Industrial, EBM, goth and anything electronic that doesn't have "this is shit and we're sell outs" written all over it, which unfortunately, I have fallen for on more than just one occasion.

Apparently its the Japanese record labels way of avoiding the local market buying imports, which also apparently are cheaper than their locally produced CD's and more than likely hardly anything to do with the UK and US record label marketing strategies. ... See full review

posted a review of Franz Treichler - Braindance. about 1 year ago
This is an absolutely superb slab of ambient electronics. Franz Treichler lead man of The Young Gods holds no punches on demonstrating the skill and talent he has in composing ambient, glitchy electronic music on this, his one and only solo effort away ... See full review

Sure their is much to be said for the DAF influences on display here, the instrumentation and minimalism of the production being the most relevant pointers towards the DAF influence. The delivery on the other hand tells a different story, especially ... See full review

Front 242 are a strange concept as a band. The have Daniel Bressanutti as a producer and main writer, Patrick Codenys as an instrumentalist, Richard JK/23 who performs as a backing vocalist/cheerleader and then Jean-Luc de Meyer who performs most of the ... See full review

Whatever genre people are calling this album, I'm going to stick to electronic as a base simplification for Untrue. Its an alright album, but it is not going to save any electronic genre from anything. The beats are one dimensional and thin sounding, ... See full review

Amon Tobin has just released ISAM and I bet he was anticipating its release as much as his fan's were, he was obviously quite eager for people to hear ISAM, considering that he posted the whole album for everyone to listen to in such places as ... See full review

I was expecting minimal techno, and that I got and not ever having listened to Pantha Du Prince before, I didn't really know which way this was going to go. On one hand I'm pleased with this release, but having fallen into the clichéd trap of "judging a ... See full review

21 Year's old today, March 19 2011. Though time has been unkind to many records released in the 1990's this is one album that has stood the test of time. Thanks in large part, no doubt, to the production skills of Flood in tandem with Alan Wilders ... See full review

Not as immediate an album as War Stories was, this baby is a grower and grow it will, pity its due for a rerelease already and an even bigger pity that instead of giving us a proper remix album of the original release they're opting to give us the album ... See full review

I bought this on the day of its release, and took it back straight after listening to it, on the day if its release. It sounded like 13 tracks of something a producer like BT would probably find on some long forgotten hard drive he threw into the back ... See full review

Whether you are the owner of the original release or a newbie looking for alittle sonic mayhem in your ear, this is a must have for fans of Nine Inch Nails or just audiophiles out on the hunt for something that sounds out of this world. The packaging is ... See full review

Not your typical Hybrid album, but a Hybrid album none the less. It gives you everything you've come to expect from those people from Swansea. Big on atmosphere, big on beat driven songs, yes songs and yes still very BIG on production techniques beyond ... See full review

Trent Reznor aka Nine Inch Nails a quintessential industrial rock artist or pathetic poster boy for alternative music in the 90's? The end of 2009 and it turned out that he was to be neither of them. Instead, what we are left with at the end of it all, ... See full review

I don't know much about Amon Tobin, hell only have 3 of his albums, but I know this much about Amon Tobin. He is out there on his own, doing his own thing and I used to think that the "cutting edge" in electronic music had long been gone and passed, but ... See full review

Metal Machine is the ultimate combination of Motor's two previous albums, Klunk and Unhuman. It blasts off with Kick It and its just rockets unrelentingly until Thwack knocks you out completely. Death Rave is the first single released off Metal Machine ... See full review

posted a review of Depeche Mode - Exciter. over 11 years ago
On first hearing Exciter upon its release back in 2001, I thought Depeche Mode had totally lost the plot. The atmospherics, the dramatics and the energy of the younger Depeche Mode was nowhere to be found and I what once knew as the sound of Depeche ... See full review
