The best Synth Pop and genre-related albums 2012

Best albums 2012

10. Motor – Man Made Machine – (3.45/5 stars)

motor man made machine album

I must hon­estly say that the album of Motor without the rep­res­en­ted guest sing­er had not inter­ested me. And the tracks with Martin L. Gore, Gary Numan and Douglas Mccarthy accord­ingly also my high­lights. The sounds, samples and com­pos­i­tions have def­in­itely poten­tial, but without under­laid lyr­ics the songs for me are soulless.

9. Santa Hates You – It's Alive! – (3.5/5 stars)

santa hates you its alive

Santa Hates You is some­thing for the dance­floor. Although the disc has a strong impact EBM, how­ever, it is very pop merged by sound. For me the concept works. Unfortunately miss­ing more blast hits like Scum on the album, oth­er­wise it would cer­tainly be a much high­er rat­ing have been possible.

8. Faderhead – The World Of Faderhead – (3,58/5 stars)

With Faderhead one hand there is some­thing music­ally in the face and on the oth­er hand flat­ter quiet and slow tracks your mind. Which side do I find bet­ter now, I do not really know at Faderhead. The hard tracks are as usu­al great. The soul­ful songs have a lot of poten­tial. Overall, I like the album very.

7. Essence Of Mind – Indifference – (3.64/5 stars)

essence of mind indifference

If you like synth pop and gui­tar, then you can not ignore the genre elec­tro rock. And then the ears with Essence Of Mind should be noisy. Because the album Indifference is a first class elec­tro rock album. Certainly there are some aver­age songs on this album, but over­all this is a great album that rocks!

6. Enter Shikari – A Flash Flood Of Color – (3.7/5 stars)

enter shikari a flash flood of colour

A Flash Flood Of Color is an album that you jump­ing into your face like a tor­nado filled with mum­mi­fied bears with shark heads. And so crazy as it sounds, just as is Enter Shikari's music style. Metal, Punk, Dubstep, Electrorock, Synthpop, everything finds use in Enter Shikari.

5. Formalin – Wasteland Manifesto – (3.71/5 stars)

formalin wasteland manifesto

This is a cold and hard elec­tro album with sounds and lyr­ics of an apo­ca­lyptic, dark future. Wasteland Manifesto is a great album where 4 tracks do have a 5 star rat­ing. But the intro The Infernal Machine and the inter­ludes Fruits Of Evil and Burst Into Fire drags the end res­ult for me a bit down.

4. Assemblage 23 – Bruise – (3.8/5 stars)

assemblage 23 bruise

Purest Futurepop on a very high level present us Assemblage 23. The album is con­sist­ently a blast. The track The Noise Inside My Head is and will cer­tainly be a dance­floor clas­sic. The album also reminds me a little of the good songs of VNV Nation, only here they are con­tinu­ously on the album.

3. Clan Of Xymox – Kindred Spirits – (3.82/5 stars)

clan of xymox kindred spirits

A whole album full of great cov­er songs in Dark Wave garb presents Clan Of Xymox. Generally, all the songs are very well inter­preted on the album, but of course I have my favor­ites. These are eas­ily recog­nized by the 4 and 5 star rat­ing. If you like cov­er songs from clas­sics, then you should def­in­itely once a listen here.

2. De/Vision – Rockets + Swords (Limited Edition) – (3.83/5 stars)

devision rockets and swords

De/Vision latest out­put is Rockets + Swords. A new De/Vision album you can always buy blindly, because you know exactly what you get. Beautiful, melod­ic syn­thpop of the best kind. And Rockets + Swords ful­filled this goal.

1. Endless Shame – Elevator – (4/5 stars)

Best album 2012

The Futurepop impact in the cur­rent Endless Shame album is unmis­tak­able. Fat beats and crisp sound, so must be the sound like! I Am Nothing, Universe and Winter Skies are the abso­lute high-fly­er on the album. Unfortunately, the qual­ity and ori­gin­al­ity sub­sides at the end of the album. But nev­er­the­less I love this work.
