This album embraces everything that I hold near and dear about electronic/EBM. Its gritty. It really is; and, it was the only effort by this project to really break away from what would eventually become Bill Leeb's signature sound. Its really Theme music with some really fun and dark singles mixed in there. Eventually Noise Unit began to sound like everything else. It became this FLA/Delerium soup; but, this album stood apart. Truly one of my favorites.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Noise Unit was initially a collaborative effort between FLA's Bill Leeb and Klinik's Mark Verhaeghen that focused more on early 80s soundscapes and percussive dance tracks than the more disposable material Leeb was grinding out under the FLA moniker at that time (I hated Balch-era FLA). I actually avoided this album for the longest time solely because someone on an FLA message board wrote that it was similar to Leeb's Balch-era FLA material, and given it came out the same year as the awful Gashed Senses and Crossfire, I just dismissed it without ever actually listening to it - a mistake I later regretted.

Of course, I had the duo's 1990 followup, Response Frequency, but that record added Rhys Fulber (who by that point had replaced Michael Balch in FLA) and Revolting Cocks' Luc Van Acker to the lineup. Plus, it came out the same year as FLA's Caustic Grip (which actually shared the same drum tacks), and marked the beginning of a rather prolific period for Leeb in which he could seemingly do no wrong. So when working my way backwards through Leeb's catalogue (with the exception of Leeb's Delerium output), I used 1990 as the official line of demarcation between what to buy and what to avoid...and, in so doing, this one slipped through the cracks. Fortunately for me, I was able to snag a copy years later.

For one thing, I'm not sure that the album relies on Leeb's usual `collage' method of recycling sampled bits into something new. I could be wrong. It just sounds a little too stripped down for that. There's some danceable stuff on it - the first three tracks, "Deceit", "Struktur", and "Collapsed" are all straightforward industrial dance numbers, complete with vocals, but they're catchier than anything found on the early FLA records.
