5 stars for the music. 4 for the pressing. The mids are good, but the highs a little harsh and the base could do with more oomph!

Great sound for this version. Deep bass, clear soundstage, full & alive.

For me the greatest Chic album. I would say that though, it has I Want Your Love on it which for me is a Desert Island Disc. The arrangement on that record never fails to not impress me and I still hear new elements every now and again. Also, At Last Im Free is worth mentioning too - a melody and lullaby of new beginnings and out with the old and in with the new ideals. Essential.

This album has so much rhythm. Rhythm drum, rhythm guitar, rhythm keys. The bass is the only instrument taking the lead. This has to be one of the best funk albums of all time. All you want to do is get up and dance in your living room. Repetitive rhythms that you could almost have on a loop all day. Big note to show is the mixing of this album. Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers would use this super old school compressor on their albums. This is what gives the album the pop on each beat. It's the draw in to dance. Even though musically, Chic are tight, this is a big part of their sound. It's funny seeing this sound being brought back into popularity in recent years. Bruno Mars has used it on many different occasions and we also have the likes of Jack Stratton building the "Vulf Compressor". Even though their tunes are repetitive, it doesn't get boring to the ears. A very similar effect that the modern Vaporwave/Chillwave has. Funny I mention that link as a lot of that style takes samples of classic Disco/Funk. The only exception to this repainting is "At Last I Am Free". That really does just go on and on and on. If it were a faster rhythm they may have got away with it but this is only miner criticism. Of course, it wouldn't be a Chic album if Rodger's guitar playing wasn't heard. He plays his way from the start to the finish and that's how I want it. Just as we come to the end we hear "Just one more thing. Remember the whole world's a circus, don't you be the clown". I couldn't put it better myself.

9/10

'Dance Dance Dance' and 'Everybody Dance' are the single versions, not full-length.

Under the "notes" part it is written that; "Same Tracklist And Catalog# As The C'est Chic Album But Another Album Title."
That is not exactly right. The "Trest Chic" album, which was withdrawn, has 2 more songs on its tracklist than "C'est Chic"
A5 Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah) & B5 Everybody Dance
This 2 tracks were from their previous album "Chic" (1977)

Rest in peace Bernard Edwards! Chic truly defined the funk of that era.I am so glad Nile Rodgers is still active.This album is simply super duper!

Quite an eye-opener this one, more for the album cover than the tracks. Atlantic withdrew this UK version of K50565 and replaced it with C'est Chic within a week of release. Hard to find and very very rare. The tracks are well known to true Chic fans and have stood the test of time - slick, smooth grooves, hypnotic and pure class.

Nile & Bernard really made Chic a world-wide success with the release of this album, which in my opinion was the best album they released. It spawned two of their biggest hits - Le Freak and I Want Your Love. Chic Cheer went on to be sampled by Faith Evans.
