This review is of a white label copy - you may have trouble getting this as it has been refused release in both the USA & Germany - so far it hasn't been tried elsewhere, but expect similar reaction. The 'A' side is a cover version of the MADONNA number, and the track creating all the problems - the label's all tangled up in the copyright laws amd things don't look like they're gonna change. It is an atmospheric piece as was the original, except for SLEEP CHAMBER's harder edge and more gutsy approach. I'm not too familiar with MADONNA's version, but this would appeal to most people reading this review. ZEWIZZ whispers over the soft / hard backdrop, suggesting far more in his vocal tones than the very lyrics say. The 'B' side is one of SLEEP CHAMBER's own compositions much in the style of "Sleep Or Forever Hold Your Piece". It might have made a good 'A' side itself. It's built on a constant rhythm with a lot of subtle sounds going on in the background. SLEEP CHAMBER seem to be mellowing - although heavily suggestive, there is no up-front sexual imagery, but gasping - in pain or pleasure? - can be heard in the background.
It would be a shame if this is totally refused release as it is a good record and an ideal starting place for those interested in SLEEP CHAMBER's music, but who wouldn't want to splash out on a full LP of 'unknown' music.
