If Stardust ever were to create an album, this is how it would sound like

Amazing! I highly recommend this. Alan Braxe and Fred Falke are a match made in heaven. I agree with BalooDP though, Chrystal City definitely should have been included, even just so it doesn't have to be all lonely in my iTunes library.

A great collection of Alan Braxe's mainly synth-pop work from over the years. There's all of his great hits here with the people he's collaborated with over the years, such as Music Sounds Better With You, Intro, In Love with You, and Vertigo, plus a bunch of other good songs that you may or may not have heard. Not every track here is a good one however, for example the rap song Links 'n' Rings isn't really good at all and doesn't fit the album whatsoever, and Love Lost falls a bit flat compared to other tracks that could have been put on here instead. I wish Chrystal City and Horizon (both by Alan Braxe and Fred Falke) had made it on here instead of those two tracks, but oh well. The rest of the album is great though. If you like Alan Braxe and French House, this is a great album to pick up, no doubt about it.

The only interessting thing of this record is to have a kind of discography from Alan Braxe, the tracks are very good alone, but hearing them one after the other don't give anything really strong. I think tracks like "Intro" or "Music Sounds Better With You" have taken a dimension so important separately that it make impossible putting them one after the other whithout doing something strange, a kind of clash.

"The Upper Cuts" will probably be one of my favourite House records of 2005. This compilation gathers most of the tracks Alan Braxe worked on in the past years, including Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You". Most of the time, you will find yourself projected back in the 1980's with interesting Electro samples. "Rubicon", for example, includes replayed elements of "Rhythm Man" performed by St. Regis, and originally featured in the movie "The Karate Kid". "Most Wanted" will please any New Wave nostalgic. "Arena" samples various sounds from live concerts (including cheerful crowds). "Intro" could still ravage any dancefloor today. The only song I don't like is "Link 'n' Rings" by Rec, an unconvincing vocal Hip Hop attempt. In all, "The Upper Cuts" is certainly a must have if you like French touch flavoured records.
