das album coco ist nun endlich als doppel-vinyl erhältlich und setzt da fort. wo parov stelar’s bisherige erfolgsalben aufgehört haben. auf der anderen seite entwickelt er seinen sound aber konsequent weiter und fügt seinen bewährten jazzigen klängen spannende. neue stilelemente hinzu. die zwei vinyle des doppelalbums sind als unterteilung zwischen den eher tanzbareren und den zum hören gedachten tracks zu sehen. diese grenze verschwindet bei parov stelars aktuellen kompositionen allerdings zusehends und das album bildet so weniger ein zweigeteiltes werk als vielmehr einen homogenen fluss an nummern. die stetig an tanzfaktor gewinnen. der musiker selbst sieht das ganze als »buch für den musikalischen leser«. in dem es ganz klar eine klassische aufteilung in einleitung. mittelteil und schluss gibt. durch die schnelllebigkeit unserer zeit und das »reinhören« in alben geht die auseinandersetzung mit weniger plakativen songs verloren. »coco« ist von parov stelar hier als gegenposition gedacht.
