It seemed to take forever, but it's finally here!!,
This review is from: George Is on (Audio CD)
Over a year after their smash hit Flashdance, Deep Dish finally releases the artist album to put it on!
We start off with 2 Morel sung tracks (and I have to point out right away that I was never a big fan of Morel's voice) that are both very, very good. Deep Dish have come up with the melody and lyrics to make even the annoying Morel sound very agreeing. His voice is very different from anything in any music genre, but they have found a way to mesh it very nicely here.
Track 3 needs no introduction. Track 4, the instrumental house track Swallow Me, is one of the best tracks on the CD. Track 5 is another track by the singer of Flashdance, and it's decent, but nothing as special as Flashdance or the superb new single Say Hello (track 7).
Track 6, suprisingly, is another good Morel track (I think I'm actually starting to like this guy now). Track 8 is very puzzling, as it's basically just an updated remix of Stevie Nicks' Dreams. Not sure why it was made, so I just scratch my head and listen to it, as it's actually pretty decent. Now, track 10 is called Sexy Ill and track 8 is called Dub Shepherd, but I think they names got switched because Dub Shepherd is the sexy track, with the breathy vocals, and Sexy Ill is the first of the 2 tracks on the CD I dislike. It's an old school sounding instrumental which does nothing for me.
Sergio's theme (a nice ambient track), and the Dubfire sung In Love With a Friend are up next, and the CD unfortunately ends on a sour note to me, the Dire Straits/Flashdance mix. I grew up with the original Money for Nothing song, which is a classic rock tune of it's time, and I don't think it has any place being mixed with Flashdance. It sounds very, very odd to me.
As a bonus, you get a 2nd CD with remixes of their two singles and both videos.
An artist album by anyone with 11 out of 13 tracks being above average is exceptional, even more so for a the house music genre. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
