AFTER THE FALL
ALBUM NINTHWAVE RELEASE: JUNE, 2000 REVIEW: JUNE 29, 2000
You need a time machine to fully appreciate this, the first Ganymede offering. Destination? Well, the early eighties, of course. It actually sounds like it was released back then, both musically and production wise. Often shamefully simple, and sometimes with that slightly annoying half talking/half singing type of voice. A qualified guess is that Vince Clarke, Robert Marlow, ODW and other early eighties minimalistic synthpop is the main inspiration source.
This said, "After the Fall" still holds some very nice tracks. "City Dweller", "You Look Like Someone I Know" and "Through the Darkest Night" are all melodic and catchy tunes, proving their obvious ability to create something interesting, something to wake you from the slumber of boredom.
A few impressive works and a few not so impressive ones vouch for a grade somewhere in the middle of the scale. Namely, five.
