One facet of Midney's genius remains intact
(3 out of 5 stars)
"By 1981, when Boris Midney released his "Companion" project, he had almost hit the barrel's bottom of his inspiration - as far as dance music is concerned - and by the time he had produced this work (1982) he had none. The spotlight of Midney's genius here is on his ability to rearrange and cover his own songs in a fashion that makes them fun to be listened to and appreciated and by no means less important - to be danced to. This comment refers to "Living Up To Love" and "Step On Out" which featured on his previous album, "Companion". The versions on this album are an improvement over the versions of "Companion". These two songs have a more disco feel, as opposed to being funkier on the previous album.Midney wrote, all by himself, two tracks:
"Thanks For Loving Me" isn't a danceable track; It is certainly
charming regardless of its great distance from dance or disco music. Its tempo is rather slow. This track isn't on my favorite's list."D-D-D-Dance" has bizarre qualities; it is lightyears ahead of its time - it actually seems like the prototype of Trance! (or the related styles of the 1990's). Notwithstanding that, I hate this track and cannot stand listening to it. Two twin mixes which are two variations on a single theme open this Midney project. I think the first one ("East Side Mix") is artistically preferable to the second one and I also enjoy it much more than the second one. Midney collaborated with vocalist Katharine Meyer and another artist in writing these mixes. The end-result isn't bad. To sum up, regardless of my personal dislikes I have outlayed, I recommend purchasing this disc, though it cannot be considered a disco work."
