    Is not bad, but sounds to much like a copy of hot chip to me.

    I'm pretty annoyed by the whole electronic dance revival thing in general, but this one in particular bothers me because it's not only been touted as somehow special and different but also as a worthy companion Health's debut, an album I really enjoyed. This is just another unnecessary remix album, and there is absolutely nothing remarkable about it. The fact that Health I'm pretty annoyed by the whole electronic dance revival thing in general, but this one in particular bothers me because it's not only been touted as somehow special and different but also as a worthy companion Health's debut, an album I really enjoyed. This is just another unnecessary remix album, and there is absolutely nothing remarkable about it. The fact that Health songs (borderline noise-rock) provide the building blocks for these tracks don't make the generic dance beats any more interesting, especially when they have generic, retro synths layered onto them. I've spent some time with this one, trying to appreciate it on some level, but I've found myself just wanting my time and money back. The only decent track is probably the Crystal Castles remix of "Crimewave". Expand

  1. For all its maximalist glory, DISCO is remarkably nuanced, minor elements seamlessly shifting in and out of frame behind the compositions’ vibrant foregrounds.
  2. Album two may see an outline of refinement established, but for now their doldrums meanderings are more exhilarating than many acts’ most-accomplished must-haves, making this a two-from-two contender for a top-ten year-end finish.
  3. Totally cohesive and thoroughly bangin’.
