Moving Hands reviews Decomposition: Reinventing Minefield.

MovingHands.net

   ” …I haven’t heard the original versions so I have no idea how this sounds compared to that, but this sounds great. The vocals performed by Tamara Kent are great, a clear and crisp voice, at times invincible, indestructible, at times terribly fragile, as if she could break any second. Tamara’s voice reminds me a lot of Tori Amos, especially on “It’s too late”, where the piano treatment resembles the sound of Amos as well, only the surroundings here are a bit more industrial.
    The remix provided by Dead Poets Society is truly magnificent, ever growing, ever changing, the vocals layered over simple electronics and great noisy beats with the piano floating on top…”

Wrapped in Wire reviews The Electric Haze

Wrapped in Wire

This act creates great electronic instrumentals. Their music is very full and well textured with a lot happening in it. Since these are instrumental tracks relying simply on the music without vocals, the music needs to be good to hold your interest. And the music is superb. It mixes a lot of different genres within it such as EBM, techno, trance, tribal, ambient, experimental, etc.

This is pure electronic music created with programming, sampling and synths. There is a lot of variety throughout this release with each and every track sounding different. Some stand out more than others, but everything is good here.

There is a mixture of structured music and experimental music to be found here. I do find the structured music to be a little easier to listen to and enjoy. But the experimental music is interesting in its own way as well.

If you enjoy varied electronic music without any vocals, this CD is for you.
