Similar to the previous album ‘Indifference‘, even ‘The Break Up’ is highly recommended to every Electrorock fan. Overall very powerful with a few exceptions. The songs ‘Escape‘ and ‘Wrong‘ are really strong songs.
I know it could be really difficult to have a full album on this high level. And at least it’s the personal music flavour that counts, but I really expected more from the ‘Indifference’ successor.
Choose your remixer wisely
The four remix version from ‘Escape’, ‘Wrong’, ‘Hate’, and ‘The Other Side’ are quite different at the end of the album. While the remix version of ‘Escape’ is much more worse than the original, the remix version of ‘The Other Side’ manages to convince me completely. Also ‘Technomancer‘ did a great job on remixing the song ‘Wrong’.
Save money at the wrong end
There is one big negative thing that don’t belong to the rating itself. I’ve never seen such a cheap plastic package for a CD. Why not using a simple jewel case instead? Just to save some production money? I’m really disappointed. Shame on you Alfa Matrix!
