Boomkat Product Review
Welcome to one of the year's maddest disco sessions. Having made one of the "most influential disco albums of all time" Black Devil Disco Club is afforded some stellar cameos for 'Circus', featuring the likes of Nancy bleeding' Sinatra (!), Afrika Bambaataa, Faris Badwan ov The Horrors and Italo legend, Nancy Fortune among them. Sometimes when an album comes laden with guest vocalists, it means they're trying to cover up sh*t songs, but not so with this. Each appearance just feels right, from Nancy Fortune's pirouetting cadences over 'Pavement Opposite', to Farris Badwan's array of druggy slurs and febrile scatting on the NRGetic drama of 'Distrust' or Nancy Sinatra paired to the luxuriant arpeggiations of 'To Ardent'. For a producer who's been at it this long, Bernard Fevre's productions have lost none of their vitality.
