The Saint Paul - Rewind The Time
Futurepop Do not fret all you devil worshiping evildoers, even though the name The Saint Paul might bring thoughts of a gospel choir, they deliver a solid EP/MCD with Futurepop that is one the harder side.

The music of The Saint Paul in this release will remind you of Assemblage 23 or perhaps Colony 5's later releases, together with a classic synthpop voice. However, the music is a bit too sterile, more sterile than it needs to be, I would have suggested they filled out the sound a bit more to give a much more massive soundscape. Even though it's far from flat, there's some empty spaces that could have used some fill out. Mostly noticed in the fourth, and otherwise good, track "Damned to Fail".

In 'Rewind The Time' you will get five tracks and two remixes. The five original tracks are all of good and great quality, where the fast paced "Unempathic" is a favorite together with the opposite slow and track "Drowning". Listen to the later one with earphones on a high volume, goose bumps promised.

One of the remixes is the "Tortosa Remix" by Heimataerde on the title track "Rewind The Time". This track could probably be seen as a good stamp to put on a release to attract people familiar with Heimataerde, because unfortunately, the remix itself is of poor quality. Adding some base, some vocoders and work is complete, right? He even removes the amazing chorus melody that is the best thing about the track. Far from good enough.

All and all, German The Saint Paul delivers a strong EP that lives just on the other side of the border from an 8. Highly recommended you check this one out.
