Both of them have, in their ways, explored the power of technology over the past three decades : Vince drawn always to the brighter, sunshine of analog synths, easily creating delicate structures of jauty, fast paced, and melodic pop where it always April 1984. Gore, on the other hand, gave the world such feelgood tunes as "Shake The Disease", "It's No Good", and "Enjoy The Silence", melding an immaculate production with a fetish for minor keys and chords, and vocals that try to make a disco out of an existential crisis. So... what you might expect with VCMG is an almost of literate, retro-futurist, morbid pop? No such luck.
Immaculately produced, VCMG is a dense hour of electronic exploration : the material - 10 or so pieces of instrumental motifs - created by email and from thousands of miles apart, sounds like a determined single entity. The undulating tones and rhythms could be a particularly fond return to form from a mid-range electronic outfit that makes a small living.
The pounding, slightly threatening "Lowly" begins the album : like all of this, made on old-fashioned, customised synthsets, tweaked and bent, with longstanding, elegant melody lines and immaculate rhythms, it sounds like the unholy, lovely union of two very different minds, with jaunty drums and melancholy strings, and a joy through repetition that only repeated exposure can bring.
"Spock" is utter Depeche Mode.Read more ›
I'm guessing you'd call it "techno" and other reviewers have complained about it being samey and like other "techno" artists but so what? I've listen to a lot of techno over the years and find a lot of it very identikit and lacking in any real personality. Listen to some compilation mix albums and it's hard to tell where ends and begins.
So, ignore the fact it doesn't sound like DM or Erasure and enjoy it on its own merits, it's worth it.
Get this cd, you won't be disappointed ;)

I was eager to hear this collaboration from two old friends! It's fantastic. A nice old school feel with the vintage synths. Really great instrumental dance flavoured techno tunes. Read morePublished 16 months ago by James Thorold
