Like clockwork Ronny Moorings and the Clan from Amsterdam have synthesized yet another melodic masterpiece and while Xymox appears to have found its North American home on the Metropolis label, there is no mistake that this is indeed the Clan of Xymox circa the 4 A.D. years. Breaking Point is an eclectic fusion of both modern and classic styles with memorable compositions that should delightfully appeal to fans of vintage C.O.X.

The first two tracks, "Weak in My Knees" and "Calling You Out" made their anticipated debut months ago on the single with the title track sounding more like a cut off their more contemporary electro-goth albums Farewell or Notes From the Underground but the crux of Breaking Point's acoustical arcane delights and somber vocals sound hauntingly like remnants of long lost recording sessions or forgotten B-sides unearthed from Subsequent Pleasures, Medusa, or their self-titled mid-eighties album, specifically on tracks such as "She Is Dangerous" "Eternally" "We Never Learn" "Cynara" and "Pandora's Box" that evoke such forlorn memories of the Clan's distant yesterdays that will send you reminiscing into a euphoric sentimental nostalgia... breaking out the 4 A.D. albums and kicking it old-school immediately thereafter.

Coming full circle with the post-modern dance track "Be My Friend" would almost immediately be identified with a trendier dance mix by Enigma with its flamboyant use of the operatic O Fortuna chorus if it weren't (thankfully) for Ronny's reverent vocals to elevate it far above the cliches of mainstream synthpop and giving it an appropriately resplendent sonic substance.

This is the most perfect album of Clan Of Xymox , combining the old with the new : a journey through sonic landscapes , alternating , sad and lonely places come to mind but also cynical lyrics like "Be my Friend" , obviously about someone Ronny wants to be left alone by:)

Cynara, Pandora's Box , We Never Learn, Eternally are the most beautiful slow ballads I have heard in a long time. The energetic Weak In My Knees , What's Going On and Under The Wire proves Clan Of Xymox are pumping out dance floor killers with every release. One of the most gripping songs to me is Calling You Out , a song about most likely the Gothic Scene or maybe Ronny's friends..maybe we get an answer in an interview on that one. In Short a PERFECT album and I could not wish for more. This band amazes me with every release and I think they are the leading forces of todays musical stream!

"Breaking Point" is possibly their most perfectly blended album yet. Featuring searing guitar lines, strong bass sounds mixed with atmospheric and powerful synths and Ronny Mooring's deep, sensuous and harmonic voice it delivers all of Xymox's trademark sounds and references offered in their iconic and unique style. This 'classic' sound is no more evident than on album opener and first single "Weak In My Knees" - a club hit par excellence : mighty tunes, powerful chorus line, a perfect sing-a-long melody which catches the listener in an instant. The following track "Calling You Out" shows them from their darker, even more aggressive side with straight guitar lines and no compromises, while "She's Dangerous" is yet another dancefloor hit - complete with infectious synth lines, driving rhythms and a permenant hook.

Clan of Xymox are one of those bands that I have been aware of for many years. I've seen them live a couple of times and enjoyed their music very much. Clan of Xymox provide soundtracks for both the dance floor and at home, offering dance beats for the former and introspective atmospheres for the latter.

I get the strangest urge to wave my hands aloft during "Weak In My Knees". The synthesisers are to the fore, with a touch of Vangelis circa Bladerunner. While much dance music is anonymous, singer Ronny's voice gives the music a human quality. There's some near submerged guitar, which gives the song an edge. "Calling You Out" has the synthetic textures of early Simple Minds. Whether this song is about duels, cricket or something else entirely is not satisfactorily made clear. There's distorted guitar, which keeps things interesting.

"She's Dangerous" abandons the harsh sound for a more strummed-acoustic guitar-led style. There are still electronics in the background - and occasionally in the foreground - but you no longer feel you're been bludgeoned by dance beats. Monks go 'ahhh' in the background, which is a selling point for me.She's Dangerous is I think a salutary tale of the dangers of Internet dating: "I met her on-line. She took a step back. I saw her undress. She's like a goddess..."

With its soaring synthesisers, cyclical bass and filigreed guitar "We Never Learn" sounds like The Cure circa The Head On The Door. Despite its depressing outlook - this song gives "Sinking" a run for its money in ability to drain all hope from you - this song is thrilling. Elsewhere "Be My Friend" sounds spookily like New Order, crossed with the demonic chants of Carmina Burana.
