ALBUM EASTWEST RELEASE: APRIL,
2001 REVIEW: APRIL 24, 2001
German electro stars Project Pitchfork are veterans, relatively seen.
They've released a number of albums and their music has inspired several
other bands. Personally, I've considered them to be a band with
great potential and talent. Worth noticing, is their sense for writing
When I fed my poor ears with the first single from this album, "Existence",
I didn't exactly leap into the sky in a euphoric state. Now, when I've
heard the entire album I establish that there are a couple of songs that
are pretty fucking far from okay. The second single "Timekiller" is also
a letdown in the same fashion, although the song is basically a nice piece of work. A remix without the guitars would probably be nice. These tracks do
not give this album justice. Boring electro songs with cave-dweller guitars.
The album takes off for the stars with "Daimonion - You Hear Me in Your
Dreams", which is a nice electro song. This is how I suppose most
Project Pitchfork fans want them to sound. The real hit song is "We Are
One (Mirror Split up into Pieces)". It is a perfect pearl with catchy
synth patterns and the characteristic vocals. The fact that it is very
danceable makes me think that this will be the song we will hear most in the
clubs. "Drone State" is the song which sticks out the most. It is an electro
masterpiece and for some reason, it sounds more inspired by the eighties than the others.
It has these cool marching drums and a general melancholy sounding very
honest. It's that kind of song that makes you grateful for the repeat
button on your CD player.
