COMPILATION ALBUM COP, SSC/PLAYGROUND RELEASE: OCTOBER 25, 1999 (SCANDINAVIA) REVIEW: NOVEMBER 3, 1999
This Danish band have been around since 1991. They've worked with persons like Jean-Luc
De Meyer and Claus Larsen.
When I listen to this good EBM I sometimes can refer
to Front 242, like in the masterpiece “Israel”. This track actually has good
lyrics, which is pretty rare when it comes to EBM. Sometimes the spirit of
KMFDM is present, like in “All Around the Watchtower”. Even the vocals sound
similar, but this is definitely better than most of the KMFDM stuff. When
Birmingham 6 use guitars, they are balanced and really great so you won't have
to cope with that irritating metal feeling.
This compilation consists of material from their
early, now deleted releases. Most of the songs are definitely strong, but the
two new remixed tracks, feel unnecessary.
