Track 14 is a version of the final track on Laibach´s album "WAT".
And yes, indeed it is Milan Fras from Laibach singing.
Umek co-produced some of the tracks on "WAT".

Now this is seriously going too far. Umek' Neuro bettering Aphex Twin (Richard D. James), now that's rich. Neuro is a washed out copy of what Aphex Twin produced a decade ago when besides having some depth to it and being amazing (as it still now is), it was also groundbreaking, which Neuro isn't (being 10 years late and all).
Umek made some really great hard techno stompers, but a lot of his stuff (including Neuro) belongs to the forget/filler section, where it would stay forever had it not had Umek stamped on it. Some objectivity people please.

to C.E.O.: The Track vocals are indeed the same vocals as Laibach's. Umek did also some of the studio engineering for Laibach, so this might be the "thank you" from one band to another. It's not listed on the cover or inlay but it was written on the promo-sheet I got with that CD.

Here Umek has bettered a lot Richard D James' recent IDM/Techno. There is a good solid feel to the tracks thanks to the strong low frequency provided by forceful drums and decent bass, which is refreshing given some IDM can sound very fragile.

The well structured tracks contain enchanting and interesting patterns overlapping and building, though the tracks are mostly predictable. This makes it a less challenging listen than, say, Autechre - Confield, but also means it lacks depth.

The best track is "Psvedo", but the whole CD is of consistent quality.

Track 14 remembers me of Laibach songs, because track14 used vocal like Laibach (in the same language) and the sounds are dark like Laibach's music.
