All U Need Is Love Industrial, Electropunk Doktryn In the promo sheet for French Doktryn they harshly demands from us that we should like this or pretty much stick it where the sun don't shine. I'm sorry, but I don't like it and here's why. Together with their industrial punk sound the surely have the garage feeling, and I'm not talking about the cool and underground feeling, I'm talking about Rec+Play cassette player quality straight from a garage filled with half empty paint cans to reflect the sound. They also deliver a straight in your face attitude, but instead of being the cool kid in school with the skull t-shirt and mohawk, it more comes off as the screaming and annoying kid with ADHD that would have killed his pet for your attention. In this 4 track EP there are a few glimpses of like that manages to squeeze trough like tiny rat holes in a cardboard paper. The intro sample for the first track "All U Need Is Love" as well as the first minute of "The Taxi Driver" where the beats, melody and well placed samples does a great job. But overall the wall of sound is too dirty for me to be able to digest it properly. All and all, it is not getting that much love from me, no matter how much U need it. I rather give it to Pouppée Fabrikk that in my mind managed to capture the essence of the industrial punk'ish sound. Long live their memory. 250
