일년만에 돌아온 Electronic Corean!
하우스룰즈의 정규 2집 앨범 'Star House City'
2CD패키지로 구성된 이번 앨범은 Star House City에 착륙하는 과정인 'Landing'을 거쳐, 언제나처럼 즐거운 파티로 여행을 시작한다. 남들과 같은 지루함에서 벗어나 자신만의 세계를 추구하자는 의미를 가진 트랙 "Pop"을 거쳐 강렬한 일렉트로 사운드의 타이틀 곡 'High School Disco (Day)'에서는 서로(Seoro)의 전자식 색소폰연주와 보컬리스트 "Saphfire(사파이어)" 의 보컬이 인상적이다. 또한, 기쁨만을 인식할 수 있게 설계 된 Happy Robot과 그들만의 노래 'Star City Song'은 그들의 유머러스한 장난끼를 어김없이 보여준다. 신나고 강렬한 사운드와의 여행은 어느덧 해가 지고 있음을 알리는 'Cafe Paradise'에 도착한다. 이어지는 'Aftermoon','달이 뜬후에' 란 의미로 자신들의 레이블 이름이기도한 이 곡은 하우스룰즈의 또 다른 색깔을 예고하며, 따뜻한 학교 종소리가 울려 퍼지는 가운데 시작되는 타이틀 곡의 또 다른 버전인 'High School Disco (Night)'는 원곡의 느낌과는 또 다른 낭만적인 매력을 선사한다.

꿈, 사랑 그리고 희망이라 불리는 별들로의 따뜻한 여행까지 정말 다양한 장르이지만 그들만의 느낌으로 표현 된 하우스룰즈의 2집 앨범 `Star House City'. 음악적 상상의 가상공간과 디지털라이즘의 기술적 진보인 일렉트로 섹소폰 연주와의 결합은, 이번 앨범의 최대 특징이자 일렉트로닉음악시장의 하우스룰즈식 해법을 보여준다는
평가를 받고 있다.

2008년 한국대중음악상 최우수 일렉트로닉음반상을 수상하며 일렉트로뮤직과 팝뮤직의 경계에 적절한 음악적 해석을 제시한 하우스룰즈의 이번 앨범을 들어보며 무한한 미래의 상상에너지를 증폭 시켜보는 것이 어떨까. 세련되고 유쾌하게 말이다.

K-Pop-Tastic! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
After an initial introduction “Star House City” opens with “Pop” [CD 1 - Track 2] a wonderfully infectious dance-electronic melody that’s so rhythmic you could easily find yourself dancing to it from dusk till dawn. Such a fun song no doubt. Cute vocals provided by Saphfire and with refrains of ‘milk shake, lemon juice, strawberry ice cream’, it’s so catchy its been 'popping' up in my head all week. In fact “Pop” is as infectious as Girl’s Generation’s (SNSD) latest single “Gee”. Must be a big favorite amongst the dance floors of Seoul I would imagine.

I don’t know much about House Rulez other than this second CD outing here. But it’s a very good double set and fully electronic. It’s lightly upbeat though and mostly chill out dance soul funk than hard core electronica, producing a more relaxing and feel good repose.

Although I say not hard core, “Pop” and “High School Disco” (Day and Night version) [CD 1 - Track 3 and 8], are certainly club-tastic ‘hits’ to get you on your feet in no time. But apart from these and “Do It Again” [CD 1 - Track 12] similar bass grooves, the majority songs are lighter electronic dance beats and disco soul funk - including electronic saxophone, funky electric guitars, sparse bits of hip hop vocalization, funky melody vocals, light bossa nova rhythms and dub electronics + Saphfire’s lovely Pop voice!

“Star House City” certainly bops you into an uplifting ‘City of Dance’ spirit, with themes of nightlife, socializing, travel and stress release. “Star City Song” [CD 1 - Track 4] for instance is about the simple joy of listening to your music to ease life’s pressures. “City Lights of Seoul” [CD 2 - Track 2] is a wonderful chill out track, bringing to mind a ‘freed-soul overview' of the busy night lit city of Seoul with its bustling cars streaming through the energy pulsing metropolis. “Romance” [CD 2 - Track 3] is another more funkier and soulful sound that contrasts the initial style and a lovely song.

Enjoyed - Pop, City Lights in Seoul, Romance, High School Disco, After Moon, Sweet Emotion and Do It Again + all the rest! But top favorites can differ by each new listen.

A few stickers inside here too to get you sticking House Rulez all around your favorite city. Plus there's an hidden track following “My Fantastic Black Keyboard” on track 13. This CD should certainly satisfy your inner day-glow soul child by all the happy dance grooves here. And “Pop” is really very ace.
