DJ-producer Lance DeSardi brings some solid electro and house to his solo album debut, but solid isn't always enough when he could have pushed it much further. Dancefloor devotees might recognize several tracks here: the synth-driven "Dangerous," with vaguely sleazy male vocals; "Tie Me Up," a thick-bassed house killer with totally sleazy male vocals; and "Slippage," with its somewhat boring monotone. Many of the tracks have a "done that" feel, maybe because DeSardi has actually done them before. For an expectedly edgy, demented album, there's too much that feels like familiar ground.
