ALBUM WASP FACTORY RELEASE:
NOVEMBER, 2002 REVIEW: APRIL 29, 2003
1: - How much space is there on a CD?
Member 2: - A lot.
Member 1: - Alright! Let’s do what everybody else does and cram
it full with songs that should have been left off the album!
Member 3: - Yeah, good idea!
Member 1: - Let’s see then, how many songs have we got? 17? Should
make it impossible for any listener to remember any of the tracks.
Member 2: - Make all of them sound similar too - a really smart move I
Member 3: - Yes! And we squeeze in every buzz genre at the moment - futurepop,
electroclash and some breakbeat, you name it.
wouldn’t be too surprised if this is what it sounded like in the
studio when Sneaky, Crash and Dr A (probably not Doctor Alban) in Goteki
made their album “Goteki O/S”.
The album isn’t all bad, but very unimaginative. Some melody hooks
even manage to maintain my interest after the song has ended, but all
in all this is, well..., derivative crap. The token breakbeat track sounds
like it has been made after a template, as does indeed all the compositions.
I have a feeling this might work well in the clubs, but there are so many
other bands out there that does this kind of music much better. Did I
mention the production is rather sloppy too?
