5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful noise 15 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
hard to be objective when i'm in love with her but this is a fantastic eclectic collection of experimental electronica. initially i thought it was going to be a bit blippy but it soon settles into some hypnotic rhythms and fat bass end. the detail and variety within it stands up to and rewards repeated listens, she is inspired and inspiring

4.0 out of 5 stars quiet violence 1 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
This predominantly instrumental album is a challenging listen. Much like the sound track to a horror movie that you wish existed, it comprises of a set of quiet, slowly evolving, tense compositions that elegantly showcase Endo's talent for electronic sound manipulation. To get the most out of this album, one really has to invest some time and submerge into it fully. Doing so can result in a highly relaxing, yet dramatic experience.
If you're looking for something like Atari Teenage Riot, forget it. This album is quite unique, and not for the casual listener.

4.0 out of 5 stars What are you on about??!This album is great 3 May 2002
By Alex Lambeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw the other review of this CD and was shocked,I have no idea why anyone with half a musical bone in their body does not appreciate this CD.I really enjoyed it,if somewhat overwhelmed by it at first and then I realised its brilliance.There are jazz influences on many of the keyboard riffs,classical influences and raw electronica.I have always loved Nic Endo's work with Alec Empire and this just proved to me she is a fantastic modern musician .I feel Digital Hardcore and Geist bring something incredibly special to modern music,a raw intesity that is rare in a music scene dominated by popmetal and soulless music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bow down to your Mistress, you've been very bad... 1 July 2004
By Briggs May - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(...) If you would, kindly go back to listening to your Limp Bizkit records and please leave this music alone.
With that outta the way, let it be known that this is one of the more unusual and challenging electronic albums to come out in the past few years. It's a dark, quirky mix of jazz, old-school electro, and industrial that I don't think I've heard anywhere else lately. Yeah, the influences are obvious(Herbie Hancock, Igor Stravinsky) and any intellectual snob could dismiss it as derivative or unoriginal but the bottom line is there needs to be more women thinking like Nic Endo in electronic music, and music in general, for that matter. There are too many whack female DJs that are getting known simply because they are a female in a male-dominated genre (like most genres of modern music) and Nic Endo has effectively risen above this with her own unique style. At first, the title "Cold Metal Perfection" suggests something harsh, militant, and industrial (like most of the other Digital Hardcore she is known for) but, as the music sinks in it seems more like a portrait of a foxy android sex machine who's had enough of doing what she's programmed to do.
From the get-go, this record may seem difficult to many listeners. It may be confusing to people who are accustomed to certain approaches to electronic music or it may just appear to be a sloppy, lazy cop-out (this girl's techniques are very lo-fi (...)). However, upon repeated listening, it's clear how sullen, sexy, and sophisticated it really is. And for all you fellas out there that still aren't willing to recognize, Miss Endo happens to be a startlingly gorgeous babe, so go on and buy her frickin' album, already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensitivity and perfection. 14 July 2003
By KMD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant album and 'yes' it does take some time to understand it fully - for those looking for some electronic pop merchant go for Radiohead or the Pet Shop Boys. This album is a truly inspired atmospheric album that at different times takes off into steady electronic rock swing - in particular "I Didn't Exist" and "One Night Domination".....
Nic Endo's "Cold Metal Perfection" is exactly what the title suggests - an edge, a robotic swing, but also a highly sensitive work of unique contemporary music that has no real equal out there - except of course Mr. Empire's own special vision.
If you enjoy this album try Alec Empire's "Low On Ice" and more comparative "Hypermodern Jazz 2000.5", don't let the people who don't have the time or sensitivity to appreciate Nic Endo's fine effort lead you astray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to the Classic Scifi/Horror that was never made 15 Jun 2005
By David Flick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While Nic Endo is known the Noise/mixer contributor to Atari Teenage Riot, her debut album is a far cry from the Gabber Digital Punk of her former band. No noise on this CD (except for the white heat video by Phillip Virus) but what we have here is a debut of experimental electronic sounds capes that have more in common with yesteryears science fiction and horror drive ins from the 1960's. Nothing make this more apparent that the dialogue samples from "Carnival of Souls" that is used extensively on the track "I Didn't Exist", While Hanin Elias makes a guest appearance on "One Night Domination" Endo truly shines on her own with her experimental gems that she creates. Someone mentioned elements of Jazz, and I have to admit I don't see a single trace of those anywhere on this CD. I see synthesizer textures that sound like something from the 1960's I hear 80's drum rhythms with a Linn Drum, and I hear various moments of random quirky synthesizers but no a hint of jazz. In the end this CD will fit better next to a Coil Cd or early era Download than it does next to a Gabber or Digital Hardcore CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE, you "people"...worst album ever? WHAT EVA'! 14 May 2003
By Christoph Albright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
fist off: nic endo is a clasicially trained jazz musisian, O.K.? this might be why if you do not like "jazz" or other experimental musik formates you proboly wont like this album.
i must say that the first time that i listened to this album it didnt get me going, but oh well. i listened to it a couple of months later and then actually LISTENED to it...IT ROCKS!it starts out with a sample form "bela ligosies dead" and only improves. with song titles like: "neon sunrise", "black light rituals", "crystalline curcuits" how can you go wrong? and these are not even the best titles.
i would sugest this album to someone what likes alec empire 's more mellow albums like "space jazz".
