ALBUM E-WAVE, BMG RELEASE:
FEBRUARY 12, 2001 REVIEW: MARCH 27, 2001
Century is one of those bands it always has a tendency to rain on. The
clouds are until the end of time dark, whenever the members decide to leave their
apartments and slowly walk the streets in black leather
coats with their heads down.
Depression is the key word. The music is played in different shades of grey
as if colour is not invented.
too much influences from Depeche Mode and
Paradise Lost, which they by the way probably never would admit. They are also too
pretentious and way down in the dumps. They are
not aware that their own creativity is efficiently being choked by their
scariness of producing something original, that may fail to deliver the
memorandum they are in search of. Century is not taking any risks what so ever on “Melancholia”.
A few good songs, sure, but in the long
run: Oh so boring. “Melancholia” may appeal to people madly in love with
German goth rock, but it really means nothing to me.
