  1. I Created Disco is not only the title of Harris' full-length debut, it's also the title of a track on the album that threatens to depose Justice from their perch on high.
  2. I Created Disco feels renegade, and that's what makes it more than irresistibly fun synth-pop.
  3. The bulk of the record follows suit, with straightforward club songs, none too obtuse.

    His is an intrepid sound, taut and gorgeous. [Oct 2007, p.92]
  5. I Created Disco is a fun and mostly very listenable pop record which satisfies the modest ambitions it sets for itself.
  6. Harris has distilled all of the synth-popping, amp-busting sounds of electroclash and disco-punk into a complete set of proper pop uppers.

    Throw in some straight, viscerally melodic vocals and a few cool, smart, electro-pop and digi-funk sing-alongs and you have a classic four-song EP--if not an entire album. [Sep/Oct 2007, p.129]

    This is an indie rocker introducing great disco to a bunch of beer drinkers. [Nov 2007, p.150]

There's really cool sounds that come out of this album but I like hearing him sing better than most noise. Best tracks in my opinion: Acceptable in the 80's, The Girls, I Created Disco Full Review »

    It was a time when Calvin was still a creative DJ. I won't say if it's better than Ready For The Weekend or not but it's definitely more riskyIt was a time when Calvin was still a creative DJ. I won't say if it's better than Ready For The Weekend or not but it's definitely more risky than 18 Months and a lot less commercial than Motion. It was the beginning of a huge growth for Harris but I would prefer he keeps this style. The best songs from this album are: Neon Rocks, Vegas, Love For You and Love Souvenir. Full Review »
