Without doubt, "The Cynic" is Monte Cazazza's best effort. A very enjoyable mix of old-fashioned minimal electronics and soundtrack atmospheres, coupled with his typical dark humor and morbidness. "What's So Kind About Mankind" and "Birds Of Prey" are especially danceable, even if you won't find yourself singing the latter's lyrics while taking a shower. A pity that this CD came so late and went almost unnoticed. Monte's historical outputs definitely fade out in comparison to the musical quality of "The Cynic", and, even in the realm of industrial, their dilettantism is no match for the contemporary releases of, say, Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA or SPK.
