2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 8 Jun. 2008
This review is from: SOOL (Audio CD)
I was looking forward to Ellen Allien's latest album, based on her previous ones having a great electronic sound, most noticably in my opinion on "Orchestra of Bubbles" with Apparat, which had a brilliant atmosphere to it.

However, Sool, in my opinion is a big disappointment. I'm all for doing something different, but Sool is just confusing and isn't a great display of Allien's talents not only as a DJ, but as a singer. Tracks like "Way Out" and "Bubbles" from the past used her voice to great effect, but this doesn't come through at all on Sool. "Caress" was promising at first, but there is nothing really here that excites at all. As for the overall sound, it feels very weak to me, and there is no song that stands out.

I am surprised by Sool, especially considering this is by Ellen Allien, and it really doesn't sound like her. It is most definately the inferior album in comparison with previous works "Thrills" and "Orchestra of Bubbles" to name a few, which captured the imagination of listener, and I would recommend all her music, except Sool.
