Don’t be fooled by the credentials of Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel on production duties, Sexuality is about as sensually exciting as being felt up by a drooling old gobshite. Taking its cue from fellow French pervert’s Serges Gainsbourg’s pioneering work, each song on the album represents a different part of the sexual experience – complete with moaning women, slinky sleazy synths and Tellier, the deranged ‘sexual king’ singing about erections, climaxing and sticky sex. It’s filthy electro all right, but now how we know it.
Even the wonderful seven minute electronic opus ‘Sexual Sportswear’ can’t save Sexuality. The songs are at least two minutes too long and rarely divert from establishing melody. Tellier even followed in Gainsbourg’s footsteps by representing France in the Eurovision Song Contest with the track ‘Devine’ but nothing can excuse this dull musical masturbation session. You may have the stamina and endurance Sebastien, but you’re still way too limp.
