Cesium_137 - Science and Sound
Futurepop Cesium_137 are one of those artists that continue to release great albums over and over again (part from the re-release of 'Advance/Decay', which I hated), but still seem to be unable to get the praise they deserve, at least not here in Europe.

For those of you who never heard the band, I guess it would not be too far fetched to compare them with Icon of Coil, dance floor electro. If you doubt, take a listen to "Run" and then tell me I'm wrong?

And just with their albums 'Elemental' and 'Identity' (the two albums I've heard with them before), 'Science and Sound' truly deliver. 10 strong tracks, no intros, no outros and no artsy instrumental in the middle, just 10 greatly linked tracks. I truly admire their chosen set list. Perfect.

I like how they mix it up and continue to keep if fresh, everything from the slower and more melancholic "Logic Bomb" to the harsher "Dead Letter" to the more happy and poppy "From Within", the perfect blend without every straying to far from the set path.

One or two tracks on this album only manages to go to good instead of great, and therefore I will not score this even higher, however, if you ever going to run head first in and experience Cesium_137, do it with 'Science and Sound', this is the best release so far.
