PRETERITION AGGREGATE

The music on this CD fluctuates from synthpop that lingers somewhere in between Depeche Mode and ABC, to darkwave dance, and then to Berlin cabaret that comes across sounding a little like Atlantic City lounge music. Despite this lack of cohesiveness, there are enough bright spots on this release that show promise and keep it interesting. The synthpop song ‘Foreign Calling’ opens up the CD in upbeat fashion. A track like ‘Serenade‘ also moves along the catchy synthpop line. Generally the rest of the synthpop tracks are nothing spectacular and are highly derivative of the 80’s moody synthpop and New Romantic movements, so the originality factor is sorely missed. ‘Girls In Black’ could have been a great song, but the chorus “Girls in black, heart attack,” sinks the song. Where the band hits hardest is darkwave songs like ’Bronze,’ ’Morbid Fortune,’ ’Hell Night,’ and the instrumental ’Neuzenvox.’ These songs best highlight the band’s ability to create atmosphere and energy, and certainly add a needed edge to the CD. ’Memories’ sounds too derivative of Marc Almond’s cabaret past. Although Gebrauche-Musik comes across in a theatrical manner, the cabaret ballad style is the least effective and a different approach should be considered. Overall, the band has the potential to make its mark on the electronic scene, but it needs to search out a specific avenue to take their sound to the next level.
