On the 2007 follow-up to his overlooked full-length '03 debut, HERE COMES THE FUZZ, London-born/New York City-based DJ/producer Mark Ronson presents an appealing and inventive set of cover tunes in collaboration with an eclectic array of artists. A hit upon its release in the U.K., the lively single "Stop Me" finds Ronson working with Australian R&B performer Daniel Merriweather on an intriguing club-oriented interpretation of the Smiths' "Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before" that deftly mixes in a chunk of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On."
Other highlights of VERSION are Ronson's funky take on the Kaiser Chiefs' "Oh My God," which features a typically charming turn by British pop singer Lily Allen, and a horn-led rendition of Radiohead's "Just" that includes vocals by Phantom Planet's Alex Greenwald. With its dynamic track listing and guest shots, the entire album is a vibrant party-perfect outing that should win over many listeners outside of Ronson's loyal fanbase.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "VERSION is an audacious set of similar left-field covers turned into dance-soul tracks..."
Spin (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] sharp arranging skills and suitably angular performances....A stylishly sweaty summer party."
Entertainment Weekly (p.65) - "VERSION succeeds thanks to Ronson's singular vision of smooth '60s- and '70s-era soul merged with contemporary pop. All in all, it's a bouncy, people-friendly party starter..." -- Grade: A
