He’s taken his time, but finally Norwegian nu-disco legend Todd Terje has delivered a debut album befitting his immense talents. While there are plenty of examples of his vibrant, synth-heavy dancefloor style on It’s Album Time – see “Delorean Dynamite”, “Inspector Norse”, “Strandbar” and the Lindstrom-ish grandiosity of “Oh Joy” – what really makes it such an essential set are the curious turns and oddball moments. Samba, jazz and easy listening get the Terje treatment on “Alfonso Muskedunder”, “Leisure Suit Proben” and “Svensk Sas”, while there’s a welcome dose of wide-eyed Balearica on the tweaked “Swing Star” (one of a string of previously released cuts on the album). Most interesting of all, though, is “John & Mary”, a woozy, Roxy Music style cover of a Robert Palmer classic featuring the effervescent Bryan Ferry.
