  • Summary: The veteran Chicago house producer offers up 16 tracks of modernized 80's electro (think Daft Punk or Ladytron), highlighted by "Silver Screen (Shower Scene)." The album picked up a great deal of acclaim in the UK when it was released in mid-2001, and finally secured U.S. distribution (through Emperor Norton) in early 2002. Expand

    Might already have an inside shot to be the best record of 2002 here in the states.

    The work of a genuine individualist. [Aug 2001, p.108]
  3. A masterful bricolage that revisits the crossroads of early-'80s clubland without ever settling for cheap pastiche.
  4. The music here is never outright parody, and there's evidence that real work went into creating this record -- it isn't a lightweight effort designed to cash in on retro-trendiness.
  5. Whilst Daft Punk's elaborate practical joke of an album, Discovery, reeked of childish trying-too-hard elitism, Felix's party is both exclusive and enjoyable, sharing a sense of humour and musical ethos with Scouse synthesiser aficionados Ladytron.
  6. Suggests Kraftwerk crashing a party at the Playboy Mansion.
  7. Kittenz and Thee Glitz is Housecat watered down by trivia and outside egos.

    Viciously cool and glitzy indeed. Perfect pop for catwalkers. And the record breathes a true statement: sex, drugs and rock and roll are over.... everybody wants to be Hollywood... Expand
