Editorial Reviews

In the early 90's, PNE were one of the main forces in German Dark Electro scene with albums like Transmission, Visage De Plastique, Transmitted Memories, Strings Of Ice, Rauschen, and many others. PNE infiltrated dancefloors all over the world and toured extensively throughout Europe exciting the crowds with numerous hits. Maschinenmusik marks the return of the German legends! With uncompromising old-school EBM, harsh powerful German vocals, kicking distorted beats, and virulent Kraftwerk-like melodies, PNE overpowers you with an engulfing and explosive sonic experience building the bridge between the original Electro roots and 21st Century's less is more electronic movement. Maschinenmusik also features remixes by Wumpscut, Suicide Commando, Armageddon Dildos, and Solitary Experiments. On Metropolis Records.

Assemblage 23 has come a long way since its inception, pulling itself up from trying to land songs like Graverobber on samplers to becoming one of the most renowned acts in EBM. The reason A23 has managed to do it has been the quality of the sounds used as a mouthpiece for the band, and because the albums maintain a level one expects from a mainstay in their listening rotation. The full releases have been phenomenal, with pieces like Failure deservedly pushing the act into the spotlight and giving them a worldwide audience, and piece like Contempt and Defiance (not to forget the tracks from Addendum) adding so many quality pieces. The sound of the albums, the way they flow and the lyrical mastery; its all evolved as the act has come into its own. And the effort, of course, revolves around Tom Shear.

I really can't say enough about the material that Tom Shears release, nor can I hype him as much as he merits. He really has worked wonders with A23, remixing countless tracks from the likes of Pain Station (that Slaughterhouse mix off of Cold is WELL worth obtaining), Covenant, God Module and so many others, and he has also helped engineer wonders when it comes to the likes of Lost Signal (their album Catharsis is another gem that everyone desperately needs). With regard to his work with A23, Shear's crafted droves of quality EBM beatwork, keeping the motions moving to an almost always danceable beat, and he's done it while becoming really versed when in the art of introspection. That's possibly what I like about his work the most, because he gives his audience portions of his life that feel and hurt and that help him connect with others.

By far one of the best electronic albums that I've bought in a long time. Not to mention this album has one of the coolest, most original songs ever--30KFT. There aren't any songs on this album that I don't like. Tom Shear is a terrific songwriter, his melodies are exquisite, and his vocals are dark and moody. Complacent is my favorite song because it reminds me a lot of 80's Depeche Mode. I love the overall melancholy feel that the album puts out, though it's full of energy and has plenty of dance beats. Fans of Neuroticfish, Covenant, Angels and Agony, Imperative Reaction, and any 80's synth rock will definately like this album. Do yourself a favor and just buy it, you won't be disappointed.

It may sound a little fanboy-ish, but this Tom Sheer effort has become the standard by which all other music of this genre should be compared. More than two years after the release of this incredible disc, I still find myself listening to it on a regular basis. This is raw, emotional, powerful, and above all, FUN to listen to. Tom Sheer's career as Assemblage 23 shows a definitive progression... from the growling, angry, disgust found on his first album "Contempt" on up through "Storm", which is far more positive and upbeat. But don't get me wrong... we're not talking about fields of daisies and cute fluffy bunnies; not at all. Still, "Storm" shows a man who has come to terms with himself and his life and knows that he is in a better place now.

That's a lot to take away from a synthpop-electronica album, isn't it? Of course it's just my opinion, but I can really feel the emotion behind these songs. Sheer is a man who clearly puts his heart and his everything into his music, and that has never been more clearly represented than on this album. The content of every song is profound, thought-provoking, deep, and meaningful. This isn't silly junk about unrequited love, or formulaic warblings about dislike of government, or any other garbage found in most music today and in the last decade. This is REAL. This is about a man who has faced many challenges and has overcome them, and the result is this inspirational and uplifting disc that makes you start dancing and never stop. And it'll make you cry, too... the final track, 30Kft, is Assembage 23's most heart-wrenching emotional song since "Disappoint" from the album "Failure". Truly, few musicians can adequately capture such a vast range of emotions and feelings in their work.

Every track is well-crafted, every song catchy.

I laugh at the many modern "stars" who try to uplift us with their pop foolishness. Do you HEAR ME?! I LAUGH AT YOU!!

This album is awesome. The lyrics are heartfelt, the beats cold, fast, and euphoric. It's uplifting as hell, too- it seems to raise your consciousness to a higher level.

I'm fairly new to Tom Shear work, i will admit. But in comparison to other EBM Acts this is really good, and in comparison to electronica as a whole this is AWESOME.

It might seem risky, but do yourself the favor of buying this album. It's "legit".

I've read reviews of this album in which the reviewer complains that the songs all seem too similar. It's true that it appears Mr. Shear has found a groove with this album, and he settles into that groove nicely for the length of the work. The lyrics are easily on par with Tom's other works, reflecting a depth of thought and emotion not common to the EBM genre. And EBM is what this is: the stomping beats (and the occasional "oonz oonz") and the lighting-fast synths certianly make this body want to move. Tom Shear found a great style for this album, and he sticks with it, to a very successful end.

The only weak track on this album is "You Haven't Earned It," and the only reason I consider it a weak track is its lack of meaning. "Infinte" is a lyrically beautiful ode to the majesty of the universe, "Ground" is an emotionally-charged appeal for mental peace, and every other song carries some weight behind it except for "You Haven't Earned It." Granted, it's a nice song, and the style fits into Tom's style on this album, but a send-up of misbehaving musical artists just doesn't fit.

The one song that breaks this delicious mold is "30Kft." This song is a heart-wrenching answering-machine message from a man whose plane is about to go down. It's slow, intense, and superbly sorrowful. I have to work myself up emotionally every time I prepare to listen to it.

This album is Assemblage 23's best work, a logical continuation from "Contempt," "Failure," and "Defiance." With Mr. Shear's music's steady progression in dancability, musical complexity, and emotional power, I simply cannot wait for more new material from him.

You should buy this album without a doubt.
