Simply put, Record Collection (out 9/28) is our favorite thing Mark Ronson has ever done, and that's not just cause it's packed with FADER faves like MNDR, Ghostface, Pill, Spank Rock, D'Angelo (!), Wiley and Theophilus. Like his prior producer albums, it's glossed up with his extensive range: hip-hop, Brit pop, video game electro, international spy music, new wave, etc. But it also really shows how he's come into his own over the past couple years, each track seamlessly threaded to the other with his adventurousness. Which is not to say his prior works were not cohesive or adventurous, but Record Collection just feels more confident and fresh. Maybe it's about growing up, maybe it's about getting stronger, but either way, jamming melodies. Also, this dude got D'Angelo and Boy George to come out the back shed! Cannot front on that. Tracklist after the jump.
