Flatline - Enjoy The Noise
EBM, Electro Flatline's 'Enjoy The Noise' is a pretty varied experience. It ranges from really good tracks to, well, let?s just say poor. It starts out great with the track "The Warning" and then the alright track "Infected". But something happens with "The Law", the music is good, but the vocals are just horrible. It almost sounds like a constipated opera singer and even I feel embraced by it, and I'm not the one singing.

The bad vocals continue with the title track "Enjoy the Noise", "Angel of Death", "Machinery", "Lies", but suddenly turn better in the end with the track "Love". I can't understand it. Is it a guest singer? Is it very old tracks mixed with new ones? Can't get a grip and it's sad, because the music parts have some great melodies and flow.

A favourite of mine is the outro track called "Sprungwellen", I don't know how to describe it, it is an instrumental whistle track that's just crazy... and epic! If you get a chance to check it out, seriously, do so, I've been humming on it for days and funny enough, it's the track I will remember this release by.

If Flatline would up their vocals a few notches, they would actually be a good band, since the music parts are up to speed.
