  Fierce Angel prove that "house is disco's revenge"....

| | See all Truecolours's reviews (45)

Legendary producer Frankie Knuckles once said that "house music is disco's revenge" and this fantastic album certainly provides ample evidence of that. If you are a fan of the Salsoul / sound of Philadelphia style of disco then you are likely to love the majority of tracks on CDs 1 & 2. In particular, Bob Sinclar's 'Champs Elysees Theme' and Hi On Life's 'Goodbye' are perfect examples of how the warmth and melody of disco can be ramped up with a house bassline without losing any of the disco magic. Most of the tracks here are heavy on disco strings, have uplifting lyrics and powerful female vocals. Standout is the stunning 'Love Is The Music' by FR featuring Jenny - which is the best example I've yet to hear of how to incorporate gospel, disco and house into a coherent whole. Fierce Angel have put together an excellent collection of tracks and the packaging is, as always, stylish (and should be congratulated for being celebratory as opposed to the cheap, arguably misogynistic images used by other compilations). Any fan of tuneful, positive dance music should purchase this album.
