Album Review

Colette is both a highly celebrated house DJ and a startlingly fine singer who generally works in a house-electro style. But the release of her second album generated such a buzz that she began touring with a full band, which is a good thing — as good as she sounds in a fully electronic setting, a human ensemble would give her even more flexibility.

But the album's finest moment is arguably its first, the club hit "About Us," on which Colette delivers a sharp kiss-off to an inexplicably careless lover. Very highly recommended.
