Anyone who kicks off their studio career with a reworking of “Sunglasses at Night” obviously isn't taking themselves too seriously—witness Canadian DJ/producer Tiga. But while he's made a certain electro-camp his signature, this album just as often plays it straight, perhaps even too much. Tiga sticks mainly to uptempo, disco-influenced vocal house and techno, and slick production aimed at big rooms. Sure, there's “Sex O'Clock,” with a leer so exaggerated it could be coming from a cartoon wolf, but there's also the 10-minute-plus finisher “Love Don't Dance Here Anymore,” equal parts sad-eyed pop ballad and soulful club fare. None of this is groundbreaking, and the range is a bit narrow—but there's fun here nonetheless.
