Rated By Regan
After a number of collaborations with fellow Norwegian Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and more remixes than Alex Ferguson has trophies, Prins Thomas releases his first full-length solo album of balearic disco. All is dreamy lethargy here, bar the odd outbreak of sequenced squelching, there to remind us that this is electronic dance music and not an experimental Chris Rea side-project. Melody and groove are secondary, and as for conventional song structure – forget it, because everything gets lost in an echoey miasma. Despite all that, the compositions do retain the capacity to beguile – if you have the time to let them.
