ALBUM ALFA MATRIX RELEASE: DECEMBER
14, 2001 REVIEW: DECEMBER 6, 2001
duo Regenerator hasn't made a great name for itself overseas. And
hearing this, the fifth album, I kind of understand why.
Take two singers, male and female, with distinctive different
voices, take some European body music, mainly Front 242 and mix it with ambient techno from the same continent and you've
got an idea of how this sounds. Think Enya doing half of the vocals on "Rhythm of Time".
This isn't a bad album, I find
myself programming "War", "God Is on My Side" and
"Shores of Forever", dreaming myself away to some B-rated eighties' sci-fi flick, but this isn't great
either. We've heard it before, like 15 years ago, and all of it didn't sound good the first time through either. Why should I want
to listen to the remix?
