Are there major differences between Original and V2? Or is V2 just a remaster with bonus tracks?


April 6, 2004

It's always interesting to glance back at how one of the biggest underground electronic bands of the present started their reign. Though albums like Futureperfect and Empires have their moments, they can never come close to what the band accomplished on Praise the Fallen. And since AAF was released before PTF, you can be certain that they share the same style in comparison to FP and Empires.

The overall feeling of the music is so much different, as it was on PTF: it's alot darker and angrier, truer to EBM than the futurepop of later material. The lyrics have more emphasis on topics such as freedom and politics, rather than abstract emotions. As always, the music is simple, but very effective, and it is a lot harder and EBM-ish than later material. Easily the best work of VNV Nation.
