Top Sounds - L

LOST TAPES - Lost Tapes {Rockstar} There’s a lot of bands doing this kinda Post-Punk stuff at the moment and while Germany’s LOST TAPES certainly hold the attention, they don’t reach the standard set by of the likes of SPECTRES or ESTRANGED. The main fault is in the guitar sound - it’s like the fucking Edge outta U2... So much so I kept expecting to hear a cover of ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’. Positive points though are some good moments of drama and a vocalist that has a decent range and variation about his voice, being equally effective with dour introspection and a soaring sneer (check ‘Out Of Sync’). Highlights among the eight tracks are ‘Gross National Product’ that saw less of that U2-esque guitar, a disjointed but effective rhythm (almost FUGAZIish in parts) and great double tracked vocal, the JOY DIVISION-esque ‘Bomb Drop’ and ‘Touch The Void’ that’s driven along by a powerful bass line and sees the guitars going off a’la John McGeoch (SIOUXSIE, ‘Album’ era PiL). Lyrically interesting too, just wish the guitar sound that dominates a lot of the album could have been a little more... bruised. (20.01.18)
