6. Todd Terje | It's Album Time | Olsen

When Todd Terje did, after six years of increasingly impressive production work, finally declare It's Album Time! (hopefully out loud in an authoritative Norwegian accent), I feel like it had to be in response to a dare. How can you piece together Bryan Ferry, Japanese video game soundtracks, a harpsichord sample and the Knight Rider theme? It's a cheesy delight of a record, a slice of retrograde lounge disco that's somehow even more fun than it is well-produced.
