Totakeke - At The Train Station On A Saturday Evening
Industrial, Noise From the very first second I heard it I liked it. It begins with a quite dark and deep sound, it certainly doesn't draw your mind to a train station but it's good. That was a reference to the CD title.

This record have multiple faces, sometimes it's slow ambient sounds and then it goes to more rhythmic beats and over to a sound more like synthpop. And then again it's more plink-plonk and the music grows into more ambient again. The music is very varied and you won't hear the same thing over and over again. It suits almost anytime at the day, it just depends on which songs you choose.

Songs like "Chorale" and "Lament" with a chaotic and scratchy sound completes with songs like "Nostromo" and "The K Funk" which are a bit slower and more harmonic. But, the two best songs are still "Days Ago" and the final track "Steppe".

Straight through this is a really good CD. Even the layout at the booklet and case are great. The orange-red colour got a soft tone and the black lamppost dominates the picture totally.
