Released:16 September 2013 (Ultra Records)
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Daft Punk's latest album, Random Access Memories, where the Parisian electro pioneers turned back the clock and released an album full of summer anthems, laden with the guitar work of Nile Rodgers and Paul Jackson Jr. (whose work can be found all over Micheal Jackson’s Thriller). This new LP from “Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo”, serves as the anti-thesis to RAM, which chooses to manhandle your eardrums and shove them down a wind-tunnel instead of serenade them with smooth disco grooves.
The album kicks off with Spank, a collaboration with Tai & Bart B More, which was released in February 2013. Out of all of the tracks that make up the new album, this one sounds closest to Rifo’s first album Romborama. It is loud, obnoxious electro at its best, the typical Dim Mak sound, but it throws a curveball towards the latter half of the song, with a short piano interlude, followed by a string accompaniment, building back up to the chorus, displaying Rifo’s training as a classical musician, and really giving the track some depth, distancing it from the branding of “EDM”.
The second track on the album is Raw, featuring the talents of Mötley Crüe founder and drummer Tommy Lee. This track really shows off Rifo’s heavier influences, which didn’t really shine through on Romborama, but showed up on Rifoki, Bob’s hardcore punk project with Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki. The track certainly lives up to it’s namesake, overflowing with crash symbols, distorted guitars and unusual time signatures. The track even takes time to gently tease the re-emergence of disco, featuring a dramatic change in style, where the track segues into a disco breakdown, featuring Tommy exclaiming “Woah Bob what the fuck is this? fucking disco music? you can’t be serious this is fucking bullshit, what’s next Bob? some cheesy little fucking leap synth?” and of course, Rifo obliges with just that. If this had been on any other album this sort of change of pace would have felt out of place and clunky, but on this album, it feels right at home.
Out of Sight, the album’s 6th track is definitely the biggest surprise, featuring Paul McCartney, as well as Paul’s fellow Fireman Martin Glover, using his Youth persona. Those more familiar with McCartney having written Hey Jude, might be wondering what the hell he’s doing working with Rifo, but this track dispels any confusion, these two working together is as good as Kanye West & Justin Vernon, or Kid Cudi & Crookers. 
My personal favourite from the album is, unfortunately, also one of the shortest. Clocking in at only 2 minutes and 53 seconds, is Please Baby, a collaboration with Patrick “P-Thugg" Gamayel, of Chromeo fame. This track is, in the simplest terms possible, like a hyped up Chromeo track, it shows off Patrick’s typical talkbox madness and synth-playing, but rather than accompanying Dave1’s smooth vocals, it’s at the forefront of the music, backed up by Bob’s shuddering electro.
Rocksteady is another suprising track on the album, because it’s not Rocksteady. “What the fuck is he talking about?” I hear you ask. Well this version of Rocksteady, is not the song that was released back in 2012, but is in fact a re-edited version of the Gigi Barocco remix, who shows up on the album’s closing track, a ear-shattering trash metal / electro hybrid that destroys any idea that this album wasn’t incredible. Presumably, Bob thought that Gigi's remix was even better than the original, and turned it into the final album edit, the extended opening and altered drop make this re-edit one of the strongest tracks on the album.
The album’s closing track, a proper collaboration with Gigi Barocco, Volevo Un Gatto Nero (You Promised Me), is quite frankly, insanity. Starting off with a children’s choir, the song suddenly becomes something not unlike what would happen if Kill Em All-era Metallica decided that they really needed Skrillex to spice up their new album. And i’ll fight anyone who says that this song doesn’t impress them, because Bob has certainly saved the best until last.
The rest of the album features appearances from, electro’s first lady, Greta Svabo Bech, as well as man of the moment Theophilus London, and talkbox pioneer Peter Frampton, who all bring their own flair to the album, but ultimately, this album works best if listened to as a whole, much like Justice's †or The Prodigy's Fat Of The Land.
This is definitely one of my album’s of the year, a huge recommendation, if you hadn’t guessed that already.
