And One - S.T.O.P.
EBM, Futurepop I was probably one of the few writers that actually liked And One's 'Tanzomat'. Most people thought it was the new low of the band together with the album before that, 'Bodypop'. Running towards the general opinion, I liked the path And One had chosen and even though I think 'Bodypop' was the strongest of the both, even though 'Tanzomat' included some great tracks.

But when And One returns yet again with exact same format and style as before, but without the great tracks from the previous two like "The Sound of Believer", "Body Company", "Stand The Pain", "Save The Hate", "Angel Eyes", "The Aim Is In Your Head", "Sex Drive" and many more, even I grow impatient. 'S.T.O.P.' might very well be the low point for me, as many of you out there experience with 'Bodypop' or ' Tanzomat'.

I expected And One to feel refreshed, reborn and filled with spirit after leaving Out of Line, instead, they feel tired and uninspired. And even though Steve Naghavi has been in the game for so many years that he rarely write something that is utter bullcrap, the tracks are mediocre and lacks any hit potential or remembrance with the exception for "The End of Your Life" which is featuring Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb, Fixmer/McCarthy). But then again, Douglas holds up that track all by himself, so hard for And One to take any greater credit for it.

Perhaps "S.T.O.P. the Sun" and "Shouts of Joy" might be included in as well.

My writer college Björn at Blackvector (and former college at ex Neurozine.com) is finishing his review saying that "And One is back on track", I feel quite the opposite. Once again I might go against the tide. What do you guys think? Login and cast your rating.
