CD Reviews

Giorgio Is Ready For The 80's
Andre S. Grindle | Brewer Maine | 06/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On the first day of the first month of the first year of the new 1980's decade,Eurodisco pioneer presents what is (to my knowledge) the first completely live in the studio digital recording;later known as DDD on some late 80's CD's.But this was back when vinyl and various tapes were the only game in town so Moroder really mixes this album hot!The first five songs are basically one long Eurodisco style suite-utilizing the same general techniques you'll find on Kraftwerk and Donna Summer albums of this period (Computer World sounds GREAT alongside this) but Moroder,fresh off of work with Summer chooses a far livelier,more melodic approch with piles of female vocals and vocorder.The style couldn't be more Munich.The final title cut is actually a very interesting song-somewhat polyrhythm for such a disco based recording.Of course the two major selling points of 'E=MC2' is how unlike so much commercial disco this never sounds like product;of a certain time now and then but also far ahead of it's time-those listening to music of the early 21'st century will note how remarkably ahead of it's time this is (the same can be said for Kraftwerk).But the most interesting part of this is the bonus cuts;"Love In You,Love In Me" actually sounds like a pure digitized pop single (not disimilar to "Funkytown" in many ways) and the other "Evolution" is just stunning-a 15 minute hypnotic electronic metranome featuring an array of synthesizers (one of which has got to be the Clavitar) and has the funkiest disco rhythm of anything else here.I don't know if Giorgio Moroder was the very first person to give electronic dance music any kind of human personality.But even if not personality is certainly something this album has in abundance."
