EDITORS’ NOTES

“Disco disappeared, didn’t it? Everyone got sick of it. Now I’m reviving it, with space goggles, or something.” So says 23-year old Scotsman Calvin Harris, who allegedly created this collection of ‘80s-styled dance numbers on an “ancient” Amiga computer in his bedroom. Ok, MySpace stories and label hype aside, this guy is a wizard and if you don’t believe us, just try to resist tracks like “The Girls” or “Acceptable in the ‘80s” with their glossy synths, crisp percussion and perfectly paced BPMs. Slow it down a tad and invite Beck and LCD to the party with “Merrymaking at My Place,” and “Vegas.”  Clever lyrics abound, complete with cheeky nods to naughty nightclubbing rituals. But you’ve been warned: you’ll be doing the bump to “Disco Heat” before you’ve had a chance to spit-polish those silver vintage platforms in the back of your closet.

This is what Kanye is trying to do with that Daft punk song

Who cares about 50 cent and Kanye when you have this album. Kills both of them. I will remember songs from this album and ill forget most of 50 and Kanye album. This album is timeless. Just u wait.

Calvin is a producer--NOT a singer

Yes, he is a pro-du-cer. he produced all these songs. and he sings, too. but the genius is in the producing, not really the vocals. in case you were planning on complaining about the tracks were he doesn't even sing in them.
Moving on...calvin is a genius. my top five (i tried to name the best songs but ended up naming almost the whole album):
-the girls
-acceptable in the 80's
-vegas
-i created disco (my favorite)
-disco heat (the "OWW!" makes me laugh)
