Each of the songs bears remarkable similarities in sound to some other bands out there (old LeatherStrip, Covenant, Apoptygma Berserk, Funker Vogt, Depeche Mode, etc.), but without the repetitiveness that EBM bands tend to get stuck into. The songs all vary in sound from one another quite a bit, but still manage to fit together into a cohesive record.
I can imagine some DJs and hardcore EBM-ers not liking the longer, ambient styled intros floating in front of many of the tracks, before they take off. But, the tracks make up for it. They present rigid rhythms, some nice melody work, body moving synths, and some occasional "how-the-hell-did-he-do-that" production tricks. The vocals are very professionaly done (Daniel is becoming quite good at real singing) with a guest appearance by Vanessa Briggs (huajobb's LESS and OVERFLOW). Definitely pick this up if you like industrial, EBM, or electronic pop music, and it will fit your fancy. If you are a fan of Daniel's drum'n'bass work, you are advised to approach with caution.
I thoroughly recommend this album, especially to haujobb/cleaner fans- but also to anyone who enjoys dark electronica and futuristic music. There are sounds on here that you will not have heard anywhere else.
