Client - Command
Electro, Synthpop I remember the big fuzz about Client when they where about to do their first live performance at SAMA (Scandinavian Alternative Music Awards) in 2003 and the major thing was that they had been picked up by Depeche Mode member Andrew Fletcher. Well, we didn't get a new Depeche Mode, but we got a new solid electro clash band.

I like Client's earlier production for their clinical sounds and style, but unfortunately some of it has disappeared in this latest release and it tends to be more... mainstream. Gone are the monotone and emotionless layout of "Client" and we get more techno disco tracks like "Make Me Believe In You". This means more radio pop and less underground electro and I'm not quite sure that is the step I'd like Client to take, even though you can see the tendencies for every release they have made since their debut album 'Client' in 2003.

There are some nice electro tunes like "Your Love Is Like Petrol", "Lullaby" and "Ghosts", but overall I think it's a bit to much of bubblegum pop and it clashes with their strict image.
