The Present Lover (CD, Album). Though Vladislav Delay received heavy criticism for his second album, it still remains within the lineage of the first, although with much more emphasis on recognizeable song structures, and more prevalent vocals. The vocals in the Present Lover are no longer simply another instrument (as in Vocalcity), but are in fact used more traditionally-which is not to say it's a bad thing, but simply different from what took place on the first album

The Present Lover continues the experiment, and in general improves on it. Luomo, in typically modest fashion, speaks of the "panic" he went through recording the vocals on Vocalcity, having never featured any on previous releases. It's a safe bet he isn't panicking now, as the singing here (both female and male) is as smooth as it comes . I certainly wasn't terribly enamored of the stuff coming into The Present Lover. But this is an easy album to recommend, largely due to it having an impact far beyond the dancefloor. Sometimes it just doesn't pay to hang onto old biases, and for now, I'm perfectly willing to leave this on repeat if you are. Back to home.
The Present Lover, Luomo's second album, ironically, has more vocals than on Vocalcity. Whereas Vocalcity was house placed in outer space, The Present Lover comes crashing down to Earth - Earth in the mid-80s, no less. There's much more cheeky pop on this new album, as evidenced on the spoken word on "Talk in a Danger. The vocals, however, also detract from the album; some lyrics are laughably cheesy (as on the opening track "Visitor") and the breathy delivery takes me right back to the time of parachute pants and Members Only jackets
The Present Lover" by Luomo is neither cross-genre exercise nor blind tribute, but something altogether more imaginative and strange – a rock-solid piece assembled from cracked components, a universal call drafted from so many levels of disrupted communication.
For those who found themselves enraptured by Vladislav Delay's first Luomo album, the wait for the follow-up seemed torturous, interrupted only by the occasional teaser. The greatest appetite-whetter was "Diskonize Me"/"Body Speaking," a 12" that forecasted further use of vocals and more succulent, tactile beats. The Present Lover carries on with a sound that falls smack in the middle of micro-house and deep house, one that's less wrapped up in mystery (read: more vocal-based, more pop, less spacious)

Works under the Luomo name feature dance-floor ready vocal house. His Ripatti singles are a pastiche of Chicago footwork. Sasu Ripatti often references himself within his music. The "Vapaa Muurari" album, for example, provided much of the instrumental material for Vocalcity. Similarly, the track "Tessio" on the "Vocalcity" album was re-recorded for the "Present Lover" album in 2003.
