Incidentally, the new Die Warzau album is fucking awesome, but I'm not at all surprised. The production values here are top notch, and it shows a great pop sensibility that few former industrial acts can manage.
What is surprising is how good the new Alan Parsons is. well, maybe it's not surprising how good it is; his records are always good. What's surprising is how relevant this release is. From what I understand, he brought in his son Jeremy, as well as Uberzone and The Crystal Method to bring a modern sound. It seems to have worked, because there are songs on this album that would be at home on a Delirium or haujobb cd! Amazing stuff.
