Industrial Nation (1997)

Review Source: Industrial Nation, Issue 16
Artist: Recherche’ (pre-t.o.t.s.)
Release: Mettle
Label: Facility Records

Interesting release that goes all over the place. For instance, the opening track, “Pointing Fingers, Placing Blame,” starts out in a dark, quiet electro vein, introduces electric bass and guitar samples, then goes into a waltz time signature, and then back into a manic 4/4 floor smashing tempo. The other tracks sprawl across similarly vast territory. It’s nice to hear an electronic artist who works lots of changes into his music rather than hitting ‘loop’ on his sequencer. May be a bit too quirky for some, but those in search of fresh sounds could certainly do worse. . . .
