Critiques CD: Mark Ronson & the Business Intl. | Record Collection

Part-time fashion plate and producer to the stars (Amy, Lily and Robbie among them), this British musical maven pops out another eclectic, guest list-heavy record (think Duran Duran, grime man Wiley and East Coast rapper Q-Tip). Ronson takes a few steps out of the retro soul sandbox here to dabble in both ‘80s synth boppiness and electro-hop. A slightly scattered ensemble, with a few notable highlights: a plaintive Boy George carrying afro-pop ditty “Somebody to Love Me,” and ex-Pipette Rose Elinor Dougall’s sparring duet with Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt on the prickly “You Gave Me Nothing.”
