I'd listened to these tapes perhaps a dozen times and you can rest assured that if they give me the thumbs-up, you will be able to hear a slice of this on the next SOFT WATCH cassette. This album has only seven tracks on it, although it does seem to have more. Many of them are quite long, and all are studio quality. Side one (or 'red') opens with a decidedly evil noise full of altered voice before flicking into "Malaria", which has a gravelly-voiced vocal line (taped voice) occasionally offering quips like 'you Son Of A Bitch' & 'I believe in murder / I believe in pain' over a fairly complex composition which brings people like NEW ORDER & FRONT 242 to mind, while remaining their own unique selves. The next track "Quietus" brings NEW ORDER to mind once more - in their more melodic vein, or more to the point O.M.D. playing one of their melodic, meandering album tracks like "Sealand", only this is perhaps a little more exiting. The more you listen to it, the more you hear in it. "Firewalker" follows this introduced by another dark Industrial segment. It's a much darker sound which fairly booms out of the speakers. Again it reminds me of the above comparisons, with perhaps a little more ANTLER-SUBWAY-type sound. Vocals tucked into he background bring ADI NEWTON to mind. The 'red' side closes with "Strain", a huge and very dark instrumental, proving once again how good NAGAMATZU are, yet having little obvious 'influence'. The second ‘white’ side opens with “Legion”, a fairly upbeat piece, again fairly complex in construction. A deep voice occasionally offers 'Every spectre from Hell' and some dark 'n’ deadly dialogue (presumably about or by a murderer). “Last night something came from the stars / Something more terrible than Death itself" opens “Corabella” which is a rather martial instrumental piece with a bludgeoning beat. Medium-paced E.B.M. with soft pastel overtones. “Threshold” closes the album with what sounds like a sample from CLOCK DVA’ s “Buried Dreams” set to a beat from “Love’s Secret Domain”. After this it becomes a little more complex, yet remaining simplistic enough to be atmospheric. It’s probably the strangest track on the album, but well-put-together. From the lazer-printed cover in you know this album will be something good. How good doesn’ t become obvious untiI a minute or so in, then you’re hooked. This is the darker side of Electronic Pop music - you never know, they might make it into the charts. Anyway, buy this tape - it’s as good as any vinyl / CD you’ll come across - and probably better!
