4.5 superbNick Butler EMERITUS | November 14th 07

Fact: the first four songs on this compilation are essential to anybody interested in hip-hop or electro. ESSENTIAL. 1982's "Planet Rock" can lay claim to being rap's Year Zero - its infectious, space-age combination of Kraftwerk, Ennio Morricone, and better rapping than anybody had ever put on record before has been referenced again and again throughout rap history, and for good reason - it's one of the most significant songs of the 20th century. The three following - "Looking For The Perfect Beat", "Frantic Situation", and "Renegades of Funk" (later covered by RATM) are all as good. The remaining three tracks were new recordings for this album, and while they're not quite on the level of the first four songs, they're all good. In spite of the obviously 80s technology, this is timeless dance music, and one of the best party albums ever.
