Easily one of the best albums i've heard in years, Tessio is possibly the best electronic song ever, what do you think?
seem to have made this thread disappear, but anyway yeh it's amazing and definitely best thing he's done, but I had Whistleblower on yesterday and that's amazing as well, from a quite different angle.
prob b/c I overplayed Vocalcity far too often, but I'd have to say The Present Lover is my favorite release by him (and it even has another version of Tessio on it)
It's a shame that nothing else he's done lives up to it. Every Luomo album since has been pretty bland and the version of Tessio on the Present Lover is an absolute atrocity.
It's interesting when you read that apparently he hadn't actually listened to any house before making the first Luomo tunes, it's like he had an instinctive understanding about what kind of music it should be and it feels like he's totally over thought and overworked all Luomo stuff since.
I really don't like your second clause though.
I'd always listen to this. That "the way you move" song makes for great jogging music.
