"YA YA"Ron Rogers  - ZE - ISLAND RECORDS 

             
                           
   Most artists, art appreciators, art haters, DJs, record collectors, snobs, slobs, and smart-mouths—in other words, bohemians—are probably familiar with ZE's output. Six years ago, the revived imprint (still operating, though in a relatively limited capacity) released their greatest blurts in a four-volume set misleadingly labeled Mutant Disco—substituting squelches for strings and goblins for divas doesn't make disco any more or less mutant, just different. Though it hit almost every ripe nerve in the label's catalog, it was more completist fetish than succinct encapsulation, and left open the opportunity for a more effective introduction to this sundry collection of inspired weirdos.    TAL ROSENBERG
