The debut album from the absolutely fantastic Slovenian act Videosex.

Let's get started!

Detektivska Priča is a definite statement of intent, with a fast paced New Wave vibe coupled with some crazy Arthur Brown style organ stabs and James Bond-esqe pads.

Yeah, really!

Ana starts off very cool, almost reggae in feel (not in rhythm). It really lures you in, with the wonderful vocals, until the chorus kicks in and then you are swept into euphoria!

It's a wonderful track, which drops and rises constantly so you are always excited.

Moja Mama is the track that most people reading this will be familiar with. It was a big hit for Videosex, their first in fact.

It's irresistible, yet somehow it sounds out of sync with the rest of the Videosex catalogue. It's the most perfect Eurovision song ever! With a melody that will stay with you forever (you WILL wake up with this song in your head once you hear it), it's hard to ignore it even though Videosex are definitely worth much more than this song.

U Sjeni Egzotičnih Trava brings the tempo down, into a nice relaxing vibe. It contains nice touches, but it's really background music. You never really pay attention to it (maybe you will if you've had a smoke, eh?).

1001 Noć is a really Arabic sounding track, lots of minor scales and eastern percussion. If you had a smoke during U Sjeni Egzotičnih, you'll be in heaven now haha!

Kako Bih Volio Da Si Tu starts off in a very Jean Michel Jarre style, before male vocals come in along with a fast tempo New Wave vibe.

It's a very welcome return to fast music after the slow songs we just enjoyed.

Next is Videosex, the song. It's really superb. With a midtempo vibe and sexy vocals, you really get carried along in this song. I don't even speak Slovene but the female singer sounds very enticing! It's not a cheesy song though, it's really cool and a pleasure to dance to.

Finally we have Neonska Reklama 1 / 2.

The first is a very catchy New Wave track again, perhaps slower than we had before but still full of melody, wonderful singing and classy synth work.

The second Neonska Reklama part is an extended electro track, which really sounds fresh. Not only does it owe a lot to the American Electro scene, but also the amazing New York Hi-NRG sound made famous by Bobby "O". This track pays great homage to both the classic American sounds.

I think it's great that thanks to the internet and spread-of-word, Anglophones are at last able to discover this great music.

Because, of course, music (and not words) is all we need know. ;)
