Good selection of music on this CD. It is upbeat without becoming repetitive. I like to crank it when driving in my car.
A disappointment . . .

""George Is On" is the long awaited follow up to Deep Dish's first LP "Junk Science." Unfortunately Sharam's excitement depicted on the album cover doesn't translate to the music. I'm not sure what the problem is, but the music is just sort of uninspired.
The biggest indicator is that the "big tune" and first single of the album, "Flashdance", is not nearly as catchy as they think it is. If the major track on the album isn't just incredibly strong, that doesn't speak well for the rest of the album. The song is not bad and some parts are cool, the endlessly repeating guitar riff is not 'rockin' enough to carry the song. "Say Hello", the other standout, also underperforms. The rest of the tracks are even less memorable. The production is fine and the CD sounds good, but it's so musically uninspiring that nothing really stands out.
To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of progressive house (or whatever you want to call it), but I enjoy it when it's well done. This is the sort of album that die-hard house fans might enjoy, but for those who only buy a few albums per year in this style should avoid it. I would instead recommend checking out Deep Dish's Global Underground DJ sets, or buying "Junk Science" if you don't have it already. It's disappointing to be giving a Deep Dish CD such a negative review, but it's just not worth buying."
