Code 64 - Trialogue
Synthpop, Futurepop The long awaited new Code 64 album is finally here. It's been four years since 'Departure' and now it's time for 'Trialogue' and Code 64's new singer Bjørn to flex their muscles.

Just like the single 'Stasis', 'Trialogue' have a more dance oriented sound, a bit less futurepop and more dance electro futurepop ebm-mix thingy. To pinpoint one single definition of the sound is as hard to describe it. It's something you probably need to experience for yourself.

It's a bit exaggerated to say that I did some ranting over "Stasis" in my single review, but I was not just that pleased with it at that point. Somewhat funny is though that the track "Stasis" feels much more right at home in the company of this album. Perhaps it's a matter of surrounding concept, with the 'Stasis' single, I was still in the mindset of 'Departure', while as a part of the album, it fits like a glove.

There's a bunch of newborn Code 64 classics on this album. "Deviant", "Progenitor", "Higher Ground", "S.O.L", "Masquerade", "Tell Me", "Close Encounters / Hyperdrive", and even the calmer tracks "Oblivion" and "Reefersleep". Hell, most of the tracks are in the range from good to great. There are actually just two tracks that feels a bit misplaced and that is "Technocraft v.64" and "Advanced Robotics". In themselves, especially "Advanced Robotics", are pretty good tracks with a nice flow and rhythm, but smacked together with my long list of great tracks, they feel out of place like the Mona Lisa with cybernetic implants.

In the end, I can't do much else than give this album Patrik's official seal of Brutal approval. Go buy it, and that means both you Code 64 fans as well as curious readers of danceable elect... ah, never mind, I'm not going to try to define it again.
