Absolute Body Control's Final Report is an absolute beast.

Coming across something like breakcore vs. minimal synth (at 33rpm), it's truly unique.

The vocal samples are executed superbly. The production is sharp, to the point. The vibe is synthetic, detached.

Awesome track.

I can't really stomach the other tracks, maybe I should listen to them more but they've got a very depressing, grim feeling about them.

Hey, I like Uplifting EBM! :)

A superb selection of the Belgian underground sound from late 80'. As the sleeve says, these guys represented the Belgian artists that didn't wanted to "go New Beat" and were pionneering the "pure agreppo" style.
Let alone this old-fashionned point on view (It was 88, and I guess they believed New Beat was only Confetti!), all these are more on the dark side of EBM, with severe influences from the like of Skinny Puppy.
All tracks are truly great, short (without any unecessary repetitions) and sincere. I must also say that "Final Report" is one of the most strange and harsh release of the genre (a real gem IMO), and that "Aimless" is a marvel, either agressive and soulful.
