Worth it for the cover of Martin Circus's Disco Circus alone. Proper dancefloor worker.

Funny to see both ends of the like/dislike spectrum here... I'm definitely on the "like" side! Sure he can't make another "It's Album Time" and with this, he didn't. He picked four of his favorite classic disco tunes to cover and, boy, did he pick some ragers! These originals all scream for the Todd Terje treatment. They all have shimmering and uplifting melodies and he brought them back to life! Record two is a bit harder and has more machine-like production on the remixes but it's all about the original Terje covers here. Any track slides perfectly into a new or old disco mix or even a house mix. "Baby, do you want a bump...?" I assure you, the crowd does!

Early candidate for album of the decade, I didn't think he could do better than "It's Album Time" but here it is. 6/5

Todd's worst record so far... It's all in all underwhelming. It lacks the "fun" of other Todd records but is also not effective as in terms of being danceable. Got my copy and sold it again immediately.
