CD Reviews

Classic House Album
Daftpfnk | Tulsa, OK | 03/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You need not listen to any disses regarding this album on here, its the real deal. Funky house in the highest order and an instant classic upon its release in 99, Cassius' 1999 album was probably the last truely classic French house artist album to be released during the french phenomenon. Alongside Daft's Homework, Etienne De
Crecy's Super Discount album, and Bob Sinclar's Paradise, 1999 will be remembered as a classic. By the way, this album is HOUSE music, not Air, so keep that in mind instead of broadly categorizing all french music."
Pretty good but not perfect

"When it comes to electronica music, France really has breathed new air into one of my favorite genres of music. I love Air, Dimitri From Paris, Rinocerose (well their first album anyways), and Daft Punk (of course). Unfortunately I could not get into Cassius. No matter how hard I tried, I could not get into Cassius's "1999". The songs lacked the funkiness of Daft Punk or the intricate melodies of Air. The group's choice of samples were interesting to say the very least. I don't see very often an artist who would sample from '70s blaxploitation flick "Foxy Brown" like Cassius did on "Foxxy". Unfortunately what didn't really groove with me was the fact that the beats in most of the songs sounded too repetitive. I liked "Feeling For You", "La Mouche", "Foxxy" and "Cassius Remix '99" but otherwise this album didn't leave much of an impression on me, neither bad nor good. And when an album doesn't leave much an impression on me you know that isn't a good sign."
Allright, but not exellent

"Cassius is another french dance group, they surely make some nice dance music. Feeling For You, Crazy Legs and
LaMouche are all suberb dance tunes, the best song of the Cd is defenitely "Cassius 99" but actually it was the remix that was the one released on single. Cassius produces Funky-dance music at it's best, unfortunately many songs are fillers and almost sound the same. I think 16 songs are way too much, ok Cd anyway. For the good tunes i mentioned it's defenitely worth buying the Cd."
