Album Review
Reviewed 2003-06-04 
Old-school-style industrial dance, down to the dodgy mohawk. Think Front 242, Skinny Puppy, etc. (or DAF, Liaisons Dangereuses, or KMFDM, if you must) when you hear these semi-tough beats, often (but not always) distorted vocals, electro-drums and plinky synths. Almost too ... polite, though. These Germans are just OK, but not groundbreaking, certainly.

1. Tough, fast
2. Funky and melodic
3. Sung and spoken vocals of an undistinguished nature; "anger is your gasoline"?
4. Layered vocals over simple bassline and rhythm track
5. Nicely harmonized synth bassline, angry vox
6. Cold, subdued, trance-y
7. Techno-ballad
8. "Beat me"; Well, since you asked so nicely
9. Good bottom, and time-distorted vox, befitting the title, "Underwater"
10. Tepid techno
11. Tougher beat but the vocals are still too much pleasure, not enough piss
12. A last stab at an edge but it's another nice mid-tempo techno pop tune
