Com.Pulsion - Machines
Synthpop If someone spontaneously would have played Com.Pulsion's debut album 'Machines' for me I would have, with great confidence, guessed that it was a new album from De/Vision. I would even be so sure that I would place some of my hard earned salary in a bet that it was De/Vision with some new material. If the band members in De/Vision have not moved to Spain, been in Extreme Makeover and changed their names to Luis Alcazar, Juan Rodriguez, Miguel Lacal my guess is that we can assume that it's another band we are talking about, the band is Com.Pulsion.

Even though Com.Pulsion easy slip through as the earlier mentioned name very easy in the beginning, this opinion changes pretty fast after you listen to the album a few times. As prejudice you might be sometimes, synthpop from Spain didn't sound that groovy, but I got smacked, really hard to.

Excellent synthpop that touches techno pop since the song "Be a part" makes me think of Daft Punk of some reason. I really don't know what scares me most, that I think the song is really soft and nice or that I sing along in a phrase like "Let's make crazy things, Aaahh, yeah!".

The debut 'Machines' is a very stable album and are all through filled with nice material. There are also some sounds that you haven't heard a billion times before, which is very positive. Impressive!
