October review : Neon Dreams

October Review : Justice - Audio, Video, Disco

October review : Surkin - USA

L-vis 1990 deliveres his first album Neon Dreams.



Because of his remixes of Shark Simple, Voodoo or Sha! Shtil! L-vis 1990 always stayed under my radar.

I will give you my top 7 (yeah, that's not usual, I'm an edgy guy) out of this 15 tracks long album. Why do I do that ? Because the album is not ground breaking, it has its moments but it also has a lot of downsides such as being a bit too generic sometimes.

L-vis 1990 - Forever You [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Play It Cool [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Shy Ligh [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Cruisin' [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Feel The Void [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Lost In Love [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


L-vis 1990 - Neon Dreams [track removed due to request of the IFPI]


The album is way too eclectic, it seems like L-vis does not really know what crowd he aims for so he makes a bit of everything, some electro pop, some hip hop influenced songs with a bit of jungle.

All in all, I was disappointed, a lot of tracks were pretty flat and weak in comparison to his remixes or a track like Compass. But the album has a few gems, like Forever You, Play It Cool or Cruisin' that will stay in my playlist for a while.

I would give it a 5 or a 6 out of 10, because it's not bad, but it's not good either, some songs are just not working.

Sorry I missed this one, how come the tracks got removed? Was it the artist or a third party?
