At last, thanks to the two Daves (one from Ganymede and the other one from Ninthwave), I finally get my hands on the second Ganymede's album: EUROMANTIQUE.
I've got to thank them both because this is a great one for every Telex and 80's lover as I am. Starting from the main song which recalled me the Telex (which are remembered unfortunately only for their hit "Moskow Diskow") you can listen to a good sequence of potential hits like "It Not Enough", "Are You Falling In Love Again?" or "This Wasn't The First Time". Songs that will light your day with their melodies and analogue sounds. The band improved their songwriting since their first album and EUROMANTIQUE is here to prove that they are a great band. Along with the ten tracks you can also find two remixed versions of "Neon Rain" and "Only Pictures Cry" did by Electroquad and Cruxshadows. They did a rhythmic and kinda dreamy version of the first song and a more electro one of the second, but they respected the songs' structure. Anyway...do I need to suggest you to get this one???
CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE is the second CD of the band after 1999's "Happily Ever After". Picking up latest Depeche Mode atmospheres and personal humors the band creates an interesting album with thirteen songs. The only thing is that the songs tend to be a little similar, due to the limited use of different vocal solutions and because almost all the songs are mid tempos. This is a pity, because the band has got good skills into creating atmosphere and melodies. Best tracks for me: "Shame", "Wish You Dead" and "Searching For The Cure".
