5.0 out of 5 stars A full-scale MDB experience, 8 Aug. 2000
This review is from: 34.788% Complete (Audio CD)
I know most metal fans hate this album, because it's a "sell out" and bla bla bla- fine, there's more of it for us, the true music lovers! MDB never stopped to amaze me for the last 7-8 years, and this release is no exception. This time they made one of my wishes come true, which was to hear MDB bringing electronic/sampler-based elements into their distinctive style. And gosh, do they do it good...Lush, often filtered keyboard pads, fat effected guitars and vocals, looped gated drums..."Heroin Chic" is the second best here, after "The Whore..." ( I know I'm going to get bomb mail for this ), and the production on both songs could make Massive Attack and Faithless proud. "Der Uberlebende" is a breathtaking, almost orchestral track in the true MDB tradition; "The Stance...", "Apocalypse Woman" and "Base Level Erotica" make the conventional metal riffing sound astonishingly different; the closing number, "Under Your Wings.." is a dizzy swirl of guitar noise, incredibly harmonic and moving. As for the lyrics, to be honest, I liked Aaron's previous Post-symbolist/Neo-Baudelearian self explorations better, but I mostly like the music itself, so I wasn't really concerned with the lyrics. In short, "34.788%Complete" is another MDB masterpiece. Highly recommended for those who like music for it's being music, not unaudiable cacophony with a cartoonish posture!
