Album Review

On his aptly named debut album Production, hot French producer Mirwais marries the stylish playfulness of contemporaries like Air and Daft Punk with an even more direct pop sensibility. Not only does this explain why he was the ideal choice to produce the bulk of Madonna's Music — in fact, that album's best track, the brittle ballad "Paradise (Not for Me)," is included here — but it also results in a collection of songs that are as clever and intelligently crafted as they are danceable.

Despite its name, Production has much more than pristine sonics in its favor.
