Je$us Loves Amerika - Breathe
Electro-Industrial Now, I remember when I was young, I was always told, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Well, that rule never really went well with me, and it doesn't apply to this site at all. Which is why I'm glad that I write reviews for this site, because I'm allowed to be as brutal as I possibly can be in what I say. And with that stated, I shout at you all and declare that this EP is a grand piece of shit.

Je$us Loves Amerika is an act composed of three men together, those being Patrick Dougan, Brydon Cheyney, and Anthony Johnston. And, I have indulged in their prior albums before moving onto this one. And their previous work, specifically that of 2002's 'Advanced Burial Technology' really wasn't that bad. But I can't find that much of a redeeming factor for 'Breathe'.

The title song of the EP, "Breathe Single V2", is a repetitive mess that begins off a little promising with a nice, danceable beat flowing through, but then continues to repeat, and repeat, and repeat. The music becomes annoying after a while, and the vocals have this really irritating echo effect to them that I just absolutely abhorred half way through the song.

And then there are four remixes of the same track, and each one of them are just as horrendous as the last. I really don't have much to say for them other than that I advise you not to listen to it, but if you wish to torture yourself, or you're just into the whole masochistic fetish, please, feel free to listen to these tracks.

And the only other two songs present within the album are two other remixes of the songs "ExitStrategy" and "FYA". And neither of those two do much to save the album, either.

I have to admit, I'm quite disappointed with this EP, because Je$us Loves Amerika has actually proven in the past that they can be quite capable of making some kick ass music. But 'Breathe' made me want to suffocate myself. Call me suicidal, but I think that's a better option than listening to this all over again.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
