French duo Galleon—singer/songwriter Gilles Luka and keyboardist Philippe Laurent—has enjoyed massive European success with the title track of its debut album. In the U.S., the upbeat track continues to make inroads at radio while it becomes a staple on dancefloors. Throughout this collection of pop-fueled house jams (imagine Foreigner being produced by Daft Punk), Luka and Laurent keep their penchant for melodies and hooks in full view. But, as is too often the case with dancefloor-primed full-lengths, smart moves give way to filler material. Tracks like "Shining Light," "Da Rock," "Each Day" and "The Way"—which might have worked in one of the "Rocky" films—quickly lose steam. But such gems as the guitar-guided "One Sign," the deliriously buoyant "I Believe" and the Giorgio Moroder-inflected "Ghost Ship" make up for such misguided efforts.—MP
