Poplife Presents: Poplife Sucks

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This album looks like a label compilation, but Poplife is actually a party rather than a label. It began in Belgium in 1998 under the supervision of the Glimmers and Olivier Tjon, and was intended from the beginning to demonstrate that just about any variety of music styles can be mixed together by the right kind of DJ. That defiant eclecticism is obviously the unifying theme of this celebratory compilation, which not only includes music across a wide genre spectrum but from a broad time span as well -- ranging from Adriano Celentano's bizarre "Prisencolinensinainciosul" circa 1973 to Jacknife Lee's weird, minimalist, and fun "Switch Remix" of "Making Me Money" circa ...

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This album looks like a label compilation, but Poplife is actually a party rather than a label. It began in Belgium in 1998 under the supervision of the Glimmers and Olivier Tjon, and was intended from the beginning to demonstrate that just about any variety of music styles can be mixed together by the right kind of DJ. That defiant eclecticism is obviously the unifying theme of this celebratory compilation, which not only includes music across a wide genre spectrum but from a broad time span as well -- ranging from Adriano Celentano's bizarre "Prisencolinensinainciosul" circa 1973 to Jacknife Lee's weird, minimalist, and fun "Switch Remix" of "Making Me Money" circa 2008. From points in between, both temporally and stylistically, come such obscure gems as Material's surprisingly mainstream funk workout "Don't Lose Control" mainstream in 1982, anyway, the Glimmers' creepy cover of Olivia Newton-John's "Physical," and Manu Dibango's 1980s Afro-funk classic "Abele Dance." On the more familiar front, there are Kid Frost's rap en español anthem "La Raza" and Japan's "Adolescent Sex," as well as a cruel tease in two parts: the track listing promises Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" not once but twice, and in both cases delivers only a brief and rather lame spoken word interlude. On the other hand, the program does end with Aphex Twin's "Windowlicker."
