Cyclotimia - Trivial Pleasures
Dark Ambient, Industrial Cyclotimia from Russia have got a bunch of releases behind them when this MCD 'Trivial Pleasure' was released in 2003. It's the first part in the trilogy L'Electronique Mondial, a trilogy that at least I got big expectations on. The MCD is kind of a soundtrack to the stock market and the money flow over the earth. The music is based on different samples from different media and more industrial sounds.

The music on 'Trivial Pleasures' differs a lot from Cyclotimia's earlier works that is based on more industrial and heavy sounds combined with great sound-capes and experiences. Here they've focused on those sounds coming from digital numbers and economy. One of the tracks sounds pretty much like a jackpot on a slot machine.

Some songs are worth some extra attention like "Market Experts", ".99" and "Office Comfort" that is the best songs. I would like to give this record the rating 8, but the song "NASDAQ" is really annoying and therefore I rate this record a total of 7. I still think this is a great record and it defiantly deserves a place in the CD-shelf.
