Album Review

Bumcello's third album in as many years, Nude for Love follows what has become a recipe for Vincent Segal and Cyril Atef: pop music laced with rai, strings, and an elaborate (some would say labored) studio production. The resulting tunes hold appeal to both European club dancers and the living-room listener. But whenever Bumcello aims for the dancefloor, the cluttered multi-tracking dulls the impact of the music.

The kind of genre-blending Bumcello aims for borders dangerously on artistic pretension and the vein of humor present throughout the album is what prevents the ship from sinking down. ~ François Couture, Rovi
