Ionic Vision - Complete Isolation
Old School EBM My Belgian homeboys Ionic Vision have now released a remix version of their 2008 album 'Bitter Isolation'. Even though it is far from my favourite album from these guys, I still was kind of curious of this remix album. I concluded that it could turn out in two ways; either it was going to be really cool or pretty terrible. I was hoping to say that it is the first option, but unfortunately I can't.

I can't really say that I like any of the remixes of this album and there is most definitely not any track that is better or in any way improves the original. The "Virus Mix" of "Die Macht" is pretty alright, but that's about it. It seems like no love at all was put into most of the other remixes. Bad vocal and music effects and unvaried music composure is two of the things I have problems with. I really hate to admit it, since I really love what Sven and Andy have released over the years, ever since I heard their 'Prophecy' Maxi CD many years ago.

Sadly, after these few lines I'm about to write, I will probably not going to listen to this album again.
