Once upon a time, science opened up the door

80. Cerrone - "Supernature" (Atlantic, 1977)

The arpeggiated synths on this are very, very dope. I mean, everything on this is very, very dope. As far as early space disco classics, "Supernature" is up there with pretty much any of the Moroder classics. It has some odd moments, like the funky but not quite there right-channel solo that starts towards the end of its third minute, but there is so much here that works beautifully that when that triumphant riff comes in at 6:03 part of the thrill is kind of a "holy shit, how does this track have another gear to go into?"

Also, it's about nature getting its revenge on man.
