Certainly something a little different. The opening track “Angst” reminds me vocally of the 1980’s Depeche Mode, but musically it has a strong Radiohead flavor. It’s a very in your face track, especially when compared to the other two tracks, but it has that certain something, which appeals to my adventurous side.

The second track “R.T.A” has a more mellow side to it and an interesting sound of trumpet or is it cornet, that pops in throughout. There’s also some very inventive sounds and breaks in this track, especially about a two minute in, when you get a full drum and bass style interruption.

The final track “Bit-Part Actor”, finds Iodo on the backfoot, with something a lot more soothing to the ears, in this lengthy, nigh on 8 minute track. This for me is the better side of the band and I’d much prefer to hear this kind of sound develop. The music is relaxed and tranquil, and the vocals compliment it nicely.

Conclusion : A bit of a hodgepodge of tracks, but enjoyable nonetheless. Worth buying for the last track alone.
