Not as good as their last two, but still cool,
This review is from: The Devil You and Me (Audio CD)
Few moments will resonate in my ears as when I discovered The Notwist a few years ago. I was able to feast on "Neon Golden" and "Shrink" like a ravenous vagrant at a royal feast. I've spent countless hours bobbing back and forth in appreciation to both those albums. Sadly, I've not yet be able to say the same for their latest venture.
Certainly, the sound of The (New) Notwist is there in all it's glory. It's just that it seems... well, droney and dare I say it, boring. Where "Neon Golden" was a fresh, "The Devil You and Me" just groans along. Gone are the hooks that get you singing along in your car hours after the CD has stopped spinning in your stereo.
This is still The Notwist... just without the twist.
