Tiefwchwarz have been around the electronic music scene for quite a while before they released EAT BOOKS, and from the outset, with the rock influenced "Warning Siren" and "Wait & See," it seems as if they're embracing a more pop crossovers. But "Far East" gets them back to low-tempo house, and "Original" goes for a darker club rub. The electro vibe on "Fly" is quite nice, and Tracey Thorn adds a small emotion on "Damage," with an acid bassline to back her up. "Benedict" gets back to straightforward house with a nice melodic sensibility, while "Issst" goes more off-kilter. Overall, a pleasant enough diversion.

This album was a major disappointment; achieving the quite paradoxical feat of sounding formulaic and mismatched at the same time. Some of the lyrics are really dire (try Troubled Man) and vocals uninspired (Tracey Thorn doing her usual rent-a-miserable-mood number).
Only highlights are the last two tracks, Benedict, as it recycles the best elements of one of Tiefschwarz trademark remix (Kelis Trick Me) and Issst, that eventually sound as a second thought to this over-all below par collection.

I guess that's what's likely to happen when talented producers spend too much time remixing everybody and their mother too when preparing their own second album.
