This one started out as a homage to Stevie Wonder's Too High, from his Innervisions album. We wanted to do a breakbeat song with that kind of bass. This is also the first time that I put my voice on a record. This is direct to the Bad album. Or Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' off Thriller. It has that funky drum machine shuffle.

Well, it's been two weeks now, and I guess it's time to tell you guys something about Cassius' 1999. I've been diligenty listening to it in my cubicle, my car and at home, thinking, always, of what to tell you, faithful reader. Maybe I need some coke to truly delight in the seething vacancy of 1999, but I'm pretty sure that it's clearly not happening. Don't get me wrong- as pure dance music, this album can stand side by side with the legions of house, techno and rave comps that stress booties on their covers. I mean, it could just be the pompous prick in me, but I've come to expect a more cerebral quality from Astralwerks artists.

Diredefender
A must have at the time of this release. reissued in excellent audio quality to my delight (especially when you see the price of the 1999 edition)

Ghordana
Great groovy house record. I love it more and more as time goes by. Maybe not as relentless and pristine as Daft Punk's 'Homework', but also less monotonous and definitely as sexy.

Kinashand
Huge record that's way underrated imo. French touch at its most beautiful moments. This LP deserves the same recognition as Daft Punk's 'Homework' and to a certain extent 'Pansoul' by Motorbass.

Todal
While I must say Cassius' 1999 album is a good foray into the French House genre that was booming at the time, I must say that this album is pretty overrated. It's not terrible, but it's definitely not the pillar of French House that everyone makes it to be. Sure, there are some classic cuts here, such as Cassius 1999, Cassius 99 (Remix), Foxxy, Feeling For You, and Nulife, there are other tracks on here that are simply so boring they'll put you to sleep. I feel that this album suffers from an overabundance of tracks. 16 is way too much, and a lot of the album suffers because of it. The whole album has a bit of a laid-back feel, and the singles don't really reflect the rest of the album. The album seems to do a bit too much at once, it tries to market as danceable music and still be chilled like Etienne de Crecy's work. Tracks like Crazy Legs, Chase, Planetz, Mister Eveready, Somebody, Interlude, and Invisible are really unnecessary, and are so relaxed that they're to the point of un-listenable. They put the album at a really slow pace, and 1999 hurts from it.In my opinion, if 1999 didn't have all this filler, and was condensed to a more realistic 10-11 tracks, it'd be much better overall. But as a whole, Cassius' singles overrate this album greatly.

Detenta
I completely agree with you. Though there are some tracks you'd surely remember, most of it is filler material. Either they could've reduced the filler material or made the filler material an actually good song. The only two songs I truly liked from 1999 are Foxxy & La Mouche.

Hra
Absolutely stunning full length offering with several stand out and uptempo tracks mixed in with chiller and downtempo offerings. This Record moves gracefully back and forth from chopped up cartoon samples and stuttering french production to ultra chill smokin' hip hop beats and is in this respect quintessentially french. Imagine an afternoon at the cafe sipping wine or strong coffee followed by a wild evening out at Respect. This record received a great deal of hype at the time and rightfully so. Some have mused at it being the 'pop version of French House' but that seems unfair. This record clearly holds it own alongside other offerings from French Crews(ie Etienne De'Crecy and Super Discount)and as an album is just as well rounded. This record still does not sound dated and has "great legs".
