Super Stelar!

Literally, in the first 45 seconds, I knew I was going to love this record.  I was instantly excited about the fact that it’s a double-disc album!

To begin, the title track, ‘Coco’, sets the mood exactly right. The enticing guest vocals from Austrian singer Lilja Bloom relieve that cringe you get when a song starts out sweet, but you’re afraid either a)the vocals are gonna screw it up or b)the lyrics are gonna screw it up or c)both, which sadly is generally the case.  Not in this case, Lilja’s voice is just what you need and wish to hear.

From there, you are taken through an electro-adventure!  Trip-hop, hip-hop, funk, electronica, you name it, it’s there, all wrapped nicely in one double-disc album called ‘Coco’, from a man who’s name isn’t far too popular in the US at this time…..  But at this time next year, I wouldn’t be so sure.

My suggestion:  Give this entire album a go if you’re about to take a long road trip by yourself.  Once you’ve played it, play it again.  Once you’ve done that, you’ll be hooked!  Well done Parov….
