Enter EBM, Electro Gecko Sector Stefan: -"Hey Gerrit! I want to be frontman of an electro/EBM band! How do i work this?" Gerrit: - "Oh, thats easy. I still have these instrumental versions of old Funker Vogt songs. Just sing over them!" Stefan: - "Eehmmm, those are Funker Vogt tracks. The people will take notice!" Gerrit: - "I just change the presets of the synths! Nobody will notice. This is how i make Funker Vogt albums since "Machinezeit" anyway." Stefan: - "Another problem is also i really can't sing. I sound like i have a constant cold and can't keep tune." Gerrit: - "Thats also no problem. I have lots of effects, and now i finally have a chance to test out this new autotune plugin i got!" Stefan: - "OK! Lets do it! This is so going to work!" Gerrit: - "If we are finished this afternoon i give Out of Line a call. They release all that Funker Vogt crap, they release this as well!" And so we have an album of Gecko Sector, which is Stefan Winkel on vocals, and Gerrit Thomas of Funker Vogt fame who made the music. The problem with all the stuff Gerrit Thomas has made in the last 15 years is that it all sounds the same. The same sounds, the same chord progressions, the same beats and so on. Musically Gecko Sector is the same, and sounds the same as Funker Vogt. If Jens Kastel would have sung these songs it would have been a Funker Vogt album, and i would have given it a 4 because he has a better voice. Funker Vogt and its main producer Gerrit Thomas have become a joke and by releasing side projects which are just carbon copies of Funker Vogt with inferior vocals the joke only gets bigger. Mr Thomas needs to seriously rethink his music making strategies or go do something else instead of boring EBM lovers worldwide with repeating himself over and over. Album still gets a 3 because production is very good. 250
