F.O.D. - Crucified
Futurepop The album 'Crucified' is the German duo F.O.D's third release after two MCD's. The track that got my attention is the first track "Electricity" and it's a lovely danceable, instrumental electro pearl. It is that type of track that makes the DJ place a heavy object on the smoke machine button and turn on all the flashy lights: the crowd goes wild and will soon sweat like pigs before Christmas time.

You can probably guess what type of face i did when the second track "Let's fly tonight" began: From the mighty first track to utterly boring and dull synthpop/futurepop. The singer Daniel's voice is just awful. Even though you could sometimes discern the lovely loops and beats that made you think of the first track, the whole thing rots away with the greasy singing and the futurepop-attitude.

Though the album has its glimpses, it's still a huge disappointment. What began so good, ended with dullness, monotony and boredom.
