Culture Kultür - Spirit
Electro, Futurepop Spanish Culture Kultür have been around for soon 20 years, still they have managed to pass me by until just a few weeks ago when a friend told me to check out their MySpace. Not long after that, I got their latest album 'Spirit' for reviewing, funny when life turns out that way.

Culture Kultür is probably best described as Futurepop with their nice melodies, steady and pounding danceable beat and nice vocals. The album opens up with one of my favourite tracks "Sieged" which has a bit darker tone to it. Already on the third song we get a surprise, a cover of the old Joy Division classic "Love Will Tear Us Apart", usually covers comes way back in the end, but it is sure an interesting choice to just smash it in there in the middle of everything.

The fourth track "Dead Second" does not use its full potential in my opinion, building up slowly and after a very emotional scream you expect a real increase of phase and goose bumps, but it feels like the punch is lacking. My absolute favourite tracks are coming three in a row, the great "Unforgiven", "Never Again" and the amazing "Toxic Pulse".

This album will probably be like a wet dream for all fans of Frozen Plasma, NamNamBulu and Seabound. However, I do not feel that Culture Kultür have maxed out all that could have been.
