"Shadow Mission HELD V" brings together re-workings of some classic hits with new material in the same vein. "Heldenplatz" kicks things off in a club shaped edition, while new track "Odyssey Europa" relies more on emotional moods and potent vocals by Elena Alice Fossi. Angelo Bergamini, Kirlian Camera mastermind, seems to have found his way back to the electronic pop roots, mixing straight forward pop with Italo disco and modern electropop. A new version of "Edges", for instance, shows powerful evolution, without losing the magic of the original.
Apparently, as the duo is in high demand, a comprehensive retrospective set is due out later in the year, compiling a band that seriously deserves a boost. Kirlian Camera are unique, cool and back with a vengeance!
