Title: Utopia
Format: CD
Label: Archetype Multimedia (@)
Rated: *****
Formed by an Israeli guy called Tom Cohen, Observe & Control has been the first e.b.m. band formed in that land. I don't know if this could mean something talking about the quality of the music that Tom is playing but after listening to his first official album I could only say: wow! UTOPIA is a blast! Observe & Control is able to mix clean, catchy and melodic vocals with energetic and well produced electro tunes. Danceable but not sell out, the music that Tom produce take the highlights of bands like Wumpscut, Hocico, Apoptygma Berzerk and personalize i,t giving to it a bright new life. Each track is a hypothetic single but the album isn't like a best of, because the different atmospheres (darkness alternated with more danceable tunes) make of UTOPIA a varied album that is able to give new life to the genre that something is lacking of new ideas. Fourteen tracks for fifty five minutes of good music will make you forget the last compilation made out of remixes you bought and that you listened to only once!
