Boomkat Product Review:
Featuring what looks like the Sega Pirate TV mascot (you remember!) on it's cover, T.Raumschmiere's (aka Shitkatapult boss Marco Haas) new LP continues his convergent route to becoming the electro Marilyn Manson... Firmly declaring his intentions to make the "loudest pop record in history", Hass certainly gets off to a spirited start, with the brash sloganeering and electro-metal clash of previous single 'Sick Like Me'. Yet following this knee-in-the-nuts of megaphone vocals, 'All Systems Go!' and it's sub-Goldfrapp bounce make for an oddly muted next chapter that is neither loud nor groundbreaking, whilst 'Diving In Whisky' wears its drunken Futurism tattoo with considerable pride. Elsewhere, the title track comes across like NIN albeit viewed from the opposite side of the electronic/metal boundary, 'A Very Loud Lullaby' recasts Roxette (you heard!) for the post-electroclash generation, whilst 'An Army Of Watt' has the potential for chart success amongst its rubbery bass and foot stomping beats.
