Well, the commercial was made by your own network, so just send them a mail they're waisting their money.

I know my english is far from perfect, but as far as I know 'Brilliant!' is still positive appraisal...

And yet it doesn't seem like I made myself very clear: the whole flashmob idea is fantastic because they pulled it of, and you don't need to have been there to appreciate it. The film works because everyone recognises at least half of the songs in there and is too enthralled by the whole happening to notice some people dancing out of sync.

I do have a problem with them 'milking' the idea on a medium not suitable for this, without the audio, without the full experience, without the story and the background,...

I don't know whether the decision to air the short crap version on the CBS network was an agency or a client one.

And I'm not sure what you are implying either: I shouldn't criticise media strategy or work if it comes from Saatchi?

Ears & Feet

  • Beyond The Wizards Sleeve: Beyond The Wizards Sleeve Ark 1
    Erol Alkan and Richard Norris on a psychedelic trip with Kraut- and Postrock influences all over. Great stuff but a tad harder to find, check out the Rough Trade webstore if you're interested.
  • Various Artists -

    Various Artists: Kitsune Maison Vol.6
    Latest in an excellent series, with highlights from Lo-Fi-Fnk and Grovesnor (a great Hot Chip remix)

  • Various Artists -

    Various Artists: Ed Rec Vol.3
    Pedro Winter and the boys from the Ed Banger label are still very much alive. Some purists might try and tell you otherwise but they've still got it. Not for the neurotics among us though.

  • Hollywood Mon Amour -

    Hollywood Mon Amour: Hollywood Mon Amour
    I'd never take this out on the basis of the tracklist, but the female vocals and the attention to detail to every last song on here makes it into something truly fantastic.

  • Rodrigo Y Gabriela -

    Rodrigo Y Gabriela: Rodrigo Y Gabriela [CD + DVD]
    Oooh, fantastic! Sexy sweet latin american guitar sounds, but uptempo with a tight rhythm and more than enough balls.

  • Boys Noize -

    Boys Noize: Bugged Out Presents Suck My Deck: Mixed By Boys Noize
    Excellent overview of some of the hottest stuff from the past years (with some rare, reworked classics dropped in for good measure). If you want to get a taste of what a dirty dancefloor can offer today, this is a fantastic place to start...

  • Carl Craig -

    Carl Craig: Sessions
    Still going strong after so many years, and this (rare) compilation makes it that much clearer. And 'throw' will get you every time...

  • Hercules & Love Affair -

    Hercules & Love Affair: Hercules and Love Affair
    Ooooh, disco as it should be... Do check out the Frankie Knuckles remix of Blind as well.

  • Alter Ego -

    Alter Ego: Why Not ?!
    Funhouse techno redefined. Completely bonkers and all the better for it.

  • Daft Punk -

    Daft Punk: Alive 2007
    If you had not noticed, I love this album... this is Daft Punk at their best. Harder, faster, better than a normal album, and the crowd noise just makes it better
