While several Italian artists have opted to split their releases into two half-priced discs as a response to the economic crisis, in J-Ax 's case the decision has proved surprisingly beneficial, yielding two consistent albums rather than one winding and probably spotted affair.
Besides, at ten tracks and 35 minutes, Deca Dance is an EP only in name: it should rightfully be considered a full studio album, as well as J-Ax 's strongest solo release to date. If Rap n' Roll was fueled by anger and a mixture of rap with hardcore and punk, its sunnier Cause You Are Young (7 Version) - C.C. Catch - Cause You Are Young, Deca Dance not coincidentally intended as a summer releasesees J-Ax merge his hip-hop roots with '90s Euro-pop and house-dance music.
This results in a much more fun album, full of wisecracks and name-dropping, that recalls the best moments of Articolo Curiously for someone typically so immersed in the present and critical of itthe dominant theme of Deca Dance is the past.
Indeed, titles such as "Old School," "Bitter Years," "The Good Old Times," and "Deca Dance" make no attempt at disguising the past decade or so as the obvious, and slightly obsessive, focus of this album. Conceivably, hardcore fans -- or younger audiences -- may initially wince at J-Ax 's relentless self-mythologizing and ill-concealed nostalgiaas opposed to the pungent description of contemporary Italy of his previous work.
Still, everyone would have to agree that Deca Dance includes the best, fully realized, batch of songs he has penned since Articolo 31 's Italiano Medio.
