CD Reviews

Only for the true Disco lover, not the fakes
Sweet Luvin | Capital of the World, New York, New York | 10/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had forgotten about this incredible gem until one night recently at a NYC niteclub the DJ started spinning "That's the Meaning". The crowd and the vibe were hysterical in what was an orgasmic aureal of layered sounds and beats. If your disco favorites are Donna Summer and Peaches and Herb I suggest you skip this and continue on in an unelightened vein, however, if you want to hear what was REALLY played at Studio then this is for you! You just can't get any closer to the velvet rope than this!"
One of the best albums of Eurodisco

"Producer Boris Midney makes hard beats orbit and swirl around - very spatial and seductive. The music inclines toward abstraction in "Boogie Motion" and "Make That Feeling Come Again". Midney's emphasis is on the melodies rather than on the lyrics, especially in "Make That Feeling Come Again". The album's Music pluses and virtues by far outweigh the numerous drawbacks of everything and anything pertaining to the lyrics. This album is one of Midney's finest."
Gorgeous, under-appreciated music

"Boris Midney, one of the most inspired of disco producers, released records under many names but it is this one, Beautiful Bend, that I think stands as his most accomplished production. The four "songs" are different in mood and intensity, yet blend seamlessly into one another, the peak being the stunning, symphonic "Make That Feeling Come Again!" This record may well have been a significant influence on much of today's dance music, except that Midney combines the machine-made rhythms and synths with real percussion, strings, vocals, and knockout melodies. The album is a nearly flawless example of how old-school disco reveled in the new technology while retaining the warmth and glow of the human touch. This is electronic disco that sounds made by people, not machines. "Beautiful Bend" is full of ideas and melodic changes, not just one hiccupping riff. "Make That Feeling Come Again!" swirls and builds and breaks, only to swirl and build again, like ocean waves, and features two incredibly beautiful melodic hooks. I bought this record when it was new in 1978, and I have played it consistently through all the years in between. The CD re-mastering is excellent."
