Review Flash

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Of course, if we were to apply this as rule to all the music we hear, we will end up with just a small bunch of great music and an infinite entourage of flatterers. Maybe in the end it is like that. In a person's journey through music there is that first approach, then is the liking of the music, the curiosity, or just the pure hedonistic pleasure, and then the idea of playing. For some the journey ends there, for others the next step is to actually start composing, writing, putting it out… but the end product rarely is different, we console ourselves thinking that each composition has a tinge of the composer's personality or the band, but is it really? ‘Close II Death’ by WYNARDTAGE is but a collection of well-known sounds and bands before them, all in the realm of synth pop and techno exploring balladry, aggrotech, sampling, and theatricality, aspiring much and offering too little. Yet, the objective is clear, as their press release notes state “[the album's tracks] provide for clubbing and excitement on the floors,” at which they succeed elongating and perpetuating what so many bands before them have already established as an immovable genre.

Conclusion: WYNARDTAGE´s ‘Close II Death’ is a good addition to any club´s collection for an electro-night, but for your own connection beyond the techno aspirations, maybe not so much.

Rating: 5 / 10
