Aesthetic Perfection - A Violent Emotion
EBM, Electro-Industrial When you got a bunch of incoming material you have to review, it's hard to find the time to listen to other stuff than you receive, but an acquaintance of mine was nagging me about that I had to check out Aesthetic Perfection's latest album and since he didn't let go until I heard it, I thought I might as well do it... and he was right.

'A Violent Emotion' is really a superb album, all the nine tracks (I skipped the intro) is absolutely great tracks and pretty much flawless. It's a sweet symbiosis between the harsher and the more poppy sound, it's filled with attitude and finally some vocals that are not loaded with distortion and effects that are way too common in the harsher electro scene nowadays.

My favourite tracks are "Schadenfreude", "The Siren", "Pale" (even though a vocoder is used, but it is okay) and the most amazing "Living The Wasted Life", even the slower "A Quiet Anthem" works just great. It's more or less impossible to grow tired of this album and its re-listening value is of the charts. This is probably as close as a perfect 10 you will get.

Buy this album. I'm not kidding, buy it.
