Amazing album with some pretty cool minimalistic synth sounds mixed with harsh angst-filled vocals and distorted guitars. It takes the sound Beranek explored on his debut single "Dra Te Hælvete" (Go To Hell) and fully matures it into a mix of post punk and minimalist synth that creates what can only be described as the album's title: Sound of danger. Still the album does have its moments of beauty and melancholy, with songs like Search and Can't Go To Sleep being some of my absolute favourites. And Crystal Dream is probably one of the most underrated synth pop songs of the early 80's and it's a huge shame it never received a single.

In other words, this album is a must have for any fan of early 80's new wave, it perfectly captures the atmosphere of the time and delivers an album that still remains as timeless as much as it is a product of its time. Highly recommended.
