Weekend. "Dance Wiv Me" is a bit of a departure from Harris' earlier material especially thanks to collaboration with Dizzee Rascal. While Harris' retro style remains intact, "Dance Wiv Me" proved he was capable of broadening his horizons. Although this may have made some of his biggest fans nervous, their concerns were put to rest at the beginning of this year when Harris released "I'm Not Alone," a synth heavy dance track which debuted at #1 atop the UK singles chart. A video in which Calvin Harris takes parts from many beautiful, dancing women to recreate his childhood teddy bear followed in March and had over seven million views on YouTube before the album's release on Tuesday.

While Harris' singles are always catchy and worthy of their chart topping status, with this album as well as the last, the songs chosen as singles are not, in my opinion, the best tracks on the album. With his first release, "Disco Heat" and "Colours" were the clear prominent singles for me and while "Colours" eventually became the fourth single from Harris' debut, "Disco Heat" remains untouched.

I found out about this from a YouTube video, bought it and love it to death. Very original, catchy tunes, lots of thumping bass lines, great synth textures, and witty vocals. Every tune is a keeper, every one is different and intersting. I find his stuff more interesting than most he is compared to - Daft Punk, Chemical Bros, etc. This guy is really a songwriter, not just a sampler of other peoples hooks, he creates his own magnificent hooks. It is my new guilty pleasure, buy it and enjoy!

Calvin Harris' follow-up to 2007's I Created Disco takes the theme he established with that record and expands upon it. Ready for the Weekend picks right up where Disco left off. Harris makes no bones about his love for happy, joyful, if somewhat simple, shallow music. This record is one you bump after a long day at work, cruising at night, at the pre-game, or anywhere in between.
The record starts off solidly with "The Rain". The song is awash in pianos, synths, and arrhythmic beeps and pops. The chorus reminds you that "these are the good times in your life, so put on a smile and it will be alright" which perfectly echoes the tone set by the excessive dance hooks. The title track is up next, which features layered synths and a battery of sequencers on top of a simplistic three chord progression. The sampled chorus continues with the party theme, proclaiming "I'm gonna find shoes and I'm ready for the weekend".
"Stars Come Out" starts with a heavy synth texture which is quickly followed by a popping bass line. The song quickly breaks, and the bass line falls back into the mix to make room for the verse. It returns magnificently for the chorus, which talks of being carefree and stargazing in the evening. The heavily modulated synth accent lines really make the song pop and hold your attention. There is a solid sequenced instrumental break in the middle followed by a female voice singing the title, which contributes to the overall airy feel of the song. "You Used to Hold Me" continues the run of solid tracks. It builds slowly, with just synths and heavily echoed vocals starting the song out. The hook comes in with the drum track, and it proves to be one of the catchiest on the album.
