Album Review
Reviewed 2004-03-23
The German electro-pop band issues an EP consisting mostly with remixes of tracks from the excellent Neon Golden album. Dance-like or experimental beats, Loops, keyboards and various electronica styles. This album is not as poppy as the original album, but definitely worth the play. Tracks 3-5 are instrumental, or with unintelligible vocals. Some tracks are on the long-ish side (noted below). Play 1, 2 as “real” music and 3-5 for anything else.
1. Mid/high tempo dance beats, beautiful remix of the title track from the last album.
2. Dance beats, 2-minute long intro, only vocal melody carried from original track. Not as good as the original (which I really liked), yet a great track.
3. Slow/mid tempo, weird beats, loops and samples. Instrumental. 6:14
4. Experimental track, mid tempo. Opens with noise; keyboard and real drums throughout. Broken, scatty vocals. 8:08. 20+ seconds quiet at the end.
5. A beat that can almost be described as dub. Instrumental. Mid/slow tempo.
