and_one_-_tanzomat

A broken promise

The album title says ‘Tanzomat’ which is a german word combination of the words ‘Dance’ and ‘Automatic’. I’m not an english native speaker, but maybe ‘Dance-o-matic’ works for you? If you have a more adequate translation, please use the comment section below.

But the album title promises more than it holds. Big hits are nowhere on the disc. There are however some good tracks on it, but in the end this is more an album for the hard ‘And One’ fan core.

A new low-point?

The first tones of ‘Dancing In The Factory’ reminds me somehow automatically on the melody of ‘I Just Can’t Get Enough’ by Depeche Mode. Overall the song sounds like a naïve child song. What happens here? In this case I’m out!

The only tracks I would recommend with a clear a good conscience is ‘Shining Star’ and ‘Sex Drive’. The only reason to publish this review, is the respect that I have for ‘And One’ for all their awesome early albums, before the ‘Virgin Superstar’ and following albums happens. The overall score is a smooth 3-star rating, and thus at the limit of the publication on Electrozombies.
