5.0 out of 5 stars Most unexpectedly, Nitzer Ebb back and better than ever!, 4 April 2010
By 
This review is from: Industrial Complex (Audio CD)
Nitzer Ebb were great fun back in the day with their self defining British electro-industrial sound. Either live or sneeking into a club play list here and there, Nitzer Ebb would induce a frenzied dance from not only those who knew who they were.

In 1991 NE produced "Ebbhead" which was a great rounded album, moving on from the industrial dance anthems to add a set of deeper songs with great hooks. Unfortunately the well documented deterioration in the working relationship between Bon Harris and Doug McCarthy produced a shocker in the 1995 "Big Hit". They then just fizzled out.

After a kiss and make up, a greatest hits jaunt occurred in 2006, but blink and you missed it.

Amazingly, after all this time, Nitzer Ebb have tapped into the years of pent up creativity and produced a cracking album in "Industrial Complex" which is by far their best work. Bon Harris's soundscapes and new drummer Jason Payne have produced some thumping tunes such as "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Payroll" and "Down on your Knees", but a maturity in the song writing of Doug McCarthy shines through offering a fully rounded package. Songs such as "Going Away" and "I am Undone" demonstrate an emotive side to Nitzer Ebb that they have only toyed with in the past.

If you are lucky enough to even find out that Nitzer Ebb have new material out, do not hesitate to buy this CD. It is proof that there is some great music out there still, you just have to root around for it sometimes.

Enjoy!
