Terranova - Hotel Amour
By Vincent PollardThe fifth album from Berlin-based Terranova, Hotel Amour sees a move into more classic dance territory, leaving behind the downtempo style of some of their past work. The album features several recent singles, including "So Strong" (with vocals from Khan), "I Want To Go Out" and standout track "Question Mark," featuring the dulcet tones of WhoMadeWho's Tomas Hoffding. A marriage of vocal house, disco and pop, it's an immediately accessible album with several decent dance floor stompers. A plethora of great vocal spots abound, with Billie Ray Martin, Snax, Udo Kier and Nicolette Krebitz guesting, in addition to Khan and Hoffding. A little fat could have been trimmed however, as despite the catchy songwriting, tight production and funky bass lines, at 13 tracks it does start to get a little wearying. The vinyl version has extra tracks for playing out, which taken a side at a time, would correct that aforementioned issue.
