We've been 'a‑grooving' to Tiesto's 'Kaleidoscope' for precisely seven days and, do you know what, despite suffering slightly from what it's fair to call 'Rudebox Bloat' there's a great twelve-track album here fighting to get out. The Tegan & Sara, Calvin Harris and Kele Okereke tracks are among the highlights but the tracks without guests are just as important to the album and if anything the proliferation of featured artists slightly dilutes the album's vision — obviously it's very important to chase a sense of 'legitimacy' and to provide people with 'an angle' but sometimes the album feels a little like it's chasing approval from people whose approval really doesn't matter. A bit like the worst bits of the Chemical Brothers 'oevre'. All of which sounds a bit moany but isn't meant to be because this album is, basically, top notch.
Here's the expensive-looking but ultimately fairly ropey video for the Sneaky Sound System collaboration 'I Will Be There', which we had as a Song Of The Day a few weeks ago.
We're sure the treatment was very persuasive.
