Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-01-03 
Strummy, angular Deutschrock/post-punkish stuff from Berlin. A bit like Wire, The Fall, and a few NDW (Neu Deutsch Welle/German New Wave) & punk bands. This also comes off like a German version of a recently unearthed Messthetics band. In all, some very interesting stuff. They’re named after the terrorist group in the sci-fi movie “Kamikaze 1989”. The title (roughly translated) is “Today sleep – walking morning”.

SIDE A
((((1))))) Nice build up and changing tempos.
((((2)))) Moody, mid-paced and steady with a bit of synth. Very similar to Wire.
(((3))) Slow build up with an ever increasing simple strum and mostly spoken vocals & some “ooo-woooo” synth bits.
((((4)))) Fast strumming, playful tempo, howling (!), some good drumming and a nice chorus. Title means “Oh, Cola-Cola – You Swine!”
SIDE B
(((1))) Jagged tempo, pretty good build up with some odd not quite all there parts. Weirdly the chorus almost sounds French.
(((2))) Slow, open tuned guitars with a reggae-ish & post-punk tempo.
(((3))) Flat singing, pretty good guitar strums and moody bass. So-so overall.
(((4))) More spoken vocals, slow tempo and melancholic post-punk style. Not bad but they’re repeating things too much.

SIDE C
(((1))) Metalic (literally, not heavy metalisch) chords, distant Mark E. Smith-styled vocals with a 1-2-3-4 post-punky tempo.
((((2)))) Slightly fuzz tone, more plaintive but good vocals. The guitars & stop/starts make it a winner.
(((3))) Strange proggy keyboards, big guitars and noisy, distorted vocals. Very disjointed but kinda interesting.

SIDE D
((((1)))) Slow build into a mid-paced, fuzzy angular pop/post-punk thing.
((((2)))) Strummy, “proper” indie pop with more “woo—ooo” electronic/synth bits.
(((3))) Odd tempo & guitar chorus sliding up, down and melting into strange shapes. Good walking bass line.
((((4)))) Judding to lightly fuzzed out guitar and wooing keyboards. Sorta like early Bowie gone post-punk.(CAREFUL – Locked groove ending!)
