Best of 2008: #2 - Hercules and Love Affair: S/T

Hey everybody, disco is back. Thanks to Hercules and Love Affair, in 2008 the music world got it's collective groove back, and learned to shake it to those disco house sounds again. Antony (of the Johnsons) turns in a star turn on the record too, possibly showing that full on disco-divaism is a role he suits better than that of morose troubadour. Singles such as 'Blind' and 'You Belong' have set the pace, and have shown true crossover potential, while 'Hercules' Theme' and 'Athene' have found their way into many an end of year best of. Can the band ever record an album as complete as this again? The jury might be out on that, but for a real reflection on where dance music was at in 2008, then this serves as its best document. A triumph.
