5. I Created Disco  (2007)

“If you’re looking for some tunes to get you pumped up for a good time, this is your go-to album. Calvin Harris delivers a solid 14 tracks of high-energy techno pop that’s catchy and fun, even if it’s a bit repetitive after a while. Despite what some may see as this album’s flaws–it’s lack of variety, familiar synth sound, and very simple song structures–what redeems this album for me is that Calvin Harris doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously.”

4. Motion (2014)

“Calvin Harris is one of the superstars of DJ culture. This cd is nothing short of Epic. It starts out with the song Faith which strangely is very spiritual and personal which is unlike the shallow nature of dance music. Blame and Summer are two of the radio hits. Both are incredible songs in their own right. John Newman’s voice is superb sounding as if Calvin Harris himself were speaking of cheating on his girlfriend at a club. “Blame it on the night. Don’t blame it on me.” Love me Now has the most incredible vocals with Vanya Taylor referencing some of the amazing house music divas. Outside with Ellie Goulding’s unique innocent vocal style is a definite winner. Pray to God is my first experience with Haim and it references their affinity for Fleetwood Mac. Love the inspirational Christian slant of this song with a dance music flavor. Overall an excellent album with a lot of gems.”

“Dance, dance, dance and pop, pop, pop. It’s the best of both. Calvin knows how to twiddle the knobs to pump up the beat and how can you go wrong with HAIM! If you’ve liked his previous stuff, you are gonna like this. “

2. Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (2017)

“This cd is my first musical introduction to Calvin Harris and I’m super satisfied with my purchase. Although I like most genres of music, I lean more toward hip hop and r&b. After hearing the soulful song Slide, I knew that I had to have this album and it doesn’t disappoint. I’m not sure about his previous music so I can’t make a fair comparison but I really, really, really like this cd.”

1. 18 Months  (2012)

“This CD has all the latest hits and duets. Most of the tracks are familiar which is why I bought it. Some are his own, and are not my favorites. But I am not in his demographic being 60, but I love modern music so overall I am happy with the CD and would recommend it.”
