Free 2 Night - Free Tonight (Deluxe X-mas Edition)
In less than 2 years, Free 2 Night trio (RealThing, Viper and Ira Vain) succeeded in becoming one of the best new generation eurodance projects. They proved that eurodance was not dead and still has a lot of things to say. After several brilliant singles, it was high time for their first album. Initially released in October, it got enriched with 3 additional tracks, including new single The Christmas Star. Now we have not less than 17 tracks, and each have a distinctive flair, sure to please Free 2 Night's growing fanbase.
Album opens with Stays The Same, which was their second official single. A superb song, containing everything a eurodance tracks needs.
Then comes Free Tonight, a stunning track that gets right to the point, on which Viper delivers a particulary amazing rap performance. One of my favourites.
Subseqently we have Lost Control, a great collaboration with BPM's rapper and producer Boris Pavlovic, already reviewed here.
Rise Up is a cool euro-reggae track conveying a positive message of hope and courage.
This was their first official single : Music in Your Mind is an amazing eurodance song with perfect synths and great beat.
Afterwards, Against the Wind introduces a touch of eurotrance reminding of projects such Milk Inc. Brilliant and uplifting, with powerful and sensual vocals by Ira Vain at her best, the result is impressive.
Then we have the Original mix Under the Sun, already reviewed here, with its exotic and mysterious flavor. Special mention to Viper's excellent rap performance.
Sweet Lies is also a very powerful song with a pull-you-onto-the-dancefloor rhythm and an uplifting melodic line which provide the platform for Ira's and Viper's voices
Memories is another fantastic, beautifully crafted song that will have you dancing in no time. And you will discover that Ira Vain knows how to rap too !
Power in Your Heart is a solid masterpiece with once again fantastic female vocals to die for and strong, exploding beats.
Then we have Life Is Love, a simply magnificent song with gorgeous synths, that was recently released as a single and already reviewed here. A real ear-candy you can't help singing along with.
Unity is a delightful euro-reggae song, a sunny summer track which will be perfect for your beach parties.
Album goes on with Extended Remix ofUnder the Sun, which really deserved to be on the album.
Hypothetic Remix of Rise Up completely revamps the track and the result is simply amazing. Eurodance in every sense of the word.
Da Mask Remix of Life Is Love fueled the song with even more energy. This is one of the album's highlights.
Eurodance Remix of Under the Sun with its breathtaking synths shall not be missed either.
Eventually we have the Main Mix of their new single The Christmas Star.
Many potential hits and no fillers, an outstanding release that every eurodance fan should have in his collection.
